"By Honor Betrayed", Alex Beecroft's latest novella, is a perfect example of her trademark blend of historical accuracy, philosophical themes and heartwarming love story. The 18th century truly comes to life here with all its light and dark sides, beauty and culture existing right next to barbarous executions, prejudice, social injustice and crime, and the heroes - Tom and Conrad - are very convincing as men of their time, marked by their respective social backgrounds and beliefs. Nevertheless, their love and readiness to make sacrifices for each other transcends their particular historical period and makes them extremely likable and understandable even from a modern perspective. The supporting cast of characters is wonderful as well (this even applies to Conrad's horse that has more of a personality than many human characters in other books!), and the action full of mortal peril and steamy love scenes is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat. And yet, at the same time, there are deeper themes of honor, faith and ethics that give the novella a meaning beyond its mere plot. An exciting and very satisfying read!
