Three cheers for Celeste Bradley! I was not particularly eager to buy this book because although I've loved all the other Liars books, I was never fond of Ethan Damont - his life is so precarious that it made me nervous and I didn't know how he'd properly transform into a romantic hero. Bradley, bless her heart, knew exactly how to weave his character into the role of a double agent, and she made all of the uncertainties about his life and personality into strengths. In the end, Damont was an incredibly compelling and really appealing hero because his weaknesses were sympathetic, and his admirable qualities came to the fore.

Jane was similarly wonderful. Bradley, here as ever, has created a heroine who has a mind of her own, a will of her own, and goals of her own.

I will admit that I think in order to keep Jane's secret under the covers, Bradley had to fudge a little too much on the early sections of the book. There's only one sex scene of note in the book, but it really is rather remarkable.

All in all: two thumbs up. ( )

Book description
He is a rake of the highest order, moving through Society in an endless pursuit of pleasure and delight. He has resisted joining the Liar's Club, a band of renegade spies who serve the Crown in complete secrecy. But when true love beckons, he must decide to whom he will pledge his loyalty ...


Ethan Damont's legendary gambling skills have earned him a place at the gaming tables of London's most exclusive homes. He has used his dubious place in Society to aid The Liar's Club. But his latest favor to the group has not only put his life in danger --- it has thrown him together with the woman who tempts him to forgo his rakish ways. Lady Jane Pennington is the ravishing niece of a suspected traitor. Now it's Ethan's job to discover if the woman he finds irresistible is naive to her uncle's deceit --- or guilty of treason against the Crown ...

Jane can barely wait for the Season to end --- until she meets Ethan Damont. After a humiliating first encounter, Jane expects a scoundrel like Ethan to joke at her expense. Instead, he behaves like a perfect gentleman. But just as Jane finds herself overcome by her desire for Ethan, he takes her captive. Suddenly, she is pulled into a dangerous world where it's impossible to know who is friend-and who is foe. Will Ethan prove to be her undoing ... or the love she has always longed for?
