A little darker than the earlier books in the series, this story features the tortured spy, Michael, who is expected to marry his late brother's fiancée. In the face of several assassination attempts that point to the re-emergence of his old enemy, can Michael's new bride break through his aloof reserve? The story also involves Michael's troubled spying assistants.
Again the characterisations and period details are convincing and the plot has satisfying twists and turns.
Emma Wildes is consistently good and this book is also a very good read. However sadly the publishers have managed to mess up the release dates I think this one should have been last as the characters referred to as the bad guys (trying not to spoil this here) where established in Our Wicked Mistake - which is available in UK in December. Other than this a book worth buying infact all her books are.
