Description


From the award-winning author of the instant New York Times and USA Today bestseller, When No One Is Watching… The Civil War has turned neighbor against neighbor—but for one scientist spy and her philosopher soldier, the battle could bind them together as love war, and racial justice collide in Alyssa Cole’s  buzzworthy, sensual, and revelatory Civil War novel.Named a Best of the Year by Entertainment Weekly * Bookpage * Kirkus * Vulture * Publishers Weekly * Booklist

For all of the War Between the States, Marlie Lynch has helped the cause in peace: with coded letters about anti-Rebel uprisings in her Carolina woods, tisanes and poultices for Union prisoners, and silent aid to fleeing slave and Freeman alike. Her formerly enslaved mother’s traditions and the name of a white father she never knew have protected her—until the vicious Confederate Home Guard claims Marlie’s home for their new base of operations in the guerilla war against Southern resistors of the Rebel cause. Unbeknowst to those under her roof, escaped prisoner Ewan McCall is sheltering in her laboratory. Seemingly a quiet philosopher, Ewan has his own history with the cruel captain of the Home Guard, and a thoughtful but unbending strength Marlie finds irresistible. When the revelation of a stunning family secret places Marlie’s freedom on the line, she and Ewan have to run for their lives into the hostile Carolina night. Following the path of the Underground Railroad, they find themselves caught up in a vicious battle that could dash their hopes of love—and freedom—before they ever cross state lines.When the revelation of a stunning family secret places Marlie’s freedom on the line,  she and Ewan have to run for their lives into the hostile Carolina night.

Praise For…


Exceptional Praise for The Loyal League Series

“Cole does the seemingly impossible, using the Civil War as a backdrop for a realistic, gripping interracial romance that interrogates slavery, systemic racism, and more, while still remaining utterly swoon-worthy.” Entertainment Weekly, Top 10 Romances of 2017 on An Extraordinary Union

“Cole's Civil War-set romance boasts one of the most delightfully, unapologetically powerful heroines in recent memory. Elle Burns quotes The Art of War in between dodging Confederate bullets, and by the end of An Extraordinary Union, readers are just as smitten with her as her adoring love interest is.” BookPage, Top Pick, 10 Best Romance Novels of 2017 on An Extraordinary Union

“Cole’s characters are complex and passionate. Readers will share the couple’s rage and admire their determination” Library Journal, Editor’s Fall Picks for A Hope Divided
 
“Fans of Beverly Jenkins will be thrilled with Cole’s fearless, steamy, and moving multicultural take on forbidden love in a time of slavery and war.” Booklist STARRED REVIEW for An Extraordinary Union

“Cole’s sparkling gem of a romance portrays love at its most practical and sublime.” Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW, BEST BOOKS OF 2017 on An Extraordinary Union
 
“[Alyssa Cole’s] prose is flawless. Her historical research is absorbing, and her characters are achingly human. This book is fantastic. As the war closes in around them, the line blurs between who is the rescuer and who is the rescued.” Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW for A Hope Divided
 
Successfully navigating the challenges of writing an interracial romance set during the Civil War is difficult enough to do once, but to pull it off twice is truly impressive. And yet Cole has managed to do just that with her second book in the series.” —Shondaland.com on A Hope Divide
