About the book: Lord Jonathon Beckett's mission is simple: retrieve Lady Hannah and place her under the protection of the Crown. But he isn't prepared for the havoc she inflicts on his world, making him question whether his duty as an agent of the Crown should always come before his heart.
Lady Hannah's father has uncovered evidence exposing a French traitor to the Crown. Willing to do anything to silence him, the traitor's primary target has become Lady Hannah. Keeping her safe means locking her away from Society, but she refuses to stand idly by, letting others put their lives on the line to protect her. Instead, she will stop at nothing to learn to defend herself, even at the risk of losing Lord Jonathon's protection, or his affections.
With a sinister scheme in play to collapse the English government from within, Lord Jonathon must protect Lady Hannah from the French spies intending to use her as a pawn in their game of treachery. But can he protect her from herself?
My review: After reading Saving Shadow by this author, I was super excited to read this one. And you know what, it was just as great!
I loved Lady Hannah. I was really excited to realize this book was about her, because the first book mentioned that she was missing and that was about all. I loved that she had been raised as a Lady, but when she was taken in and given protection by a family that owned a farm, she pitched right in. She even learned to milk a cow, although there was no way she could mention that to the London Ton! Hannah has a lot of pluck, she even goes out of her way to learn to protect herself and she is actually able to when it matters the most.
Then there's Lord Jonathon. He spends weeks and weeks searching for Lady Hannah. And when he finally finds her, she isn't quite what he's expecting. I liked that he had to work so hard to learn just what she needed and how to be able to help her without coming across as over protective. I loved that you see the story from his point of view as well as Hannah's, it just makes it come alive a bit more.
This one's a Regency Romance. I love that not one little scene in this one is spent in a ballroom full of the Ton. It's an adventure from start to finish and it's plot kept me very interested. This is a fun one that I didn't want to put down! I can't wait for the next book by this author!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
