Publisher's Summary

Paris, September 1824

Lord Nicholas Asquith needs his wife. Too bad he broke her heart ten years ago. 

Can he resist a second chance at the love he lost? 

When Mariana catches the eye of the man at the center of an assassination plot, Nick puts aside their painful past and enlists her to obtain information by any means necessary, even if it means seducing the enemy agent. 

Even if the thought makes his blood boil. 

Only by keeping his distance from Mariana these last ten years was he able to pretend indifference to her. With every moment spent with her, he feels his tightly held control slipping.

Can she trust the spy who broke her heart? 

Mariana spent the last decade forgetting Nick. Now she has the chance to best him at his own game, an opportunity she can’t resist, even as her view of him begins to shift. Increasingly, she wants nothing more than to seduce her own husband.

It's only a matter of time before mad passion ignites, a passion never convincingly extinguished. A passion that insists on surrendering to the yearning of the flesh and, quite possibly, of the heart.

Author's Debut Is Amazing! I loved it!!

You Are Forever In My Heart, We Will Be Wild And Brave Together

I was hooked right from the first few minutes. I hadn't heard this narrator in this wispy, sexy tone before. I think listeners will love her for what she brings to the story or dislike her for her male voices. That didn't bother me in the least as the story drew me in. The emphasis on words ending in consonants, especially when she said the name NICK. So lush. I had a slight startle each time she read the word FACT as FOCT which sounded too much like the carnal act. And it includes 3 awesome sex scenes.

A tale of heartbreak, betrayal and espionage in 1824 Paris. I could vividly see the scenes the author was painting, the dank streets of old Paris. The sights, the sounds and smells. Mariana is no coy English maiden, but a woman of 28, a mother of twins, and her husband has been killed by French spies.... or has he? And who to believe, who to trust? The web of seduction and lies is not just the week in Paris, but the past 11 years of their lives.

The minor thing that annoyed me was a whirring sound in the background, like a cassette player and it was throughout most of the audio. I noticed when it went away and then when it returned.

Sofie Darling where have you been? We have been waiting for you.
