Reviews: 4 Cups give from Coffee Time Romance Reviews
The Quartering Act is a one of a kind novel. Very few books are based in the American Revolution and Ms. Baker captures the spirit perfectly. Katherine and Jeremy’s story is very romantic and well told as they must hide their love while war is raging all around them. The reader benefits from the research put into this book and can feel the fortitude of the patriots as they fight for their country. This novel is a great story of love and bravery and I enjoyed it immensely.

The Long and the Short of It Review - 4 Books
Ms. Baker does a masterful job weaving in the major conflicts around Boston so familiar from our history books. She twists the plot pulling the lovers away for a huge break in time allowing both to move toward other facets of their life. But as the course of true love pendulum swings, the man she marries is lost and her true love has one more chance to make things right. The madness of Katherine’s brother is portrayed perfectly. He is so consumed by hatred of the British that it turns his soul black. While we sympathize with his feelings, the reader will not condone his actions aka the sublime villain.The Quartering Act is an excellent read. I love the opening that gave us the flavor of the struggle against Britain and moved us gently toward the hero/heroine’s first meeting. I liked this much better than slamming them together. Such a broad story must be told with a bit of feeding. I hope that if you are into reading Regencies, you will take heart and pick up this story. I’d like to say it’s a great addition to any library and a new American Empire drama. Many thanks to Ms. Baker for an enjoyable book.
Katherine Heaton, a young patriot woman, stares into the eyes of the Redcoat officer standing over her father’s lifeless body. Stunned at what she has just witnessed, there is nothing she can do when the soldiers haul her brother away for hanging a British Stamp Agent. Devoted to her brother, and the cause, she will help him fight for independence. Captain Jeremy Burke, officer in the King’s army, arrives in the New World and discovers the colonies have an elegant simplicity that surprises him, especially the beautiful Heaton woman. He has never had a problem with self-discipline, until now. The painful road of time, separate lives, and war require determination and courage for two enemies to embrace a love so powerful and forbidden.
