Series: The Scarlet Chronicles #1Publication Date: August 22, 2017Galen’s captivating descriptions paint a picture of Paris during the French Revolution that just sucks you right into the time and place. Breath coming fast, heart pounding, blood racing – you won’t be able to put it down once you start reading. I’d like to address one thing right from the start. I have read several reviews that complained that the romance wasn’t front and center in this book. I sort of thought so too [...]

3.5 stars/ C+Traitor in Her Arms, the first book in Shana Galen’s new Scarlet Chronicles series, takes place in Revolutionary France and features two individuals who are sent to Paris to undertake two very different and dangerous missions in order to fulfil debts owed to a pair of less than scrupulous characters back in England. A novel set in France at a momentous time in history featuring spies, feats of derring-do, a central couple who are keeping secrets and the Scarlet Pimpernel himself s [...]

I loved this story so much I was doubly glad that it was a long one because I could enjoy it for more reading hours. Two unlikely people, two thieves, are nonetheless drawn to each other despite their dire circumstances in life. From their first meeting at a ball where they are both attempting to steal jewelry, Ramsey and Gabrielle “play with fire” while dodging creditors and cutthroats in England and Reign of Terror gendarmes in Paris during their daring-do to rescue a couple of citizens fr [...]

This is a wonderfully complex, compelling book that will keep you up reading it. I will admit that I have always liked the Scarlet Pimpernel story so I enjoyed his appearance in this book. This story contains a wonderful romance, danger, blackmail and accurate history. Lady Gabrielle McCullough has become a thief to pay her late husband’s debts to some unsavory creditors. Ramsey Barnes, Earl of Sedgwick, is living a lie and will do anything to protect his secret. Gabrielle’s late husband was [...]

PRE-RELEASE REVIEW - Publication Date: 22 August 2017I really enjoyed this first book in Shana Galen’s new The Scarlett Chronicles series. Set during the French Revolution, it combines a well-written, action-packed story, with intriguing, flawed characters and a passionate romance. I have always loved the idea that the Scarlet Pimpernel actually existed and the fact that Ms. Galen uses that premise in this new series, only enhanced my enjoyment of this book.Gabrielle is not a thief by choice b [...]

In Shana Galen’s latest book Traitor in Her Arms the legendary Scarlett Pimpernel and his mission to save French nobles during the Revolution is the catalyst to many events in the story. I was surprised how little we see of the man himself but he still plays a very important role. Two secret quests, one to save an innocent woman’s life and the other to learn the Pimpernel’s true identity bring heroine and hero together under the best and worst of circumstances.Lady Gabrielle McCullough has [...]

The first book in the new Scarlet Chronicles Series is an action packed adventure with heart stopping peril, steamy sex, and a truly wonderful love story. What would you have done if the Scarlet Pimpernel contacted you and asked you to go France during the revolution and steal a valuable piece of jewelry to bribe the warden to free a mother and her child? Gabrielle has had to learn how to survive to keep a roof over her head since her husband died and left her buried in debt. She is strong, stub [...]

Fair warning; if a Regency novel also includes stories about the legendary Scarlet Pimpernel, I'm probably going to squee over it. If it's also written by Shana Galen, one of the finest writers in the Regency genre today, it's pretty much a sure-fire winner.So when I saw Traitor In Her Arms available for review on NetGalley, I pounced to click and then crossed my fingers to be selected. I was not disappointed. This is a fabulous Regency romp with plenty of drama and deeper themes underlying the [...]

Got from NetGallery, for honest review.I loved the story. I was pulled in and couldn't stop reading. The story made me feel like I was there watching the characters show the story. Loved the chemistry Ramsey and Gabrielle had together. The story it self was well written and had a nice steady pace to it. Also find myself wanting to read more from the author. Thank you for letting me read your story.

Wow! This was an edge of my seat read unlike any other historical romantic suspense I've read! Just when I thought everyone was safe, a new twist. But even with all the suspense the romance was not lost and in fact was absolutely wonderful and compelling. I cannot wait until the next in the series releases!

