The Uncompromising Lord Flint (The King's Elite #2)The Uncompromising Lord Flint by Virginia Heath

4.5 stars

The Uncompromising Lord Flint is a Regency romance and is part of The King’s Elite series. It features nineteenth century espionage and smuggling.

A dangerous and highly organised gang of smugglers are believed to be supporters of Napoleon. They are raising arms and funds to restore him to leadership. Lord Peter Flint and his associates have been on the trail of this notorious gang, hoping to break them, but they’ve had few leads.

Some recently decoded letters, written by Lady Jessamine Fane (Jess), have pointed to the Comte de Saint Aubin de Scellon, a rich and influential supporter of Napoleon. Flint believes Jess is the link between France and England, and swiftly moves to capture her.

He hopes that Jess’s arrest, and possible trial for high treason, will flush out other members of the English peerage. But he’s not prepared for his growing suspicions that Jess may be a victim, rather than the traitor they first thought. With Jess now in grave danger, Flint takes her to his family castle in Cornwall for protection.

This mini-series is a spin-off from the Wild Warriners books. Ideally I would recommend reading them all in order, but if the story appeals and you have limited time, then I suggest starting with book one of the King’s Elite tales – The Mysterious Lord Millcroft. I’m a fan of Ms Heath’s style, the narrative is always fresh which can be hard in a popular genre. I do recommend this for anyone who enjoys historical romance.
