L’AMOUR ... OR LA MORT?

While on a sensitive mission for her husband, the Inspector General, lovely Victoire Vernet inadvertantly stumbles upon a traitorous cabal.

Not everyone in France revels in the triumphs of her adored hero, Napoleon Bonaparte.

Rumors that the great leader is to be formally crowned Emperor have incensed many powerful aristocrats, malcontents, and foreign intriguers who plot in secret to bring down the coronation ... and bring death to any man—or woman—who becomes aware of their seditious schemes.

If her enemies have their way, Victoire’s life won’t be worth a sou—but la belle dame Vernet is undaunted by their threats. She possesses the steely courage of Jeanne d’Arc, and the exceptional cunning necessary to outwit and defeat the fiendish conspiracy that could tear her nation apart.

“That will do, she said, as she flung the curtain back. The pistol was steady in her hand. She blinked against the darkness, able to make out little more than a vague shape in the open door of the armoire.

The man swore as he swung around and fired ...
