The Turncoat: Renegades of the Revolution

When handsome British viscount Major Lord Peter Tremayne commandeers her home, rebel Kate Grey throws caution to the wind and responds to his seduction. But a spy in her own household steals the military dispatches Tremayne carries, ensuring his disgrace - and implicating Kate in high treason.

Publisher's Summary

When handsome British viscount Major Lord Peter Tremayne commandeers her home, rebel Kate Grey throws caution to the wind and responds to his seduction. But a spy in her own household steals the military dispatches Tremayne carries, ensuring his disgrace - and implicating Kate in high treason. Months later, having narrowly escaped court martial and hanging, Tremayne returns to decadent, British-occupied Philadelphia with a new assignment - to capture the woman he believes betrayed him. Worse, the glamorous fiancée of his own dissolute cousin is none other than Kate Grey, now an undercover spy. And so begins their dangerous dance, between passion and patriotism, between certain death and the promise of a brave new future together.

    "A WINNER!"

    There is nothing like a well written, well narrated romance. Nothing. When I find one I listen to it over and over again. If this audiobook was in paper format (and it probably is), my copy would be dog-eared, with pages falling out from over-use. This well-researched historical romance goes places romances don't usually go, like the American Revolutionary War, and uh other places too. The heroine is a Yankee spy and there's some of the harsh reality of what that entails thrown in, so be advised. The hero starts out as something of a bad guy, but then comes around to become one of my favorite heroes ever. If I say too much more I will be revealing too much of the plot. I'll just add that I have both read and listened to a lot of romances, and this one is on my short list of truly great ones. Author Donna Thorland has a trailer for this book on her website that is worth looking at. She is a Hollywood screenplay writer, so a trailer makes sense. This is her first book but it sure doesn't read like she's a newby, because she isn't. As I said the book is well-narrated.That doesn't mean that this is my favorite narrator, but she's very good. To summarize: great book, great writing, great heroine, and a hero to die for. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up.

    My favorite books are techno-thrillers, followed by paranormals. Photography is my main hobby.

    "Skip this version, reader is not enjoyable, at all"
    Where does The Turncoat rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is an excellent book. I actually read it first and decided to get this version because I loved it that much; I'm sorry I wasted the credit. Listen to the sample, it doesn't get any better.

    As for the book itself, it is easily the most enjoyable historical-fiction I've ever read about the American Revolution, but not for the obvious reasons. The history is there, but only because of the setting. It's mostly a (somewhat steamy) romantic-thriller. There is intrigue, debauchery, sexual tension, explicit sex (not gratuitous, but it works) and much more. I highly recommend the book (just not the audible version.)


    What other book might you compare The Turncoat to and why?

    No comparison to anything out there in this genre. Who knew the American Revolution could be so sexy.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Madeleine Lambert’s performances?

    Never.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Sex, intrigue and debauchery


    Any additional comments?

    This is a debut novel for the writer and can't wait to read the next installment "Terms of Engagement" next March. Hunt down the book trailer on youtube or the author's website. I wish they'd actually make the movie—it was that good.
