The Tennessee Belle who became a spy: Love Me Forever Day 15
Every once in a while, a secondary heroine in a story demands to be heard.
Meet Miss Pauletta Sue Buckingham, a Tennessee belle and the heroine’s rival for the hand of the handsome major in LOVE ME FOREVER, my Civil War Time Travel. What’s my poor heroine to do when this Southern lady gets it into her mind to marry the major?
But no one knows the reason behind her scheme…her broken heart. When her beloved Colton is killed, Pauletta Sue will stop at nothing to avenge his death:
In the morning, he left. Then she waited and waited.
No word came.
No silver coin returned to her.
Then news of his whereabouts arrived by special messenger.
Captain Colton Trent was captured, trying to save a man in his regiment from hanging. Two days later, he was killed trying to escape from a Federal prison.
He was a spy, they said. No trial, no evidence against him but the captured Yank overcoat he wore and the stuttered words of accusation from a frightened Secesh aiming to save his own hide.
Pauletta Sue knew the truth. It lay in her heart.
Colton knew the danger he faced going in alone, trying to save a Ranger’s life. But that wouldn’t stop him. It was so like him, following his credo of honesty, commitment, and duty. What else did she expect from a man who fought bravely in the surprise attack on Grant’s army at Shiloh? Then attacked a Union supply train belonging to General Grant?
Colton was willing to die for what he believed in.
I, too, am not afraid to die, my darling.
I will do anything to help the South win the war.
Anything. Even sell my soul.
