Hi everyone! I have a stop on the A Code of Love blog tour today. There is a review of the book and a giveaway for you all.

A Code of Love
The Code Breakers Series Book One
By: Jacki Delecki

First in The Code Breaker Series

Men and Women from the class of privilege risk their lives to defend England against the designs of Napoleon. They confront scandal, personal crisis, and love as they pursue their code of honor and love.


Lord Cordelier Fortesque Rathbourne, scarred by the loss of his older brother, accepts an undercover assignment in France hoping to escape his past. Four years later, he returns to England as the Head of Intelligence. His charges include the brilliant Harcourt family – Uncle Charles, a premier Code Breaker; Michael, a linguist on assignment in France; and the indomitable Henrietta. Cord discovers that his previous attraction to Henrietta hasn’t diminished, but neither has Henrietta’s memory of his rakish past.

All become entangled in a web of intrigue and danger when Michael surreptitiously sends Henrietta a Code Book, vital to the English War effort.

My Review
Cord has been working undercover in France for four years. He left to try and get over the loss of his brother. Before he left he was attracted to Henrietta but she wouldn't have anything to do with him. Now he has returned to England as the head of Intelligence. He is the boss of Henrietta' s uncle and brother. They are excellent code breakers and secretly Henrietta is the best of them all. She still doesn't want anything to do with Cord but she has to find out what happened to her brother who is missing. When Henrietta is sent a code book her life and her families are in danger. She will have to learn to trust Cord.

Henrietta is a great character. You see from the start she is very smart and not one to be turn by a handsome man. She isn't afraid to rush into danger if she can save her family and she works hard to help her uncle. Cord may have been a rogue in the past but he has changed. He really wants Henrietta to see how he is changed. He is a hard worker and does his best to protect his charges and help England.

This is a very intriguing book that has tons of twist and turns. You always wonder who is really working for what side who is behind it all and danger is always around. Cord still finds time to try and woo Henrietta and he sees the wonderful woman for all she is. Where others would shun her I'd they knew she was a code breaker he doesn't. He just has to make her see he is worthy of her. There is plenty of twist and turns I didn't see coming. A few where funny like Code' s aunt. There is tons of action and I look forward to the next book.
