Book Description

KISS OF DECEIT, Book Three, Winds of Betrayal Series
Previously titled Ruse of Love

The tides of war have shifted. When all eyes turn south, Doctor Jonathan Corbett finds himself once more thrust into the war’s turmoil. On assignment from General Washington, the dashing doctor discovers his mission has taken him straight into a conflict where the British are not the only ones to be feared.

Rebekah Morse has no time to contemplate the exploding war around her. Caught up as a pawn in a deadly conspiracy, she finds her only hope lies with her old friend, but things have changed since they last saw each other.

Yet destiny has not intervened in their lives without cause. Rebekah’s strength, courage, and breathtaking sensuality set within Jonathan a desire he swore never to feel again. When Rebekah’s life is threatened, Jonathan is determined to save the stubborn woman whether she wants to be saved or not. Now Jonathan and Rebekah must face the perilous threat together—only to discover a passion they never imagined...

Praise for KISS OF DECEIT

"Kiss of Deceit weaves together a fine tapestry of romance and history. With intense emotion and passion the characters come alive on the page and engage you from the opening chapters. Author Jerri Hines has cleverly crafted her story around the war torn south with such rich detail it makes you feel as though you are right there in the midst of the American Revolution."
—Cynthia Vespia

THE CRY FOR FREEDOM, Book One Winds of Betrayal

A rousing family saga for the fight for America's independence. Follow Hannah and Jonathan Corbett path to Freedom!

The winds of change brews over the colonies. Tension against the crown is mounting daily. In Williamsburg, the rebellion burns strong in the hearts of two siblings, Jonathan and Hannah Corbett. Spirited and headstrong, Hannah finds herself thrust in the middle of a conspiracy when her father receives a strange package from Philadelphia. Jonathan, a physician for the Continental Army, is torn between duty and family. With war looming on the horizon, the siblings soon discover there is a high price to be paid for the cry for freedom.

The Saga continues….

Embrace of the Enemy, Book Two, Winds of Betrayal

It's a dangerous game you set to play, Miss Corbett. One that can have far worse than deadly consequences!

In the midst of the struggle of America's bid for independence, Hannah Corbett makes a fateful decision, descending into a world of deceit. Spurred by revenge, she heads to New York, setting in motion a dangerous game for which there is no return. Searching desperately for the man who betrayed her family, she faces the cold and brutal reality of the life of a spy. Caught in a web of lies, living with betrayal, she is trapped. She has nowhere to turn except to a man it would be treasonous to love, setting duty and desire at war. Her heart is ripped apart when she must choose between the man who risks his career and life to protect her and the only thing that has remained constant in her life...her belief in her cause.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kept me Intrigued August 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'll admit it, I like history so I have a tendency to read Regency romance. But, I was so intrigued with a romance set during the American Revolution that I couldn't wait to try it. After reading Ruse of Love, I can't wait to go back and read Patriot Secrets.
I loved the backdrop of the Revolution and how the author took us from the battlefields to the high society of the South. The story and mystery kept me guessing the whole time. Who was good? Who was bad? The characters were well developed and I felt for them during this chaotic time in history. The story wrapped up nicely and, since I don't want to spoil it, let's just say it was great!
If you like Kathleen Woodiwiss or are interested in the Revolution period, you will love this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars American Revolution Gem August 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Ruse of Love really brings to life how difficult, dangerous, and gritty the American Revolution was. Set against that backdrop is a secret plot involving Rebekah. As a naive young girl of fifteen, she has a crush on Dr. Jonathan Corbett. Sadly, he has married another. When Rebekah's parents die, she's thrust into a difficult situation for the sake of her younger siblings. She tries to make the best of it in 'Charles Town,' with the help of her friends, but some mysterious person is intent on causing her harm. When she's kidnapped, she falls into the power of an attractive and deadly rogue, Black Rory. She loses her innocence, but not her goodness. How Rebekah ultimately finds love and happiness is an engaging journey.

I really enjoyed Ruse of Love. Hines creates very sympathetic characters in Rebekah, Jonathan, and even Black Rory. I wasn't sure who I was rooting for to win Rebakah's heart... Black Rory or Jonathan! I'd recommend this book for anyone with an interest in the American Revolution, the deep South, or romance literature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read! September 18, 2012
By K J
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Captivating and intriguing! It was a great return to Rebekah's story. The romance is my favorite part, but I really enjoyed the historical content too! This book captures the heart of a woman who is capable and strong, but also has that desire & vulnerability that we all have when in love. A must read follow-up to Patriots Secrets!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Kept my attention April 1, 2013
By Kydonna
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have now finished this third book in the "Winds of Betrayal" series. I enjoyed all three books and look forward to the fourth due out next year. I must again say that it was a shame that such a good plot of history and romance was tainted by all the typos and words just not being in the right place, etc. If this series had not been full of those errors, I would have rated all three books 5 stars. I am hope that by the time the 4th book comes out, this problem will be solved.

Plots and more plots about in this wonderfully complex, exciting and fast-paced tale of love, revenge and honor set in the Carolinas during the American Revolutionary War.

The American Revolution we learned about from dry history books comes alive with real people suffering the hardships of war. The plight of naïve, downtrodden Rebekah, suffering for crimes she didn't commit, is heartbreaking. Jonathan, surgeon in the Continental Army, is honorable, loyal and a hero to die for. Not all snakes slither in the grass, and Ms. Hines has created several genuinely evil, but true to life and the period, villains.

The best part of the story is Jonathan. A truly heroic man, but also human in his quest to avenge and protect those, especially his family, whom the tides of war have harmed. His fiery patriotism dims but never falters as he continues his support of the American cause while he ministers to the sick as well as navigates the politics (there are always politics) of the different factions fighting the British.

Ms. Hines's heroes are heroic, her villains villainous, and the backdrop of the war makes everything play out with an intensity not possible in peacetime. A big story, and although we know who won, we wonder how the characters will fare even as we reach "The End".

2.0 out of 5 stars Confusing and unromantic. February 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My three biggest complaints about this book:
1. Sentence structure was awkward and words were not used properly or in the correct tense.
2. There were too many characters involved. It was difficult to remember all of the names and how people were related to each other; most of the characters were superfluous anyway.
3. The plot was too complicated. Complexities didn't add to the story, just made it more difficult to read.
Now that being said I can forgive a book all these atrocities if it's got great romance. (Because shoot, don't a hot kiss fix all?) Unfortunately this book was tap water warm at best.
Would not recommend.
