Review by Tiger Lily
When rumors surface that Alexandre has done away with his wife, he returns to Paris to refute the charges only to find that his faithless wife has been murdered.
Céleste de la Courte is willing to risk her life to help him prove his innocence. Will she be in time to save him from the gallows?
What do you do when the woman you married bears another man’s child? What do you do when the man you love refuses to share his feelings and forces you into marriage?
Want to know more? Then read The Ultimate Betrayal by Heide Katros.
Alexandre La Fontaine decided once his first wife bore another man’s child that he wouldn’t marry again. Celeste de la Courte never believed in love at first sight until she met Alexandre. Smitten and hurt by his abrupt departure after a scintillating dance, she decides to give him a piece of her mind. What happens next? Well, that’s the stuff dreams are made of.
I loved that Celeste never lost her sense of adventure and independence. She knew what she wanted and decided to go get it without remorse. More women should follow her example. I also loved Alexandre. Men never want to admit they have emotions and can have their feelings hurt. He showed that a man can still be sexy when he’s honest about his hopes and dreams. I also liked the trepidation between the main characters. I love the tension and Ms. Katros delivers with this novel.
If you want a historical that’s packed with individuality and heart, then The Ultimate Betrayal is the novel for you. I give this work 4 ½ cherries.
