This is actually a follow up to book 1 Seduction which I hadn't liked very much and had I known this I wouldn't have bought it and it's not one of BJ's best.
However, it was much better than the first and could be a stand alone book - it wasn't so much of a history lesson, and much more on the unrequited love angle. Amelia has loved Simon, her once childhood sweetheart, ever since he abandoned her 10 years ago but now he needs her help with a dead wife, 2 sons and a newborn baby. But Simon has been forced to become a Double Agent and the pressure and heartache is too much for him and it's slowly making him crack apart and time is running out for her to save him.
This was an enjoyable listen and you just can't figure out how he can get out of his problems - but it was a bit too heavy on the sickly sweet and too light on passion and heat, I found myself rewinding thinking I'd missed parts like one minute their in the Library arguing the next he's getting off the bed doing up his trousers and she's pulling her dress back down ..... errr come on I need a little bit more.
Worth of credit? If you like your Regency romances on the mild and tame side then it would be a yes from you, but I like a bit more 'fire' in my romances, and I think there's many more books more deserving, so it's a no from me.

The heroine in this book was way to whiny at times and so ignorant. The hero was not what I would call romantic. But I went along with this book. The narrator was ok. I did not particularly like ther narration of the hero.. She made him sound so slow and his conversations wer choppy. I was read the book and took me about 3 days to get through it. This was not the worst book I have listened to but far from the best... So I gave it 3 stars.
