    About “Louise Allen”

      Librarian Note There is than one author in the GoodReads database with this name See this thread for information This author also writes under the name Francesca Shaw.I have had my nose buried in a history book fact or fiction for as long as I can remember, but even important to me are the places and the objects that conjure up the past My first attempt at historical fiction at the age of eight was three pages of improbable medieval drama set in the local castle.With a degree in geography and archaeology I love to try and read the landscape and the buildings in it for clues about the past Virtually any place can trigger ideas for plots, but I am particularly inspired by Venice, Burgundy, Mediterranean islands and the Hertfordshire and Norfolk countryside.I live in England in a village in Bedfordshire with my long suffering husband He is not sure whether to be flattered or alarmed to be told he is the inspiration for all my romantic heroes Whenever possible we escape to our cottage on the North Norfolk coast where Percy, the bossy pheasant, allows us to share the garden.My resolution every time I start on a new plot is to plan it carefully, make copious notes first and write lots of drafts in a disciplined and orderly manner What inevitably happens is that the story starts to write itself in my head until it gets completely out of control meanwhile my study floor becomes a sea of open books, prints and maps and I am found sitting in the car at traffic lights, muttering dialogue At that point I have to start writing, knowing full well that the hero and heroine are going to take over and sabotage all my attempts at discipline It is, after all, their story.

    1. Once again Louise Allen has fascinated me with the period of history that I've never read before in any regency with Napoleon's occupation of Egypt. LA capture the terrible hardships to the stunning beauty of the Nile.While the history was amazing again the characters made me swung between impatience to anger.Cleo has put up with many types of abuse in her life, from her father to her husband. They never broke her will or spirit and now a widow, she finds herself with a sick man at her feet that [...]


    2. Louise Allen makes excellent use of both an unusual setting and some interesting historical detail as the backdrop to this enjoyable romance between an English spy and the widow of a French army officer.Beguiled by Her Betrayer is set in Egypt in 1801, shortly after Bonaparte’s departure from the region and his return to France. His expedition to Egypt – ostensibly to protect French trade interests and undermine Britain’s access to India – also included a large number of scientists and a [...]


    3. This was a different historical romance than any other I've read. It's set in Egypt during the Napoleonic era, with British and French armies facing off, and Bedouin armies advancing, and absent minded scholars wandering around in the desert studying temples and monuments. I really felt for Cleo and how strong she was and how much work she did trying to keep her father from dying, and I also could sympathize with her desire to knock him over the head and escape to a better life. I also liked Qui [...]


    4. The thing I appreciate about Allen's books is that she tries to give the reader different geographical settings to enjoy, and more unconventional characters than the usual Regency-style romance. This book seems typical of her work - it starts in Egypt, and only ends up in England for the last quarter of the book. The couple are also unique: she's been raised completely outside of English society of the day, and he's desperate to prove that there's more to him than his birth. I liked both of them [...]


    5. For this genre, really good historical detail: 1801 Egypt, with French and British armies in place, the Turks and Bedouins advancing. Absent-minded, neglectful father, widowed daughter, British diplomat trying to ferret out spies, back to Regency England and social expectations from aristocracy. Oh, and a romanceof sorts.I agree with other reviewers that this Hero was full of his own sense of honor and did not understand a woman's desire to be independent. Not unusual in that day, which brings a [...]


    6. I really enjoyed this book. I loved the descriptions of Egypt and I liked that Cleo is not some weak and untutored miss. She's a widow, a woman who has had a hard life even though she is of noble, indeed, aristocratic birth. I really felt bad when seeing how her father treated her, and how loveless the first marriage had been. But I enjoyed seeing her and Quin come together. Lovely.


    7. This is one historical you won't regret reading. A beautifully spun tale. Read my full review at My Devastating Reads
