Publisher's Summary

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 upon a crucial piece of the puzzle, making her indispensable to the mission. But can two proud hearts negotiate a ceasefire when cooperation matters most?

Very enjoyable

I love this book. I love that once they figure out their relationship there is no more will-they/won't-they. The drama comes from their circumstances and the spy world and not one person misunderstanding the other.

Exciting story - I love the jonquils

I really enjoyed the relationship of Phillip and Sorros. The Jonquil family is one of my favorite series. Listening to Luone Ingram narrate is always a pleasure. She does such an amazing job with the voices.

cringeworthy misunderstandings overcome

I did enjoy this story. That being said, there were moments when Philip in his dandy guise was so hurtful and dense I cringed. I have an invisible disability, and I have definitely encountered people who say things that are hurtful that they regretted saying once they knew, and it's a crappy feeling. I wish people would just be less critical in general. I felt like Sorrel was more forgiving than I have been. I don't think I could ever connect romantically to someone who said such hurtful things. Even though Philip did not know he was picking at her disability, he was still picking at her for no reason. Yes, it fit his disguise persona, but it was still more awful than it needed to be. I also worry more about these two than Eden's other couples I have read so far, because they have communication issues that we didn't see resolved.

Like the story, not the narration

I have listened to many of these books from the author. I enjoy the story, but the narration is lacking. I expected a British accent for the narration as well as the voices of the characters. I couldn’t even finish the book. I’ll read it on my own.
