Overview

Worlds collide when the bold leader of England's male-only spy school faces off against a spoiled debutante determined to become the country's first lady spy. . .

<CENTER> Resistance Is Futile. . .</CENTER>

Lady Olivia Fairchild has always lived a life of luxury and ease, but she longs for the kind of intrigue that can't be found on a ballroom dance floor. Then Olivia learns she's been accepted as the first female student in England's prestigious spy school. But spy-training is far more grueling than Olivia ever imagined--and her dashing spymaster seems bent on banishing her from the school in record time. . .

<CENTER> When Every Look Brings Them Closer. . .</CENTER>

Sebastian Brooks believes women have no place within the dangerous world of espionage--and he's determined to oust Olivia by whatever means necessary. But even as Sebastian mercilessly taunts her, he finds the sight of Olivia's shapely body gallivanting on horseback is driving him wild. Olivia, too, can feel her longing for Sebastian heating up. Surrendering to her desire could be the most reckless move of her life--but resisting it may be impossible. . .

This is one of the worst romance novels I've ever read. The characters are not well developed, and the story line is very scattered. I would not reccomend buying this book.

This book was awful. The characters were boring. The book itself was boring. The author used the term "my darling" way too many times. While the idea of the book was good, there wasn't enough of a plot. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. Not unless you need help sleeping.

Even though this book had a few problems for me. One being it read like the romance novels of an earlier era, it was an excellent book. I loved how Olivia and Sebastian were always fighting eachother, even when they fell in love.I loved the story that Olivia's mother told her of her father. Olivia's sister Helena has a book coming out later, which I can't wait for. I hope all the sister's get a book. This isn't a keeper for me, but it was worth reading.

As a woman in 2009 when you set your sights high and want to do anything, push yourself to the end of limits and strive to assume an occupation of your choosing that is a possibility. In 1816 that was not the case but this fact did not damper Lady Olivia Fairchild¿s desire for success though nor hinder the dream for her grand ambitions ¿ she wanted to be a spy!

Olivia had a plan to make this happen by outwitting her controlling father, maneuver around the regulations with the head of England¿s Home Security and work with her mother to secure this position and obtain the goal of spy in training. But she never envisioned the person that would block her would be the man that ran the training facility Sir Sebastian Brooks ¿ a man she was attracted to and drawn toward in ways only a woman would be and she was not sure she could dare let these emotions happen for fear they would thwart her end goal.

But a determined Olivia was able to convince even Sebastian and prove that she could do everything as well as the male trainees - swim, shoot a bow and arrow, fence and eventually handle the rigorous of calisthenics. What Olivia never though could happen is that the man, who vexed her so much, threw up obstacles at every opportunity and forced her to be not equal to the men but better was also the man she would fall in love with and could it be that she may even be the one to save his life?

Sebastian for his part was trying to handle this woman he had no want of at his facility but had a burning desire to have in his bed. He knew that she would not take orders and could disrupt the academy as well as his own life and play havoc with his desires. She made him feel whole again and try as he did to resist her at every turn she called to him and in ways he never felt before with another woman.

When Sebastian is called to service for his country it is Olivia that uses her wits about her and comes to his rescue despite direct orders not to. She knows that what she is doing is the right thing and nothing can keep her from this man or her desire to serve her country ¿ both of which she loves.

Sebastian and Olivia have a number of adventures together and what draws them in as a couple is not only the chemistry between them but the confrontation of two high-energy, polar opposite personalities. While Sebastian has served in the military he knows how to follow a direct order and work within the system. Olivia has lead of life of luxury with her family and only knows what she wants and knocks down the walls to achieve it. This encompasses not only her desire to be a spy but to make sure that Sebastian¿s feelings for her not only are about love but loyalty and letting her be what she desires.

After many near misses and an almost death experience all at the hands of Olivia the couple come to realize that they are no good apart and need to be together fighting the enemy as well as each other.
This book is an excellent read for everyone that wonders about the women who came before us and their struggle to obtain their chosen profession. The training scenes were well written and the spy missions were not drug out to slow the book down. I felt the objective was to lay the groundwork for the Regency spy network while also showing how two completely opposite people who find each other impossible to live with but love can find a middle ground for their love and marriage and both ideals were accomplished. The side story of Olivia¿s famil
