Goodreads

Two morally compromised souls wage a battle of wits—and seduction—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 trusted—nor is Gabrielle’s body when he’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, he’s working toward an altogether different objective: unmasking the Scarlet Pimpernel. If Ramsey fails, his blackmailer will ruin him. But when Ramsey’s confronted with the carnage of the Reign of Terror, he seeks refuge in Gabrielle’s heated embrace. Now he faces a terrible choice: betray the woman who’s stolen his heart—or risk losing everything.

This standalone novel includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

Read for Review (Publisher)

This is a wonderfully complex, compelling book that will keep you up reading it. I will admit that I have always liked the Scarlet Pimpernel story so I enjoyed his appearance in this book. This story contains a wonderful romance, danger, blackmail and accurate history.
 
Lady Gabrielle McCullough has become a thief to pay her late husband’s debts to some unsavory creditors. Ramsey Barnes, Earl of Sedgwick, is living a lie and will do anything to protect his secret. Gabrielle’s late husband was Ramsey’s friend so they are well acquainted.
 
While attending a ball, Gabrielle is tricked into entering a room and meets, in darkness, a man she believes to be the Scarlet Pimpernel. He wants her for a mission to rescue a mother and child from Paris. Meanwhile, the woman who knows Ramsey’s secret is blackmailing him to discover the Scarlet Pimpernel’s secret. Meeting each other on the ship to France, he insists they travel to Paris together.
 
Paris is where the story really happens and it is too good for me to spoil. I highly recommend this book. Thanks to Shana Galen and the publisher for the ARC. No one has asked me to write a favorable review, but I loved it!
