Angelique is confused by the assignment as this is beneath her usual type mission. She also is bewildered by her attraction to Nate as he makes her feel like a woman. As they fall in love, Nate and Angelique realize that catching the culprit is not easy and will take care sleuthing to find him and apprehend the embezzler. If they are not extremely careful, unknown adversaries will kill the pretend couple who want to make their relationship real. You Only Love Once is an exciting late Regency romantic espionage thriller that grips the audience from the moment the lead couple meet. Nate is a solid lead, but Angelique owns the story line as what happened to her as a child and her late mom near Paris during the French Reign of Terror has dominated her life ever since until Nate. Although the plot at times decelerates, historical romantic suspense fans will enjoy Caroline Linden's entertaining tale. Harriet Klausner

A refreshing read: it's so nice to read a historical romance where the heroine is fully capable and the hero isn't so domineering as to be considered abusive. Angelique is a skilled English spy of French origin who speaks multiple languages. Nate is an American shipping heir who has hidden skills of his own. He's enough of a man to recognize that Angelique holds the upper hand and he lets her do her job. The author respects the reader enough to not make Angelique a virgin hold out but also not make her sexual past a plot point. The conflict feels real, the dilemma seems insurmountable right up until the end.
