France, March 1609. The French Wars of Religion are over, but forces still conspire against the crown…
Darion Delerue, former soldier turned highwayman, has only two things of value — the hope in his heart and the steel at his side. After a daring attempt to free a companion from prison goes wrong, Darion finds himself locked away in the Bastille and facing the noose, until a mysterious woman appears with a proposition. All he has to do? Turn on his highwaymen brethren and free the king’s daughter and the queen’s lady-in-waiting from their grasp. Darion’s decision could change the course of history.
Honor Among Thieves is a gripping tale of daring sword-play and political intrigue, mixed with superb historical detail of 17th Century France that’ll have readers ready to draw their rapiers and fight for glory!
