About the Author

Elizabeth's love of writing romance couldn't be further from the life she had carved out for herself. Raised in outback and rural Australia, Elizabeth was determined to live a life vibrant with passion, travel, adventure and discovery. And so she invested a lot of years doing just that; she counts serving as a commissioned officer in the Royal Australian Navy, travelling by safari truck through Africa and back-packing through Eastern Europe with her young family as just a few of her achievements. But in the ensuing years, the urge to write intensified as story lines and dialogue continued to materialise from the recesses of her mind. She finally accepted that the voices in her head were really characters enmeshed in the tumultuous Georgian and Regency periods, vying for life on paper. After a nomadic lifestyle, Elizabeth has now settled into her own home and lives surrounded by the nation's treasures, her own hero and one true love, two beautiful daughters and two delinquent miniature long-hair dachshunds.

A bit slow to start as the background information is brought to light for the reader, the story soon moves into a well-paced and engaging romp, clever and twisty with plenty of moments to appreciate. Napoleon has taken over the rule of France, and all indications lean toward his attention being set on Britain, and it is up to our characters to ferret out the real story to forestall if not entirely derail the rumored plans. Liliane has been summoned to France by her cousins, to aid in the continuation of her grandfather’s legacy. Unbeknownst to Liliane, her cousin Solange is a spy for Britain, and she has been promised to aid in a mission with Sinclair Charlcroft, a British Naval officer. Far from throwing up her hands and shirking, Liliane uses her not inconsiderable intelligence combined with her beauty to discover just who is leaking information to the other side. The acceptance (and near omnipresent attraction) that Sin shows Liliane is refreshing, and their relationship develops naturally, even with the overriding emotional highs and lows caused by adrenaline and tension during their hunt. Intriguing for the new perspectives on setting and society from the French perspective of the day, Squire brings an engaging story to readers. Notably, for a debut offering, this story has few glaring issues: a bit slow to start as the backgrounds are presented, the care and attention paid to those details flowed well when considering the character development and actions. There were no huge gaps in the characters, and their relationship did develop nicely with a solid ‘getting to know you’ sense of time passing as they worked out the two puzzles in front of them: who they are trying to discover sharing secrets and just what the person they are working with is really like. A solid story that is sure to please historic romance fans. I received an eArc of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
