Nights of Fire is an entertaining story set against a backdrop of intrigue and world wide unrest. The charactersí loving has a sense of poignancy when the thought of war is ever present. The story moves relatively quickly, giving a realistic pacing to their lives. The reader gets a sense of Gabrielle and Paulís loyalty and dedication to the cause of French liberation. Leonie Daniels reminds us that even in the midst of war, love can triumph.
