Jude Deveraux continues her beloved Montgomery saga in America with this dramatic, passion-filled tale of rebellion and love -- a breathtaking adventure to be savored all over again -- or discovered for the first time!
In colonial New England, the British are hunting a fearless, masked patriot whose daring foils them at every turn. He's known simply as the Raider.
Jessica Taggert, a proud-tempered beauty, thrills to the Raider's scorching midnight embrace, but despises Alexander Montgomery, the drunken town buffoon.
In truth, the cleverly disguised Montgomery lives two lives...and only his triumph over the hated Redcoats will free him, at last, to know the full pleasure of Jessica's love.

Excerpt from The Raider by Jude Deveraux
ALEXANDER Montgomery leaned back in the chair and stretched his long, lean legs across the carpeted floor of the captain's quarters of The Grand Duchess and watched Nicholas Ivanovitch berate one of the servants. Alex had never seen anyone with quite as much arrogance as this Russian.
"I'll have your head if you misplace my buckles a second time," Nick said with his heavy accent and husky voice.
Alex wondered if in Russia grand dukes were still allowed to behead people who displeased them.
"Go now. Out of my sight," Nick said as he waved a lace-encased wrist toward the cowering servant. "You see what I have to bear," he said to Alex as soon as they were alone in the cabin.
"It's a great deal, yes, I can see that," Alex agreed.
Nicholas raised one eyebrow at his friend, then looked back at the charts spread across the table. "We'll be docking about a hundred and fifty miles south of this Warbrooke of yours. Think someone will be willing to take you north?"
"I'll manage," Alex said nonchalantly, putting his hands behind his head and stretching even more, his long body taking up most of the cabin space. Long ago he'd schooled his handsome face to conceal what he was thinking. Nicholas knew some of what his friend was feeling, but Alex didn't allow anyone to see the depth of his concern.
