Faith and Honor by Robin Maderich

One of the reviews on the back of Faith and Honor says, "...the right mix: history, romance, sex..." That pretty much perfectly describes the book for me. This book was one of those that I just couldn't put down from the minute I picked it up. The story is very Romeo and Julietesque, which is a story line that always sucks me in. But rather than being lovers from separate families, they are lovers on different sides of the Revolutionary War.

Faith Ashley and Fletcher Irons are perfect for each other. Other than the fact that Faith is helping the colonials smuggle firearms out of Boston and Fletcher is trying to catch the people doing the smuggling. But they are destined for each other and of course fall easily in love quickly after meeting. The book is about trying to maintain their relationship in the midst of a battle greater than either of them.

Maderich develops her characters wonderfully, and you feel for the couple as they try to prove that love can beat all odds. They quickly find that it can't. I'm not sure how historically correct (only because I don't know a whole lot about it) the book is about the Revolutionary War and the comings and goings of Boston at the time, but I felt like I was in a different time than my own while reading this novel. The story is somehow modern even though it's set in a different era, and I loved almost every minute of reading it. I recommend it to anyone that enjoys a good Romeo and Juliet story and/or historical romance novel.
