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.

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?

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.

Lady Scandal

This is quite an adventure taking place when Napoleon ordered all English arrested. The story is
about a Lady and her niece escaping for their lives. Along the way they meet up with an old lover who helps them.
