Publisher's Summary

With his older brother's betrothal announced, Lord Michael Cynster is freed of all familial expectations. But the allure of his previous hedonistic pursuits has paled. Then he learns of the mission his brother and his fiancée have been assisting with and volunteers to help by hunting down a hoard of gunpowder now stashed somewhere in London.
Michael's quest leads him to the Hendon Shipping Company, where his sole source of information is the fetchingly attractive Miss Cleome Hendon. When Michael asks about the carters who transported the gunpowder, Cleo offers him a bargain: she will lead him to the carters he seeks, but only if he agrees to include her as an equal partner in the mission.
But their investigation proves dangerous, and the further they go in tracing the gunpowder, the more deaths they uncover. Soon Michael and Cleo find themselves tangled in a fight for their lives - one that forces them to face what has grown between them, to seize and defend what they both see as their path to the greatest adventure of all: a shared life, a shared future, a shared love.

A book and good narrator, but BAD end result.

The book MIGHT have been very fun, and the narrator was good, but the two did NOT mesh well together. Finishing this book was honestly a chore. It's a shame because neither of the two were were bad, they just didn't mesh well. The story DRAGS along, and the narrator's speed and speech patterns slow it down more. He is good at what he does, but when you have a detailed book, and a methodical narrator.... Oh and it became a game to count how many times the phrase, "gun powder" could be used in a single chapter.

least engaging storyline of the trilogy.

the story was ok. fwd through the sex scences, never got to point of suspension of disbelief. it filled the storyline holes the other two left.
