Publisher's Summary

Susanna LeGrande lost her fiance, her brother, and her beloved home to the Union Army. But her grief only strengthened her resolve to spy for the Confederacy. The once-pampered Southern belle charmed her way through Washington society, falling brazenly into the arms of Rear Admiral Mitchell B. Longley, a commanding Union sailor. She seduced, used, and loved the powerful man. In the heat of ecstasy, Susanna forgot Mitch was her enemy; she surrendered her body and her heart. But her ruthless betrayal in the name of the South would cost Mitch everything: his command, his men, and very nearly his life. She left a shattered, soulless man in her wake. And now Susanna's dearest love, her dearest enemy, will show her that the sweet kiss of vengeance is a game he, too, can play.

Could have been good but wasn't

This book could have been so good. It had so many elements of a great story: love, war, revenge, betrayal, loss, great historical backdrop. But the whole thing was flat.

The characters were two dimensional, reminding me of cardboard dolls that wear clothes with tiny paper tabs. Clay-mation would have been a step up.

The female protagonist's efforts at being a spy were pitiful - she would have been more subtle if she had a neon sign on her forehead.

The two main characters were a matched set, though: brainless folks making absurd decisions and having a lot of monotonous sex!!

On the other hand, the narrator was pretty good.

Good Story

Dearest Enemy was a good read. It reminded me of North and South - which I loved. Gabra Zackman is a good narrarator and pulled me into this story with her story telling. The premise was excellent and showed the ups and downs of the war from the standpoint of 2 lovers. The romance was excellent and the drama was on point. Good Story. I would recommend.
