A Reader's Opinion: Undercover Rebel by Morgan K. Wyatt



Emily Sewell couldn't remember when she fell in love with her neighbor, Gray Masterson. He unfortunately didn't really notice her as a woman until the eve of his leaving to fight in the Civil War. A magical evening ensued with him asking her to wait for him. News that he's been killed on the battlefield propels her into action. She knows he is alive - she just has to find him. The only thing between her and her true love is miles of swamp land, a major war, and her own doubts. Emily wrestles with Gray's possible death, imprisonment, or that he's unwilling to return to her. 
Can a sheltered Southern Belle navigate the horrors of war to retrieve her fiancé? Emily is willing to try.

A Reader's Opinion

Want to learn how to load a Navy Colt? 
Emily has grit. She's strong and willing to go through whatever it takes for the man she loves--that's a tough woman. I've always enjoyed stories set during the Civil War, but to me, this was really more about Emily's willingness to do what she felt had to be done. You'll meet her sister Eileen, who reminded me a little of Ashton in North and South--mostly I just wanted to muzzle her, but she has a few redeeming qualities. The hero, Gray Masterson, is as a hero should be. You'll find that he's not always perfect, or without flaw, and he even experiences an injury of sorts--this makes him a great hero in my book. Perfect heroes are boring, and the author certainly gave her characters distinct personalities. I laughed at times and at others I cheered on the heroine as she worked to make her way through the war.

This is an easy read, but when you get to the end, chances are you'll be on the lookout for the next book to see how Eileen's life will turn out. All I can say is that there is bound to be some fun.

Content note: This is a sensual book. The love scene is more graphic and drawn-out than I personally like in a book, so I ended up skimming over most of it, but that's just a personal opinion and may not bother other readers.

Eileen Sewell sparks plenty of gossip by spiteful matrons and their horse-faced daughters that she’d find herself alone due to her picky ways. Of course, she didn’t believe them. Then again, she also didn’t expect to be a mail order bride either. It wasn’t easy snagging a husband who hadn’t heard about her willful nature. Eileen finally gave up hope of finding love, and decided to settle for whatever she’d find out west. If that wasn’t lowering enough, she’d just witnessed the first train robbery. Unfortunately, the outlaws saw her too. Enter Marshal Colt Sheppard, who excels at extracting information from reticent witnesses. His crooked smile and broad shoulders won’t charm her. She’d played this game before, only she never had a worthy adversary. Talk about bad timing.

  1. Seems like a good book. War. Is he dead or not? What makes her think he's alive. It's a good hook to keep readers asking questions and searching for answers.

  2. Hi Peaches,
    Thanks for commenting. I love your name.

  3. Wow. What a nice take on romance - a tough heroine. I don't think I'd ever go into a war to find someone who had me wait so long lol. Maybe. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, MK!
