Publisher's Summary

When handsome British viscount Major Lord Peter Tremayne commandeers her home, rebel Kate Grey throws caution to the wind and responds to his seduction. But a spy in her own household steals the military dispatches Tremayne carries, ensuring his disgrace - and implicating Kate in high treason. Months later, having narrowly escaped court martial and hanging, Tremayne returns to decadent, British-occupied Philadelphia with a new assignment - to capture the woman he believes betrayed him. Worse, the glamorous fiancée of his own dissolute cousin is none other than Kate Grey, now an undercover spy. And so begins their dangerous dance, between passion and patriotism, between certain death and the promise of a brave new future together.

Skip this version, reader is not enjoyable, at all

Where does The Turncoat rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is an excellent book. I actually read it first and decided to get this version because I loved it that much; I'm sorry I wasted the credit. Listen to the sample, it doesn't get any better.

As for the book itself, it is easily the most enjoyable historical-fiction I've ever read about the American Revolution, but not for the obvious reasons. The history is there, but only because of the setting. It's mostly a (somewhat steamy) romantic-thriller. There is intrigue, debauchery, sexual tension, explicit sex (not gratuitous, but it works) and much more. I highly recommend the book (just not the audible version.)


What other book might you compare The Turncoat to and why?

No comparison to anything out there in this genre. Who knew the American Revolution could be so sexy.


Would you be willing to try another one of Madeleine Lambert’s performances?

Never.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Sex, intrigue and debauchery


Any additional comments?

This is a debut novel for the writer and can't wait to read the next installment "Terms of Engagement" next March. Hunt down the book trailer on youtube or the author's website. I wish they'd actually make the movie—it was that good.

Good story, not so good narrator

I hate to give a bad review about anything, but I just have to say that the narration on this book was really pretty bad. It's a shame because the story is actually pretty good because I read along at times using my Kindle with the Whispersync app. And as I was reading I was enjoying it but when I listen I got frustrated with the narration.
