About this title

From Publishers Weekly:

With this romantic adventure set in Georgian England, the author of the well-received Saguinet Saga begins a new series, The Golden Chronicles. The time is 1746, after the Battle of Culloden; the rebel Jacobites are on the run, their heads heavily priced. Young Penelope Montgomery, well born but not conventionally pretty, loses her heart to Quentin Chandler, "a bit of a rascal with the ladies." Later, orphaned and living under the duress of her rapacious uncle and his vixenish wife, Penelope encounters Quentin, now a fugitive Jacobite military hero. Throwing in her lot, politically as well as emotionally, with Quentin, she embarks on a series of entertaining subterfuges, aliases and disguises that keep the plot roiling and the one-dimensional heroes and villains moving smartly through their intrigues.
