Lady Elizabeth “Liberty” Lawson has nearly everything a lady of her position could want.  Daughter of the British lieutenant governor of the Virginia Colony and a darling of the society in a rugged Land, she is anticipating an advantageous marriage. That her betrothed is a rake and love is lacking is of little consequence – or so she tells herself.

Though her own life seems in order, colonial Williamsburg is a powder keg on the verge of exploding, and her fiance’s cousin Noble Rynalt carries the flame of revolution in his heart.  Those with connections in the British nobility are suspected as spies, and Liberty soon finds herself left with a terrible choice.  Will she stay true to her English roots?  Or side with Noble and the radical revolutionaries?
