1917 – Washington DC
Threats, betrayal and love . . .
Liesel Bonner never questioned her loyalty to America—until she is forced to either protect or betray the man everyone expects her to marry.
David de Serra is the intriguing and handsome federal agent demanding Liesel’s help in his case against her would-be fiancé.
Set during the turbulence of 1917 as America is swept into the Great War, this is a tale of faith, betrayal and unexpected love.
All Liesel Bonner wants is to be part of the great service army, joining everyday Americans working to support the government and soldiers headed overseas to fight the Germans. But living in a place like Washington, D.C. makes it difficult to find someone willing to hire a German American.
All David de Serra wants is to stop German espionage—and to do so fairly, without targeting innocent German Americans.
David believes Liesel’s choice is easy: her country’s needs are more important than the loyalty she holds for a man she never really knew. When the lines blur between what both of them want, their lives are altered forever.
