From the author of An Affair with Mr. Kennedy and A Dangerous Liaison with Detective Lewis comes a sexy new romantic caper in the Gentlemen of Scotland Yard series.
Prima ballerina Catriona de Dovia lives the glamorous life of a starlet, filled with glittering jewels, sumptuous dinners, and admiring suitors. She’s grown up considerably since losing her heart to Hugh Curzon once upon a time, no longer wasting her emotions on the empty promises of wealthy gentlemen. On her own since the untimely death of her parents, she will do anything for the only family she has left: her brother, a notorious anarchist.
Scotland Yard Agent Phineas Gunn—sometimes known as Hugh Curzon—receives his new assignment reluctantly. He’s up for something a little more strenuous than playing nanny to a ballerina, until he sees who his charge is. Then, it’s a completely different story, because he’d been unable to forget the trusting, beautiful Cate since he had to leave her behind.
As the two race across the Continent—by land, by sea, even through the air by zephyr—it becomes uncertain who is keeping tabs on whom, and Finn and Cate must battle the sexual tension that snaps and sizzles between them every step of the way.
I first fell in love with the character Phineas Gunn aka Hugh Curzon in A Dangerous Liaison. I was so happy to hear that Jillian Stone had decided to give him his own book in her series The Gentlemen of Scotland Yard.
Jillian Stone definitely knows how to build up suspense. Every turn in the book, you didn’t know who to trust. There were moments when the suspense was broken up with something hysterical happening to the characters. Thankfully, it was done at just the right times.
Even after reading A Danger Liaison with Detective Lewis, I still was not able to predict what would happen in this book. The author really knows how to keep you guessing until the very end.
I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
