“The Lady's Code ”

The Lady's Code
Samantha Saxon
Berkley, Aug 2006, $6.99
ISBN: 042521107X

In 1812 the note he forged tricked her into coming to the library alone as she thought she was meeting her beloved Robert. Instead the grey haired man explains to Lady Juliet Pervill that since her odious father took a lot of money from him leading to his ruin he wants a pound of flesh for remittance. He assaults her sexually even as gossips Lord and Lady Winslow watch without intervention. However, worse is the look of betrayal she sees from her beloved Robert Barksdale. He refuses to hear her side he walks away from her with scorn and disgust. Lord Harrington tells Juliet regards to her father before leaving her ruined.

Refusing to hide in disgrace for the actions of nasty others, Juliet offers her mathematical and logic skills to the Foreign office. She is accepted and assigned to work with renowned code-breaker Seamus McCurren. However, he takes her presence as an insult to his failure to break the latest French encryption. That is until he realizes she matches his wit with a sharp counterintelligence and displays an aptitude towards cryptography. As they fall in love and begin unravel the code, a dangerous agent prepares to kill both of them to prevent their success.

THE LADY'S CODE will be considered by most Regency fans as one of the top five novels in the sub-genre for 2006. The Napoleonic War story line grips the audience from the hateful vengeance opening scene and never slows down until the final puzzle is uncovered. The cryptology aspects of the tale add depth to the suspense and to the understanding of the mathematically inclined lead couple. Readers will fully appreciate Samantha Saxon's stupendous saga and seek out the previous capable romantic Ladies' thrillers (see LADY KILLER and LADY LIES).
