The Little Huguenot

"The Little Huguenot." A Romance of Fontainebleau  (1895) 
by Max Pemberton
De Guyon, the king's musketeer, on a demanding task off his master, Louis the Wellbeloved.

The stillness of the forest compelled de Guyon to remember upon what emprise he was embarked. He began to wonder by what manner of cunning and tale he should lead "the little Huguenot," Gabrielle de Vernet, from her nest in the forest to the intrigues and dangers of the palace. He asked himself if all the stories of her wit and beauty were the mere fancies of her friends, or pretty realities which he must know and cope with....

What a task the conversion would be. He began even to wonder who would marry her when the royal ears were weary of her platitudes, and the spell of debauchery had chilled her zeal.
