“Passion Governs and she never governs wisely.”
That quote by Benjamin Franklin gives a powerful feel for the turbulent atmosphere that swept the country during the American Revolution. I spent years researching and writing historical romance novel, ENEMY OF THE KING, an exciting journey back to the drama and romance of that time period, with a focus on the Southern face of the war. Think Carolina backcountry and Francis Marion, 'the Swamp Fox.'
Blurb: 1780, South Carolina: While Loyalist Meriwether Steele recovers from illness in the stately home of her beloved guardian, Jeremiah Jordan, she senses the haunting presence of his late wife. When she learns that Jeremiah is a Patriot spy and shoots Captain Vaughan, the British officer sent to arrest him, she is caught up on a wild ride into Carolina back country, pursued both by the impassioned captain and the vindictive ghost. Will she remain loyal to her king and Tory twin brother or risk a traitor’s death fighting for Jeremiah? If Captain Vaughan snatches her away, he won’t give her a choice."~
ENEMY OF THE KING currently has 13 Five Star reviews at Amazon, and nothing less. I don't have any control over what readers leave there so this strikes me as significant, but it also means not enough people are reading it. Every story has its critics. Come out, come out, wherever you are. But first, you have to read the book. If you'd like to take the challenge and see if ENEMY OF THE KING lives up to its reputation, I welcome your thoughts.
