Monday Moments features The Rebel Wife by Donna Dalton

Monday Moments welcomes fellow Wild Rose Press author - Donna Dalton. 

Donna has many titles with The Wild Rose Press. Just released in digital form, from the American Rose line, is THE REBEL WIFE. It looks like a great read, especially so if you're a fan of Civil War romance! Copies are available now.

When war correspondent Jackson Porter lies to a Union patrol to save a red-headed rebel, he gets something he never expected...a wife. But with her knowledge of corruption at the federal prisons, Louisa is his best chance to deliver the topnotch article his newspaper editor expects. The one thing Jackson didn't count on was a burning desire for his pretend spouse.

Louisa Carleton needs a miracle…even if that miracle comes in the shape of an arrogant, highfalutin Yankee. With her brother’s imminent death in prison heavy on her mind, she has no option but to join forces with the enemy.  Can she save her brother from a vindictive prison commander while still protecting her heart, or will Jackson stir dark memories she wants to forget?


Hardness replaced the sadness on her face. “With the soldiers looking for me, I need another way to get to Point Lookout.”
“You have something in mind?”
“Sure do.”
“And, pray tell, what is that?”
Her almond-shaped eyes gleamed like a cat with a fresh kill. “Apparently we’re married, so I’ll travel with you, Mr. Porter.”
