Just "happens" to meet Napoleon...etc. I don't mind the set up as a spy since most men wouldn't think of a woman as a spy, but find it hard-pressed that even the British would use a 16-year-old girl (albeit a pirate-girl who's eluded them at every turn) to use feminine wiles as way to get info.
Yes, she's loved by all the men, and in the truest sense of the word hasn't cheated on Jaimy, although I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't end up with her based on everything he's been through to be with her and she thinks he's been uncaring.
Our heroine Jacky is as feisty and lovable as ever, and not afraid to speak her mind...The scene where she comforts a dying French officer after the battle at Jena brought tears to my eyes. She is indeed someone to fall in love with, despite her sometimes impetuous nature.
My only complaint is that, at the rate I'm going (I've read the first six books since June 3rd.), I will finish 'Viva Jacquelina!' well before the September release of 'Boston Jacky.'
In this tale of the further adventures and misadventures of our dear Miss Jacky, she finds herself again at the mercy of the Royal Navy's Intelligence Department. She is to be sent to spy on the Grand Army of Napoleon in France. Posing as Mademoiselle Jacqueline Ophelia Bouvier (Jacqui O.? H'mmm That sounds familiar for some reason.) a dancer/seductress/spy with Madame Pelletier's troupe "Les Petites Gamines" in Paris, and then as a Cadet courier with Napoleon's Grand Army in France and Germany, charged with training a squad of raw enlistees knicknamed "The Clodhoppers," since they are all clumsy farmboys. She again involves herself in many dangers and narrow escapes...all exciting and great fun. Jacqui/Jacky still dreams about her true love Jaimy Fletcher back in London, but is also interested in a handsome young French officer named Jean-Paul de Valdon. One reviewer here was disappointed that Jacky was being unfaithful to Jaimy. Au contraire...Jacky was just being herself, a young lady who happens to like the company of handsome young men who are attracted to her. She was and always will be a fun-loving flirt. But, as always, she retains her virtue and deep love for Jaimy.
I've already given away some of the story and will leave it up to the reader of this excellent novel to enjoy the whole book for himself. This is a wonderful novel in a marvelous series and I recommend it highly. Vive Jacky! Vive L. A. Meyer!
Jacky is here to entertain us again, this time just calmly relaxing on her ship heading to Boston. After a (seemingly) glorious battle with her old nemesis Lafitte, she ends up being taken prisoner by her own country to serve for naval crimes! She is soon mysteriously rescued from French captivity, but it quickly becomes clear that her saviors have an ulterior motive....
