The book opens in 1813 Louise & her guide Joseph are fleeing from French spies in the Pyrenees, nearing exhaustion they are forced to take refuge in a cave, she meets Arnaut, the most handsome man she has ever seen. Arnaut, the son of the Marquis de Fontane, who is also a loyal supporter of the king, is hiding his thoroughbred stallion & two foals from Napoleon’s men, when Louise stumbles into the cave and collapses in his arms.
Louise Fauriel comes from a family of talented silversmiths. Widowed for three years when her husband & parents died from smallpox, she and her grandfather live with her brother and his wife in Soho London. Using their artisan shop as a front, Louise & her grandfather run messages between the Comte d’Artois and his brother, King Louis.
Arnaut’s father is willing to organise a revolt if the king will send a member of his family guaranteeing the French freedom of religion. The marquis asks his son to deliver a letter requesting this to the king in England. When Louise is kidnapped by Julie Delaville, one of Napoleon’s elite spies, Arnaut trades the letter he is carrying for her life. But when Arnaut’s leg is badly injured, it falls to Louise to carry a letter through dangerous territory to the marquis.
A fast paced book that is full of mystery & intrigue. The scene shifts from France to England & back to France. Arnaut & Louise are very likeable although Louise is lacking in self worth. Louise’s brother & his wife are mean & treat both Louise & her grandfather despicably. The characters are well portrayed & I compelled to carry on reading to find out how everything worked out. You are taken on a whole range of emotions, I thoroughly enjoyed the book

3.0 out of 5 stars A frothy adventure worth reading 6 Feb. 2017
By Mrs. RML - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
These frothy, adventurous tales are just perfect for an hour or two on a Saturday afternoon. They aren't particularly deep but still offer a compelling story and attractive characters. For me, the cutout covers are a signal that I will get a mostly traditional Regency with a dash of adventure. In this, we meet Louise, a young woman who is delivering letters in the service of the French kings against Bonaparte. She is a French Protestant, living in London, sent back to the motherland on behalf of her grandfather — and what an adventure she has. From her close call in the Pyrenees to her meeting with Arnaut, the most handsome man she has met, to her return to London (where who else shows up?) to her courageous journey back to France, this is a brave, resourceful heroine. Elliott brings in enjoyable bits of history — the silvermakers in exile in London, the condition of the French court, also in exile, and just everyday life of both French and English people. This is a most enjoyable read. ( I received an ARC at NetGalley. Opinions are mine).

5.0 out of 5 stars I have enjoyed this author's books 3 Mar. 2017
By GGG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This novel continues with some of the same characters (the brother Arnaut) from A Scandalous Lady, but is set in London and in southern France. I have enjoyed this author's books, especially learning about some of the cultures and history that you don't usually get in a Regency novel. Here there is a interesting look at the Huguenots in England and the Royalists in Napoleonic France.
3.0 out of 5 stars A Bit of French History 19 Mar. 2017
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a different slant on this period in history, from a French Huguenot's point of view. The story is somewhat contrived since it is unlikely that Louise would be in France when the story begins. The idea that the such a powerful family as the de Fontanes were able to escape the Terror and Napoleon with so little disruption is also a little hard to believe.
Nevertheless, the story does hold one's interest and is a fun read.
4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Regency Tale 1 April 2017
By Avid Reater - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Despite a little heavy handed drama and angst, I enjoyed this book. It kept me turning pages, wondering how our plucky protagonists would escape from certain (probable? possible?) demise at the hands of requisite evil villains, to arrive at their inevitable HEA. Sweet sensuality, but the "rake" does have his implied but non-graphic sexual conquests early on.
