Lady Alexandria and her young niece Diana are visiting Paris when Napoleon (who is just a Consul at this point in time) declares war on Britain and orders every English person in France to be arrested. The girls are high-tailing it for the coast when they are suddenly joined by Paxten Marsett, Alexandria's old lover, who is also being chased by soldiers but for different reasons.

I enjoyed this Regency. The characters were well-drawn and the hero was more interesting and more of a rounded person than many of the usual heroes in this genre. What let the story down for me was the reason why the hero and heroine split up in the first place. It felt a bit inadequate, which left me thinking that the heroine hadn't really cared enough in the first place.
Sadly I don't remember much of this book despite reading it three days ago. I think Heyer has ruined me for these Regency romances. I do remember that the Man was angry at the Lady for not running away with him and ruining her reputation and that of her young son. I think that's pretty lame for a hero, no?
A very exciting read, lots of action and "on the edge of your seat" moments. Cant wait to read Diana story, she was the most vivid character by far x
