An assassination plot that could end the Civil War, and a hidden enemy that could destroy a secret league of unsung heroes . . . Daniel Cumberland, born free in Massachusetts, studied law with dreams of helping his people-dreams that died the night he was kidnapped and sold into slavery. Daniel is rescued, but he's a changed man. When he's offered entry into the Loyal League, the covert organization of Black spies who helped free him, he seizes the opportunity for vengeance against the Confederacy and those who support it. When the Union Army occupies the Florida home of Cuban Janeta Sanchez, daughter of an enslaved woman and the plantation owner who married her, her family's wealth does not protect her father from being imprisoned. Under duress and blaming herself for the arrest, Janeta agrees to infiltrate a group called the Loyal League as a double agent-and finds a cause truly worth the sacrifice. Daniel is aggravated by the headstrong and much too observant new detective he's paired with, and Janeta is intrigued by the broken but honorable man she is tasked with betraying. As they embark on a mission to intercept Jefferson Davis and thwart European meddling, their dual hidden agendas are threatened by the ghosts of their pasts and a growing affection that could strengthen both the Union and their souls-or lead to their downfall.

Daniel Cumberland was born free in the north, but was deceived, captured and sold into slavery. Though a traumatized and broken man, after regaining his freedom he joins the Loyal League, a spy organization whose members infiltrate and report on happenings in the south during the time of the Civil War. He is partnered with Janeta, a young woman of Cuban origin whose mother had been enslaved, and who is hiding her own secrets. This is the third volume in Cole's Loyal League series, but for me it didn't quite measure up to the first two (An Extraordinary Union being my favorite). It is always a treat to read about this time period, especially from voices not traditionally represented in the romance genre, and Cole's writing is quite lovely.

The Loyal League series is an impressive accomplishment to me, because I think it’s incredibly difficult to write a romance series set during the Civil War and not be either hopelessly depressing or wildly, offensively inaccurate. Alyssa Cole has managed to walk that thin line of realistic-but-hopeful extremely well, and while I don’t think this was my favorite of the series’ installments, I really do find these books to be an impressive accomplishment.
