Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: An assassination plot that could end the Civil War, and a hidden enemy that could destroy a secret league of unsung heroes ... Daniel Cumberland, born free in Massachusetts, studied law with dreams of helping his people--dreams that died the night he was kidnapped and sold into slavery. Daniel is rescued, but he's a changed man. When he's offered entry into the Loyal League, the covert organization of Black spies who helped free him, he seizes the opportunity for vengeance against the Confederacy and those who support it. When the Union Army occupies the Florida home of Cuban Janeta Sanchez, daughter of an enslaved woman and the plantation owner who married her, her family's wealth does not protect her father from being imprisoned. Under duress and blaming herself for the arrest, Janeta agrees to infiltrate a group called the Loyal League as a double agent--and finds a cause truly worth the sacrifice. Daniel is aggravated by the headstrong and much too observant new detective he's paired with, and Janeta is intrigued by the broken but honorable man she is tasked with betraying. As they embark on a mission to intercept Jefferson Davis and thwart European meddling, their dual hidden agendas are threatened by the ghosts of their pasts and a growing affection that could strengthen both the Union and their souls--or lead to their downfall.

    *Starred Review* After being kidnapped, sold into slavery, beaten, and broken, Daniel Cumberland is now free and wants his revenge. Torturous memories of what he endured on the plantation before he was rescued and brought back home to Illinois make it impossible for Daniel to live a normal life. Anger and trauma provoke him to join the Loyal League as a rogue agent hell-bent on destroying the Confederacy and, in some ways, himself. But then he meets his new League partner, Janeta Sanchez. The light-skinned daughter of a rich Cuban man and his enslaved wife, Janeta is more able to blend in, but her secret motive for joining this underground spy network is to protect her family, not to save her people. Once she finally sees the harsh reality of slavery, however, she realizes that she must decide which side of this uncivil war she is truly on. Their relationship grows slowly as Janeta and Daniel pursue their mission and try to determine if they're fighting for the same noble cause. This third and hopefully not last installment in Cole's Loyal League series, following A Hope Divided (2017), is historical romance at its finest. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
