The Faberge Entanglement

Date Published: July 14, 2015
Sabinne ‘Saber’ Darrieux’s father, the billionaire CEO of Frontenac Global Security has been kidnapped. His ransom is not cash in a numbered offshore account, or a briefcase of Bearer Bonds but something utterly unique, incredibly valuable, and until recently, hidden away from the world.
The kidnapper seems to know Saber very well, and knows that the next day, through her work as an elite translator she will be in the same location as the Object. She must steal the Object and deliver it to the kidnapper to ransom her father.
Adrian Steele, a British Intelligence agent has just come off of two harrowing missions. Upon returning to London for a well-earned rest, he learns that his friend and fellow agent, has been murdered in Moscow, but not before he made use of a unique Object as a mobile ‘drop site’ for the valuable intelligence he was carrying.
The drop site is traveling from Moscow to England. Steele insists on completing the mission to honor the death of his friend, Gerry Cornell.
At an ultra-chic quasi-diplomatic gathering in a mansion in Windsor, England, Saber and Steele meet and find themselves faced with a powerful, undeniable attraction. But at the moment, this compelling attraction is very inconvenient.
In reality they are at the mansion to check out the security arrangements — for their own reasons — to steal the Object, a Fabergé egg worth thirty million dollars. But who will get to the egg first?
Fabergé eggs are very famous for their unique surprises. Saber and Steele are about to be very surprised, indeed.
And when Saber clashes with Steele; more than sparks will explode!
The Faberge eggs are famous for their exquisite design, impeccable details and valuable treasures inside the perfectly crafted shells. No wonder a lot of people are interested in acquiring it, even if it’d cost them millions to find it. Sabinne aka Saber needed it to ransom his missing father. Steele must find it to bring justice and honor to his killed friend.
Two lives got entangled by a delicately crafted Object, both determined to survive and accomplish their tasks. Would they be able to get their jobs done, or would they fall trapped in each other’s arms. Saber and Steele are two complicated characters, two undeniably attractive spies, two foreboding specimens with one dangerous mission. Who would prevail in the end?
This had been a totally mind-blowing and adrenaline-pumping, hard-hitting story one should not miss! Steele was a brilliant British spy and a very dear friend, an endearing trait in my books. Saber, sometimes a hoot, sometimes crazy, but surely a good daughter. The places Steele & Saber had been to, in search of the $30M egg, the different people they encountered, all of these added flavor and spice to the story. On top of wonderful plot, the other characters were also a delight to meet. I just loved getting lost in their wild and rousing adventures until the end of the book. Authors Lesley Meryn and Elle Brookes were able to find the right formula for a thrilling, exciting and suspenseful mystery that is sure to bring a smile to their readers’ faces.
