This is no ordinary Regency. But I have read about a dozen of Henke's books and I wouldn't call any of them ordinary. This is a story of intrigue. The hero and heroine, Blake an Jeni are spies battling each other in the bedroom and England's enemies in the back alleys of regency London. I think the love scenes in this book are the hottest maybe that she has ever written. Along with those are her usual blend of high adventure and humor. I had to laugh out loud in a couple of spots. Jeni always feels the need to rescue Blake when he really doesn't need or want rescuing. In one instance when he did need help, she does rescue him with the help of the former soldiers who work at the House of Dreams. But in the process she gets so furious with him she almost inadvertently kills him. Believe it or not, that was funny. A quiet little regency this is not. But it is a fun, entertaining read.
