Amaryllis

​When it's spy vs. spy, love vs. loyalty, someone is going to get hurt.


Lily Fitzhugh is desperate to get to America when her father is imprisoned as a traitor against the Crown. To gain passage, she accepts a dangerous job: To sneak aboard a ship headed to New York and spy on suspected colonial patriot Griffin Faraday.


Griffin Faraday doesn't have time for a beautiful, tempting stowaway--especially one he can't trust. He has a secret shipment of guns to deliver to General Washington and the Continental Army. Nothing can get in the way. But when the ship's captain orders Lily sent away with pirates, a sure death sentence, Griffin must propose something else entirely: Marriage, the absolute last thing he wants.


Now Lily and Griffin are trapped in the close confines of his cabin, locked in a dangerous cloak and dagger game, two spies hiding the truth while they try not to fall in love. Thrust into a world where deception and silence are the rule and political loyalties can mean prison or death, Lily and Griffin must face their greatest challenge--learning to trust each other.
