She's braved battlefields. She's stolen dispatches from under the noses of heads of state. She's played the worldly courtesan, the naive virgin, the refined British lady, even a Gypsy boy. But Annique Villiers, the elusive spy known as the Fox Cub, has finally met the one man she can't outwit...
British spymaster Robert Grey must enter France and bring back the brilliant, beautiful - and dangerous - Fox Cub. His duty is to capture her and her secrets for England. When the two natural enemies are thrown into prison, they forge an uneasy alliance to break free. But their pact is temporary and betrayal seems inevitable as the fates of nations hang in the balance.

The narrator, the whole story, everything about this book is GREAT! Buy it, its one story you'll never get tired of hearing.
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
I got this title mainly because of the narrator. Kirsten Potter is one of my favorite narrators. She did an amazing job with this story. Her french, german and British accents were excellent. She is capable of doing so many different voices that it really brings life and depths to the story. Her narration was truly impecable.
This is my first title by Joanna Bourne and I loved it. Not only do we get a yummy passionate romance but we get a very interesting story full of intrigue, betrayal and surprising twists. The story was complete (no cliffhanger) but still it drew me in so bad I already got the second book. Quite addictive.
Loved the historical aspect of this story as well as the adventure and the surprise twist to the story. I think Kirsten Potter did a great job of bringing these characters to life and her accents were fun and entertaining! Joanna Bourne can sure write a love scene that seems realistic and natral without it being trashy and vulgar. The characters are a little over the top and incredible but still so amusing that you can't help but find out more. I would love for audible to present more of Joanna Bourne's work.
Great book, with a beautiful love story. This is one of my favorite re-listens. Kirsten Potter, the narrator Is fantastic. I have actually started buying books just because she narrates them.
was not expecting the intricacies of this book - really had me listening intently as things changed all the time. the characters are developed well and the reader was terrific. the story was a little far fetched but i didn't mind. loved the fighting, the tension, the twists. the narrator was great at the accents. definitely a great listen
I was blown away by the story and narration of this book. The narrator is the best I have listened to, she did such a variety of accents, I could not believe it was possible they were done by the same person. The story is very engaging and it deserves 5 star rating, but the audio version of the book deserves +5more points. I recommend this book for everyone, even if you do not like romance reads you will enjoy it. From french accents to german and english it was awesome!!!
I didn't realize this was a romance novel, or I wouldn't have bought it, but I'm so glad I did. I haven't read romance novels since I was a teenager, but this one is at the top of the genre. It still has the requisite elements of the romance novel, however, the heroine is clever, witty, and anything but weak and helpless. There is lots of humor, lots of action and suspense, and less predictability than the usual romance. The narration is fabulous as well. Pure entertainment!
I love books!
I'm not even sure how I came across this book and it was my first with this author. It was an enjoyable listen. It was a bit more senuous than I expected but in the end that didn't distract from the story. The book grew on me as I progessed through it. The historical part was good as well.
