It ain't rocket science but somehow, she manages to juggle her characters through a variety of situations in Regency England and beyond. To her credit, she skilfully manages her plots and story lines but is never repetitive. Read any of her series and I defy you not to enjoy them and this book is another great example.
Nick's story is the last in the Inferno Club series and he has been a very naughty boy in a previous book. He has betrayed his brother agents, attempted to leave their order and failed to honour the strict code of chivalry expected from them. In the process, he has ended up in the order's dungeon sentenced to strict solitary confinement. From the moment of Gin's arrival and her offer to free him, the reader knows they are in for a great time.
Their story weaves together elements of previous books in the series and introduces a female character in Virginia, who demonstrates all the key elements necessary to become a recruit of the Order. She is the illegitimate daughter of Virgil, who trained Nick and his brother agents and has all the qualities required to be an agent but there is a little problem. She's a girl and as everyone knows, girls can't participate in intrigue and international espionage.
This does not stop Gin, she is in trouble and needs Nick to help her retrieve a valuable item, stolen by her baby-faced, previous lover, who is on the run and only this rogue agent can help her track him down. She is a resourceful, brave heroine, as committed to the ethos of St Michael as any of the male agents of the crown we have met in previous books, yet is a mother who has a softer, caring side. I enjoyed every part of the book and read it in one sitting.
For those of you who have not read Gaelen Foley's back catalogue, please do so. I cannot praise her work enough and I rate her alongside Mary Balogh and Elizabeth Thornton, writers who weave romantic, Regency stories but still remain innovative and fresh. You are in for a treat and hours of pleasurable reading but even if this is your first introduction to Gaelen Foley, this book can be read as a stand alone and you will enjoy the skilful blend of dialogue and storyline.
This is Nick's story. He has been thrown into a Scottish dungeon for daring to want to leave the Order. He just wants to live his life without being a spy or assassinate people. After six months, It is agreed by the Order that he will be freed if he helps lady investigator Virginia, Lady Burke, with a case she is working on. However, both Gin and the case are more than they at first seem.
