Inteesting as being set in the time of Henry VIII as so many romances are, but with a French gentleman as hero instead of an Englishman.

This was an excellent book. The basic plot is that a young French cavalier in the King's service is put in a precarious position when his family joins the Duke of Bourbon in rebellion against the King. Shellabarger's typical array of plot twists, intrigue, and danger follows. My wife says this is probably her favorite of all his books. To me, it didn't quite measure up to Prince of Foxes, but it was close.

Book description
Young Blaise de Lallière never cold-shoulders a villain's challenge and never flinches in his dedicated task -- to foil a Bourbon plot against the French crown. He rides up and down the countryside, carrying messages and giving chase to enemy agents, and almost loses his life when he falls for a comely English wench over from London to spy on King Francois.
