Book Blurb/Synopsis-

Major Sir Harry Lidge has done his duty. After losing too many good men in battle he's ready to live a life free of care. But first he has one last mission: kidnap the most outrageous woman in London--the same woman who betrayed him nearly a decade earlier--and find out what she's concealing before her secrets take down the crown.

Surrounded by ardent admirers and a few loyal friends, Lady Kate Seaton glides through the ton armed with nothing but couture gowns and bon mots. No one suspects that beneath her lighthearted facade lies a sorrow so scandalous she'll do anything to keep it hidden.

But only when she trusts Harry with the truth can she begin to heal. And only when Harry trusts her with his heart can he protect both his country and the woman he loves.

Our Review

This was an enjoyable book.There were like-able characters to associate with. There was not really a whole lot going on in this book pretty straight forward. The league is after a spy and they think that Lady Kate Seaton is some how involved.Its up to Captain Harry Lidge to uncover the Duchess's involvement with a verse this is the way the spies are passing messages. But, Kate knows nothing and  the Captain and her share a past together making things very uncomfortable for both parties. The man in charge tells  the Captain to kidnap the Lady and uncover her secrets. She knows nothing other than someone is trying to kill or and she does not know why.On top of it all her brother wants to put her in an asylum because of her aggressive behavior.Harry needs to make a choice and trust Kate and vice verse-a if they are ever going to find out what is going on.

 During this time the two learn to forgive one another and perhaps let go of the past a little bit at a time. These two were endearing with there own ghost's .The two had  become hardened over the years because of so much heart-ache for both of them there pain was evident and your heart felt sadness for both of them.You see the thawing of their hearts through the pages of this book. Perhaps giving them a chance to trust one another again and love again. There is quite a few twists and turns in order to solve the matter of both the verse and who is out to kill Kate.Secrets are revealed from the past. More secrets uncovered and more lives were saved.A nice light read with intrigue laughs and a few tears.

I really love this authors stories and have become such a fan of her's.She is on my auto list of authors to read once there books come out.Just love her stories.Be sure to check out her other books in this series as well as her other title.

A recommended read to all !
