    "Nice.."
    Any additional comments?

    This was a really good read. It got a little boring for a minute but came back soon enough. I liked Jess and Sabastian a lot. Could barely stand Claudia or Quintin. And loved Aunt Eunice. I was surprised at one of the bad guys, and disappointed but they both really got what was coming to them. An entertaining book with sexual tension and great sex.

    As to the narrator: As always, Ms. Potter did a wonderful job. I never get tired of listening to her..

    Story
    "Intense!"

    This one was a more intense than the first two books in this awesome series, but still very entertaining. If you're up for something deeper and more gritty than the usual, you might enjoy this.

    Jess Whitby's father, the owner of a shipping company, is accused of selling secrets to Napoleon, but she is determined to discover the real traitor and save her father from the gallows. Having spent her early life on the dangerous streets of London as a thief, she has skills that most young ladies do not. She sets about using those skills, and her network of old connections, to ferret out the truth.

    Capt. Sebastian Kennett has his reasons for wanting to see Josiah Whitby hang. But when he meets Jess, he finds himself falling hard for her.

    The British intelligence gang is all here, and I loved seeing those characters again.

    The players in this one felt more real and the stakes were higher than the first two. I'm very glad to have experienced it, but it wasn't an easy romance. This is a novel of complexity, and there were times when it got so intense I wanted to put it down, but I couldn't.

    Joanna Bourne continues to impress me with her creativity. I'm a big fan.

    "Good book, great narration"
    Any additional comments?

    Another engaging, can't put it down, story from Joanna Bourne. The story is well written and the characters are engaging. The narrator is the icing on the cake: Kirsten Potter is excellent with dialects and voices.
