It was November 1863 and
Captain David Reynolds, of the Seventeenth Pennsylvania
Cavalry, was fully prepared to die. Someone had once told
him that dying was quite painless. He didn’t believe
it, though he secretly hoped it was true as he and his men
prepared to ride into chaos and horror. The battle of Mine
Run had begun.
Jennifer Winston could hear the booming
sounds of cannon fire miles away from her Virginia home.
She knew that the war had begun two years ago, but had been
insulated from it all by her father. Little did she know
that her life was about to irrevocably change. She would
be tested to the limits of her courage and endurance for
a man—a man who was the enemy.
It’s 1863 and America
is deep into the ravages of its Civil War, where enemies
are bitterly divided by the blood of battle and death on
both sides. But out of this carnage author Diane M Wylie
has created two amazingly real characters from opposite
sides of the conflict that discover love is possible no
matter how unlikely. I congratulate Diane M Wylie for writing
such an original historical romance and recommend this outstanding
book to all readers as my PUBLISHER’S PICK for writing
excellence, April 2006! -Debra Womack, Publisher

Reviews for MY ENEMY, MY LOVE by Diana M. Wylie
"Diane M Wylie has created characters that
are so lifelike that the reader is dragged into all of the agonies
and joys as they occur. The author has done considerable research
into this time period, and this enthralling story unravels as
if the reader were reliving events. My Enemy, My Love is much
more than an impressive debut. It is a heart-warming romance that
will have readers sighing as they relive “first-kiss”
moments, then despairing over the fate of the many fine young
men who rode off to battle. If you enjoy historical romance, I
strongly urge you to read this story. For this reader, it is a
keeper with a + + +!"

"This [book] is so good it would be a wonderful movie. I
thoroughly enjoyed the romance between David and Jenny. The scenes
are well written taking you into where you can just about see
the lands and the characters. There are many emotions running
rapid in this book, between friends, lovers, family and the love
of lands the characters call home. This was a page-turner and

"My Enemy, My Love is an emotionally moving story of betrayal,
hope and love. Jenny has never known a love like the one she has
with David and in the turbulent times of war, together they will
risk everything to make it work. I thoroughly enjoyed this story
as it relates of how far they would go to stay together and keep
their sanity, from freeing Jenny’s father from incarceration
to rescuing David and others from an enemy prison camp. This is
definitely a wonderful story of hope."

they fight to overcome the many challenges and hardships of their
times. Endearing family relationships keep you turning the pages

Diane Wylie is a new voice in historical romance who will please
