Christopher St John has been released from Newgate so that he can get evidence against Lady Winter for the deaths of her two husbands who were actually agents of the crown. Lady Winter has been blackmailed by her murderous stepfather Viscount Welton to spy on Christopher St John. These two people therefore meet under the circumstances where they cannot trust each other as their lives, or those they love, are at stake. But as they spend more time in each others' company (usually horizontally in this book!) they begin to unravel the different layers of each others' personalities and find something rather more important together. There is also a subplot of Amelia, Maria's sister, and her blossoming into womanhood whilst under house arrest by her father - she is used as a bargaining chip to make Maria do Viscount Welton's bidding.
The plot is fairly good in this story but the disappointment for me was the ubiquitous sex scenes. One or two would have been enough to give us an idea that Christopher and Maria are compatible in bed but it seemed that they were leaping under the sheets at every possible opportunity and we had to have detailed all that they did there. Although this book is meant to be a romance it fell rather short on the romance and was far more of a sex manual and one which used rather coarse language as well, even between the hero and heroine. I was also not always entirely sure of the historical setting in many cases and some of the phraseology was American rather than 18th century English. There were some interesting characters such as Quinn, Amelia and Colin (who I imagine are the subject of a forthcoming book) but more could have been made of the hero and heroine in this story outside the bedroom. The book was a reasonable read but also a missed opportunity overlaid with too much sex.
