Book Description

Winds of Betrayal, Book Three

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...

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!!

Discovering this historical romance set around the American Revolution is a refreshing and compelling read especially if you love romance and American history.

I really enjoyed Ruse of Love and look forward to reading more by this author!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars YOU WILL LOVE KISS OF DECEIT!!!! September 22, 2014
By Fayth97
Format:Kindle Edition
Can I just say WOW!!!! What an AWESOME, impossible to put down book!!! I was up until 5:00am reading, & actually had to force myself to put it down & go to bed. Jerri is truly gifted as a writer. I had high expectations when I began reading Kiss of Deceit having previously read books she has written under her other pen names: Colleen Connally, & Carrie James Haynes. Books which I enjoyed immensely, & I was not disappointed.
Jerri weaves a story of love & betrayal. A story of strength & of faith. She captures the essence of the era so well that you feel as if you were indeed living it. Her characters are realistic as they face the obstacles, & trials that are thrown in their path. As the reader I felt their fears, their anger, their frustrations, their strength & determination as they fought to overcome them. I experienced their joy,& their sense of accomplishment, as they conquered each one. I felt the love, & the passion they experienced. It says a lot as to how talented, & how dedicated an author is when they can touch a person so deeply, that they are not only reading a book, but that they are actually living out the story themself. This is definitely a must read!!

More About the Author

I'm a Southern gal that has lived the last thirty years near Boston with my Yankee husband. The funny thing is that as a Southerner I know I'm Southern; he hasn't a clue he's a Yankee. I believe in love and the power it holds. It is the reason I write romances. My fascination for history has inspired many of my books including the Winds of Betrayal and Tide of Charleston Series both set during the American Revolution. Coming soon, I will release a Civil War saga, the Southern Legacy Series beginning with Belle of Charleston.

I, also, write under the pen name Colleen Connally. Secret Lives, a historical romance series, is riddled with romantic suspense and a touch of paranormal. Fragmented, Book One Boston's Crimes of Passion, marks my first contemporary suspense thriller.

I am also a supporter of The One Fund, a charity that supports the Boston Marathon Bombing victims, and the Alzheimer's Association.
