 The Captured Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower #3)
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
 
About the Book:
Mercy Lytton, a scout with keen eyesight raised among the Mohawks, and Elias Dubois, a condemned traitor working both sides of the conflict, must join together to get a shipment of gold safely into British hands.
A brand new series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.

A War-Torn Countryside Is No Place for a Lady
Mercy Lytton is a lady like none other. Raised amongst the Mohawks, she straddles two cultures, yet each are united in one cause. . .to defeat the French. Born with a rare gift of unusually keen eyesight, she is chosen as a scout to accompany a team of men on a dangerous mission. Yet it is not her life that is threatened. It is her heart.  Condemned as a traitor, Elias Dubois faces the gallows. At the last minute, he is offered his freedom if he consents to accompany a stolen shipment of French gold to a nearby fort—but he is the one they stole it from in the first place. It turns out that the real thief is the beguiling woman, Mercy Lytton, for she steals his every waking thought.   Can love survive divided loyalties in a backcountry wilderness?

Join the adventure as the Daughters of the Mayflower series continues with The Captured Bride by Michelle Griep.


My Review:
 Mercy is having to live a double life, in a sense. She has one foot in Mohawk country and the other in British territory helping defeat the French. What a twist on the story when the two lovebirds are actually enemies and don't really know it until it the gold has to be transported.

 The story of Mercy and Elias have literally had me on the edge of my seat. At times I couldn't believe that this story was headed in the direction that it was in and at other times I could feel the love between the two but the frustration of both. It was a captivating story with an unexpected ending that left me reeling.

 A turn of the century story thats actual a mix of several different cultures. War time has become a time of mystery and secrets. There are two caught in the middle and The Captured Bride shares their stories.

 A fantastic read!
