The Turncoat

Characters é The Turncoat í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Donna Thorland ↠ 6 Free read Free read The Turncoat They are lovers on opposite sides of a brutal war with everything at stake and no possibility of retreat They can trust no one especially not each other Major Lord Peter Tremayne is the last man rebel bluestocking Kate Grey should fall in love with but when the handsome British viscount commandeers her home Kate throws caution to the wind and responds to his seduction She is on the verge of surrender when a spy in her own household seizes. I had high hopes for this novel I really enjoy historical fiction and the novel mentioned many historically accurate battles and figures but the author threw all this away by making the centered female character a hussy for a handsome british soldier and his eually attractive cousin slash half brother spoiler alert but not really because it s completely obvious from very early on but the author still tries to make it some jaw dropping revelation and it all ends up being super anti climactic and unnecessary because it does very little for the plot The author had this incredible way to show the American Revolution form a woman s perspective She had set up a great way to show it through a character that was linked with actual events and people but she justfor lack of a better phrasetook a dump on it all and demeaned this character and all that she did by making her just as sex starved as all the other woman in modern novels And this woman was a uaker and of course that doesn t bode well for the story because she needs to have sex with both the steamy british soldier and his abusive but also kind what half brother How demeaning Don t worry though because she is still conflicted when it comes to spying on the loyalists because of her uaker roots even though her father works for General Washington Because that just makes a whole lot of sense

I pretty much agree with these reviews but my rating is 35 starsJill s Review the Pirate Wench s Review s review Finished this book in early February I ve been a real slacker lately in terms of reviews this book is one of 12 books still sitting in my currently reading pile If I had rated this shortly after reading I think I would have given this 45 5 Stars I ve had some time to think and this heroines ease at falling into un uaker like behavior doesn t sit well with me Though I m not a uaker years ago I used to attend meeting on Sunday and was active with their community read their pamphlets and read some of their published religious literature I know a little about the uakers not an expert but have experience with itThe author has expert knowledge of the time period events etc currently the author writes for a Tv show called Salem And it shows This is heavier on the history than we might be used to in HR Writing HF is a side hustle for this author and is the pity By now now I have completed 34 of this series and it is all kinds of amazing Don t let my uibble stop you if you want to try this This was an excellent read and very excitingCaveat Pay close attention to the minor and supporting characters They either show up again or are discussed in subseuent books in a way that they are a part of the other books even if the character doesn t have on page dialog The underlying sub plot of this war and it s activities is spread out across these books so pay attention

Characters é The Turncoat í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Donna Thorland ↠ 6 Free read Free read The Turncoat For his current assignment to capture the woman he believes betrayed him Nor does he relish the glittering entertainments being held for General Howe’s idle officers Worse the glamorous woman in the midst of this social whirl the fiancée of his own dissolute cousin is none other than Kate Grey herself And so begins their dangerous dance between passion and patriotism between certain death and the promise of a brave new future together. I am going to start this review off by saying this isn t a Romance even though it is being reviewed on several Romance sites I am usually a reader of historical romance because straight historical fiction tends to bore me to tears Nothing about this book even approximates boring It held me riveted I mean take a long lunch break kind of riveted because I couldn t bear to put it down and return to my deskThorland masterfully crafts Kate Grey as a uaker woman turned Rebel spy who remains true to herself even as she changes into someone she doesn t recognize The Revolutionay War was heart wrenching and harrowing and Thorland shows it in all its unsentimental detail She doesn t need to embellish it her scenes suggesting rape or worse don t need details to shock even as we understand and abhor that such things happen in war There is a hero and an anti hero whom both tug at Kate s heart and enough historical detail to keep the time period front and center without losing a reader with a short attention span My favorite part of this book however was the writing The prose is breathtaking without being florid Thorland writes like Ken Follett at his best High praise as Follet is one of my all time favorite authorsMy only criticism of the book is the ending and I actually have to give kudos to Ms Thorland for not giving into what was surely an urge to gift the protagonists with a story book ending I wanted a happily ever after must be the romance reader in me I didn t get it Nor did I get clear closure on why the anti hero made the choices he did in the end against what seemed to be clear motivating factors on his part However I am adult enough to acknowledge that doesn t make the ending wrong Wonderful job and I can t wait to see what Ms Thorland produces next
