The Captured Bride (The Daughters of the Mayflower #3) by Michelle Griep

Mercy Lytton, a scout with keen eyesight raised among the Mohawks, and Elias Dubois, a condemned traitor working both sides of the conflict, must join together to get a shipment of gold safely into British hands.
A brand new series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.

A War-Torn Countryside Is No Place for a Lady
Mercy Lytton is a lady like none other. Raised amongst the Mohawks, she straddles two cultures, yet each are united in one cause. . .to defeat the French. Born with a rare gift of unusually keen eyesight, she is chosen as a scout to accompany a team of men on a dangerous mission. Yet it is not her life that is threatened. It is her heart. Condemned as a traitor, Elias Dubois faces the gallows. At the last minute, he is offered his freedom if he consents to accompany a stolen shipment of French gold to a nearby fort—but he is the one they stole it from in the first place. It turns out that the real thief is the beguiling woman, Mercy Lytton, for she steals his every waking thought. 

Can love survive divided loyalties in a backcountry wilderness?

The Captured Bride is book 3 in the Daughters of the Mayflower series, each one is a standalone with no connecting threads. There are now 12 books in the series, I am slowly making my way through them. They are historical fiction in the US with this book taking place in the late 1700s.

This was an enjoyable read, I enjoyed Mercy's spunk, her strength and determination, as well as her honest heartache and grief.

Enter in Elias, a dangerous man saved from the gallows to go on this secret mission. What follows is an adventure through the wilds of early America. The Captive Bride is a story of trust doing the right thing and finding one selves. Faith plays big part of this story, taking place in a time of conflict and new beginnings.

Michelle Griep is a new to me author, I enjoyed her writing style and could feel her knowledge of the era and appreciate the amount of research that she did which shines through through this story.

This was an audio read for me with the audiobook obtained through Scribd, It comes in just over 10 hours in length and was narrated by Sarah Zimmerman who has read a number of books including some of my favourites by Lynn Austin.
