Two morally compromised souls wage a battle of witsâ€”and
seductionâ€”against the backdrop of the French Revolution in
this thrilling romance from bestselling author Shana Galen.
After her late husband leaves her in debt to some dangerous
people, Lady Gabrielle McCullough is forced to become a
thief. In the intervening years, her skills have not gone
unnoticed. After being recruited by the Scarlet Pimpernel,
the mysterious do-gooder spiriting aristocrats out of
revolutionary France, Gabrielle crosses the Channel for the
most daring mission of her life. Accompanying her is the
Earl of Sedgwick, a thief in his own right and an enticingly
masculine presence. The man is not to be trustedâ€”nor is
Gabrielleâ€™s body when heâ€™s near.
Ramsey Barnes would not say he is an honorable man. His
whole life has been based on a lie; why change now? Although
it pains him to deceive the tantalizing Gabrielle, heâ€™s
working toward an altogether different objective: unmasking
the Scarlet Pimpernel. If Ramsey fails, his blackmailer will
ruin him. But when Ramseyâ€™s confronted with the carnage of
the Reign of Terror, he seeks refuge in Gabrielleâ€™s heated
embrace. Now he faces a terrible choice: betray the woman
whoâ€™s stolen his heartâ€”or risk losing everything.
