Two morally compromised souls wage a battle of wits—and seduction—against the backdrop of the French Revolution in this slow-burn romance from bestselling author Shana Galen.

After her late husband leaves her in debt to some dangerous people, Lady Gabrielle McCullough is forced to become a thief. In the intervening years, her skills have not gone unnoticed. After being recruited by the Scarlet Pimpernel, the mysterious do-gooder spiriting aristocrats out of revolutionary France, Gabrielle crosses the Channel for the most daring mission of her life. Accompanying her is the Earl of Sedgwick, a thief in his own right and an enticingly masculine presence. The man is not to be trusted—nor is Gabrielle’s body when he’s near.

Ramsey Barnes would not say he is an honorable man. His whole life has been based on a lie; why change now? Although it pains him to deceive the tantalizing Gabrielle, he’s working toward an altogether different objective: unmasking the Scarlet Pimpernel. If Ramsey fails, his blackmailer will ruin him. But when Ramsey’s confronted with the carnage of the Reign of Terror, he seeks refuge in Gabrielle’s heated embrace. Now he faces a terrible choice: betray the woman who’s stolen his heart—or risk losing everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I received this ARC from Netgalley and voluntarily chose to write a review. Wow! This was unputdownable! I enjoyed every minute of it. I was hooked from the very first page and had it not been for work, I would have finished it in one sitting. Ironically, I abhor French history. I hated memorizing all the events and dates in university and it has traumatized me to this day. But Shana Galen did a wonderful job with the historical background. Her descriptions were compelling and I felt transported back to that frightful period in France. Galen's depiction of Paris and its people was very authentic and reminded me of French classics. For instance, the description of La Seine called to mind the poem "Nocturne Parisien" by Paul Verlaine. It is clear that the author did her research thoroughly. She even included some very interesting facts in there that surprised me. If only my professors had taught us about cemetery balls and death masks! The hero and heroine are both very flawed characters, but one cannot help but root for them. Both Gabrielle and Ramsey are thieves and they each have their reason for stealing. Gabrielle and Ramsey find themselves in France during the Reign of Terror because they each have a different mission to accomplish. They start relying on each other, but the heroine does not fully trust the hero. I won't to go into much detail because I don't want to spoil the fun. My only complaint was that the book ended too quickly! I was sucked into the story and could not put it down. Traitor in Her Arms had everything you could ask for: romance, suspense and adventure. I was there with Gabrielle and Ramsey every step of the way. The plot was compelling and the characters were interesting. The relationship and character development was done exceptionally well. I felt a lot for both Gabrielle and Ramsey. Some readers complained that the romance was secondary, but it did not feel that way to me. I think there was a good balance of plot and romance. Ramsey, against all his will, was a romantic hero, supporting Gabrielle and saving her from the dangers of Revolutionary Paris. If that is not romantic, I don't know what is.
