If Ever in Love The Carolina Patriots 1783 Series
Ann M. Trader
He had but one requirement in a wife...devotion.
Camden, South Carolina 1783
Colonial Captain Harry Fleming wears his passions like badges of honor, a man considered by most as smart, decisive…even impulsive. With the Patriot victory and his fighting days behind him, his homecoming sours when he discovers his homestead in shambles and childhood sweetheart married to his cousin.
Most comfortable in breeches and with her trusty hound by her side, Olivia Parr is a half-white/half-native healer…a resourceful woman and no man’s puppet. Yet when her path collides with the dashing captain, his charm makes her dream of a life and home like none she has ever known.
Loathe to become a hermit, Harry proposes a marriage to Olivia based on devotion. Will she wager her heart to a man hardened to love? As unresolved feelings linger and enemies plot against them for greed and gain, will they risk all and unveil the truth of what lovers must do…if ever in love?

Inspiration for the story.
I lived near Camden, South Carolina for about a decade, and this beautiful place—rich in Colonial American history—seemed the perfect setting for If Ever in Love. This is my first published novel, and I began plotting the story and mapping out the characters in 2019. Over the course of the next two years, I wrote, revised, and edited with a wonderful group of beta readers and fellow writers. I realized my dream in October 2021 when The Wild Rose Press offered me a publishing contract. We plan for this to be a three book series, and I’m close to finishing the first draft of the second book right now. I hope readers will enjoy this story of unexpected love, survival during a rugged period of American history, and the enduring bonds of family.
I enjoy spending time with my family, trying out new recipes, and relaxing on my back porch to read and write. These days I take walks around my neighborhood, but when I was sixteen, I hiked the Grand Canyon with a group of friends. I love watching television dramas (in no special order: Stranger Things, Succession, The Gilded Age, The Last Kingdom, Bridgerton, 1883, Outlander, Poldark, Yellowstone, Outer Banks, and Peaky Blinders) and reading a great romance book.
