LOVE AND BETRAYAL...

A cool master of sensuality, Rafael Whitbourne, the Duke of Candover, earned his rakish reputation in the silken boudoirs of London's highborn ladies, never giving away his hand or his heart.

Then a vital mission for his government takes Rafe to Paris to work with the Countess Madga Janos, "the most beautiful spy in Europe." He is appalled to discover that the smoky eyed temptress is no Hungarian countess, but the deceitful doxie who betrayed him a dozen years earlier--the only woman he ever loved, and the only one he's ever despised.

Margot Ashton wants nothing more than to walk away from her turbulent past and the mesmerizing man who ruined her life. But patriotism binds them together in a shadowland of intrigue where a diabolical plot may plunge a continent back into war--and a whirlwind of passion sweeps Margot and Rafe into a shattering passion that cannot be denied.

I would recommend this book since it is a great plot and I did enjoy the love story. I was just not a big fan of the main characters. I liked them, but unlike other characters in the series, I was not as eager to see what would happen or where Ms. Putney would lead them. However, if when you start a series, you need to read every possible book that fits into that world, you won't be disappointed with this one. Like I said, a good read, just not my favorite.

This is the first book of Ms. Putney's that I have read, but it certainly will NOT be the last. Descriptively, her writing is exceptional. It pushed me right into the story, relating to the characters as if I were living amongst them. The heroine is strong and feisty and the hero is equally strong and feisty. They met long before this story took place, and their history was written from an error on both of their parts due to their youthfulness. When they met again it was during a turbulent time after the Napoleonic Wars but while intrigue, political tensions and danger were still running high. Amidst all of that Rafe and Margot managed to rekindle their passion and finally admit to their love for each other. This was an excellent story that kept my interest and made me sigh at the end. Highly recommended!
