Overview

Set against the turbulent historical background of the War of 1812, this star-crossed romance pits a grieving English nobleman, James Armstrong, the fourteenth duke of Kinross, who has come to America bent on avenging the death of his elder brother, the thirteenth duke, who was betrayed to American troops and executed. He is in pursuit of the Gilded Lily, a spy-catcher of formidable reputation and great skill. When he finds his prey, he is dismayed to discover that the Lily is no common soldier; “she” is eighteen-year-old Lily Hawthorn, the beautiful raven-haired daughter of a tavern owner with sapphire eyes and a daring spirit.

James kidnaps Lily and her eight-year-old brother and returns with them to England, intending to keep them prisoner until the end of the war. He decides to make her fall in love with him—and then break her heart but all romantic hell breaks out when he himself falls in love.

    Enjoyable Historical

    In 1812 Boston, Lily Hawthorne is a tavern owner¿s daughter who is recruited by her half-brother Seth to aid the war effort. She is known as the Gilded Lily and has an amazing ability to remember codes and pass them on. Though warned by her brother and Bradley Howell, her fiancé, not to complete her next assignment, she goes ahead with it anyway. <br><br> Unfortunately, Lily and her brother Michael are captured by James Armstrong, Duke of Kinross. He has vowed to capture and kill the Gilded Lily whom he believes responsible for the death of his older brother Hugh, who was hung in America as a British spy. James¿ plans change when he discovers that the Gilded Lily is a woman, and he decides to keep her prisoner at his estate in England until the end of the war. <br><br> But Lily is not just any woman. She is incredibly intelligent, very resourceful, and fiercely protective of her brother Michael, who was born with a disability. James falls hard for Lily but refuses to let her know that he loves her, and Lily is heartbroken at his callous treatment of her. Things do not go as planned for James when he is forced to explain Lily¿s presence in England to his mother and aunts. <br><br> Ms. Grasso has written an enjoyable historical with plenty of wit and tension between the hero and heroine. The heroine is especially likeable with plenty of backbone and spunk. Though the characters could be more developed, this is a pleasing fast-paced read.
