STORY: Sèverine 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 fourteen-year-old daughter.
Sèverine 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.
REVIEW: With this sixth story in her Spaymaster series, Joanna Bourne shines like never before. I adored everything in this story, from characters to the plot, but the romance of it just shines through and through. Oh, and let us not forget the action! There’s a lot of it and all of it is very exciting and nail biting.
I had the pleasure to read this story as an ARC and also listen to it on my Audible. Both were equally impressive.
I highly recommend you either listen to it or read it. You’ll love it!
