I received an arc of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Can two opposing sides find love all the while a hidden enemy lies close to home.
I found this an intriguing read. It is unusual in Regency novels for a main character to have served at Napoleon’s side. There is a delightful mix of intrigue, action, drama and above all else romance.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has a few hours to spare because once you start it, you can’t help but finish it.
