Miss Sinclair's Secret by Amylynn Bright

Miss Sinclair travels to America to find her father with the help of an American sea captain who doesn't believe a word she's saying

Miss sinclair's secret

Anna Sinclair is an English lady who refuses to settle—not if all her friends have love matches. When she receives notification that her father, General Sinclair, is missing and presumed dead in America shortly after the War of 1812, she knows she has nothing to lose by going to find him. In an untamed country, she’ll need to navigate the Mississippi River, miles of wilderness, earthquakes, Indians, and one absurdly attractive American sea captain.

Nathaniel Johnson is an American patriot whose only goal is to return to the country he loves with his recently located brother, a sailor impressed by the British. The money offered to escort a young English woman to the United States is too much to pass up when he’s desperately trying to save his family’s shipping empire. The beautiful lady spins a ridiculous tale about looking for her father, but Nate has powerful reasons to believe she’s a spy for the Crown. He’ll help her on her quest, at least until he can prove her villainous intent.

Will Anna’s secret destroy his country and be his undoing?

Sample text:

Anna read the missive from the war office again.

We regret to inform you that your father, General Sinclair, has been listed as missing and presumed dead while performing duties in the Mississippi Valley of the United States of America. He played a gallant part in furthering the Crown’s interests on the North American Continent.

He was missing, not dead. An important designation to be sure.

She had been expecting to receive a letter such as this from the war office since she was twelve-years-old. The only real variable was where her father would die, which campaign, which battle, which enemy.

Mr. Grayson cleared his throat. “My humblest apologies, Miss Sinclair.”

She nodded and returned the missive to its envelope then slid them into her pocket.

“Oh, my dear.” Mrs. Bartley wrung her hands. “This must come as quite a shock to you. I insisted on coming with Mr. Grayson when I learned from my sister what had happened.” Having been Anna’s mother’s dearest friend, it was expected the older woman would feel some obligation to Anna as her compatriot’s only child.

Anna nodded again, her mind awhirl with the news. There would be her own letters to write, arrangements to be made. Perhaps no arrangements since her father’s body had not been found. What did one do when this happened? If her father had allowed her to stay with the regiment after her mother had died, perhaps she’d know the protocol when there was no body. Instead, he’d sent her away to live with his childhood friend’s family these last twelve years, and now she didn’t know what to do. One couldn’t bury one’s father if it was possible he was still alive.
