After five years of tracking and capturing spies on English soil, Philip Jonquil, Earl of Lampton, is in pursuit of his last quarry. But at a traveler’s inn, he encounters an unexpected and far more maddening foe: Sorrel Kendrick, a young lady who is strikingly pretty, shockingly outspoken, and entirely unimpressed with him.
Indeed, Sorrel cannot believe the nerve of this gentleman, who rudely accuses her of theft and insults her feminine dignity. Doubly annoyed when they both end up at a party hosted by mutual friends, Philip and Sorrel privately declare war on one another. But Philip’s tactics, which range from flirting to indifference, soon backfire as he finds himself reluctantly enjoying Sorrel’s company; and, much to her dismay, Sorrel finds Philip’s odd manner to be increasingly endearing.
In the midst of this waning war and growing attraction, Philip catches wind of the French spy he’s been tracking, and Sorrel inadvertently stumbles upona crucial piece of the puzzle, making her indispensable to the mission. But can two proud hearts negotiate a cease fire when cooperation matters most?
I can’t find the stars to click to rate this book. I thought it was good. I would give it a 3.5. I guess maybe it is a good thing the stars aren’t there because I would have had to choose between 3 and 4. 🙂
Megan, sorry. The star rating I used to have when I was at Blogger stopped working. Had to find a new one. So all the books posted since I switched to this URL have a rating. The older ones don’t. Hopefully, one of these days I’ll get around to updating the previous posts. Until then, commenting counts. Give yourself the points 🙂
Sarah Eden’s “Legacy Romances” are AMAZING!
I have read and LOVED everyone of them!
I enjoyed this book a ton! It isn’t my favorite of the Jonquil brothers, but I love the fire that flares between Phillip and Sorrel! It was a fun read, and as always I would recommend it to a friend. (I have in fact done so, HAHA!)
This is a fun book with a lot of witty banter. It is a clean non-religious historical romance novel.
Phillip is an Earl leading a double life as a spy.
Sorrel is a lady who has had an accident leaving her a cripple and a little syndicalism towards life.
I enjoyed reading their relationship grow. There were some holes in the story (like how they actually met when she couldn’t walk without a cane), but overall I enjoyed it.
I thought this was another quick, fun and clean read. I have enjoyed all the Jonquil Brothers books. All of the books have kind of the same formula but each is still very different in story line and characters so I don’t mind that too much. I enjoyed Philips alter ego and the banter with Sorrel. They are both pretty clever and witty. In part I judge a book by how much I want the story to continue and if I’m sad to say good bye to the characters when I close the book. I was sorry to see this story end. And it made me want to read the other Jonquil brother’s books again just to catch a little glimpse of these characters once more. (I didn’t read these books in order since I checked them out from the library and took them in order of availability. This one took a long time to get. I think I was number 17 on the reservation list).
