Michelle Diener in her new book, “The Emperor's Conspiracy bok coverThe Emperor’s Conspiracy” published by Gallery Books takes us into the life of Charlotte Raven.

From the back cover:  From nineteenth-century London’s elegant ballrooms to its darkest slums, a spirited young woman and a nobleman investigating for the Crown unmask a plot by Napoleon to bleed England of its gold.

Chance led to Charlotte Raven’s transformation from chimney sweep to wealthy, educated noblewoman, but she still walks a delicate tightrope between two worlds, unable to turn her back on the ruthless crime lord who was once her childhood protector.

When Lord Edward Durnham is tapped to solve the mystery of England’s rapidly disappearing gold, his search leads him to the stews of London, and Charlotte becomes his intriguing guide to the city’s dark, forbidding underworld. But as her involvement brings Charlotte to the attention of men who have no qualms about who they hurt, and as Edward forges a grudging alliance with the dangerous ghosts of Charlotte’s former life, she faces a choice: to continue living in limbo, or to close the door on the past and risk her heart and her happiness on an unpredictable future.

Michelle Diener has done it again which means get ready for a nail-biting, page-turning thriller.  Ms. Diener knows how to write history.  There really was a secret smuggling operation by France to drain England’s gold.  Lord Edward Durnham is assigned to put an end to this conspiracy and he needs Charlotte to aid him.  Joining forces puts both their lives in deadly danger as they race about trying to find England’s enemies to end their threat.  “The Emperor’s Conspiracy” is well crafted suspense.  It is also a good romance as well.  Ms. Diener creates characters are so real that you care for all of them.  “The Emperor’s Conspiracy” is great fun to read.  I am so hoping that there will be more stories featuring Charlotte and Lord Edward.
