Forced to impersonate a boy in order to flee the devastation of the Civil War, proud Southern orphan Alaina MacGaren finds herself in the arms of Union soldier Cole Latimer, who finds his loyalties tested

Blackwell North Amer
The great Civil War has ripped America asunder. In a baptism of fire, a nation comes of age. And Alaina MacGaren - a proud young Southerner orphaned in the terrible conflict - is forced to don the clothing of a young boy and flee the devastation of her homeland. But the only true sanctuary that remains for the spirited, bewitching belle is in the arms of an enemy.
Cole Latimer has served the Union faithfully throughout the lone dark years of battle. But in the rough and rugged port of New Orleans, the loyalties of the dashing Yankee surgeon are to be tested as never before. For a tender heart compels him to offer protection to a ragged, innocent "lad" in need - a heart unaware that the rags conceal a sensuous miss hunted as a Rebel spy.
The brazen masquerade will not fool Cole for long, however. And as duty and desire war within him, Cole finds himself captivated by the strength, courage, and breathtaking beauty of this woman whom it would be treasonous to love.
