Quotes

'The quality of the story in itself is sufficient to carry this novel, but excellent writing and characterization pushes it up several notches – with special mention for Hester: a fizzing-with-life, believable and resourceful heroine if ever there was one'

Daily Mail

'Lush, dark, utterly real and, above all, achingly romantic'

Ruth Ware

'A wonderfully thrilling, sweeping, romantic historical adventure that keeps you gripped until the last page'

Rowan Coleman

'A heart-stopping, explosive romp through what might so easily have been, delightfully packed with desperate deeds and derring-do. More, please'

Holly Hepburn

'Badly behaved aristocrats, gloriously opinionated women and danger at every turn'

i newspaper

'Thrilling ... Rugged scenery combined with even more rugged leading men and feisty leading ladies makes this a book that one can easily compare to <i>Poldark</i> ... The intensity of the plot is only amplified by quite how much she makes you care about the characters it revolves around'

The Bookbag

'Witty, exciting and heartfelt, the book had me hooked'

Roaring Bookworm

'An historical novel at its best ... With fantastic characters like the strong heroine Hester and the charismatic Crow the author doesn't disappoint ... You cannot ask for more in a novel of this genre. 5*'

Rachel Bustin

'Readers will follow the story with bated breath to see what will happen next, as we cross over to various characters and their stories'

Our First Year Here

'A fascinating story with plenty of unexpected events, gripping scenes, treachery, bloody battles and political intrigues ... A fantastic compelling story'

With Love for Books

'With a complex plot, high stakes and rip rolling adventure - as well as Hester, a fantastic main character - I actually couldn't put this down'

Roaring Bookworm

'Those who like their action on the swashbuckling side will enjoy this fabulous debut set in a world in which Napoleon won the Battle of Waterloo. A cross between Georgette Heyer, Dorothy Dunnett and Poldark'

i newspaper

'A swashbuckling, sparkling world of a novel, breathtakingly tender, with a mad, bad and dangerous-to-know hero'

Suzannah Dunn

'The main characters, especially Crow and Hester, are well-drawn'
