Genre: Historical Romance
Europe, 1813. The world watches and waits for Napolean's next move, but the Roth family have a large stake in the game. As British spies, they move through political circles ferreting out information.
It is by a very strange twist of fate that Elizabeth DeQuincy, fleeing her uncle's home in Vienna and dressed as a boy, ends up being rescued by one of the Roth family's operatives, Michael Sommers.
Elizabeth is a natural at undercover work, and it is months until Michael discovers her true identity. In the meantime, she has made herself indispensable to their work. Aside from that, Elizabeth is just the kind of woman Michael could easily love, and she has already fallen for him.
The tightly woven plot incorporates many fascinating historical events and personages (Metternich plays a key role), which add to the danger and suspense of a tale of spies, betrayal and war.
Nita Abrams knows her time period and has the talents to perfectly blend
