Count Christoph flees the French Revolution's carnage, only to meet Scarlett--a beautiful, lionhearted widow--who adores his faith but is also related to the murderer of the count's family.

Publishers Description
New from Jamie Carie, today's most awarded new Christian romance writer.Christophe, the Count of St. Laurent, has lost his entire family to the blood-soaked French Revolution and must flee to an ancient castle along the southern border of France to survive. But the medieval city of Carcassonne proves more than a hiding place. Here Christophe meets the beautiful widow Scarlett, a complex and lionhearted woman suddenly taken by the undercover aristocrat's passion for astronomy and its influence upon his faith. Although their acquaintance begins brightly enough, when the Count learns that Scarlett is related to the man who murdered his family, he turns from love and chooses revenge. Heaven only knows what it might take for Christophe to love again, to love his enemy, and to love unconditionally.

Love"s First Light  Apr 2, 2010
I received this book in good shape and it was very good reading. Would reccomend it .
Good Story by a talented writer  Mar 8, 2010
I had read Jamie Carie's Snow Angel a couple of years ago and remember enjoying it, but this one was better than I expected.
Love's First Light starts in the heat of the French Revolution with an aristocratic family being executed. One teenage boy and his little sister escape. They are separated, and he later sees her being led to the guillotine. The heart ache, anger, and guilt form the man that Christophe St. Laurent becomes. The Revolution has left its scars on the heroine of the story, Scarlett, as well. She is widowed while expecting her first child. Christophe and Scarlett meet, feeling an instant bond, but he later learns that their feelings are not their only connection. The past ties them together in an almost unbearable way, and he flees from her back to his original pursuit of revenge. God works in mysterious ways and brings these two together again with more surprises awaiting. This story is a journey to reconciliation, forgiveness, and ultimately love: God's love and protection for His children, and the power of forgiveness for the one being forgiven, the one letting go, and those witnessing it.
I really enjoyed reading this book. The opening scene pulled me in, and I stayed engaged through the entire book. I became attached not only to both main characters, but also to many of the secondary characters. Jamie Carie creates beautiful romantic scenes as well as tense page-turning moments. I understand there is a historical discrepancy in the book dealing with the statue of liberty and the time frame; however, I did not notice it while reading. I read about in a review after completing the novel. It is important to have accurate facts when writing a historical novel, but that being said, Jamie Carie is a talented author. I do feel like I had gained a deeper understanding of the horrors of the French Revolution. Also, I have heard that a couple of her other books are even better than this one, and I look forward to reading those in the future.
Another hit for Jamie Carie  Feb 12, 2010
Jamie Carie is definitely making her mark on Christian fiction. Love's First Light is a romantic drama at its best. You will get so hooked on the characters that you will not want to put the book down. Christophe' will touch your heart with his story and what he has gone through. Scarlett is a gentle but strong woman. Having this story set in the French Revolution brings the horror and survival that went on during that time and how Scarlett and Christophe persevere through it with Christian faith and values. They have many challenges to face, many emotions to deal with, and you will be cheering them each step of the way. This is another book by Ms Carie that is a winner for her and for her readers. This a must read for Ms carie's readers.
Enjoyable historical and not a typical romance  Jan 9, 2010
"Love's First Light" is a historical with romance set in France in 1789 & 1794 during the French Revolution. The very beginning was a bit painful to get through (due to the content), but the rest was very enjoyable.

The world-building was excellent, with historical details that brought the world alive in my imagination. (There was a Statue of Liberty mistake, but it was a very minor detail that wasn't important to the story.) The pacing was excellent and, except for a brief interlude in the middle, the tension remained high.

While I felt that some plot lines climaxed a bit early, the pacing remained fast and the story interesting to to end. The epilogue left a few question in my mind since it didn't fully explain why things ended up the way they did (we're simply told this was how they ended up). I'm not sure most people would even notice, though, since the obvious problems were tied up neatly.

The characters were interesting, and I grew to care about what happened to them. Sometimes I had trouble following the author's portrayal of how Christophé saw the world in a mathematical way, but these descriptions were brief and I still got the point, so it wasn't a problem.

The novel did have Christian elements, but it wasn't preachy. The characters lived out their faith the best they knew how with their lives thrown into confusion. They were searching for answers about God's character and his plan/will when life no longer made sense. As long as the reader isn't anti-Christianity, I don't think the Christian elements would bother them.

There was no sex or bad language. The gore was not graphic as the details were left to the reader's imagination. Overall, I'd highly recommend this novel was well-written, clean reading.

I received this book as a review eGalley from the publisher.
