Séverine de Cabrillac, orphan of the French revolution and sometime British intelligence agent, has tried to leave spying behind her. Now she devotes herself to investigating crimes in London and finding justice for the wrongly accused.
Raoul Deverney, an enigmatic half-Spaniard with enough secrets to earn even a spy’s respect, is at her door demanding help. She’s the only one who can find the killer of his long-estranged wife and rescue her missing twelve-year-old daughter.
Séverine reluctantly agrees to aid him, even though she knows the growing attraction between them makes it more than unwise. Their desperate search for the girl unleashes treason and murder. . . and offers a last chance for two strong, wounded people to find love.
This book took me a while to get into, not by any fault of the Author. You see, I have read so many historical romance books that they all start to have very similar plot lines and characters this book was very different right from the start. It took me a while to stop reading this expecting typical historical romance characters and plots and to start reading it as more of an adventure book. I love that our lead characters are an infamous spy and thief and how their individual skill sets as such play into their relationship. This book as many twists and turns and is quite an adventure to read. I absolutely can not wait to add this to my collection.
