About the book: 
England 1650: Civil War has given way to an uneasy peace in the year since Parliament executed King Charles I. Royalist officer James Hart refuses to accept the tyranny of the new government, and to raise funds for the restoration of the king’s son, he takes to the road as a highwayman. Elizabeth Seton has long been shunned for being a traitor’s daughter. In the midst of the new order, she risks her life by sheltering fugitives from Parliament in a garrison town. But her attempts to rebuild her life are threatened, first by her own sense of injustice, then by falling in love with the dashing Hart. The lovers’ loyalty is tested through war, defeat and separation. James must fight his way back to the woman he loves, while Elizabeth will do anything to save him, even if it means sacrificing herself. Traitor’s Knot is a sweeping tale of love and conflicted loyalties set against the turmoil of the English Civil War.

“A hugely satisfying read that will appeal to historical fiction fans who demand authenticity, and who enjoy a combination of suspense, action, and a very believable love story.” - Elizabeth St. John, author of The Lady of the Tower“A thrilling historical adventure expertly told.” - Carol McGrath, author of The Handfasted Wife

What did I think of this book: 
Book set in this time period tend to grab my interest. I am a fan of the pre-1900 time period and read as much set in that time and about it as I can. This is the first book I have read by this author and I was not disappointed in it. I enjoyed all the historical details she included in her story. I have not actually read much about the English Civil War so I learned a bit as reading this and now want more. It was fun to watch as Elizabeth and James's relationship grew throughout the book. Even though James did some questionable things I found myself liking him more and more as the book went along. I was happy that this story was well written and well told as it made the book move along quite nicely. I will be watching for more books by this author.
