Description

January 1813—the British army is preparing to cross the Pyrenees and advance against Napoleon's army. Only one thing stands in the way—funds. It will take two people masquerading as lovers to carry out a dangerous plan…

Despite inheriting the traveling Cirque Equestre—France's proudest equestrian tradition—Gabrielle Rochon has no loyalty to the emperor who destroyed her family's way of life. Independent and headstrong, she pledges to help the British army, knowing her late father would have done the same. But her mission to smuggle gold across France within the cirque to the Duke of Wellington's headquarters in Spain is one the British won't let her do alone.

Colonel Leo Branford—an arrogant, striking foreigner—is ordered to play the part of her husband so that he may escort the gold without arousing enemy suspicions.

While Gabrielle is annoyed that she must publicly bow to his every whim, the danger of the mission binds them in a disturbingly intimate way. With French troops precariously close to uncovering their charade, it is imperative that neither of them forget their purpose…or themselves.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 01, 2004 – An arrogant aristocrat learns what it's like to live with a traveling circus--and the circus's strikingly beautiful equestrian--in Wolf's newest romance (after High Meadow), which takes place during the Napoleonic wars. Headstrong Gabrielle Robichon, leader of the Cirque Equestre, has agreed to help the English transport a vast amount of gold, desperately needed by Wellington, across France to Spain. But she's less than thrilled to learn that the English want handsome Col. Leo Standish, the earl of Bradford, to pose as her husband and accompany her. Tension simmers between Leo, who considers the assignment beneath him, and the fiercely independent Gabrielle, but when personal enmities erupt within the little circus family and French surveillance intensifies, the two are forced to play their roles with greater enthusiasm. Naturally, their playacting gives way to real passion, but their relationship too often takes a backseat to the goings-on within the troupe. Wolf has obviously done her research on circuses and Lipizzan horses, but her expository writing style and inclusion of unnecessary detail dampens the story's intensity. Although this is far from Wolf's best effort, it is a serviceable romance with a refreshing setting and well-drawn protagonists.
