New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Grace Burrowes delivers a passionate, danger-filled Regency romance…
The past will overtake him…
Abandoned in France since boyhood, despite being heir to an English barony, Sebastian St. Clair makes impossible choices to survive a tour of duty in the French Army. He returns to England hoping for the peaceful life of a country gentleman, though old enemies insist on challenging him on the field of honor, one after another.
But this time, he will not fight alone…
Millicent Danforth desperately needs her position as companion to the Traitor Baron’s aunt, but grieves to learn that Sebastian must continually fight a war long over. As Sebastian and Milly explore their growing passion, they uncover a plot that will cost Sebastian his life and his honor, unless he does battle once more-this time in the name of love.
THE TRAITOR by Grace Burrowes is a thrilling Historical Romance. #2 in the “Captive Hearts” trilogy, but can be read as a stand alone. I would strongly suggest reading book 1 The Captive (Captive Hearts), to get the jest of things.
This is Sebastian St. Clair and Millicent Danforth’s story.
Sebastian, is a English Baron, in his own rights, but he is also half French, half English, and caught in France during the war, while visiting his French. He was enlisted by the French Army. With difficult choices, he tries to survive with many of those choices leaving him scarred and tortured himself. Considered a Traitor, by both sides, Sebastian is trying to make a life for himself and his devoted Aunt.
Millicent, has secrets of her own, but desperately yearns to help Sebastian with his tortured soul. He is constantly battling a war of his own and With growing passion, danger lurks just around the corner in the name of his nemesis. Not only his Sebastian constantly challenged to duels, he is fighting his desire for Millicent, and finding his way after his difficult choices he made in France.
Fast paced, action packed. Filled with danger, suspense, emotional turmoil, romance, passion, the true meaning of friendship, healing, forgiveness and the power of love. You can’t go wrong this is amazing tale of sacrifice and love.
Well written with vivid descriptions of the countryside, the dangers, and the turmoil of the characters.
