When the Armistice between France and England came to an end in 1803, Napoleon interned ten thousand British tourists who were in France at that time. Most of these tourists had committed no crime and had simply been travelling when captured. Many, to save being arrested went into hiding, among them the widow and daughter of Sir Edward Waltham, who had died that winter. A When the Armistice between France and England came to an end in 1803, Napoleon interned ten thousand British tourists who were in France at that time. Most of these tourists had committed no crime and had simply been travelling when captured. Many, to save being arrested went into hiding, among them the widow and daughter of Sir Edward Waltham, who had died that winter. A year later, plunged into poverty and the seedier side of Paris life, beautiful Vernita Waltham is keeping her sick mother precariously alive on the money she obtains from making exquisitely embroidered lingerie for a famous shop that supplies Napoleon's sister, Her Imperial Highness Princess Pauline Borghese. Vernita discovers the shop is cheating and desperate to raise money for food and medicine, decides to approach the Princess directly with a negligee she has just finished, disguised as a petite bourgeoisie. Extravagant and self-obsessed, Princess Pauline is enchanted with Vernita's skills as a needlewoman and convinced that the silk and lace creations will only enhance her reputation as the most beautiful woman in Paris. She immediately determines that Vernita must move to the Palace and join the legion of servants that already pander to her vanity. From that moment on Vernita is thrust into complications with the Princess's lover, handsome Count Axel de Storvik, and the all-powerful Emperor Napoleon himself. Unsure of whom to trust in a Palace filled with secret assignations and political intrigue, Vernita soon finds herself in a position that could ruin her reputation for ever. But how long can an English lady of quality remain hidden amongst the loyal family and servants of the enemy French Emperor? Terrified of discovery and fearful of the future, Vernita dreams of escape and a return to her home in England only to find an ally, waiting like a guiding star, in the most unlikely of places.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Very boring. There were so many details about Napoleon and his sister Pauline it practically took up half the book. After which the couple declare themselves in love after knowing each other for 2 days! Then it’s their flight to freedom, which could have been quite exciting, but NO, the author did a boring repetitive road trip 😕 3-stars because the details about Napoleon’s sister Pauline were interesting and I ended up googling her.

    Novel Barbara Cartland pertama yang kubaca... kesanku,,,. Not bad...yang kusuka adalah latar belakang sejarah nya yang cukup kental di masa pendudukan Napoleon Bonaparte di hampir seluruh wilayah Eropa. Kisah cinta yang begitu cepat menurutku karena sang tokoh utama baru berkenalan beberapa jam dengan Lord Axel dan langsung memutuskan jatuh cinta dan tak bisa hidup tanpanya. Hmmm mungkin ini namanya cinta buta kali ya.... :) Tapi aku terkesan banget sama Sang Pengarang... karena ia menerbitkan leb Novel Barbara Cartland pertama yang kubaca... kesanku,,,.

    Our lives can change in an instance. One moment safe and secure and the next in fear and insecure. This was the life of Venita. Interesting reading.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Saya membaca terjemahannya dan menurut saya bahasanya mudah dipahami. Novel ini mengambil latar tempat di Prancis. Mengisahkan seorang wanita berdarah Inggris yang menjalin hubungan dengan seorang mata-mata Inggris. Pria tersebut ingin membawa wanita tersebut kembali ke Inggris.
