Ring of Secrets by Roseanna M. White

Winter Reeves moves among New York's elite, most of whom are British Loyalists, posing a brainless, harmless beauty. Her true self is a daring, intelligent, young woman with dangerous Patriot ties. Her budding romance with Colonel Fairchild of the British forces allows her to covertly uncover information and pass it to her contact. Bennet Lane comes to New York as a future heir to a wealthy British estate who is in need of a wife. His true mission is to find the Patriot spy hidden among the aristocrats. When Bennet and Winter engage, he sees the intelligence that lies below the facade of innocence. Intrigued, he finds in Winter a captivating mystery. As feelings deepen between Bennet and Winter, both become more committed than ever to their hidden causes. Is there any hope for a future of love? Or will circumstances and loyalties keep them forever apart?

Ring of Secrets by Roseanna M. White is the first book in the Culper Ring Series and I am already looking forward to reading book two, Whispers from the Shadows. I absolutely loved the author's use of language in the beginning of the book. Even though I felt the writing style became more plain as the book progressed – an unfortunate occurrence, but certainly not a reason to discard the book – there is no doubt that Ms. White can write. The author's use of wit, not only in Winter's conversations, but also in the narrative was refreshing. The authentic characters, blossoming romances, and intriguing narrative created such a captivating story that I was hooked from the first chapter to the last.

The publisher was kind enough to provide me with some historical information that the book was based on and a devotional based on the underlying message of the book, both written by Roseanna M. White. Also, you can click here to read an excerpt from Ring of Secrets by Roseanna M. White.
