Ellis Dumont finds a man in New Orleans Grey unconscious on Dumont property in 1836. As his fevers rage, the man mutters strange things about treasures and war. Either Claiborne Gentry has lost his mind or he’s a spy for the American president—or worse, for the Mexican enemy that threatens their very lives. With the men of her family away, Ellis must stand courageous and decide who she can trust. Will she put her selfish wants ahead of the future of the republic or travel with Clay to Mission San Jose to help end the war?
I inhaled this story like a hungry book dragon! I enjoyed the lively banter between the characters, the mystery of hidden treasure, and the rich historical details that all gave this story a life of its own. My only disappointment was that because I read it so fast, it was over too soon. But I just couldn’t put it down!
Ellis is a lot like her grandmother, Maribel. She is independent, feisty, and often leaps into a situation before she looks. Ellis is also a skilled healer and her sensitivity and heart for others shine through, often to her own jeopardy.
Claiborne Gentry has an important mission to accomplish, but a run-in with a couple of trigger happy foe’s leads to lost memory. If only he could remember what it is he is supposed to be doing before the time runs out on his mission.
This newest addition to The Daughter’s of the Mayflower collection is a page-turning adventure that you won’t want to miss! The story easily stands on its own, however, the other stories in this collection are just as fabulous! Be sure to snag your copy of The Alamo Bride today.