When I read Historical Romance, I have things I MUST have and Shana Galen provides my prerequisites and then some. I loved this book and can't wait to read it again. *Received a copy for my honest review.*

First book in a new series by the author but just as great as any of her other series. Widowed Gabrielle has no other choice but to resort to thievery to pay off her late husband’s gambling debts or she will have to face a fate much worse than jail. It’s not what she would have wanted to do with her life but at the time there was not much choice left for her. Lord Ramsey never thought Gabrielle would become the remarkable thief she seems to be, but then again they hadn’t talked to each oth [...]

"Traitor in her Arms" is more suspense and intrigue than a straight romance. Usually the romance takes center-stage while the setting is secondary. Not so in this book. Gabrielle McCullough has been left in debt by her deceased gambling husband and is forced to thievery to raise cash. Ramsey Barnes has a secret that he will do anything to keep, including stealing a priceless necklace. When these two cross paths trying to steal the same item, their long-ago passion for each other sparks again. Wh [...]

There are times when I wonder at my preferences in books. Visually the sight of blood and gore makes me queasy. I am not particularly fond of gore-filled movies, and often have to look away if it gets too much. Considering my preferences in these areas of life, why do I relish the romances set against a raw, gore-filled background? I honestly don't know, but I do. Historical romance stories set to the back drop of the French Revolution, the terror portion, have been some of my most enjoyable rea [...]

Traitor in Her Arms is the first book in The Scarlet Chronicles series by Shana Galen.Lady Gabrielle McCullough is a widow and her late husband has left her up to her ears in debt. His creditors are hounding her, one in particular who has threatened that if she doesn't pay up, he'll kidnap her sell her to a brothel. Her only option of repaying her debts is to become a thief, selling things she steals from the wealthy people whose balls she attends. She's very good at what she does, so much so th [...]

Originally reviewed for buriedunderromance Traitor in Her Arms, the first novel in the new Scarlet Chronicles series by best-selling author Shana Galen, is a delightful romp through London and Paris in search of the elusive Scarlet Pimpernel of historical infamy. Did he really exist? I’ll let you decide after reading this intriguing look into the French Revolution. Widow Lady Gabrielle McCullough has to resort to thievery to pay the enormous debts left to her by her late husband. With one evil [...]

Paris in the revolution!The opening scenes are gritty and vivid, laced with a certain amount of gallows humour. Lady Gabrielle McCullough is in a tumbrel in Paris rumbling over cobblestones, having had her hair slashed off in readiness to meet Madame la Guillotine, and surrounded by crowds screaming for yet more beheadings. Yes! This new series has us smack in the middle of Paris at the time of the French Revolution. The scenes of gore and crowds howling for blood, the sansculotte, Robespierre, [...]

TRAITOR IN HER ARMS is Shana Galen’s masterpiece! Little did they know they would meet again when trying to steal a precious necklace. When her died while saddling her with his gambling debts, Lady Gabrielle McCullough had no choice but to become a thief or she would have to do whatever was needed to stay alive. When trying to get her hands on a valuable piece of jewelry, she comes face to face with the man she thought at one time would be her husband, but he never asked: Lord Ramsey Sedgwick, [...]

*I received a copy from the author via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I love a book that shows a different side of things and this is one of them. There are secrets and scandals surrounding both of them, but their hearts are in the right place with all of it. I loved that they have known each other for a long time, but thought they weren't supposed to be together for different reasons. I was so sucked in by the mystery of the Scarlet Pimpernel and how he brought them together whil [...]

If the above synopses doesn’t hook you into this story, here’s what I thought of it.This is one of those stories that will stay with you well after you’ve read it and the reason for it are the complex characters that will touch your heart.Shana Galen is one of those authors that can plot a story so well that you’ll be on the edge of your seat as you read. The pace, action and humor helps the dark moments of the story and makes it more real.As I said it before, this is not my first time r [...]

