When fate throws a Confederate soldier and a Yankee heiress together, they’ll uncover a fierce love worth fighting for…even if it means crossing enemy lines.

From the award-winning, bestselling author of The Winds of Fate comes a novel about a love that crosses the boundaries of civil war. 

When Confederate General John Daniel Rourke is severely wounded at the Battle of the Wilderness, he’s captured and sent to a prison camp. On his way there, Union soldiers mistake him for dead and toss him from the train into the New York countryside, where he lands at the feet of Catherine Fitzgerald, a schoolmistress. 

Rourke wakes to find the mysterious and strong-spirited beauty nursing him back to health. He’s intrigued but unaware of her true identity as the heiress to the Union’s ammunitions manufacturer, and their fiery battle of wits and wills commences. 

Yet when outside forces begin to envelop them in a larger conspiracy, their own war begins. Torn between family loyalties and manipulated by a powerful leader from the Irish underworld, Catherine and Rourke will have to fight on both sides of the secession line to win the most significant battle of all: the fight for their love. 

Filled with detailed battle scenes and breathtaking twists, Surrender the Wind has won “the Marlene” and “the Catherine” Romance Writer’s Awards.


  • Surrender the Wind ONE HUNDRED STARS REVIEW!!!!

    By ElizabethRochester
    Surrender the Wind is definitely one of my all-time favorites with all the sweetness, warmth, and tenderness of two characters from disparate backgrounds finding love in the midst of the Civil War. The best part is the incredible chemistry between Catherine and Rebel General John Rourke. I won’t give away how they meet but it was definitely unusual and attention-grabbing. Keep your tissues handy. And why does Surrender the Wind hold so much appeal? It’s that every woman longs for a man who loves her as deeply as General Rourke. So nice to get back to a really good love story.
