A lord with two lives, a woman with a broken heart, a scandalous bargain, and a second chance for love…
Cameron, Lord Deverall, appears to be a completely dissolute dandy, a favorite at London’s fanciest parties, relied upon to speak of nothing serious. In reality, he is a member of the Zodiac, England’s elite spy ring. He can’t let anyone close enough to him learn the truth—especially not his lovely, estranged wife. Unfortunately, he needs her for his next mission.
Lady Genevieve hasn’t seen her maddening husband in three years. Heartbroken after catching him in a scandalous encounter, Gen tossed him out and turned her attention to her heart’s solace: helping London’s poorest children. If she can’t have a family of her own, she’ll be a mother to the world, without Cameron at her side.
But fate brings Cameron and Genevieve together once again, when he offers her a deal she can’t refuse. All she needs to do is let Cameron back into her life for a little while…just long enough to uncover his darkest secrets. Just long enough to learn they’re being pursued by a shadowy nemesis. Just long enough to realize she’s never stopped loving him.
The seventh novel in the Secrets of the Zodiac, a series of historical romances: Featuring sexy storylines, complex characters, and international intrigue, set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars.
I enjoyed this addition to the Zodiac series. The spy story, Cameron’s mission, while not as heart pounding as some of the others in the series, is interesting. There are some twists, turns, and a few surprises. Even more interesting is the story of Cam and Gen’s relationship, the heart of the story. The characters in this story are very well done. Cam’s personas are a story by themselves. Gen is caring and devoted to her charity, but still a little impulsive and prone to jump to conclusions. I like Quinn and the other secondary characters. Mireille is an interesting surprise. Even Pandora shows up. This is a nice story and the ending is delightful. I recommend it and the Zodiac series.
