Mainly set in the wilderness of North America, Angélique faces a new series of challenges - some of which sorely test even her ingenuity and experience.

The Countess Angelique - Ex
Sergeanne Golon - 6th in series
This book starts deceptively, it heralds the safe arrival, across the treacherous ocean, of a united family. Wife finds husband, husband finds new daughter, mother re-unites with sons, one of whom she thought dead. The makings of happiness of a delirious nature - it doesn't last long, there would be no story if it did. First of all, there is the matter of two adults who have not seen each other for 15 years needing to re-establish a norm.
This book is wonderful. I would have given it 5 stars on its own, but being its part of a series of books (# 7 to be exact) that have each and every one been Magnificent-Hornblowing-Fireworks 5's, I had to give this book a 4 for being every so slightly less tremendous. In truth it's a 4.8.

When I was kid in the 70s these books were considered VERY racy, so of course I snuck and read them. Rereading them now, they're still great!

I read all these over 40 years ago and loved them.
My first in a history, romance series -- I LOVED all of them and was sad when Serge died. The last book, by Anne, clearly showed what Serge added.
Very sexy cover. I love a woman on a cover wearing a man's shirt, nothing under. Also it hints of some danger with the horseman.

A wonderful first look at French colonization of America. I still want to go to Maine, all because of this book.
This is the seventh book in the Angelique series. I read this in high school many years ago.
These books were my first romantic sexy fiction... Loved all that I could get my hands on
This one was disappointing compared to the other books in the series.
