Driven by fierce patriotism to England, the

The bewitchingly beautiful but illegitimate
Anna De Mouchet agrees to give the marquess back the money she "won."
On one condition: that he marry her.

From this forced marriage rises a love as powerful as the canons of the war which tears them apart.

    The initial set up for the story is hard to swallow

    Not badly written, but I'm not sure I'll be able to finish. So, two stars for the rough going at the start.

    Enjoyed the book very much. Storyline was good and the cat and mouse playing with husband and wife was so frustrating that it kept my interest to the point that I couldn't put it done. I will be looking for future books by this author.

    his loyal servant.too much depends upon each not talking to each other about important happenings.

    Georgette Heyer reincarnated

    A most enjoyable read!!! I loved the plot and characters from the mother in law to Kate who married for greedy social gain only to may have lost the gamble for social position to Anna who married to save her country but got a greater reward than a medal; to Charlotte and Lydia who married for the right reaaons and for Cnythia who was willing to wait for love• My only regret was that the book was not longer as I hated it when I had come to the last page• Spies, intregue and love--what else could you ask for? A vampire? Not needed to make this a great read!!!
