3,5/5 stars!

Both have had their assets and titles seized and held by the government formed after the coup d'etat. Jean finds himself associated with an unsavoury group of m

The dedication was my very first clue that the author would be making every effort to avoid anachronisms of speech, dress, and motivations--not the major ones of love and greed, family and country, but the minor ones of trying to jump class (one simply didn't unless one moved to the colonies and even then one largely knew one's place) or behave with impropriety. The language used was, in fact, the somewhat stiff and proper style then in vogue, with appropriate vocabulary sprinkled with French a ...more

This is an unusual story. Jean Marie Natale Landerville De Lacey is a vicomte and escape from France during the troubles. Mademoiselle Eugenie Ponette, her mother and a few of the servants, also escaped during the revolution.
There is a lot going on in this tale, because of his lack of funds, he falls in with smugglers. There is murder, deceit, lies and kidnapping all intertwined with kindness, friendship, caring and love. It is complex but soon straightens itself out. I loved this, not knowing w

This is a quick-paced, wonderfully written book with many intriguing aspects. The characters represented are realistic in their flaws yet idealistic in some of their wants, thus adding an unexpected depth to the story. I really enjoyed how unique this book was (I finished it in an hour), and would highly recommend it to anyone who loves a well-written and memorable historical romance book. I've definitely found a new favorite author! 🤓 ...more

Romance and Adventure

I enjoyed reading this historical romance. It happened at a turbulent time for the French. Many nobles fled France in fear for their lives. Two of them find love in their new home, but they had to contend with smugglers and kidnappers before they could find their happily ever after.

Great Regency Romance

With the reputation of Frenchmen, it is no wonder why she does not believe he will be faithful. His smuggling days are something he already wants to rid himself, but again, not something easy to get out of. Thankfully she has already admitted she loves him too. Thank you for an engaging story, Danny and Debbie Scott.

I felt that the storyline was ok and the characters were alright. I just felt that the book had more potential and I would have like to have seen that explored.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

Bree was raised on a diet of tea and crumpets, sweet romance, epic fantasy, old movies, and swashbuckling adventure. It’s no wonder she goes through life imagining herself in other places and other times.
She is owned by two rescue dogs, but she keeps it very quiet from them that she is equally a cat person.
She lives in Queensland, Australia, but has spent time in three other states as well - Vict
