Publisher's Summary

London barrister Jason Jonquil has spent his entire life working to establish his identity as a gentleman, a man of refinement like his father and brothers. But when fiery Spanish beauty Mariposa Thornton walks into his office, he finds himself losing his grasp on his dignified character. The woman is infuriating, pushing him to the limit of his legendary patience. However, her case seems simple enough - a small matter of inheritance. Or so he believes.

Once a well-born lady, Mariposa fought to survive the brutalities of Napoleon's war on Spain. She braved horrific perils and undertook dangerous missions on behalf of those fighting against the invading French army. But her greatest battle still lies ahead: after being separated from her family, Mariposa sets in motion a plan to reunite with her loved ones in England. To avoid drawing the attention of the French, Mariposa dons a carefully crafted persona to conceal her true purpose.

As Jason and Mariposa are drawn together by the case, they come to know the people beneath the masks they both wear. When the truth of Mariposa's quest is revealed, the couple is pulled into a mystery that will test the limits of their courage - and expose the true desire of their hearts.

Another wonderful Jonquil story.

The little glimpse of Jason and Mariposa I saw in a previous book, had me thrilled to finally get to hear their story. And like Sarah's other books, this one was full of love, humor, and heart.
Oh those poor potatoes.

another fantastic book

I have read lots of Sarah Eden books and they are wonderful all the way through. They are well-written, thought-provoking, and entertaining. I particularly love the humor in this book. It kept me rolling with laughter. I can't wait for her next book.

Such a charming story!

This story has all the feels. I laughed out loud and cried in both sorrow and joy. I love how Sarah writes and all the wonderful characters in her stories.

Not for me

The more I listen to audible, the more discerning I am about what I like and cannot tolerate. All the pronouns, shes, shes and more shes. Sorry Ms. Eden, this one is going back.

love the story!

I was disappointed that the narrator wasn't British but she did a great job with voice inflections and the other accents of the characters, well as much of a Spanish accent can be without using the "zeta" because that would be a true Spanish accent.
There were many times that I laughed at the antics of the characters. You understood their plight and wanted them to win. I get that Mariposa's worse nightmare was to come across the Frenchmen who threatened her but that was a bit of a letdown.

Amazing

Out of all of Sarah M Eden’s Lancaster and Jonquil books it’s not my favorite but it is still very good. It’s very funny and entertaining but there are parts that are kind of long.
