Red, White and Blue


Having made a dubious wager, Jack Morgan, a young, gifted American arrives in Oxford in 1923 determined to become a Rugby Blue. With the odds stacked against him and competition intense, his chances are further undermined when he meets Rose, a true English beauty. Unfortunately for Jack, Rose happens to be the rugby captain’s girl, who also plays for the Blues team. However, the captain also needs to win the Varsity Match against rival Cambridge if he is to fulfil his own sporting ambitions and hold onto Rose. Should Jack win a Blue, a place in the US Olympic rugby team awaits him and the chance of a gold medal at the 1924 Paris Olympic Games. Set in both Oxford and London, Red, White and Blue follows Morgan on his quest. Red, White and Blue is an endearing adventure that will appeal to fans of romance and sporting novels alike. Readers with a love of rugby and the sporting world more widely will find themselves transported back to the 1920s as they follow Jack’s story to succeed.
