Miss Amelia Bonnington has been in love with her childhood hero since she was 11 years old. Or so she thought until a not-so-proper impassioned and unyielding kiss from the not-so-honorable and equally disreputable Lord Derrick Brinsley gave her reason to question the feelings of the heart.
Lord Brinsley, shunned from society for running off with his brother's fiancée, hasn't cared about or questioned his lack of acceptance until meeting the beguiling Amelia Bonnington. One passionate moment with the fiery Miss Bonnington has him more than willing to play by society's rules to possess the breathtaking red-haired woman.
Amelia unwittingly becomes embroiled in espionage when she stumbles upon a smuggling ring in the modiste shop of her good friend. To prove her French friend's innocence, she dangerously jumps into the fray, jeopardizing more than her life.
On undercover assignment to prevent the French from stealing the Royal Navy's deadly weapon, Derrick must fight to protect British secrets from falling into the hands of foreign agents and the chance at love with the only woman capable of redeeming him.

I'm Hooked on Code Breakers!
Not having read the print version I can't comment
The ongoing story line
The dance at the end
Yes, but was unable to due to life's interference.
My third read (listen) from author Jacki Delecki and I have to admit I'm hooked on the Code Breakers series! Wonderful character development (as always). The narrator does a good job of mixing her voice inflections to give character to the characters. Action, suspense and romance build throughout the book, until near the end you cannot wait to turn the next page! Delecki has created a series of books that you cannot wait to get to the next one. AS always I look forward to the next book.

Sizzling "Proper Lady" Is Full of Surprises
I always am amazed at the verbiage that was used in the old days. This book has no foul language and is so interesting to listen to. The character's are polite even when they are having a disagreement. Too bad this way of life no longer exists !
I enjoyed the story line about how Amelia was in love with Derrick since she was a child. It's nice to hear that true love can and does exist.
I have listened to Pearl Hewitt before and I always enjoy hearing her British accent. It is so refreshing and sweet but also she can get a little spicy too !!
I was moved when Amelia finally made it perfectly clear that she wanted to make love to Derrick. She knew what she wanted and she just came right out and asked for it. He was happy she did !
I would advise that anyone who reads this to go back to book 1. This book is a "stand alone" story but I still feel I need to hear the series from the beginning.
I was given this audio book in exchange for an honest review. I'm so thankful to Pearl Hewitt for this gift !!
