He is her enemy.
He is her lover.
He is her only hope.
     Someone is stalking French agent Justine DeCabrillac through London's gray streets. Under cover of the rain, the assassin strikes--and Justine staggers to the door of the one man who can save her.  The man she once loved.  The man she hated.  Adrian Hawkhurst.
     Adrian wanted the treacherous beauty known as "Owl" back in his bed, but not wounded and clinging to life. Now, as he helps her heal, the two must learn to trust each other to confront the hidden menace that's trying to kill them--and survive long enough to explore the passion simmering between them once again.

Our Review

This is going to be a quick one for me. This was not a favorite read for me. The others reviewers impressions were you either loved it or its just and okay read. I had a lot of problems with this story that turned me off. One of them was the going back and forth one minute in  the present and them your in the past.I hate books that skip around like that you have a hard time keeping track whats what.The other thing is that this is a romance book right ? It was very lacking in that department. I think I would have liked the story more if there was more involvement with this couple in working on renewing there relationship.I felt the story was rushed.I don't mind the spy stuff making it part of the plot is okay but when it consumes the plot is not a book for me. The things that I did like were that basically two hardened spy's who survived war found a love in one another and a chance for a Happily ever after. I love Joanna books and I so wanted to get into this book and like it more as all her other books were 5 star reads for me this story had high hopes for me but I found it lacking.
