Intense!

This one was a more intense than the first two books in this awesome series, but still very entertaining. If you're up for something deeper and more gritty than the usual, you might enjoy this.

Jess Whitby's father, the owner of a shipping company, is accused of selling secrets to Napoleon, but she is determined to discover the real traitor and save her father from the gallows. Having spent her early life on the dangerous streets of London as a thief, she has skills that most young ladies do not. She sets about using those skills, and her network of old connections, to ferret out the truth.

Capt. Sebastian Kennett has his reasons for wanting to see Josiah Whitby hang. But when he meets Jess, he finds himself falling hard for her.

The British intelligence gang is all here, and I loved seeing those characters again.

The players in this one felt more real and the stakes were higher than the first two. I'm very glad to have experienced it, but it wasn't an easy romance. This is a novel of complexity, and there were times when it got so intense I wanted to put it down, but I couldn't.

Joanna Bourne continues to impress me with her creativity. I'm a big fan.

Terrific book

Characters you liked immediately, a plot that kept me coming back for the next chapter. Wonderful narration, good writing, just enough steamy sensuousness, off to find the next in the series.
