Sophie Atherton knows when someone is lying. The covert agent is an expert at deception—she can spy a falsehood a mile away. Working undercover as a medium's assistant, she is well aware that her employer is a charlatan. So when dashing archaeologist Gavin Stanwyck seeks out the spiritualist's services, Sophie knows he's after much more than a long-lost heirloom.
All Gavin Stanwyck wants is justice for his murdered friend, but his search so far has come up empty. Posing as a treasure hunter, he seeks out a man who claims he can commune with the dead—a man Gavin suspects played a role in his friend’s death.
Complicating matters even more is the medium's beautiful assistant. She's a distraction Gavin can ill afford and a temptation he’s unable to resist. As danger closes in, he'll risk everything to protect the woman who's dared to touch his heart.
Each book in the Her Majesty’s Most Secret Service series is STANDALONE:

I received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review. Enjoyed this book. Its part mystery, spy and romance all in one book. Sophie an agent for the Crown and Gavin an explorer and rich bachelor meet and somewhat form a partnership to discover the reason behind some murders made to look like accidents. There is romance in the book and a HEA ending. It is a good read and enjoyable.
