Summary
"As the Civil War rages between the states, a courageous pair of spies plunge fearlessly into a maelstrom of ignorance, deceit, and danger, combining their unique skills to alter the course of history and break the chains of the past... Elle Burns is a former slave with a passion for justice and an eidetic memory. Trading in her life of freedom in Massachusetts, she returns to the indignity of slavery in the South--to spy for the Union Army. Malcolm McCall is a detective for Pinkerton's Secret Service. Subterfuge is his calling, but he's facing his deadliest mission yet--risking his life to infiltrate a Rebel enclave in Virginia. Two undercover agents who share a common cause--and an undeniable attraction--Malcolm and Elle join forces when they discover a plot that could turn the tide of the war in the Confederacy's favor. Caught in a tightening web of wartime intrigue, and fighting a fiery and forbidden love, Malcolm and Elle must make their boldest move to preserve the Union at any cost--even if it means losing each other..."-- Page [4] of cover

Summary
Born into slavery, Elle Burns is now a free woman and a spy for the pro-Union Loyalty League. While on assignment in Richmond, Virginia, she encounters another undercover operative: white Pinkerton Detective Malcolm McCall. Their attraction is instantaneous (and mutual), but there are so many reasons they can't be together. Set during the American Civil War, this compelling story of forbidden love and espionage boasts authentic characters and well-researched historical detail that should please fans of Beverly Jenkins' novels. -- Description by Gillian Speace
