Love is like war: easy to begin but very hard to end.
The American Colonies, 1776
As the flames of revolution spread across a divided land, a shadowy figure prowls the streets of Philadelphia, preying on silk-stockings loyal to the British Crown. Known only as Jack Flash, rebel highwayman, he plays a daring game of cat-and-mouse for the patriot cause, always one step ahead of his enemies. Until the night he tangles with a Loyalist lady whose fiery spirit could spell his doom.
Alexandra Pennington never dreamed of feeling drawn to a rebel who opposes everything she believes in. The very notion of falling under his spell seems absurd. More importantly, she has promised to marry a charismatic king’s man suited to her in so many ways that matter. The sensible choice for her is clear…
From the drawing rooms of Philadelphia to the battlefields of an emerging nation, one woman stands between two men fighting for love and honor in a war destined to change all their lives forever.
