I was a Rebel Spy: Love Me Forever Day 19
Ever want to be a Bond Girl?
Wear a sexy bikini…flirt with 007 himself…in the flesh.
Oh, yes…but spying was a different matter during the Civil War. Instead of the bikini, Liberty Jordan, the heroine in my time travel, LOVE ME FOREVER, has to stuff herself into a corset and waddle in a hoop skirt.
And as for the sexy Mr. Bond…well, see for yourself. In Love Me Forever, he’s a handsome Union Army major and Liberty is aching to see him again. First, she has to escape from a Union prison. To do that, she must transform herself into a Southern belle à la Scarlett and join the incomparable Pauletta Sue as a spy…
Then Liberty remembered the major, his brooding dark eyes watching her, his expression conveying a curious amusement. She mulled that over and an unexpected passion to know more about him made her body hum. She’d never have the chance if she didn’t escape from this place. She ached to get close enough to him to drink in his pure masculinity with her eyes. Dream of him holding her in his arms. And in a wild fantasy, get close enough to him to hear the steady beating of his heart when he kissed her.
He’s not for you. He thinks of you as nothing more than an oddity. A female with a brain.
With a reluctant sigh, Liberty gave up her daydream and got back to turning herself into a lady. She fastened the hooks and eyes running up the front of the dress bodice, noting the rows of buttons were merely decorative. A slight dizziness made her lightheaded since the corset was so tight she could barely breathe. Aside from all else, she pooh-poohed the pointy feminine-looking boots and white stockings Bedelia handed her and kept on her comfortable hiking boots.
“Miss Pauletta ain’t gonna like you wearing men’s shoes,” Bedelia said, rolling her eyes.
“They’re my feet, not hers,” Liberty insisted, stepping into the hoop skirt. Six-boned and nearly twelve feet in circumference. With a big ruffle circling the bottom. “Good grief,” she mumbled out loud. “How am I supposed to escape in a hoop skirt?”
A smile crept over Bedelia’s lips. “Miss Pauletta said you’d know how.”
Liberty looked with skepticism at the girl, praying she was right. She was no born flirt, but she saw how Pauletta Sue wound every man around her finger. She doubted there was anyone better.
You look like her. So now act like her.
She wore gray.
He wore blue.
But their love defied the boundaries of war.
