Love Hamilton: An American Musical? You'll adore The Hamilton Affair.


War will bring them together.
Peace will tear them apart. History will make them immortal . . .

Born a bastard and raised an orphan in the slavery-ridden Caribbean, Alexander Hamilton must prove his worth on the bloody battlefields of the American Revolution.

A wealthy child of privilege, Elizabeth Schuyler has never wanted for anything, yet she longs for a life of so much more.

When fate brings them together, a passionate, life-long love affair begins. But to Alexander, burdened by his tragic origins, matters of honour can never be forgotten. As he risks everything for the future of his bold new country, this extraordinary marriage will be tested like no other – and become forever immortalised in hearts and minds.


'The Hamilton novel that immediately leaps to the top of the list' Joseph J. Ellis

'A portrait of a love so deep it was able to survive betrayal and a devastatingly public scandal'

'Cobbs' depiction of Hamilton will endear him in the hearts of readers'
