It all began so well. When Tristan Chevalier joined the
French revolutionaries to fight for brotherhood, equality,
and liberty, he was full of hopes and dreams of what the
revolution could accomplish. But after several years of
serving as the bloodthirsty Robespierreâ€™s second, Tristan is
having doubts. When Tristan tries to halt Robespierreâ€™s
Reign of Terror, he inadvertently steps into a trap laid by
the League of the Scarlet Pimpernel and orchestrated by the
lovely Alexandra Martin. Tristan is no oneâ€™s pawn, but he
thinks by playing along, he might be able to give his
superiors information leading to the capture of the League.
He could end the Pimpernelâ€™s antics once and for all.
Thereâ€™s just one problemâ€”no matter how much Tristan despises
Alexandra, he canâ€™t quite stop wanting her.
She has a cause.
Alexandra Martin is an Englishwoman whoâ€™s has been playing
the part of a French actress for years. Itâ€™s a clever cover
for her real role as a member of the League of the Scarlet
Pimpernel. Alex usually works in the background, but when
she manages to snare one of the most important men in
Robespierreâ€™s government, sheâ€™s risking it all. So begins a
harrowing adventure where Alexâ€™s most vile enemy must become
her most trusted ally. The fate of a young prince hangs in
the balance as two clashing rebels discover enemies
sometimes make the best lovers.
