Description: In 1789 General Isaac Fairchild travels across the Channel on a very special assignment. After surviving the American Revolution, he is now gathering information on life at King Louis XVI’s court. But he must also locate a countess and her grown daughter and escort them back to England before revolution explodes in France. He knows danger is in the task set before him, but when he meets the beautiful Julienne, a new peril beckons him deeper into the intrigue of Versailles.
If I had read this as a standalone book, I probably would not have enjoyed it. It is very heavy on the romance and not a lot of substance to back it up, unless you have read Ring of Secrets.
I felt sorry for Isaac Fairchild in Ring of Secrets. He was such a nice guy and honorable, but he didn’t have a happy ending in the book. This short story gives him a happy ending and is the bridge between the Ring of Secrets and Whispers from the Shadows.
This story has a fairy tale feel to it. Isaac meets Julienne at a ball and, before he finds out her name, they are separated again. This story is a light read full of pretty costumes, gorgeous settings, and romance, perfect for a fairy tale lover, or someone who wants a light read.
I highly recommend this novella for anyone who has read Ring of Secrets and is planning on reading Whispers from the Shadows.
