An excellent historical romance.
on 11 January 2008
I wouldn't usually write reviews either, but this would have been a book that I would have passed over - cheesy cover, trite title and a plot synopsis I feel I've read before - if others hadn't reviewed it elsewhere.
The book starts with a French spy, imprisoned by her own side, who in escaping frees the English spies trapped with her. The conflict in the book springs from the different aims of the French-spy Heroine, and the English-spy Hero - and the romance more from their similarities - both intelligent, competent, experienced, and principled people.
The dialogue is very well written - clever, and often funny - and the plot flows well. Right up to the end, I wasn't sure how the author would resolve the situation. And the romance works very well - at the end, you feel this couple is really meant to be together.
Just a great historical romance.
