FOR LOVE & LIBERTY:
Introducing a Revolutionary Romance Anthology
By Lena Hart
I’m excited to be kicking off this month’s Multicultural Blog-a-Thon and would like to thank Yolanda Ashton for hosting this blog event!
We all know real love transcends and overcomes all things. That is as true today as it was two hundred years ago. In the spirit of showcasing such unruly love, a group of authors and I produced an anthology of multicultural romance stories titled, FOR LOVE & LIBERTY: Untold Love Stories of the American Revolution.
In BE NOT AFRAID by Alyssa Cole, a black Patriot captured by the British falls in love with a headstrong runaway determined to leave the colonies…
while a wounded British soldier discovers the healing power of love in the arms of a gentle native woman in A SWEET SURRENDER by Lena Hart…
yet in REBELS AT HEART by Kate McMurray, two men must make hard choices if they are to stay together when war arrives on the shores of their home in New York City…
at last, in HOME by Stacey Agdern, a young Jewish couple must decide what can hold them together before war and geography tear them apart.
These four tales are all set during the Revolutionary War, which marks a time when men were in search of, and believed in, a radical notion that all men were due to certain “inalienable” rights—rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. But happiness is not only a right, it’s an innate desire in all of us. Love can bring us that. It is an ancient concept that is timeless and everlasting. It has the power to not only break through color and cultural lines, but also show us that when it comes to matters of the heart, there are no such things as barriers.♥
