Vermillion Lee Durant is well versed in the art of seduction and determined to remain loyal to the destiny she was born to fulfill. But to Captain Caleb Tanner, a British officer hunting a spy who has been leaking information to the French, she may be more than the flirtatious young woman she seems. Assigned to uncover the truth about Vermillion and her aunt, Caleb poses as a groom at the Durant racing stables -- and fights an attraction to Vermillion that may cloud his judgment and threaten his heart.

Both captivated and annoyed by the handsome, arrogant groom, Vermillion vows to resist him -- knowing she must choose allegiance to her family over the desires Caleb has awakened. But passion and truth cannot always be denied, even for two lovers who are masters at keeping secrets.

Good story ! Ending could have been better! More play between heroine & villain Did like hero being crazy for heroine, murder mystery, & up in the air decision where or not heroine would become like her aunt! Didn't like heroine giving up on hero with out being forced to & didn't like unnecessary sex scene at the very end! Was redunant! Took away from ending Companionship & nice conversation is more important than sex

In 1809 in the outer rim of a sprawling London, Vermillion Lee Durant sadly realizes that her training period is over. She must select her first protector as a courtesan chip off the old block as her aunt who raised her did before her. She would rather be Lee, riding horses in the countryside, but she knows that her destiny as the third generation Durant courtesan is to be Vermillion........... Secret Agent Captain Caleb Tanner seeks a traitor. He goes undercover as a groom at Parklands, the estate owned by Vermillion¿s aunt. Caleb believes that Vermillion is a hardened, avaricious but well paid whore. That is until he meets Lee. As he and Lee fall in love, Caleb knows the mission remains first, but plans to become Vermillion¿s first protector. However, she needs more from him now that love is part of the relationship............. SECRET WAYS is an exciting Regency romantic suspense tale that sub-genre fans will fully appreciate. The story line is loaded with action, but also slowed down at the bit by the girth of detail on horses. The lead couple is a delightful duo especially the almost schizoid lead female protagonist as Lee battles with Vermillion for supremacy before Caleb¿s love enables her to enjoy both sides of her complex personality. The traitor investigation adds the depth that will leave readers applauding Kat Martin for a fine novel.............. Harriet Klausner

Vermillion Durant's destiny seems to be that of her beautiful and famous relatives, that of a courtesan. Even her name is spicy and enticing. Yet she prefers to think of herself as simply "Lee", a much more innocent and free young lady than she is expected to be. However, she is resigned to her fate, believing that is what her beloved aunt needs her to be. .......... However, Vermillion is suspected of being more than a temptress, but also of being a spy. To uncover the truth, Caleb Tanner will masquerade as a simple groom and try to get close enough to see whether or not she is responisible for secrets making their way to France. Caleb is shocked to learn that Lee is nothing like what he expected. The real woman is someone that he can not help but love. Vermillion finds herself attracted to this man as well, but believes such a match would never work. Even when she finds her true identity, the situation appears hopeless. ......... ***** The complexities of war and of the 'ton are equal, and when meshed become a tangle that only skillful minds can fathom. With Ms. Martin's long heralded skill at delivering a sensual romance, this novel gives readers a most unique heroine. Wise and innocent simultaneously, Vermillion is somewhat like the younger days of Elizabeth Taylor, while Caleb is the kind of hero readers have grown to love. Fans will not be short changed. ***** REVIEWED BY AMANDA KILLGORE.
