Summary

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, an 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. 
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. This novel is a great story of love and bravery and I enjoyed it immensely."  Bonnie from Coffee Time Romance 
"Ms. Baker dies a masterful job weaving 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."  Reviewed by Bluebell of the Long and the Short of It.

But she gets a rude introduction to frontier living when she encounters a drunken cowboy named Gene Stewart. Though his rough demeanor is a shock to Madeline’s refined sensibilities, she comes to realize that he means no harm—and soon learns there are far worse characters for her to worry about. There are some bad men who would do anything to see Alfred run off his land. While Gene tries to prove to Madeline that he can change for the better, tensions in El Cajon are on the rise. And when violence breaks out, Madeline discovers courage matters a lot more than manners on the frontier
