About the Book:
You've heard the raves about the Tony Award winning musical Hamilton. But what happened to Dear Theodosia, the fiery daughter Aaron Burr serenades? Hard to Die is an engrossing, speculative fiction novel that provides a new take on the uncharted fate of Theodosia Burr Alston, daughter of Alexander Hamilton's murderer. Combining elements of history, the paranormal, and suspense, it breathes fresh air into Theodosia's story.
Theodosia disappeared at sea in 1813. In Hard to Die, she reappears years later with one assignment: She must help a living soul navigate a life-changing crossroad. However, if she fails, she will be erased from history's timeline, forgotten forever.
Former spy Richard Cox thinks he's safe as a West Point cadet. When his former commander presents him with an impossible ultimatum, he has one week to choose. He must either return to spying or die.
Theodosia and Richard plunge into a world where no one is as they appear. As they fight their attraction, they must learn to trust each other or become pawns for a bigger foe determined to see them fail.
