If you're looking for a fun, adventurous love story, I highly recommend this book. A flawed hero and heroine have to wrestle their personal demons while wrangling with the pesky issue of staying alive. Charlotte, generous but naive, never seems to completely fit in with the crowd. She's at a house party in the country when she wanders out and happens upon the dangerous hero, James, in a suspicious rendez-vous. James, meanwhile, an English spy, is hard pressed to believe the coincidence. That night, Charlotte's attacked in her room. James comes to her rescue, only to have the two of them discovered in a seemingly uncompromising position. What follows is a sham engagement that's as heated as their arguements. They secretly try to prove the other's guilt, all the while falling in love. Good, strong characters, unexpected plot twists and a heroine that's not afraid to defend herself. Great suspense. Great read!