This story was so captivating set in the back drop of the French Revolution. Gabrielle must try and stave off creditors by deciding to elude them by going to France and help save people from the blade. She is summoned to this task by none other than the Scarlet Pimpernel. Lord Sedgewick is drawn into this journey with secrets of his own that may cost him more than he bargained. The plot was fast paced with intrigue and suspense. These two people are inexplicably drawn to each other, but can't se [...]

This story starts so very darkly I wasn't sure where it would take me, but oh what a ride! The author keeps you on tenterhooks throughout the story with few respites. You get the impression that nothing more can happen and then it does. This book gives a realistic look at the Reign of Terror with all the horror, desperation, despair, hunger, blood, gore, filth and odors there must have been. It also gives the reader an intriguing look into the lives of those few heroes and heroines that put thei [...]

Shana Galen never disappoints so I am always happy to read a new book from her. The story of Lady Gabrielle McCullough and the Earl of Sedgwick interwoven with the drama of the French Revolution and the Scarlet Pimpernel took me on a wild ride through that period in history. I learned so much about what was happening during that time. It was shocking but gripping to read what people lived through and I was left in suspense as to how the story would unfold. I look forward to more books in The Sca [...]

First I want to say shana galen books are amazing and I will always preorder here books. I love Gabrielle, she was so brave to do what she did in the book. Sorry no spoilers. I can't wait for the sequel.

I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads 4 Stars. I'm a sucker for Historical Romance, but what I enjoy the most is when an author writes outside of what is the norm for the genre. When a heroine has an unconventional career/backstory, versus being on the marriage mart, awaiting the perfect match, I always end up reading feverishly. As the widow of a gambler husband, Gabrielle struggles to survive as creditors want her to pay the debt with her flesh. She ends up becomi [...]

This is a well written, passionate, sometimes difficult to read story set during the Paris Reign of Terror of the French Revolution. It's an interesting take on the Scarlet Pimpernel, the "Robin Hood" of rescuing nobility out of Paris from under the judgment of the guillotine. Viscountess Gabrielle McCullough, widow of Ramsey's best friend George, and Lord Ramsey Barnes, Earl of Sedgwick, meet once again in the most unexpected place, the bedroom of a duchess during a ball. Both thieves after the [...]

Even though I’d read only one of Galen’s books, Sapphires are an Earl’s Best Friend, I knew I was in for a treat.I know a book has been successful in teaching me something when I highlight certain terms and later look them up. Author Shana Galen has done her homework about the Reign of Terror. She paints an accurate and bleak picture of the life of its nobility, or perhaps better said, the destruction of it.The guillotine was a despicable killing machine. In Paris alone, it is estimated be [...]

Traitor in Her Arms by Shana Galen is a jewel thief book. I didn't realize that the entire book would be surrounded by this plot. I much prefer a romance book to place the romance first and other plot objectives secondary and therefore this book was just not for me, but luckily many readers prefer the opposite and if you are one of those, then you'll absolutely love this story. I wanted to like it more than I did. Thanks to Netgalley and Loveswept for the ARC in exchange for a honest review.

Previously having read and enjoyed a Regency historical by Galen, I was looking forward to this one, especially when I noticed that it was set during the French Revolution. I was not disappointed, but this was not the light-hearted romp that I am accustomed to in historical romance.The Story-After her husband's death, Gabrielle is left with all of his gambling debt and no way to pay it back. She has taken to stealing expensive artifacts from the rich in order to keep her head above water, but wh [...]

Lady Gabrielle McCullough's husband racked up lots of debt and then died, leaving Gabrielle to find a way to pay it off. She learns how to pick locks and steals from the nobility to gradually pay off what is now her debt. Ramsey Barnes, the Earl of Sedgwick, also is good at picking locks and thievery. He has a Secret and is being blackmailed because of that Secret. I liked that this historical romance was different; lock picking hero and heroine, French Revolution, the Scarlet Pimpernel?! Both c [...]
