Nicholas Grey returns to Boston to discover his father has died at the hands of the British after receiving a warning from a mysterious woman spy known as “Lady Midnight.” Nicholas vows to avenge his father’s death, but first he must find the lady. No one would suspect the Tory tavern owner’s daughter, Faith Kingston, of treason, but she is a fierce believer in freedom and the work of the Sons of Liberty. She has a friend in Nicholas’ father, but the dashing, adventurer son poses a threat to her. Their personal missions collide, compelling them to join forces, and their growing desire is more dangerous then the coming war. (AVON, Nov., 380 pp., $7.99)
