Lesbian Historical Romance — Germany’s Meike von Bismarck is rich, famous, and the top-ranked amateur female tennis player in the world. She seems to have it all, but the Nazis want more. Can Meike deliver the victories Adolf Hitler requires on court while keeping her soul intact off it?
Brash American Helen Wheeler has reached the upper echelons of women’s tennis, but her fiery temper and headline-grabbing social life have prevented her from being accepted by the genteel sport’s fans. When a shadowy government agent presents Helen with compromising photographs of her with Meike von Bismarck, her one-time doubles partner and former lover, will Helen allow her career to be derailed by an inevitable morals charge or will she agree to spy on the woman she once loved?
So much Drama!!!
Set in the late 1930s just before WWII. Meike is a champion tennis star. Unfortunately, she has also been targeted by Hitler to become a Nazi supporter and a face for Nazi sports. Under threats and near constant guard she resists.
Helen is the American equal to Meike. She has accepted the assignment to spy (especially on Meike as the two were loves once upon a time.) to keep out of jail. Now they are together in Germany. Will Meike be able to hold out against the Nazi’s? Will Helen’s betrayal be the final thing that breaks her? How will either of them survive spirit intact?
This book was hard and heavy but good. It is so full of suspense, gads I nearly bit my fingernails to the quick! The characters are so easy to care about. The near constant anxiety as I worried endlessly for Meike’s life was almost too intense. It was interesting to see Helen grow and so painful to see what Meike was put through but when they were together it was such a relief! In the end it all worked out the way it was suppose to but darn if Ms Wallace didn’t make me work for it!
