Publisher's Summary

Rescued by ruin, American heiress Daisy Vanreid is desperate to avoid marriage to the aging aristocrat her abusive father chose for her. She'll do anything, even entrap the notorious Duke of Trent into marriage, to escape her fate. Losing her heart to her handsome husband after the wedding isn't part of the plan. Nothing is as it seems.

An elite spy, Sebastian, the Duke of Trent, is on a mission to unravel bomb plots in England's cities. Forced to wed Daisy as part of his cover, he has no intention of falling in love with a woman suspected of treason. But he's drawn to the feisty beauty he married, and he can't deny the way she makes him feel, even though he knows she could be the enemy he seeks.

Duty versus love

As danger strikes, Sebastian must choose between Daisy and his loyalty to the Crown. And when Daisy discovers the truth at last, will she ever forgive him?

Contains mature themes.

Terrible writing

This story is just a lot of internal monologues. There is one line of dialogue and then 10 minutes of internal thoughts. I keep having to rewind to remember what was last said...it is a waste of time.
The hero has too much angst and the heroine has no motivation for her actions. This was not a good story and overcomplicated a simple idea.
I am not prudish, but even I thought there was just too much sex and not enough character development. I was not sure why they really liked each other, as this "love" seemed to come out of nowhere.
I hated using a credit for this book as the writing was very poor. The narrator did a great job with the little she had to work with. I think I would wait to purchase another book by this author...and let some others review it. I got this book too soon and had no input from other readers.
