Ring of Secrets

eBook available at your favorite eRetailer.

This exciting romantic spy novel from Roseanna M. White combines fascinating cloak-and-dagger secrets with a tale of love and intrigue during the Revolutionary War.

Winter Reeves is an aristocratic Patriot forced to hide her heart amid the Loyalists of the City of New York. She has learned to keep her ears open so she can pass information on British movements to Robbie Townsend, her childhood friend, and his spy ring. If she’s caught, if she’s hung for espionage…well, she won’t be. Robbie has taught her the tools of the trade: the wonders of invisible ink, drop locations and, most importantly, a good cover.

Bennet Lane returns to New York from his Yale professorship with one goal: to find General Washington’s spy hidden among the ranks of the elite. Searching for a wife was supposed to be nothing more than a convenient cover story for his mission, but when he meets Winter, with her too-intelligent eyes in her too-blank face, he finds a mystery that can’t be ignored.

Both believers…and both committed to a separate cause. Will their faith in God lead them to a shared destiny or lives lived apart?

A Word from the Author

“While I've always been intrigued by stories of espionage, studying the Culper Ring was eye-opening. I love that this tight-knit group weren't well-trained super-spies, but ordinary people. People like you and me who served God first, their country next, and only afterward their own desires. Though their individual actions often seemed small, they regularly risked their lives for their cause—and in so doing, changed the course of history.”
Roseanna M. White, author of Ring of Secrets

“Historical fiction at its very best!”
Kathleen E. Belongia,

“Intriguing storyline, suspense at every turn, wonderfully and complexly developed characters, and a heart-rending, beautiful romance. I loved every word and am counting the days for the next book in the series. Can't go wrong with Roseanna White.”
—Joanne Sher, ACFW Midwest Zone Director

“Author Roseanna White has done it again—she has produced a masterful historical fiction work that keeps the reader riveted. As a lover of historical fiction, this novel delighted me. One very important piece of the story—that Ms. White presents with a ring of authenticity—is the element of faith. In many novels, the element of faith seems rather arbitrary and feels forced. Ring of Secrets presents a faith that not only naturally fits into the story line, but may well inspire readers in their trust in the Lord.”
Julie Coleman, author of Unexpected Love: God's Heart Revealed in Jesus' Conversations with Women

Ring of Secrets was a pleasant read, and I’ll definitely be reading the other books in the series.”
Hayden Wand,

Ring of Secrets held me enthralled the whole way through.”
Anne Baxter Campbell,

"Ring of Secrets is a wonderfully satisfying story in every way. The characters are original and real-to-life, and they actually have lives beyond the romance plotline. I appreciated the fact that every chapter didn’t end with a dramatic cliffhanger like some authors are in the habit of doing, because I didn’t feel emotionally manipulated into reading on—I genuinely wanted to keep reading simply because I cared about the relatable characters and their lives. I was also very excited to read a novel centered around an historical organization that I’ve never before encountered in fiction. This book isn’t just another romance novel – it is honest literature. I eagerly await the next book in the Culper Ring Series."
