My April release is now available. Isn't this a great cover? This is the third book in my Revolutionary War series, which follows the Moberly siblings, two English brothers and their sister who find themselves inconveniently falling in love with Americans during a time when their two countries are at war. Check my Books page for information about the first two stories: Love Thine Enemy and The Captain's Lady. This new book, At the Captain's Command, takes readers on an exciting adventure on land and sea.

At the Captain's Command (Harlequin’s Love Inspired Historical) was awarded a 4-star RT rating. In this story, a heroic British naval captain, son of an influential earl, dares to fall in love with a provincial American girl. Then he discovers her family's devastating secret.

Duty and career—Captain Thomas Moberly of His Majesty's Navy prizes them above all. So why is he tempted to relinquish both for Dinah Templeton? Though Dinah seems sweet and charming, the difference in station between an East Florida belle and the son of an earl is too marked to ignore. And all other obstacles pale with the discovery that Dinah's brother James is not what he seems….A war is brewing on the colonies' horizon, and James has chosen his side—in opposition to the country Thomas has sworn to defend. But what of Dinah? Where does her heart truly lie—with her family, or with the man she claims to love?

Congratulations, Louise! At the Captain's Command sounds intriguing. Writing historical novels must require a great deal of research. Good luck with your newest book! Sylvia sa.nash1 (at) charter (dot) net
