The patriots who fought for our liberty here in America during the 1700s were the inspiration for The Rebels of Cordovia. In this story, you get a glimpse of what another country had to fight for. The freedom of speech, freedom of equality, and the freedom to worship as we please!
Susan Ortlieb from Suko’s Notebook wrote: “Once I started reading The Rebels of Cordovia, I greatly looked forward to my time with this book, because the author is a truly terrific storyteller. She brings the characters to life through their mannerisms and conversations with each other. Linda Weaver Clarke writes with passion and grace, and the love story in this book is simply wonderful. In fact, this aspect of the story was the strongest draw for me. (Is it just me, or are love stories set in the past more romantic than those set in the present day?) I thought that Robin and Daniel sounded perfect for each other, and I enjoyed the steady development of their relationship. Suitable for young adults and adults, this charming book was a pleasure to read, and I relished it.”
The time period is set in the late 1700s. In the small country of Cordovia, there are two major groups of rebels fighting for the rights of the people, but its Robin’s Rebels who get the attention of the king. Daniel, a good-looking rogue, is the leader of the Freemen. Robin Marie, a young woman, is the leader of Robin’s Rebels. Each leader is an expert archer and swordsman.
In this battle for freedom, a tender love story begins to blossom. Daniel doesn’t realize that the sweet feminine woman he has met and is falling for happens to be the leader of Robin’s Rebels. Realizing the importance of uniting all the rebel groups, Daniel tries to recruit Robin’s Rebels but they refuse. Now he has to find a way to convince them. When he finds out the leader is actually a woman, what will his reaction be? With bits of adventure and delectable kisses, this tale will entertain anyone who enjoys a sweet romance.
