Surrender the Night by M.L. Tyndall

Amid the war of 1812, Baltimore farm girl Rose McGuire is rescued by the least likely of heroes--British Naval Lieutenant Alexander Reed. How will she keep this enemy officer hidden from her family and friends? Alex didn't plan on getting shot while rescuing a maiden in distress. Now at her mercy, he wonders if Rose will turn him over to the Americans or if his own troops will find him and charge him with desertion. As their attraction grows, a British invasion of Washington begins. What role will these young lovers play to change the course of history forever?
What a great book. Love Historical romance and this one doesn't let you fact it is hard to put down!
This is Rose's and Alex's romance. They had to learn to trust in God and by doing so they found each other. The story takes place when the enemy is on US soil. There are alarms sounding every so often to alert to the coming of the soldiers. I found some little know facts about the War of 1812 that come out in this book.
I was literally laughing out loud about Prinney the Pig...and of course Liverpool the Cow! Loved when she told Alex their names...after the Prince Regent of England, and Lord Liverpool the Prime Minister!!
I Loved Mr Drummond...Rose's Uncle...what a great character he was. Her Aunt Muria kept throwing Mr Snyder at her...and he was very interested in Rose. Enjoyed how everything worked out, and if it had me on edge, and couldn't put the book down.
Highly recommend this great won't be disappointed!!
