    As Will and Angel begin to fall in love, both knows that her lifestyle would never enable them to marry. Added to their differences is the fact that Will plans to lead an expedition to destroy her people, who he believes are the pirates that destroyed his family business and led to his father's suicide. Angel and Will make love in spite of their differences, but she feels betrayed when he leads the attack against the Brethren. Though fully in love, this pair seems destined to never become a permanent duet.

    Winner of an RT Career Achievement Award for American Historical Romance, Judith French shows why she is one of the most beloved sub-genre writers of the last decade. FALCON'S ANGEL is an exciting historical romance that hooks the audience through strong characters and vivid descriptions of early nineteenth century Charleston and the Outer Banks. Though Angel's inability to realize that the Brethren are pirates seems stretched, the lead couple remain an engaging pair who fascinate fans as the core of Ms. French's latest winning Americana tale.
