The Faberge Entanglement, by Lesley Meryn and Elle Brookes
On Tour With “The Faberge Entanglement”
One woman. One man. Both seek the same treasure, each for their reason. Each will do what they must to get it.
At a party hosted by a wealthy Sheik, in celebration of his acquisition of his latest prize, the two notice each other immediately. Yet it is not until the party ends, a second surprising meeting occurs. This one will plunge them into a race, not just for the object but for their lives.
Sabine Darrieux, called Saber, is a translator, also tests security systems for her father’s company. She must retrieve the object to rescue her kidnapped father.
Adrian Steele is a British agent, seeking answers—and revenge—for his friend’s murder. He senses something more to the theft by Saber.
The two will crisscross the Atlantic, led by a voice on the telephone.
Unfortunately Saber and Steele aren’t the only ones after the treasure. But who follows them? Who would use Saber by taking her father?
The characters are both competent, effective and likable. The sexual tension is strong in the story whenever the two are near each other. It is well done, without explicit sex scenes. There is violence but the story is much more about reaching their goal.
It was an altogether entertaining read, one I didn’t stop reading until the end. An exciting, fast moving romantic thriller, the author draws the reader in quickly and doesn’t let go. Several surprising twists will have you fearing what will happen on the next page.
It’s a good one! Do give it a read. I’m hoping for another book with the same characters. Looking forward to where it might go next.

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!
