Synopsis of book»

The dashing Captain Daniel Rawson - spy, linguist, duellist, ladies' man and career soldier - can charm a lady as well as he can parry a sword. And whether it is extracting information from the wife of a French general or leading his soldiers in a Forlorn Hope, Rawson proves himself invaluable to John Churchill, the Duke of Marlborough, and the Confederate forces as they head towards the ferocious battle of Blenheim.

But on their march across Europe, Rawson discovers he has two very different camps of pursuers. The beautiful Abigail Piper, with whom Rawson enjoyed a brief flirtation whilst in London, is determined to get her man. A soldier couldn't dare hope for a lovelier distraction, but the battlefield is no place for a lady.  

Also hot on Rawson's heels are the murderous servants of the General Salignac, the latest man Daniel cuckolded. Their instructions are simple - kill Rawson and bring back proof. A simple order, but have they underestimated their target?
