Love and survival in the shadow of Waterloo . . . Wearied by his years as a British intelligence officer, Simon Duval resigns his commission after Napoleon's abdication. Hoping to find new meaning in his life, he returns to England, where he discovers his cousin's widow, Suzanne Duval, the Comtesse de Chambron. Working as a seamstress, living in reduced circumstances, Suzanne has had a life as complicated as Simon's. While both believe they are beyond love, their sympathetic bond leads him to propose a marriage of companionship, and Suzanne accepts. She didn't want or expect a true marriage, but as Suzanne joins Simon in a search for his long missing foster brother, warmth and caring begin to heal both their scars-and a powerful passion sparks between them. Then news from France threatens to disrupt their happiness. Napoleon has escaped from Elba and Wellington personally asks Simon to help prevent another devastating war. Only this time, Simon does not go into danger alone. He and Suzanne will face deadly peril together, and pray that love will carry them through . . .

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Putney continues to offer a fascinating historical perspective combined with a tender love story that slowly moves from friendship to desire to love, making this an excellent addition to any collection.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Contrasts harsh trauma with sweet domesticity…Putney’s dramatic historical is filled with scintillating romance and tense danger.” Publishers Weekly
“A superb performance by narrator Beverley A. Crick makes…delightful listening. Her voice is lovely, and her ability to slip between British and French accents and classes is impressive..Crick allows their blossoming romance to unfold slowly amid the turmoil of Napoleon’s escape from Elba and return to power. She handles subplots, dangerous liaisons, history, and backstory with enthusiasm.” AudioFile
