The Duke's Redemption

The Duke's Redemption
Written By Carla Capshaw

Grade: B+
Kindle Price: $3.79



       Brace yourself for this heart-breaker. Set in 1782, nearly the end of the American Revolution, Miss Elise Cooper works as the Patriot spy in Charles Towne, South Carolina. Unfortunetly, her "dear, and close friend/spy" known as Hawk, turns out to be a Brit and means to turn Elise, also known as "The Fox", to the Redcoats. As the two struggle, in accidently firing, Hawk is shot and killed.
       Now, Elise escapes British holdings and flees to safety of her American spymaster, Zechariah Sayer and close friend, whom is also a spy, Christian Sayer. Elise learns to hide her identity from the British, and she tries to survive throughout the war as a spy.
       Little does Elise know, Hawk's brother, Drake Amberly, the Duke of Hawk Haven, just so happens to arrive in the colonies in search of his brother's murderer, Fox. Drake arrives and meets Elise at a ball as a trader thinking of shipping with Zechariah between the colonies and England. It's Elise's job to figure out Drake's secrets.
       While Elise is suppose to be spying on Drake to release her enslaved sister from Zechariah's control, she comes to fall more and more for this mysterious man everyday. Elise begins to think that Drake has nothing to do with the war, and soon they marry. All the while, Drake is searching for The Fox before he returns to England with Elise, and soon his spies catch up to The Fox.
       In this Historical Romance novel, with an inspirational Christian view, Drake and Elise are truly put to the ultimate test in overcoming their fears, hatred, and secrets in a time of war. Can Drake forgive Elise for her betrayal to the Mother Country? In her betrayal to him? And her committed crimes? Find out in Carla Capshaw's great novel, "The Duke's Redemption".

       Personally, I loved this novel. It showed Elise and Drake's struggle throughout the war, their hate, and their love. Capshaw included many examples for others to see how you can look to God when in need of help, and how he answers our prayers. I would definitely recommend this novel, and I'm sure it will inspire others too.
