BETRAY ME NOT
Genre: Historical Romance
As a spy for Colbert, the finance minister, Armand Saint-Sylvestre is to observe and obtain information about Nicholas Fouquet, the superintendent
But when Armand is seduced by fervent kisses from a blue-eyed, copper-haired seductress, he finds himself in a compromising situation resulting in marriage to Miss Madeleine de Pellison. Armand is unaware that Madeline is being forced to spy on him by Fouquet.
As the two become enmeshed in Fouquets machinations they must put aside each others subterfuge and rely on their love and trust in one another.
Though Ms. Hauf gives a nice overview of the period, a bit of a meandering plot and a slow pace drags the story down. SENSUAL
