Be Not Afraid by Alyssa Cole
Elijah Sutton thinks his country, and his freedom, are the only things were worth fighting for until he meets Kate Foster, a runaway slave who has joined up with the British. The Crown has promised slaves freedom if they enlist with the Loyalists, and Kate thinks Elijah a fool for siding with the Patriots. Despite their difference of opinions, there is an irresistible attraction between them that neither can deny. When Elijah is taken prisoner by the Brits, he and Kate are thrown together on an inevitably divergent path. Before their dueling loyalties and the ghosts of Kate's past threaten to tear them apart, they must decide what price they're willing to pay for love.

Rebels at Heart by Kate McMurray
Charles Foxworth is among New York City’s most fashionable men, though he is only pretending to be a dashing British aristocrat. Still, he is content with his role and has little interest in the war. His companion, Isaac Ward, has more invested in the coming conflict; Isaac was born a slave, and though he is now free, that freedom could be guaranteed if he chose to pick up arms. Then war arrives on the shores of the city and Charles’s idyll is over. He quickly realizes that the war could take from him the very thing he holds most dear: Isaac.
Home by Stacey Agdern
In December of 1776, the British occupy Manhattan and a large part of the city's population of Sephardic Jews decide to decamp to safer ground in Philadelphia. When the New York wedding of her dreams is placed in jeopardy by the mass exodus, Abigail Gomez takes matters into her own hands. Her fiancé will ruin her, and they will marry in the place she calls home, with those she loves surrounding her. When Jacob Maimon is confronted with his betrothed's daring plan, he finds himself torn between his desire to fight for his adopted country and his desire to spend the rest of his life with the woman he is increasingly beginning to consider...home.
