As Director of The War Office, Stuart McKenzie, has proven himself capable of making difficult decisions in times of crisis and keeping government secrets safe. When he walks in on someone ransacking his study he quickly moves to apprehend them, only to be tossed on his back as the burglar escapes into the night.
Cassie’s father has become a pawn in the fight against Napoleon. When the enemy kidnaps him, she will do anything it takes to get him back – including stealing government secrets from Stuart McKenzie, the Director of the War Office.
When Cassie is caught, she reluctantly agrees to Mack’s assistance as there is something far more sinister going on. As Mack embarks on his mission, he will find that enemies are often closer than one would think and that sometimes your ally will come in the least likely form. When passion erupts between Mack and Cassie, they find their lives forever altered. But just as they believe their lives to be free of danger, a new threat is lurking about, promising to rip their happiness away from them. Will they be able to trust each other enough to defeat this new threat, or will they be torn apart for all eternity?

I loved the first book in the series, good characters, plot and sensual tension. This book, not so much. Missed the mark with an annoying heroine who didn' t use her supposed intelligence to analyze situations. I questioned why the hero loved her! I never understood why arguing and anger preclude sexual tension between the main characters. A good editor would have caught this serious flaw in the story. Being said, I will try the last book in this series. After all, not every book can be perfect!
Did not puzzle out the bad guy until the end! Exciting, sexy, and engrossing! Everything you want in a great book.
