Product Description

Review

Praise for the novels of Joanna Bourne:

"Once in a while, during every reader's literary life, you encounter a book that reminds you why you are a reader. It renews your faith, if faith was lost; it rekindles your interest, if interest waned; and every word, every page, is a wonder.....Joanna Bourne is one of the best authors currently writing. If Ms. Bourne continues writing at such quality, she would deserve to be called one of the greatest romance authors ever. And I mean that." --All About Romance

"Books by [Joanna Bourne] are like a box of fine Laduree macaroons, not cheap junk food. They should be leisurely savored as the exquisite delicacies they are, for Bourne is a master wordsmith, able to charm, excite or break a reader’s heart with the stroke of her pen."--Dear Author

About the Author

Joanna Bourne is the award-winning author of Rogue Spy, The Black Hawk, The Forbidden Rose, My Lord and Spymaster, and The Spymaster's Lady. She has always loved reading and writing romance. She's drawn to Revolutionary and Napoleonic France and Regency England because, as she puts it, “It was a time of love and sacrifice, daring deeds, clashing ideals, and really cool clothing.” She's lived in seven different countries, including England and France, the settings of the Spymaster series. Joanna lives on a mountaintop in the Appalachians with her family, a peculiar cat, and an old brown country dog.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In this book, enemy spies get thrown in jail together. When they escape, the English spy captures the French spy to take her secrets to his masters, but his admiration for her skills and his attraction to her starts to distract him from his duty.

This is a very skillfully written book, from a suspense point of view. There are twists and turns to the story that eludes the usual cookie cutter spy romance. Annique's character is especially well characterized even if Robert's stays a bit vague. The only drawback to the plot is that the solution to everyone's problems arrives too abruptly. This makes the reader wonder why the characters spent so long agonizing between duty when the solution was so simple, and it makes the denouement less emotional, less romantic.

From a romance point of view, I thought the book was touching at times and frustrating at others. Maybe even too realistically so. Without revealing notable scenes, one can say that it is hard to see where the attraction was on Annique's part, Robert never seems to put her first, until the very end, and that's long after a long list of devious things he does to her. They're spies and enemies, but while Annique tries to escape, she doesn't undermine Robert's purpose like he does hers. So for a long time, the romantic conflict seems really one sided, with Robert acting like a heartless spy. It seems as though the romantic conflict on Robert's side is feeling remorse each time he does something he feels wrong about. If the reader can cope with this, the book will be an excellent read.

I had this sitting in my Kindle for a rainy day thinking it might be okay, never realizing what I gem I had. Just sitting there! While I wasted time with other drivel!!
It really, pretty much, had it all for me: adventure, character development (including many characters that were witty and you couldn't help but care for), relationship development (at one point I thought, "we'll that was quick", but this is one book it's totally okay), and a good, solid plot.
Grey/Robert made my heart melt and for how the author created his character and the things he said. I will be devouring another of her novels next.

I love Shanna and The Iron Rose, and feel this novel belongs on my 5 star list with them.

Enjoyed this immensely. The hero and heroine were whip-smart, good at their profession (they're both spies, one for England and one for France), and there's a very nice unexpected twist in the first half of the book. It's very nice to read books in which the heroine doesn't do something stupid purely to further the plot. It left me wanting to read something else by Joanna Bourne.
