“When it comes to historical fiction, no one—and I do mean no one—charts a course for romantic adventure like MaryLu Tyndall, the Queen of the Seas when it comes to love, liberty, and the pursuit of a story that will steal both your heart and your sleep.”
–Julie Lessman, award-winning author of The Daughters of Boston, Winds of Change, and Isle of Hope series
“The Liberty Bride has all the ingredients of a great Tyndall read—richly-textured historical setting, feisty heroine, strong and honorable hero, all interwoven with a thread of unyielding faith. I’ve long been a fan of her work, and this one did not disappoint!”
–Shannon McNear, 2014 RITA® finalist and author of The Cumberland Bride
“You only need to read one line on the back cover of MaryLu Tyndall’s latest novel, The Liberty Bride, to know she has once again given readers a swashbuckling adventure of romance and intrigue that she is so admired for. Who can resist the tale of a woman captive aboard a British warship, while her allegiances are tested and a romance grows for a first lieutenant? I know I can’t.”
–Rita Gerlach, author of the Daughters of the Potomac Series and other Christian romances
“MaryLu Tyndall never fails to deliver a spine-tingling, faith-inspiring story. The Liberty Bride is no exception. From page one, through many dangerous adventures to a satisfying conclusion, this novel will thrill and delight Tyndall’s readers and have them eagerly anticipating her next epic tale.”
–Louise M. Gouge, award-winning historical romance author
“In true MaryLu Tyndall fashion, MaryLu gives her readers another exciting adventure on the sea. Danger lurks around every corner and suspense on every page. This is one you won’t want to miss!”

"I try so hard to be good, but sometimes it seems the world, or perhaps God, is against me."
Just hours after musing about what it would feel like to escape her impending life of stuffy expectations by plunging into the sea, Emeline Barratt is trapped on board a Royal British Navy vessel as a prisoner of war. Prompted by her travel companion to use her feminine wiles to full advantage, she feigns allegiance to Britain; using her recent stay in England with a great aunt to corroborate her story.
Lieutenant Owen Masters is walking a fine line, serving aboard the HMS Marauder while he gathers intelligence information for the American military. Shocked to discover a beautiful young woman on board as a prisoner, Owen thinks her to be a co-patriot until she spouts off her true loyalties to his captain. Except that she is an enigma, using her nursing skills to treat both American and British soldiers, while quietly deflecting attention off of herself. The women that Owen has known, and there have been quite a few of them, never seemed to think about anyone but themselves.
When duty forces Owen and Emeline to share a dangerous mission, the mantra "give me liberty or give me death" rings loud and clear. This heart throbbing tale, with its boatloads of riveting history and war time romance, showcases this author's signature ability to craft an enticing adventure on the high seas, during the war of 1812.
Throughout this book they each have strong believers that are doing all they can to help them learn to trust God and rely on Him. I loved their separate journeys and how they intersect at various times.
This author has a marvelous talent for writing pirate and privateer stories. This book doesn’t disappoint in this aspect. She has included plenty of action to keep the excitement level up. Her description of sailing vessels and all things involved in sailing in the early 1800s is fantastic.
