This week my pick is…………….
Okay to be honest my pick isn’t a new release it’s been released before but years ago and now it is being re-released and to me that counts.
Genre: Regency Romance
Release Date: February 3, 2015
Summery from Goodreads:
From the New York Times bestselling author of the Survivor’s Club novels comes “an epic love story” (Publishers Weekly) of intrigue and deception and the promises that can break a heart.…
“I will love you all my life and even beyond that.”
Even at fifteen, Jeanne, the privileged daughter of a royalist émigré, knew what she liked: Englishman Robert Blake, bastard son of a marquess. Yet his questionable birth rendered him forbidden. Forced to part, they were still young enough to believe in tomorrow. But as time passed, that brief ephemeral flirtation at Haddington Hall faded into memory.
Eleven years later in Portugal, during the Peninsular Wars, they meet again, both of them spies, and destined to be working on opposing sides. He is now a captain with the British army. She is the widowed Marquesa das Minas—sometimes going by the name Joana da Fonte. However for only one of them does the flicker of recognition still burn.
Amid the fury of war and in the shadow of secrets, passion flares once again. But for Joana and Robert, each entrusted to a dangerous mission that demands deception, falling in love could be the most dangerous risk of all.
Why I am Excited
I love Regency Romance. I love anything in this time period and I am so excited to learn more about the Peninsular Wars. I have a soft spot for people who fell in love years ago and were forced to part and meet again years later. It is so romantic. I haven’t read many novels were the hero or heroine were spies let along both of them.
What is your pick this week?
