This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
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.
Another Feather in Walker's Cap!
I am still so upbeat about this series and the quality of the writing that I took half as long to read Book No. 2 as I did No. 1. I felt like I wasn't against the wind so much as WITH the wind as I clung to every word, every page. This Agent of the Crown (Martin) was embroiled in so much danger and chaos, both in France and England, that it was nail biting suspense throughout the story. Add to that the heroine ("Kit" for Katherine) and her danger from a brother-in-law after the death of her husband and sister, as she meets the hero and gets involved in Martin's danger...you have an explosive mix of romance and intrigue. It was truly an exciting story that kept me on the edge of my chair...and bed at night...from beginning to end. Now I'm off to Book No. 3 in the series!
