Beth White in her new book, “The Creole Princess book coverThe Creole Princess” Book Two in the Gulf Coast Chronicles  series published by Revell introduces us to Lyse Lanier.

From the Back Cover:   Torn between loyalties to family and flag, one young woman is about to discover that her most important allegiance is to her heart.

It is 1776, and all along the eastern seaboard the American struggle for independence rages. But in the British-held southern port of Mobile, Alabama, the conflict brewing is much quieter–though no less deadly.

Lyse Lanier may be largely French in heritage, but she spends most of her time in the company of the ebullient daughter of the British commander of Mobile. When a charming young Spanish merchant docks in town, Lyse is immediately struck by his easy wit and flair for the dramatic. But is he truly who he makes himself out to be? Spies abound, and Spain has yet to choose a side in the American conflict. Is Lyse simply an easy mark for Rafael Gonzalez to exploit? Or are his overtures of love as genuine as Spanish gold?

With spectacular detail that brings the cultural gumbo of the Colonial Gulf Coast alive, Beth White invites you to step into a world of intrigue and espionage from a little-known slice of the American Revolutionary War.

To the best of my knowledge there are not too many stories that take place on The Gulf Coast during The Revolutionary War. “The Creole Princess” does and, I think, it is a true winner. A Spanish Merchant who may be a spy (I am not going to tell you). The British control Mobile and the situation there is tense. Rafael is in love with Lyse but has to hide it and Lyse is unsure about him. Intrigue, mystery, danger, and double crosses, are all ingredients in this page turning adventure. Beth White has written a very exciting story full of interesting characters that we come to know and love as we read through the book.  Ms. White does a great job of making us feel that we are there and living the events rather than just reading about them.  I enjoyed this book and am really looking forward to the next book in this exciting series.
