With intense scenes between Heath and Julia, one can definitely feel sympathy for their lost years.

However, the underlying plot of the French assassin is very thin. Not very developed and then wrapped up in a jiffy, again in a very convenient manner.

It is almost as if there are 2 different stories here - the romance and the suspense. They seem to operate separately regardless of each other. The romance storyline is far superior to the suspense, it may have been better without the suspense storyline to hold it back. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
For my talented editor, Charlotte Herscher, who has worked so hard to bring out the best in the Boscastles and in me as a writer. Working with you is a pleasure.
First words
Mayfair. 1814.
Until this evening Lieutenant Colonel Lord Heath Boscastle had been living under the pleasant illusion that he was the master of his own fate.
Quotations
"Heath was willing to risk his life for his country. Risking his heart was another matter."

"It was clear that he and Julia could not be trusted in the same room together. He would seduce her. Or she would shoot him. Either way, they'd both end up on the floor."

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345461231, Mass Market Paperback)

Award-winning author Jillian Hunter weaves another enthralling tale in which the path down the aisle is paved with startling twists of fate . . . and temptation.

Lord Heath Boscastle’s attraction for Julia Hepworth begins with a bang. She shoots him at a hunting party–accidentally, of course. Though the shot grazes his shoulder, her beauty pierces his heart. Sparks fly soon after when they find themselves dangerously close to a compromising position. Too inexperienced to understand such overwhelming emotions, Heath and Julia part ways.

Now, years later, Heath is a high-ranking intelligence officer, asked to protect his commander’s fiancée, Julia, while he chases down an elusive spy. Heath quickly regrets his promise when he meets Julia again–and their mutual desire still burns hotter than ever. Of course he will protect her. There is danger in the air. And Heath would never think of betraying his friend, until he learns that Julia herself has been betrayed. Suddenly seduction Boscastle style is the name of the game. Yet Julia has a trick or two up her own sleeve–and is determined to be a player, and not a mere pawn, in his wicked game.
