"The perfect road romance." Discover the acclaimed fourth book in the Fallen Angels historical romance series by New York Times bestselling author Mary Jo Putney!
A master spy with the face of a fallen angel and a darkly heroic past, Lord Robert Andreville returns to his ancestral home in Yorkshire after a dozen harrowing years spying against Napoleon. But nothing soothes his ravaged spirit until a determined young beauty sweeps into his life.
...and the Runaway
Half Mohawk and all American, Maxima Collins is a wary stranger in a strange land, but she will let nothing halt her journey to London to learn the truth about her father's sudden death--not even a self-appointed guardian who is all lazy charm and dangerous skill.
Together they travel across England, evading pursuers and circling each other in a dance of desire, where truth is elusive and only passion is sure. Then dark secrets shatter their idyll--and only love has the power to heal the past.

I enjoyed this book very much. The characters were fun. Maxie and Robin are both very strong it made for a great read. The side stories are worthwhile as well.
