First words
The large berline and the smaller travelling-coach climbed the road out of Lausanne at a good pace, for the horses were fresh after their two-day rest, and the broad pastures of the Freiburge, bright with the flowers of early summer, soon opened out on either side, with a pleasant view of the Jura beyond.

Book description
back cover blurb - Mary Burns is travelling through Europe with her friends when war resumes between Britain and France in 1803 and Napoleon orders the arrest of all British subjects on French territory. Their fate is to be decided by Captain Armand Dufour, who has bitter personal reasons for taking vengeance on the English. He offers safe passes for the whole party – on condition that Mary remains behind as his wife. With internment as the alternative, what choice has she? Yet cold, sarcastic and disfigured as he is, she finds herself drawn to the enigmatic Captain. If her situation really is so terrible why does she fail to take advantage of the opportunities to escape?
