Twelve years after fleeing their burning chateau, Julien Harcourt, Duc de Valère, searches for his lost twin brothers. His frequent travels between England and France at a time when the exiled Napoleon is reported to be marshalling his troops raises the suspicions of English authorities who set secret operative Sarah Smith on his trail. A risky game of cat and mouse leads the two from the ballrooms of London to the prisons of Paris and into a fragile love that neither dares to hope for.

The first in a trilogy of three brothers struggling to reconnect and restore their noble heritage in the aftermath of the French Revolution, each losing his heart along the way.

MY THOUGHTS:

 THE MAKING OF A DUCHESS by Shana Galen is a delightful historical romance set in 1800 England.This is in first in the Sons Of The Revolution about three brothers and the women who love them. It is well written with detail and depth. It has humor, romance, belonging, sweet sensuality, betrayal, family duty, true love and adventure.  The characters are charming, witty, strong, determined and will have your heart and capture your interst from the first page to the last. It is a fast paced page turner and will you not want to put it down. It starts in 1789 France during the French Revoluation and ends in London, England in 1801. The hero is on a mission to find the brother he and his mother throught to be died, he finds true love and more in the process. The heroine thinks she is an orphan and isdoing her duty, but so learns true love and so much more. They are both headstrong and determined. I would highly recommend  this book especially if you enjoy a bit of history, danger, adventure and true romance. This book was received for review and more info can be found at Sourcebooks.
