Review

Praise for the novels of Joanna Bourne:

"Once in a while, during every reader's literary life, you encounter a book that reminds you why you are a reader. It renews your faith, if faith was lost; it rekindles your interest, if interest waned; and every word, every page, is a wonder.....Joanna Bourne is one of the best authors currently writing. If Ms. Bourne continues writing at such quality, she would deserve to be called one of the greatest romance authors ever. And I mean that." --All About Romance

"Books by [Joanna Bourne] are like a box of fine Laduree macaroons, not cheap junk food. They should be leisurely savored as the exquisite delicacies they are, for Bourne is a master wordsmith, able to charm, excite or break a reader’s heart with the stroke of her pen."--Dear Author

I had this sitting in my Kindle for a rainy day thinking it might be okay, never realizing what I gem I had. Just sitting there! While I wasted time with other drivel!!
It really, pretty much, had it all for me: adventure, character development (including many characters that were witty and you couldn't help but care for), relationship development (at one point I thought, "we'll that was quick", but this is one book it's totally okay), and a good, solid plot.
Grey/Robert made my heart melt and for how the author created his character and the things he said. I will be devouring another of her novels next.

I love Shanna and The Iron Rose, and feel this novel belongs on my 5 star list with them.

I wish I could award 10 stars! I have been reading romance novels since the late 1970's when, as a young teen, I stumbled onto Victoria Holt and Kathleen Woodiwiss. Since then I have read hundreds, possibly thousands of romantic novels. Contemporary, Historical, Paranormal, etc. This novel, by Joanna Bourne, is on my list of top five - possibly number one. It is right up there with Shanna, Once in a Blue Moon, The Flame and the Flower and Across a Moonlit Sea. The character development is unbelievable. The plot is intricate and surprising. The descriptions were so good, you actually believe that you have seen France in the time of Napoleon. If you like historical romance, read this book. You won't be disappointed. Annique and Grey are characters that will stay with you for a long time, and with Joanna Bourne's excellent writing, you will savour each word in their story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very poignant romance, a bit uneven at times Feb. 24 2009
By Hayley Cann TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In this book, enemy spies get thrown in jail together. When they escape, the English spy captures the French spy to take her secrets to his masters, but his admiration for her skills and his attraction to her starts to distract him from his duty.

This is a very skillfully written book, from a suspense point of view. There are twists and turns to the story that eludes the usual cookie cutter spy romance. Annique's character is especially well characterized even if Robert's stays a bit vague. The only drawback to the plot is that the solution to everyone's problems arrives too abruptly. This makes the reader wonder why the characters spent so long agonizing between duty when the solution was so simple, and it makes the denouement less emotional, less romantic.

From a romance point of view, I thought the book was touching at times and frustrating at others. Maybe even too realistically so. Without revealing notable scenes, one can say that it is hard to see where the attraction was on Annique's part, Robert never seems to put her first, until the very end, and that's long after a long list of devious things he does to her. They're spies and enemies, but while Annique tries to escape, she doesn't undermine Robert's purpose like he does hers. So for a long time, the romantic conflict seems really one sided, with Robert acting like a heartless spy. It seems as though the romantic conflict on Robert's side is feeling remorse each time he does something he feels wrong about. If the reader can cope with this, the book will be an excellent read.
