Historical Espionage Thriller

I listened and enjoyed "Spymaster's Lady" and knew I had to give this book in the series a try. After listening to both I think that "Spymaster's Lady" was better but "The Forbidden Rose" did not disappoint.

This book is written around the history of the French revolution. This intriguing story details the culture for that time period with added suspense, espionage, and romance. The author eloquently writes each character with depth by tapping into their feelings, expressions, and personality.

I am looking forward to other books by this author. If you like stories with history, suspense, espionage, intrigue, and romance give this one a try.

This is why I read Romance novels.

This is an amazing story of heroism and romance during the aftermath of the French revolution. I don't want to give a single thing about it away, and the description tells enough. I will say that there were times when I was so anxious for the characters that I had to laugh at myself. This is a book, I'd say. They aren't real. They are not actually in danger!

So romantic, so well written, and so beautifully performed it took my breath away.

Highly recommended.
