If you haven’t read the Trilogy yet, here’s a little tease:

Is love worth fighting for when it crosses enemy lines?

Sweeping Southern fiction that embodies the classic elements of duty, honor…and unexpected love.

History is brought to life in this epic Trilogy when a renowned Confederate cavalry officer discovers that the woman he promised his dying brother he would protect, is the Union spy he vowed to his men he would destroy. This timeless love story illuminates the fine line between friends and enemies at a time when traditions and principles were worth defending at all costs.

This is the tale of Colonel Alexander Hunter, a dauntless and daring Confederate cavalry officer, who, with his band of intrepid outcasts, becomes a legend in the rolling hills of northern Virginia. Inspired by love of country and guided by a sense of duty and honor, Hunter must make a desperate choice when his mysterious foe falls into his hands in enemy territory.

Should he keep his promise to his brother? Or continue to fight for his beliefs?

Just when a truce appears to be reached, a misunderstanding takes place that starts a catastrophic chain of events. The result is a vivid, raw, emotional and poignant clash of personalities as both characters fight to defend their beliefs, their principles and their honor.

This moving tale of dueling convictions, impossible choices, and enduring love is destined  for an honored place among the classics of the American Civil War.
