Overview

When war shatters the fragile peace of 1803 between France and England, Alexandria must get her niece home safe. Escaping from Paris will not be easy, for Bonaparte has ordered the arrest of all English—and there is an added complication. The man she once loved her, the man for whom she almost gave up everything, the man who left her branded "Lady Scandal", needs her help.

Although she has not seen Paxten Marsett in years, she recognizes her former lover's voice when he hides in her coach. But can they overcome a past left bitter by betrayals and find a second chance at love?

Half French and half English, Paxten Marsett has never felt at home anywhere. Now he is unwelcome in France due to a misunderstanding with a general's wife. But in fleeing France, he comes across the one woman he has never forgotten.

Will he use this chance to seduce her into falling in love with him again so he might break her heart—or will he find himself seduced instead by an old love?

    Good

    I enjoyed it but this is the second book I have read by this author. I like the story but it would be nice to have a different start instead in the middle and reflecting on the past. But all in all, it was good. I would not read again.
