Rating: 5 Cups
Meriwether Steele has a lot going on in her life. She is recovering from a serious illness at her guardian’s home; one haunted by his past wife. Her father has passed away, and with his passing she finds out that there is more to her beloved dad than she thought.
Jeremiah Jordan knows that Meriwether fancies herself in love with him. Because of a deathbed promise to his dying wife, he cannot ever remarry and refuses to even consider a relationship with his beautiful ward. As if the sexual tension between them was not bad enough, his home is invaded by British soldiers and she is caught in the middle.
After fighting for the man she loves, Meriwether must run or be hung for treason. She has always considered herself to be a Loyalist, but finding out that her beloved is a Patriot, she is torn between her country and Jeremiah. As her flight continues, Meriwether finds herself not only fighting for the love of her guardian, but for her very life and she discovers a strength that gives credit to the Steele name. But will her determination and unbreakable will be enough to stave off a man willing to do anything to destroy the man she loves and have her in his arms himself?
Enemy of the King is an amazing and vibrant look into the American Revolutionary War and tells the story through the eyes of a remarkable woman. While Jeremiah Jordan himself is a strong soldier and heroic patriot, it is Meriwether Steele who makes such a great impression in this epic novel. Her dedication to the man she loves, the lengths she must go to defend herself and others, and the unstoppable force that she is makes Meriwether one heck of a heroine. Ms. Trissel brings the countryside and its people alive with her fascinating and at times gory details. This sexy historical book is a must read!
