The Return of the King’s Ranger (Hearts at War – book 4)
The war for American freedom is over, and the British have gone back to England. Not knowing what has become of his family since he was forced into the Continental Army nine years earlier, Myles Cunningham wants to go home as well. He returns to the Mohawk Valley with the understanding that he is believed to have been shot for deserting—fiction that might be made real if anyone recognizes him as the son of a Tory and a King’s Ranger.
Everything is wonderful in the growing community along the Mohawk River, except Nora Reid is still alone. With her brother happily settled and both her younger sisters starting families of their own, Nora feels the weight of her twenty-four years. A long walk leads her to the overgrown rubble of the Cunningham homestead where a bearded stranger begins to awaken feelings she’d lost hope of ever experiencing.
With secrets abounding—including whether Myles even cares for her—Nora must determine what she is ready to give up and how far she will go to secure his affections. She begins to break through his defenses, but Myles can’t risk staying. Not if he loves her.
“One of my favorite things about Couch’s writing is her beautifully descriptive prose. She has a gift for transporting the reader back in time. Infused with historical details, The Return of the King’s Ranger has settings so real you can not only see the Reid farm but smell the musty hay and hear the horses hooves clop on the dusty roads.” ~Kelly Goshorn
“I thoroughly enjoyed this novel set at the end of the Revolutionary War. Couch brings out the passion and love between Nora and Myles–who rides into the valley disguised as Matthew Crawford. Will Nora still love this wounded man with the big heart when she finds out he fought for Britain? Lots of action and emotion in this story. I kept turning the pages to see forgiveness in action. With some sacrifice, Nora and Myles receive their happily-ever-after.” ~Amazon reviewer
The Tory’s Daughter (Hearts at War – Book 3)
“Once again, Couch crafts a nuanced tale of secrets kept and losses mourned, while pitting the hero and heroine against seemingly insurmountable odds. Readers will root for these courageous and headstrong characters to claim their happily ever after.” ~Heidi McCahan, author of Unraveled and Covering Home
The Tory’s Daughter is another winner from historical romance writer, Angela K. Couch. I loved Hannah Cunningham with all her spark and spunk. And brooding Joseph Garnet…who wouldn’t fall in love with this hurting hero, struggling to love again? The tension and attraction between the two characters is tangible and undeniable, except perhaps to Joseph and Hannah themselves. The Tory’s Daughter had me anxiously turning the pages to discover what trouble Hannah would once again be responsible for, eager to find out whether Joseph and Hannah would finally put their pasts behind them, and unsure whether they’d ever be on the same page long enough to realize how crazy they are about each other. Superb writing from an amazing story teller. Definitely one not to be missed.

The author has a unique way of drawing you from the present into the past with vivid settings and three dimensional characters. I found The Tory’s Daughter an inspirational, historical gem. A winning combination between action and romance, with a promise of hope even in the midst of a distress.
