Synopsis

London barrister Jason Jonquil has spent his entire life working to establish his identity as a gentleman, a man of refinement like his father and brothers. But when fiery Spanish beauty Mariposa Thornton walks into his office, he finds himself losing his grasp on his dignified character. The woman is infuriating, pushing him to the limit of his legendary patience. However London barrister Jason Jonquil has spent his entire life working to establish his identity as a gentleman, a man of refinement like his father and brothers. But when fiery Spanish beauty Mariposa Thornton walks into his office, he finds himself losing his grasp on his dignified character. The woman is infuriating, pushing him to the limit of his legendary patience. However, her case seems simple enough—a small matter of inheritance. Or so he believes.

Once a well-born lady, Mariposa fought to survive the brutalities of Napoleon’s war on Spain. She braved horrific perils and undertook dangerous missions on behalf of those fighting against the invading French army. But her greatest battle still lies ahead: after being separated from her family, Mariposa sets in motion a plan to reunite with her loved ones in England. To avoid drawing the attention of the French, Mariposa dons a carefully crafted persona to conceal her true purpose. As Jason and Mariposa are drawn together by the case, they come to know the people beneath the masks they both wear.

When the truth of Mariposa’s quest is revealed, the couple is pulled into a mystery that will test the limits of their courage—and expose the true desire of their hearts. (less)

MY REVIEW:

Very seldom do I do more than smile at a humorous novel, but this was hilarious in pat and heart-wrenching in other parts. Although somewhat predictable, it will totally captivate the reader’s interest, from the first page until the last page!

The setting is during the time of Napoleon’s tirade. A woman and her grandmother has escaped the horrors in Spain to England where they were to meet the rest of the family should they become separated. Her father and brother is dead. Her mother and younger brother are missing. Mariposa must find them!

She befriended one of the Jonquil brothers who was injured during the fighting. He in turn helped her. Now, the only one she feels she can approach for help is Jason Jonquil, the Barrister. But how should she approach him to get his help?

This is the beginning of an emotional roller coaster in Mariposa’s seemingly hapless quest.

The writing is outstanding, the characters endearing, the scenes easily visualized and the adventures are never-ending. The Book Cover and Title are very effective and depicts the story well.

This is the first of this series I have read, and I will definitely read the other three!

This earns a Five Stars rating!
