The Magnolia Duchess - Golf Coast Chronicles 3 - by Beth White

Cover Art

About the book:

As the War of 1812 rages across the newly formed United States, another war rages in Fiona Lanier's heart--one that threatens to tear her family apart.
Fiona can scarcely take in the news of her brother's capture and imprisonment by the British Navy. It is almost as unbelievable as the half-drowned British sailor who is washed ashore on the beach of Navy Cove.

Charlie Kincaid claims to have no memory of his life before being discovered by Fiona, but in a world that seems saturated with treachery, she cannot be sure he is telling the truth.
As Charlie's memory returns in agonizing jags and crashes, he and Fiona discover that falling in love may be as inevitable as the tide. But when political allegiances collide, they'll each have to decide where their true loyalty lies.

My review:

This was an interesting historical romance set during a time period I had a lot to learn about.  I didn't remember much about the War of 1812 and this story helped fill in some of the gaps.  There was plenty of action as Fiona seems to get in one situation after another.  She was a fun and very independent character;  I liked Charlie, too, as he was more of a mischievous charmer.  Their romance was sweet and so were the romances between two other couples in the story.  There were a lot of characters to keep track of, as Fiona seemed to be related to everybody, and it did get a little confusing.  Fiona had a strong faith and it was nice to see how Charlie's developed over the course of the book, and how it affected him.  I liked the spy element, too, as you weren't sure if Charlie was a spy, and how that might affect Charlie and Fiona later in the story.  This worked well as a stand-alone.  I would recommend it if you like historical romance.

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
