Publisher's Summary

A highly entertaining, wonderfully colourful story, now revealed to be written by one of our favourite historical novelists.The gilded family had been the envy and the pride of England for centuries. Never had the Lazenders seemed more powerful or more wealthy. And never had the unseen means of their destruction seemed so close…Yet the heir to the estate was absent. Toby Lazender worked for the British in Revolutionary France - where he hunted down the men who had murdered the innocent girl he loved. It was his sister, Campion, who oversaw the family's affairs at the ‘little kingdom' of Lazen Castle.But Lazen is, unknowingly, a house under siege.

Fallen Angels - among the most powerful and dangerous men in Europe - are plotting to bring revolution to England. To succeed, they need money, and the Lazender fortune can provide it. The key to the fortune is control of Campion's future. A web of deceit closes around Lazen, drawing Campion ever closer to a subtle trap that has been laid just for her. Her only hope for survival lies with the Gypsy - her brother's broodingly aloof horse-master - a man whose loyalties are at best uncertain.

Fallen Angels is a powerful blend of passion, adventure and intrigue, played out in the shadow of the guillotine and the sunlit splendour of an English estate. It is a worthy successor to A Crowning Mercy, the first chronicle of the Lazender family.

    "Sadly, only one up from Mills and Boon."

    Don't read this if you are a Cornwell fan.
    Overlong, repetitive, tedious descriptions, needed a really good edit. Love story set in this historical context simply not credible: grafting 21 st century attitudes onto 18th century life. Should have been half the length.
    You would have thought this was written by an amateur.

    Reading generally very good but some dreadful lapses of prononciation, gun-whales, mis-happen instead of misshapen, didn't even make sense in the context...a mishappen sack?! And others ... 'opinned ' instead of opined. What happened to the audio editor?
    Why did we continue to listen? All we had on 15 hour car journey!
