About the Author:
Although published in various genres of romance, both in print and electronic format, Robin Maderich’s first novel was historical, released by Warner Books (before the big merger with Time) in 1989. Faith and Honor hs since been reprinted and the second in the trilogy released. Most recently Robin is enjoying an association with New Concepts Publishing and had a brief but satisfying association with Inara Press. She has also illustrated a children’s e-book which was released last year.
The rural village in Pennsylvania where Robin resides with her husband and multiple pets has provided much of her recent inspiration. The fact her three sons are all grown has allowed her more time to pursue writing. As one might expect, Robin’s feelings regarding that circumstance are mixed.
Robin’s love of history, research, the intricacies of detail and stretching her imagination have aided her immensely through the ever-expanding process of learning her craft.

About the Book:
Rescued from the harrassment of British officers in Colonial Boston by handsome, secretive Fletcher Irons, Faith Ashley’s slumbering passions are ignited, until the discovery that Fletcher himself is an officer of the army she has come to despise, a man who is the enemy. Yet with persistence, Fletcher wins the fiery Faith’s love. When the colonies erupt in Revolution, Faith refuses to choose between her loyalty to the cause and her love for the man who is far more than the color of his uniform. Will her honor be her undoing?
I haven’t read a book like this in quite awhile, so I was thrilled to have the chance as part of Robin’s virtual book tour. Faith Ashley has returned home to Boston, even though her father has reprimanded her and told her she should be staying with her new family. She feels drawn to the home that she shared with her late husband. Boston is as busy as ever, and after having a slight run in with a British officer she meets Fletcher Irons.
Even though they had just met she feels feelings that she hasn’t felt since William. She is unlike most women of her era, and can be rebellious by nature. But even though she is rebellious, when she finds out that Fletcher is a British Officer she isn’t sure if her heart can win over her loyalty to her country.
She is not alone in her feelings. Fletcher is drawn to Faith on their first encounter and has a hard time getting her out of his head. Even though Faith is resistent to his advances, he is determined to get her to see beyond the uniform to the man that is inside of it. As much as they fight their feelings, love is blossoming when things get heated between the States and England. Can love really conquer all, or will their loyalty to their countries destroy a romance that is only seen once in a lifetime?
I really LOVED this book! I have not read anything that was set during the Revolution but it is obvious that this writer has done her homework. It was easy to picture yourself standing there among the characters, each drips with such realism. I can’t wait to read the other 2 books in this trilogy! Great job:)
