“An engaging, refreshingly original storyteller.”—Stephanie Laurens
“Stefanie Sloane writes utterly delectable and seductive Regency romance!”—Teresa Medeiros
About the Author
A native Northwesterner with the pale skin to prove it, Stefanie Sloane credits her parents’ eclectic reading habits—not to mention their decision to live in the middle of nowhere—for her love of books. A childhood spent lost in the pages of countless novels led Stefanie to college, where she majored in English. No one was more surprised than Stefanie when she actually put her degree to use and landed a job in Amazon.com’s editorial department. She spent more than five years reading for a living before retiring to concentrate on her own stories. Stefanie Sloane lives with her family in Seattle.See all Product Description

I would have liked to have known how Iris ' s season went and if she found a husband who could contain her need for excitement. And it would have been more humorous if the author had described what James went through bathing Pharaoh

London may have been scandalous, but1811 Paris proves unsafe. Clarissa is given the choice between abetting a criminal gang and receiving the body part of her mom. Young Corinthian member James never forgot the woman who hurt his soul. Now he has a second chance when he pretends to betray the Crown by going undercover to get inside a French gang. In London Clarissa is drafted when her mentor St. Michelle's arm is broken to paint a portrait of Iris Bennett, a Canadian debutante who wants a European adventure; James pretends to be Clarissa's assistant as he has found his muse to his heart and to the gang.
The latest Regency Rogues (see The Angel in My Arms and The Devil In Disguise) romantic suspense is an action-packed second chance at love thriller. A fast exciting read, fans will root for Clarissa and James to save the crown and their respective hearts in Stefanie Sloane's super story.
The hero, James, is a double agent, who fakes his own death but is devoted to England. His former love & great artist, Clarissa, decides to disguise self as her artist mentor, Bernard, who's French, helping hero's plan.Clarissa as Bernard, is commissioned to do a portrait of a wealthy man's daughter, Iris. Clarissa must finish painting, ASAP, as baddie has threatened her mother, still in France. Story devotes too much time to baddie.
Iris craves excitement and puts herself & others in danger several times & is slow to gain insight about this, Some readers might consider Iris TSTL. Iris' parents are oblivious to her nighttime adventures. Huh?
Multiple times Clarissa mentions she's too emotional. Do readers care? The hero doesn't seem to make Clarissa ( or the reader) weak in the knees. He is masculine and can defend himself & others, but where is the spark in his personality? Why would she reconcile with him? Lastly the 2 leads make love when the hero has fresh knife wounds- huh? Huh? Sorry to say this book is not even close to being 'a keeper.'
So I should be pleased by this author's lack of description, yes? Unfortunately, the one thing she should not have skimped on describing are the emotions of the characters and their interactions with each other - which I sorely missed. While I appreciate not being bored to death by meaningless descriptions the book would have been much more entertaining if the meaningful descriptions had been written. The whole thing felt rather... watered down.
