From the Inside Flap
night--the dark, dangerous highwayman who stole her heart....<br><br>"It was a fine night for treachery, dark with a pale moon rising...." <br><br>Like a wraith he appeared in the Coventry night, the notorious highwayman called Captain Starlight. Renée d'Anton watched, breathless, as the cloaked figure commanded, "Stand and deliver!" and her coach shuddered to a halt. Little did he know Renée had come in desperation to meet him. For the dark, seductive highwayman was her only hope in a perilous game of chance....<br> <br>She was pure temptation, challenging Tyrone Hart to steal a set of heirloom rubies and name his price. He couldn't resist her. So he agreed to risk his life for the fiery beauty--to recover the jewels that would free her from an arranged marriage and an unspeakable threat.

Such care is also taken with Renee. I felt that her character was not quite as strong as Tyrone's but there is depth to her. Fighting her way through a war torn France, especially as a highly placed aristocrat, was not an easy task. Her brother was left mute at the horrors he witnessed, and she had to deal with that as well. Renee had help, which leads us to the secondary characters of the story, who really made the whole plot come together. The plot was richly interwoven with dispicible deeds, great writing and colorful characters.
I only have a few small problems with the story. After going through so much trouble to record the feelings of horror that the aristocrats in France must have felt and the care that they took to try and secure their futures outside France, I felt it was a bit shabbily done that Ms. Canham misplaces (in time)someone as famous as Chopin. I also felt she rushed the end. I don't want to give away the plot, but, what happened to the uncle? Are we waiting for a sequel with her brother to right that wrong? A brief mention was made by Roth that Paxton ran, but there was no confirmation of this and no real care about it. I realize they had plenty of money but wouldn't you try to find him on principle? Anyway, this was a great read, so don't miss it!!!
Renee was helping Roth capture the highwayman only because refusal meant the death of her fourteen year old brother. However, she also expected to double cross Roth. Never would she submit to Roth or be forced to wed Edgar. With the highwayman's help, she and her brother would escape and be far away from everyone's reach!
***Not a typical highwayman kidnaps helpless woman story! This woman has strength and courage, even though she does not FEEL strong or courageous! No simpering Miss here! I loved it!***
