All of her life, Holly has dreamed of adventure and heroics. Indeed, she would far rather be a spy for the British against Napoleon, like her twin brother, Noel, than make her London debut. That is, until she meets Hunt, the handsome Marquess of Vandover. After a whirlwind courtship, they are married on Christmas Eve--Holly's (and Noel's) birthday. Holly is deeply in love, and her new husband's career in the Foreign Office allows her to rub shoulders with diplomats and ambassadors, feeding her love of adventure. The future seems full of promise until her inept attempts to assist her husband in his career--and become a heroine in her own right--leads her to trust the wrong person. Suddenly Holly is plunged into a terrible conflict of loyalties, where she must choose between saving her nearly-broken marriage--and her beloved brother's life!

Wonderful Story - anytime! Wow, where to start? I really loved this book, had me so uncomfortable at times, I would put the Nook down, do something for awhile, but would have to hurry back because I couldn't stay away. The story will be tugging on your heart, you will feel sad, happy and anyother emotion. I couldn't believe how Ms. Hiatt, drew me into the story. I felt like I was peaking in on our character's lives, sitting with them in their rooms, that is how vivid she writes. I wish their was an epilogue though, because I wanted to see what the future held for them. I loved most of the secondary character's too. I can't believe this book is only $.99, well worth the experience of Ms. Hiatt's writing.(ljb)
