About the book:
This bonus romantic novella is set in the intervening years between Ring of Secrets and Whispers from the Shadows by Roseanna M. White. 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.
Wow! Fairchild's Lady has got to be one of the better novellas I've read. Usually they seem too short and the story kind of rushed, but not this one. I loved it! :)
After being introduced to Fairchild in Ring of Secrets, I was really excited to read this story and see what happens next in his life. I really liked his character and also Julienne's.
Even though Fairchild's Lady was fairly short, there was still a good story with some romance and suspense/danger. I was also kind of surprised by some things - which was great. :)
Overall, I loved Fairchild's Lady and definitely recommend it. I think you'll probably want to read Ring of Secrets first, but, even if you don't, I think you'd still be able to enjoy this one. I can't wait to read Whispers from the Shadows.
