Sabinne ‘Saber’ Darrieux’s father, the billionaire CEO of Frontenac Global Security has been kidnapped. His ransom is not cash in a numbered offshore account, or a briefcase of Bearer Bonds but something utterly unique, incredibly valuable, and until recently, hidden away from the world.

The kidnapper seems to know Saber very well, and knows that the next day, through her

This is a superb romantic suspense with two brilliant lead characters. Sabinne Darrieux (aka Saber) is an elite translator, working around the world with some very powerful people. She's also the daughter of the CEO of a global security company and when he's kidnapped she's the one required to obtain and deliver the ransom - and she'll need to steal it to do so. Little does she - or the kidnapper - know but the same object is being sought by British Intelligence agent, Adrian Steele, as hidden i ...more

The cat-and-mouse game that ensues spans countries and requires that layers of deception be uncovered and dealt with as each of them races against the c

This has lots of 'James Bond' type action with sizzling chemistry between the characters. My rating 4.25.

Sabine is a beautiful, captivating woman who would rather be respected for her skills than her looks. Her family built its fortunes on thievery, but her father has moved the family businesses into legitimate fields. Sabine is one of their experts in security services and works as an elite translator when she is not accessing and improving security systems.

Sabine’s father has been kidnapped an

Short chapters speed things along. As I picked up the book, I raised an eyebrow at the number of chapters. A book with over 100 chapters? Yes. As I began to move through the chapters, I realized that each chapter ranged from only a couple of paragraphs to a few pages. This made it difficult for me to settle into the story or feel that I knew the characters until well into the book--but, it certainly kept the action and adventure going quickly to keep me turning the pages. I felt that I was const ...more

The Fabergé Entaglement is a spy thriller that will most certainly sate the palate of fans of the genre. With a mix of seductive danger and forbidden romance, The Fabergé Entanglement starts intense and only increases the pressure as time goes on. Following the converging stories of two driven masters of subterfuge, the pace is very quick and the action is intense.

I personally found the chapter pace perhaps a bit too quick for my tastes; new chapters begin sometimes a page and a half after the

I was looking for a fun book to read and The Fabergé Entanglement was very entertaining! It's been awhile since I read a romantic suspense novel and this one did not disappoint.

Sabinne, otherwise known as Saber, is suddenly thrust into a ransom situation when her father is kidnapped and she must steal a very valuable Fabergé egg and deliver it to release him. But on the night she plans this heist, she runs into a problem when she encounters another intruder trying to steal the same egg! That int

I love reading a wide range of books from spy to murder mystery to science fiction to biography. The biography is for when I want to explore the lives of others. The rest all fall into what I call escape reading. They take me away from my daily grind by drawing me into their plot. None do that better than one with international intrigue combined with a touch of romance. The Fabergé Entanglement does just that.

Here we have a talented, smart, independent professional woman - Saber Darrieux - a gre

I tried not to finish this too quickly, but it was such a good read! I immediately loved the main character, Saber, and when Steele came along, I was hooked! The chapters are very short which is why there are so many. Don't fret.

Without giving too much away, I'll say that the very beginning was hilarious and I actually double checked that I'd clicked on the right book from my library. (Cy and Saber need a series of their own!) But from there, it quickly took a drastic turn with a lot more to the

The Faberge Entanglement is an exciting, suspenseful, sexy novel from start to finish. We have two very strong, smart, sassy and sexy main characters, Saber and Steele. I loved them both equally, Saber especially. It isn't too often that you find a female main character who is so powerful, smart and an incredible fighter like her. She holds her own throughout this story and I really enjoyed the power struggle between her and Steele.

The plot line itself was pretty exciting and changes as we learn

Remember those Marvel comic movie intros where the comic book pages are flipping really fast?  This action packed "James Bond picks a fight with Catwoman" (aka Steele and Saber) novel is just that.  To be honest, there wasn't a lot of character development at the beginning of the book, just two gorgeous super-smart people lustily duking it out over a valuable Faberge egg.  This improves slightly as the storyline continues and we are thrown from one hair-raising adventure after another.

I love suspense and thrillers but romantic thrillers are still a bit new to me. This was a great one to break the ice with. I could not put this read down. I really liked Sabinne and was a bit jealous of her transliterate skills! I would think that normally, when someone is kidnapped it is (I know, cliché) normally the female main character or supporting character with the male main character coming to save her. Excerpt that this story does not exactly follow that story-line. I loved the fast-pa ...more

This is a book that It sounded really good but I never got to that point. Although, the chapters are very short like one to three pages long; which made the reading go by quicker. Before, I knew it I was already a third of the way into the story. Yet, there was nothing exciting that had transpired within these first one pages or so. It felt like I was missing something as if this was the second book in a series. So, the authors felt like they did not need to speed the story along with action or ...more

I enjoyed reading this book from the first page up to the end. It is so thrilling and oh the best action book I read so far this year. I loved how smart and so quick Saber is. This girl is the bomb. She is so amazing. I loved how talented and skillful she is. She is my favorite character and Steele too. These two are so insatiable for each other.

A fast paced thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat and rooting for the romance.

There is a little language that might turn you off. But keep reading. The story/plot line is worth it.

The reader takes a ride with Saber and ends up with rooting for Steele as the romance smolders and the sparks fly.

You'll be on a thrilling ride. I love a good suspenseful thriller with just a hint of romance. The Fabrege' Entanglement is a thriller ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat. You

I have to admit, this read started out a little confusing but it quickly picked up. I am finding that one of my new favorite genres are thriller with a hint of romance. The romance just makes things so much more fun!

This was definitely an edge of your seat read while there were many characters all going after the same object. And when you thought things were starting to be in the clear – something else happened.

I loved the mystery behind the entire story and following Saber and Steele.

I haven’t read many spy novels, they’re not usually one of my favorite genres, but I’m glad I read The Fabergé Entanglement. It is full of action and I never knew what to expect. There’s also sexual tension between Steele and Saber which makes it more interesting.

Review at A Bookworm's Musing

The novel has pace because of the short chapters structure, but that structure doesn't help in following the storyline or getting the character sketches, I feel. I liked the characters of the main protagonists though, and the plot itself is quite well thought out. I think it would appeal to quite a few readers because of the mix of romance and spy-thriller. And I can imagine watching it on TV one day perhaps. Good luck to the authors and the book. I ho

Very interesting & intriguing

When I read the synopsis of this book I was very interested in checking it out. It is definitely one of those books that makes you think and come up with theories of what might happen. The authors are new to me, so I am not familiar with their style, but they are subtly distinguishable, in terms of knowing when the writing styles switch. Very enjoyable reading.

Meryn and Brookes have characterization down to a science. Their characters really run the show and make the story so fun to read about.

This was a very action packed Suspense that definitely kept me flipping pages. There were surprises along the way that definitely shocked me. Anything but predictable.

Great pacing and a well written storyline.

Real and Vivid. I liked the way that Meryn and Brookes wove their tale.

Characterization was huge in this novel. The characters were all very well developed and had their own motivations and faults. It made them seem more real to me as the reader.

I also really liked the flow of this novel and the way the Suspense and Action unfolded. It felt very smooth.
