WoW #41: Captured by Love by Jody Hedlund

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Captured by Love by Jody Hedlund
Series: Michigan Brides, #3
Bethany House, July 2014

It is 1814 and the British have taken hold of Mackinac Island and its fort, forcing American residents to swear an oath of loyalty to the British crown in order to retain their land. Pierre Durant is a voyageur--a fur trader who left his family home to find freedom and adventure. He's been gone five years and when he returns, his family's farm is at the mercy of the British invaders.

Torn between the life he's grown used to and guilt over leaving his brother and mother, he's drawn back into the loyalist fight against the British--and into a relationship with Angelique Labelle, a beautiful local girl who's been befriended by the daughter of the British commander. As tensions mount and the threat of violence increases, both Angelique and Pierre must decide where their loyalties rest, how far they will go to find freedom, and how much they will risk to find love.

Why I want to read it
I really enjoyed all of the books this author has written (well, ok A Noble Groom wasn't my favorite) but I absolutely loved Rebellious Heart. She understands history and has a knack for writing good historical fiction - a genre I love.

Pre-order it:
Amazon ($11.24 / $9.99) and ChristianBooks ($8.99 / 9.69) and Barnes and Noble ($11.09 / $10.49)
(Prices good as of April 26, 2014, check for yourself before purchasing.)
