Patricia MacPherson is not the man she claims to be. The Seven Years War is over but trouble in the American colonies is brewing. Maintaining her disguise as a young man, Patricia is finding success as Patrick MacPherson. Formerly a surgeon's mate in His Majesty's Navy, Patrick has lately been employed aboard the colonial merchant schooner Andromeda, smuggling foreign molasses into Rhode Island. Late October, amidst riots against the newly imposed Stamp Act, she leaves Newport bound for the West Indies on her first run as Andromeda's master. In Havana a chance meeting with a former enemy presents unexpected opportunities while an encounter with a British frigate and an old lover threatens her liberty - and her life. Rhode Island Rendezvous is the third book of the Patricia MacPherson Nautical Adventure Series.

About the Author

Linda Collison's composite career includes critical care and emergency nursing, teaching skydiving, volunteer firefighting, and freelance writing for magazines. With her husband Bob Russell, she has sailed thousands of nautical miles, many of them aboard their sailboat Topaz. The three weeks they spent as voyage crewmembers aboard HM Bark Endeavour, a replica of Captain James Cook's ship, sparked her interest in maritime history and inspired the acclaimed Young Adult novel Star-Crossed (Alfred A Knopf; 2006) which evolved into Barbados Bound; Book 1 of the Patricia MacPherson's Nautical Adventure Series, adult historical fiction.
