As their flight becomes increasingly perilous, Sidney and Emma must trust each other with their lives—but can they trust each other with their hearts?
My review: Oh. My. Goodness! I loved everything about this book. I loved Lady Emma, I love how she is a proper girl having her second London Season, but she's not really looking for a husband. She's already in love with her brother's best friend, Sydney Fletcher, so she's turned down a couple of marriage offers. I love how when she comes up with a way to help rescue Sydney, there is no turning back and she goes to extraordinary lengths, stowing away on her brother's ship, and deceiving her brother William to get just what she wants. My heart dropped when I realized just what danger she had put herself in, as I imagine hers did as well. But I love how she soldiered on in the worst of circumstances, putting on a brave face for Sydney and all around them. Emma is one of my very favorite characters, she's got spunk. The love story is sweet too, and this one is full of enough action and adventure to keep you reading late into the night when you know you should be sleeping. Make sure to read this great new book by Jennifer Moore, you won't regret it!
