Set during the War of 1812, My Love, My Enemy tells the story of bold and sassy American, Page Bradley who, after stealing away with her family’s sloop, meets and handsome stranger – who turns out to be an Englishman, Lord Hazard.
Jan Cox Speas takes them, and her reader, on a wonderful journey full of treachery and danger – France, Spain and beyond – all while mixing in real life historical figures the pair come across. While the book is short – a mere 272 pages – it is long on lovely reading goodness. I do have to say though, that I dislike the cover quite a lot. I didn’t give the book the credit it deserved until I actually cracked it open. It looks like a bodice ripper but is anything but.
Many thanks to Sourcebooks for sending me this book for review and kudos to them for bringing another hard to find book back to life for readers to enjoy.
