Publisher's Summary

When the border between Floriana and the United States is opened after 80 years, Nathan and Caroline visit as official tourists and unofficial spies. Escorted around picturesque turn-of-the-century New Orleans, they quickly realize they are being prevented from seeing the real city - and evidence of an incipient revolution.

After two assassination attempts, Nathan begins to question his loyalty to a king who may have deliberately placed them in harm's way. The pair are determined to find out who is trying to kill them and why.

A hurricane interrupts their search, and Nathan believes Caroline has drowned in the raging waters. Grief-stricken, he joins the revolution where he must face his deepest fears. Meanwhile, Caroline refuses to believe her rescuers when they tell her Nathan fell in the battle of New Orleans. Penniless and alone, she falls desperately ill.

For once, Nathan and Caroline's paranormal abilities fail to help. Will their love for each other be enough to reunite them?

Action Packed Adventure

Nathan and Caroline's adventures continue, this time as man and wife. This is Book 2 in the series and it is helpful to have read or listened to Book 1. The pair definitely has a knack for finding trouble and their latest exploits are even more action packed than the previous book. I'm really starting to love this series and can't wait to listen to the next installment. Ashley Holt's performance was well done and I liked the continuity of having the same narrator throughout the series. I enjoyed A Question of Loyalty and would recommend it.

if a woman could wear trousers πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚β€β€

well what am I thinking about this book?
I started to listen to this, and the first line was absolutely hilarious.... it was a great book with it very nice story... the narrator is quite well as in the previous book of the series I'm very excited about the third book... and actually the thing I like the most in this particular book was the cynical parts that was attached to so many characters it's made me feel like all this specific century was full of cynical person this is so nice...

unforseen adventure

This was a very interesting story. It's about before the United States was joined. I enjoyed the story. The author and narrator did a great job.

More open boarders

We are getting to cross the boarders of the States, but there are dangers from people who still don't want the boarders open. This was a wonderful book, but I highly recommend that you pick up the first in the series before listening to this one. While there is some back history, the story picks up where the first book left off.

This is wher ethings get crazy

Book 2 in the series is action packed, and it makes me always wonder how any one person could have enough stamina to get through all these trials! Each book has an HEA, so not quite a cliffhanger, but you definitely need to listen to all 3 books.

The Adventure Continues

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This series that tells of an alternate view of American history is very well developed. This time the couple are finally able to legally leave the country and their adventures or misadventures continue. They visit a place cal Floriana. A combination of Florida and Louisiana. There the king is hogging all of the riches and only allowing a few people to become rich. The couple are given a guided tour that only shows them what the kings assistant wants them to see. Their friendly shapeshifting friends make an appearance and a gate opens up to help them win the war. There is also a flood, rescue, and a baby on the way. My only issue is the narrator. This bothered me in the first book but it seems worse in this one. She stops in the middle of sentences and her cadence is so far off that it brings you out of the story waiting for her to finish the sentence.

Fun story, ultra-feminine heroine too feminine

I wanted her to kick a little more ass! However, that was not to be in this story. If you liked the first book, you'll like this one too. It is a fun story.

The narrator (or editor) still had pushed sentences so close together you can't tell where one ends and the next begins.

A Historical American Paranormal Adventure

Nate and Caroline's adventure continues where the previous book in the series ended. This time they intentionally find themselves south of the border, in Floriana. In this historical, fantasy version of the United States, several of the southern states had been locked out of the US to prevent the spread of the plague. Our characters are part of the movement to reopen the borders, some 80 years on, with the blessings of the American monarch. Their sudo-holiday to Floriana has the dual purpose of being the couple's holiday and their opportunity to explore Floriana to report to the king.

It should be that simple, but it isn't. Between the attempts to murder them, the annoying guard, the unpredictable weather and all around craziness, this book is an adventure more than a romance. The political climate changes as the plot progresses and with that there are big decisions to be made.

I enjoyed the adventurousness of the story. Sandy Burney has a fantastic ability to weave the fantasty with reality to make an interesting, almost realistic tapestry. That is, if werewolves and other people with supernatural abilities existed!
