About Book


A night in London’s most exclusive bordello. Agent of the Crown Sir Martin Powell would not normally indulge, but the end of his time spying against Napoleon deserves a victory celebration. Yet, such pleasure will not come cheap. The auburn-haired courtesan he calls “Kitten” is in truth Katherine, Lady Egerton, a dowager baroness and the daughter of an earl as elusive as she is alluring. She flees a fate worse than death. But Martin has known darkness, too, and he alone can touch her heart—as she has touched his. To the English Midlands they will steal, into the rising winds of revolution.

My Thoughts


First of all have to point out that this book has a beautiful cover. Reagan Walker is a new author for me and I have to say that I absolutely loved this story.

The story was a light fun romance read with a little bit of spy intrigue.The characters were great and enjoyable to read about.


I would have to say that Agent of the Crown Sir Martin Powell would have to be my favorite character.He his tall dark and handsome and at the same time he has a dangerous aura that says I am deadly don't mess with me. On the other hand he is compassionate and loving and found him to be a very funny and witty character.

I also loved Katherine .She had a very difficult life yet seemed to stay strong in spirit.She never seemed to complain and was a very talented artist.Even though events transpired making her husband look guilty she had enough common sense to believe that there was a rational explanation and did not just run off and desert her man.

Katherine and Martin came together under unusual circumstances but, no matter there odd encounter they seem to have a connection which led Martin to search out Katherine in order to make her his .

Once I started on the story I could not put it down .The characters were so intriguing that they had you thinking what is to happen next.The story had a slow budding romance which helped Martin and Katherine strengthen
 there bond. Danger lurked at every turn for Katherine making you on edge thinking this poor women will she ever be at peace and feel safe again ?

The story was a page turner for me and had me up to the wee hours of the morning just to finish it. Would definitely recommend this read to all those other romance fans out there.It was my first book by Regan Walker but, It will not be my last will be definitely checking out her other works.

A job well done we are giving Against the Wind 5 stars.And this one goes into the keep pile to read again at a later date !

AGAINST THE WIND
By

BLURB  

A night in London’s most exclusive bordello. Agent of the Crown Sir Martin Powell would not normally indulge, but the end of his time spying against Napoleon deserves a victory celebration. Yet, such pleasure will not come cheap. The auburn-haired courtesan he calls “Kitten” is in truth Katherine, Lady Egerton, a dowager baroness and the daughter of an earl as elusive as she is alluring. She flees a fate worse than death. But Martin has known darkness, too, and he alone can touch her heart—as she has touched his. To the English Midlands they will steal, into the rising winds of revolution.



EXCERPT


Is making love something you do not wish to do?” he said. “As I recall, you seemed to enjoy it as much as I did.” Then, more tenderly: “Besides, I have missed you, Kitten.”

“No…I cannot. I am not your…your…” She could not bring herself to say the word. Their one night together had been a wonderful, amazing, and yes, passionate experience, but it could never happen again. She had escaped for one dreadful night into a dream. Into his arms. As much as she wanted those around her again, wanted to lie with him, she could not allow it. This was not who she was. Not who she was raised to be.

Placing his hands on her waist, he pulled her against him. The heat from his broad chest overwhelmed her as she stared into indigo eyes now stormy with desire. “You opened a door, Kitten, I’m unwilling to close.”

About the author







As a child Regan Walker loved to write stories, particularly about adventure-loving girls, but by the time she got to college more serious pursuits took priority. One of her professors thought her suited to the profession of law, and Regan realized it would be better to be a hammer than a nail. Years of serving clients in private practice and several stints in high levels of government gave her a love of international travel and a feel for the demands of the “Crown” on its subjects. Hence her romance novels often involve a demanding Prince Regent who thinks of his subjects as his private talent pool.


Regan lives in San Diego with her golden retriever, Link, whom she says inspires her every day to relax and smell the roses.
 




Regan will be awarding either Racing with the Wind or Lunchbox Romances that tie into the trilogy.The Holly and the Thistle and The Shamrock and the Rose (Winners Choice) to  a randomly drawn commenter during the tour.
