“Quick pacing, witty dialogue, and charmingly original characters set Jeffries’ books apart” (Publishers Weekly, starred review), and The Secret of Flirting is the next thrilling romance in the bestselling Sinful Suitors series.
The moment spymaster Baron Fulkham meets the stunning Princess Aurore of Chanay, he’s positive her royal persona is a ruse and that she’s actually Monique Servais, the mysterious actress he met three years before in Dieppe. But as he pursues his suspicions, he uncovers a plot of attempted assassination and betrayal that could very well destroy his career, expose his own secrets...and ruin the woman he’s rapidly coming to love.
The Secret of Flirting is a sizzling historical romance filled with fast-paced storytelling, an enchanting heroine, and a sexy hero, perfect for fans of Regency romance.
In Jeffries's fast-paced fifth Sinful Suitors Regency (after The Pleasures of Passion), sparks fly between an actress and a baron. Gregory Vyse, Baron Fulkham, is tired of being a spy and hopes to garner a more prestigious position with the government. He's also one of the noblemen who will help decide the new ruler of Belgium. Gregory meets one of the contenders, Princess Aurore of Chanay, and soon realizes she is Mademoiselle Monique Servais, an actress he met several years before. He's concerned that exposing her as an impostor could harm his political aspirations, and begins looking into why she is posing as the princess. As he becomes increasingly drawn to the intelligent, beautiful woman, he learns that she's the target of an assassin. Seeking to keep Monique safe by inviting her to his country home, Gregory uncovers some of her secrets and their mutual attraction culminates in sensuous love scenes. The mystery behind Monique's deception, coupled with the sinister suspense around a determined killer, add allure to this expertly plotted novel and its magnetic characters.
A great read!
Ooooh! Intrigue and hot sexual tension are abound in The Secret of Flirting.
Spymaster Gregory, Baron of Fulkam, has to have his wits about him when he meets Princess Anne, he’s sure he’s seen her before on the stage as she actually is being replaced by a actress named Monique, a lady he’d met several years before.
The story opens up to intrigue and a clever mystery develops with danger lurking for Monique and the Princess. A tight drama and hot romance are in the cards for this excellent plot line and Ms. Jeffries characters were excellent for the story as usual.
A story not to be missed. I highly recommend it!
