I started this book on my dinner break. I didn’t go to sleep that night until I finished it. While I might be a little masochistic when it comes to [not]balancing sleeping, working, and reading, most of the credit goes to this book for being just that fantastic: Saved by a benevolent and wealthy widow from a life of poverty and drudgery, Charlotte Raven is now a debutante with a seemingly unimpeachable reputation; however, her past is still very much a part of her present. Her connections to the London underworld make her invaluable to Lord Edward Durnham as he investigates a plot to smuggle English gold to France, but, of course, it doesn’t take long for him to find the clever, willful Charlotte invaluable for her own sake. Full of mystery, intrigue, and a healthy dose of romantic tension, The Emperor’s Conspiracy is a quick, utterly enjoyable read for any lover of historical fiction.
