The Scarlet Pimpernel meets The Patriot in Kerrelyn Sparks'
debut novel, For Love or Country. With an army of wigs and a
wardrobe that favors lavender, Quincy Stanton poses as a
Loyalist fop by day. By night, he wages a secret war against
the British with an impressive array of eighteenth century
spy gadgets. If the truth is discovered, he could hang. Then
along comes Virginia Munro, a lovely fellow patriot who's
becoming entangled in her own brand of spy games...
When spy falls for spy, anything can happen. Both are
reluctant to admit their motives to the other... which, of
course, makes dinner party conversation awkward. When two
spies are stumbling upon each other in the dark, the results
can be hilarious and dangerous. Is Boston big enough for the
two of them? Perhaps if they combine forces...
