About the book:

Sabinne ‘Saber’ Darrieux’s father, the billionaire CEO of Frontenac Global Security has been kidnapped. His ransom is not cash in a numbered offshore account, or a briefcase of Bearer Bonds but something utterly unique, incredibly valuable, and until recently, hidden away from the world.

The kidnapper seems to know Saber very well, and knows that the next day, through her work as an elite translator she will be in the same location as the Object. She must steal the Object and deliver it to the kidnapper to ransom her father.

Adrian Steele, a British Intelligence agent has just come off of two harrowing missions. Upon returning to London for a well-earned rest, he learns that his friend and fellow agent, has been murdered in Moscow, but not before he made use of a unique Object as a mobile ‘drop site’ for the valuable intelligence he was carrying.

The drop site is traveling from Moscow to England. Steele insists on completing the mission to honor the death of his friend, Gerry Cornell.

At an ultra-chic quasi-diplomatic gathering in a mansion in Windsor, England, Saber and Steele meet and find themselves faced with a powerful, undeniable attraction. But at the moment, this compelling attraction is very inconvenient.

In reality they are at the mansion to check out the security arrangements — for their own reasons — to steal the Object, a FabergĂ© egg worth thirty million dollars. But who will get to the egg first?

Fabergé eggs are very famous for their unique surprises. Saber and Steele are about to be very surprised, indeed.

And when Saber clashes with Steele; more than sparks will explode!

Enjoyed an exotic, adventure-filled childhood, following her anthropologist father and travel writer mother to the farthest corners of the world. She later took inspiration from her Aunt Sophia Francesca and became the author of romantic adventure novels. She alternates her time between Los Angeles, and a family property located in Yorkshire England.

A priceless art treasure, a kidnapped father and revenge for a fallen comrade all take center stage in The Faberge Entanglement, a romantic suspense thriller from authors Lesley Meryn and Elle Brookes.  Exotic locations, colorful characters, and an interesting mystery quickly grabbed my attention and never let go.  Filled with plenty of action, danger and romance, this is a story romantic suspense readers will no doubt enjoy.
The authors do a good job introducing the reader to their primary characters, Sabinne ‘Saber’ Darrieux and Adrian Steele, right from the start.  While I would have liked a little more development at the start of the story, the authors jump right into the action right away, I was able to figure out what was going on quickly and was quickly drawn into the story.  I liked both Saber and Adrian right away, in fact I think I connected with Adrian a little quicker than I connected with Saber, and enjoyed how the authors gave us alternating chapters from their separate points of view.  Both intelligent, resourceful and attractive, it was easy to understand their instant attraction, even if the timing was lousy.

The secondary characters provided background, color and some made significant contributions to the story.  I thought the villain was well portrayed and developed.  The dialogue is snappy, the action was almost non-stop, and the mystery was well developed.  The story is quickly paced and takes several twists and turns.  The authors definitely keep the reader engaged and I kept wondering if Saber and Adrian would figure out a way to get the “treasure”, the information they needed, and keep their romance alive.  Especially since the stakes were so high for both of them.
Will Saber and Adrian working together enable them to locate the “Faberge Egg”? Will they be able to save Saber’s dad and get the information Adrian’s friend died for to the right party?  What will happen between Saber and Adrian once their adventure is over?   You’ll have to read The Faberge Entanglement to find out.  I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more of these author’s work.

My Rating:  3.5 out of 5 Crowns
