This Sunday, I’m placing the spotlight on Shana Galen’s TRAITOR IN HER ARMS, book one of The Scarlet Chronicles. Inspired by The Scarlet Pimpernel, written in 1905 by Emma Orczy, TRAITOR IN HER ARMS is a harrowing narrative wrought with danger set during France’s Reign of Terror. Rich with heart-thumping suspense, this nail-biter will keep you guessing right to its dramatic conclusion. I feel fortunate to have received an advanced copy of this novel from the publisher. Happy Reading!
Lady Gabrielle McCullough needed a way to pay off her late husband’s gambling debts. After her housekeeper teaches her a thing or two of thievery, she is recruited by the Scarlet Pimpernel to travel to France to free an innocent woman and her child from Madame Guillotine. The only catch is she’ll have to steal a priceless Royal gem, to do so.
Lord Ramsey Sedgwick is a man of mystery. To free himself from a villain’s evil clutches, he agrees to travel to France on a mission to expose the Scarlet Pimpernel in exchange for the documentation that exposes his web of lies. But when he uncovers Gabrielle’s mission, he is forced with an unbearable decision-betray the woman he loves or save his own name.
