Lady Emily goes to Constantinople with her parents for an adventure and meets a Frenchman named Lucien Chambertin. Lucien is different from the men back in London, he is not boring , predictable and not like everyone else. He is exciting, witty, smart and likes her. Lucien really likes Emily, she is also different than all the other society misses. She is intelligent, doesn't simper and giggle and can converse on subjects other than the weather and fashion. As the journey continues they go from friends to a couple in love. Their is peril, treachery, courage and most of all love in this story of two people who had to go half way around the world to find each other. I enjoyed this book and would recommend to historical romance readers.
Received an ARC for an honest review.
