Every gentleman has his secrets...
After years of marriage to a selfish man who preferred gambling to his young bride, Jane, the widowed countess of Stanwell, now seeks what she was long denied—a satisfying lover. Naturally, a lady needs a list of eligible candidates, which doesn’t include the dangerously handsome (if far too arrogant) Gareth Ramsey…until he steals a sinful kiss from Jane’s all-too-willing lips.
Reputed as an arrogant barrister, Gareth’s real occupation is as a spy in the service of His Majesty, and his suspect is on Jane’s list of possible lovers. With her life in danger, there’s no safer place for Jane than with him—and in his bed. But Jane is as distracting as she is infuriating, and keeping her by his side while he pursues his mission might just endanger them both…
This is am exceptional read. Starting was captivating and ending was perfect. Although in the middle it seemed to drag for a while but overall it is good. Plot and characters are well written. I'd definitely recommend this book to all historical romance lovers.
Gareth Ramsey is a spy. He is supposed to be on a secret mission but Lady Jane Stanwell keeps distracting him. She is a widow in search of a lover, she seeks adventure and pleasure. Gareth is more than willing to fulfill Lady's desires but his duty is standing in the way. There is instant attraction between the two. But they are reluctant to trust each other. This book has it all, romance, intrigue, adventure and a little mystery. I really liked reading it.
