Publisher's Summary

Jocelyn Wright would prefer to be outside, with her twin brother, instead of in drawing rooms and social events. She has had to hide her true self, and pretend to be the young lady everyone expects. But, as Jonas gets ready to attend Philadelphia College, the colonies’ rebellion against the crown heats up, and her family is forced to quarter British soldiers. That's when Bennet Hart comes into the picture, and changes come much too fast, for even her.

Great story!

I loved listening to this story and immediately went to the next book after this one. I loved both of them! I wondered if I would honestly right off because of the way the narrator sounded, but soon into it realized that it was perfect that way! It was a great historical romance! I can't wait to see if another comes out! Loved it! Definitely give it and listen and go ahead and get the next one!

Sweet story

I really enjoyed this sweet story. It was clean, and kept me interested. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the stories in the series!

I was given a copy of this audible book in exchange for an honest review.

Enjoyable

I enjoyed the story much more than I thought I would when I started listening. In the time period of the Revolutionary War some individuals/families decide that they want to support the "rebels" and do so in secrecy of course.

A set of twins who become spies and almost are caught except someone else steps in. An Officer who is determined to get the girl he wants no matter the cost.

The author does a good job of ups and downs to keep the listener interested and rooting for the love they can see blossoming. I must say, I loved the ending!

The narrator did a good job on this. A little whiny in one male characters voice but I could almost see that character sounding like that.

I received a free copy of this audiobook and I am voluntarily leaving this review.

Another well written book by Janice Cole Hopkins. Love how she leaves a lot of details up to the readers imagination.

Intriguing and Adventurous

Jocelyn is rather a tomboy by today's standards, but her mother is determined to make her a proper lady. That does not make her happy! Bennet, her twin brother's friend, is introduced to her and begins to bring many changes to her life. To add to the adventure, the story takes place during the American Revolution. When her twin, Jonas, reveals to her his Patriot point of view as his own, she is frightened for his safety. But she, too, begins to sympathize with the Patriots. Romance, intrigue and adventure follow and Jocelyn and Bennet land in the middle of it all. I really enjoy Ms. Wright's books and this one did not disappoint.

The narration made for a pleasant listen. Well done.

I requested this audio book from the author and am voluntarily leaving this review.

Christian Historical Romance

Set in the unrestful time before American Independence, a beautiful love story unfolds.  While their relationship has to be a secret, their feelings develop over time and despite their situations!

I loved the story!  The narration was good!  His best character voice was the evil and spiteful British soldier.

A great start to what looks like a great series!

Josie and her twin brother are young adults still living at home during the revolution. Unfortunately for Josie her mother is a social climber and insist on making an advantageous marriage for her into her chagrin it’s to the reprehensible lieutenant who is staying in their home during the war. Thankfully the other British soldiers staying with them looked out for Josie and let her know important things to avoid the lieutenant Josie is independent and private and only shows the smart intelligent, capable woman that she is to her twin brother her parents and the rest of the world wouldn’t understand, but when she meets her brothers good friend mr. Bennet heart, she thinks she may have found a kindred spirit. At first though she is leery but the more she sees him the more she likes him. The only problem she has is what it this loyalist find out her in Jonas or patriots? Not to mention the lieutenant is dead set on her being his wife and going to England win the war is over. This book was so good I absolutely love Janice say Hopkins books and cannot get enough. I can’t wait until book 2 is on audio. As far as the narrator goes I think his narration was great but when he did the different text for the characters it seemed a bit Stilton, but not so much that it made it on enjoyable. I have heard some bad narrators and I wouldn’t put him in that category and would listen to a book narrated by him again I just thought it could’ve been a little bit better. Having said all that I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for more books from the idioms and clichés theories. Please forgive any grammatical or punctuation errors as I am blind and dictate my review.
