Overview

A rare beauty, raised in the exotic heart of the mysterious East, Mari Sinclair knows it’s time to end her career as a British spy when she narrowly avoids a brush with death. Unfortunately, there are those who think otherwise—and they are not above using blackmail to keep Mari in the game.

Saddled with a handsome, duty-obsessed "minder" to ensure that she completes—and survives—one last mission, Mari is incensed . . . for her guardian, Major Bennett Prestwood, is simply too dedicated, too unbending, and too disarmingly attractive. But in the face of dark secrets and deadly treacheries, as the true peril to Mari is slowly revealed, loyal soldier Bennett realizes that to save and win this extraordinary woman, he will have to do the unthinkable and break the rules—rules that passion and desire have suddenly, irrevocably changed.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Randol’s masterful debut visits 1815 Constantinople, where a soldier finds love with a spirited spy. Maj. Bennett Prestwood is eager to return to England after surviving the battle of Waterloo, but instead he’s ordered to travel to Constantinople to protect secret agent Mari Sinclair, daughter of an opium-addicted British archeologist and a Greek freedom fighter. Her artistic sketches hide depictions of military forts, and she hopes her efforts will help the Greeks gain independence from the Turks. Bennett is completely surprised by his physical yearning for Mari as well as his reluctant admiration for her fierce independence and unwavering loyalty. As their attraction sizzles and evolves into a deeper love, their relationship becomes fraught with misunderstandings and allegations of betrayal. Randol takes the Regency reader to a unique locale—without ever descending into racial stereotype—and spins a tale replete with mystery, espionage, and memorable romance. Agent: Kevan Lyon, Marsal Lyon Literary Agency. (Feb.)

    Mari is the daughter of a Greek slave and an English archaeologi

    Mari is the daughter of a Greek slave and an English archaeologist living in the Ottoman Empire. Bennett is an English officer just done with the Napoleonic wars when he is given orders to protect Mari as she spies for the Crown. Exotic locale, fascinating times, mystery, intrigue, and a love story. What more could you ask for. This is a very well written, fast paced story by debut author Anna Randol. I will definitely check out future offerings from this author.

    I loved this new debut book by Anna Randol. The book begins as Major Bennett Prestwood is on his way home from years of fighting at Waterloo. His commanding officer in the ranks wants him to do one last job that involves important military information that is needed. Major Bennett is to seek and protect a British spy named Mari Sinclair. Even though someone tried to kill her, she is blackmailed in to continuing her spying duties. When Mari meets Major Prestwood, she thinks he's too dedicated, too unbending and far too handsome. Boy do the sparks fly when these two come together. The book locale takes place in the exotic Constantinople. I really like how the author details the countryside that is so different from the usual historical romance. Thank you Ms Randol for this great read. I look forward to the next book
