Booklist Review

Sophie Armonville, a breathtakingly beautiful 25-year-old widow and wine merchant, had always desired "a life of passion and adventure," but found them to be scarce in Bordeux circa 1776. So when her cousin Hyacinthe offers her the opportunity to enter the world of international espionage and arms smuggling, Sophie quickly abandons her staid routine. Hyacinthe arranges for her to meet Morgan Carter, an American agent working to secure freedom from the British for the New World. Attraction flares and they fall deeply in love, but there is work to be done. They must outwit their wily enemies, and struggle to stay one step ahead of them in order to preserve both their love and the independence of the newly created United States of America. King's plot moves quickly but without confusion, and brave and cunning Sophie steals the show. Her heroine is a fictional creation but, as King reveals in a surprising and fascinating afterword, she is based on a historical personage essential to the success of the American Revolution. --Deborah Rysso
