Meanwhile the emperor himself sends Delphine on a delicate espionage mission to London. Gideon and Delphine may manage to defend their dangerous secrets, but not their hearts. As passion takes hold, it is time to decipher their own complex code of love.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Espionage, double agents, passion, and deception are at the heart of this historical romance by Cheryl Sawyer, set against the backdrop of the Peninsular War (1808-14) between England and Bonaparte's France. It pits two patriots against each other, the young Frenchwoman Delphine Dagleish and the stalwart Englishman Sir Gideon Landor. They meet on the French colony of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, where Gideon has been held prisoner. After his escape and the English takeover of Delphine's lands, they meet again in London. Delphine has been sent on a delicate errand by Napoleon; Sir Gideon has been tasked with deciphering France's secret code. Though powerfully attracted to each other, both consider the other a traitor. How they find their way to true romance is Sawyer's forte, as she weaves a complex tapestry of love against the backdrop of history. Ginger Curwen

    Regency romance fans obtain a fantastic treat

    English naval officer Sir Gideon Landor holds the treacherous Delphine Dalgeish responsible for his capture by the French legion. She, on the other hand, believes that Gideon deserved what he got as she handed over a contemptible double agent. Taken to the French island of Mauritius, Gideon manages to escape.------------ The French assign Delphine to work in London obtaining information from the loose lips English aristocracy. At the same time Gideon is back home seeking to uncover Napoleon¿s secret message code. They see each other at galas and though both try to avoid the other, the attraction is like a moth to a fire that neither can prevent. Still each has a mission to accomplish and a loyalty to differing governments at war.------------------- Regency romance fans obtain a fantastic treat with Cheryl Sawyer¿s complex love vs. war thriller. The story line is filled with action but the center that holds the tale together is the relationship between the Englishman and Frenchwoman, both loyal to their respective countries. Gideon and Delphine seem genuine as they struggle with attraction that leads to love vs. allegiance and honor. THE CODE OF LOVE is a wonderful historical romance.--------- Harriet Klausner
