This is a well-written work of romantic historical fiction by noted author Evelyn Anthony, who had a number of her books adapted to film. It tells a love story, set amidst the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars. The story begins in the early part of the nineteenth century, just when Napoleon is set to invade Russia. Poland is cautiously allied with Napoleon Bonaparte, then Emperor of France, hoping that if the French prove victorious over the Russians, the French would unify a partitioned Poland and grant it independence.

Wary of their ally's intentions, the Polish oligarchy decides to spy on the French to ascertain their real intentions in terms of Poland's future, should the French prove victorious over the troops of the Russian Czar. To this end, they decide to set upon a path of seduction as the likeliest means to an end. Selecting the exquisitely beautiful Valentina Grunowski, married to the ambitious and evil Count Theodore Grunowski, one of the most influential men in Poland, the plan is set in motion.

An initially resistant Valentina is soon subdued and brought to heel by her abusive husband. It is also made clear to Valentina that if she does not comply, her Russian half-sister, the Princess Alexandra Suvaroff, would be arrested and charged with treason. Valentina's mission is to seduce Marshal Joachim Murat, one of Napoleon's most trusted soldiers and confidants, in order to discover the true intentions of the French towards Poland.

The nefarious plan of the Polish, however, is intercepted by the handsome Colonel De Chavel, the head of the French Secret Police, and, once Valentina's unwilling participation in the scheme becomes clear, both she and her sister are placed under the protection of the French. The meeting between Valentina and Colonel De Chavel, however, would set in motion the beginnings of a love affair that would change their lives forever.

Set amidst the ravages of war, this is a scintillating love story. Those who like romantic historical fiction will find much to enjoy in this book.

The book includes historical fiction about Napoleon's unsuccessful attack into Russia in 1812. There is a love that happens, and there is a happy ending, but I didn't feel good while reading it. It was somewhat tedious reading. It was written in 1965, and the writing style felt dated. I skimmed several parts, especially about military movements and politics. I wanted it to be over.

CAUTION SPOILER: My favorite character was the sister of Valentina, a supporting character. She was strong, independent and fun to read about. However the ending for her was sad. I don't like sad endings. I didn't like Valentina's decisions. I was annoyed with her stupidity of leaving her safe house to "get news" of De Chavel (the man she loved). She gets arrested and nearly killed, which she should have known about.

Sexual language: none. Number of sex scenes: four. Setting: Poland and Russia around 1812. Copyright: 1965. Genre: romantic historical fiction.
