Publisher's Summary

Lady Elizabeth craved excitement and adventure. Unwilling to endure further boring Seasons, she convinces her uncle, who has lived a more adventurous life than anyone else she knew, to let her work for him. A few years later, Elizabeth was established in Tuileries Castle, a servant in Napoleon's court known as Lisette Renard.
John Phillip Trent has been working in the stables of Tuileries as Jean Pierre Bouvier for the past two years. His only English contact being Lisette Renard, a lovely blond lass, who he desired but kept at a professional arm's length.
When Lisette receives a summons to return home for Christmas, John learns that she is none other than the granddaughter of the Duke of Danby and she had named Jean Pierre as her husband. Their cover is compromised with the same letter and the two find themselves escaping the palace and France, knowing they could very well never see each other again and must face the truth of how they truly feel for the other.

Enjoyed

I feel like it needed just a tad more to the ending but I'm still happy with it.

Cute short story

I don't usually read novellas but since this was Book 1 of the series, I wanted to start at the beginning. And I've never read this author before; a good way to sample her work.

It was okay. For entertainment value it was quite good - adventure, fear, romance, family (always good for some tension.). The ending was a little quick but it WAS a short story. I look forward to the next book in the series.
