The synopsis:

Someone wants Alyce Hythe dead…

Shunned from London society for being the daughter of England’s most notorious spy, Alyce Hythe desires only to clear her father’s name. For years, she has been hidden away from all prying eyes, given a new identity and told to forget who she was. But strange things have been happening causing old rumors to once more be whispered. Long has Lord Julian Casvelyn lived with guilt brought on when his brother was murdered by England’s most infamous traitor. But one eventful night has changed everything Lord Julian believed about his brother’s death. Never did he suspect the woman he has just saved from certain harm is the daughter of that man. Now Julian is caught in midst of a conspiracy and desire for that woman. Thrown together by fate, the two search for answers long denied them and along the way discover a love that can free them both.

My thoughts:
( this book is not suited for YA readers)

This book was so much fun to read. It had excitement and danger from page one, not to mention all the steamy love that drifted of the pages. I love a historical romance with a little danger thrown in for good measure! 

Our heroine is young and in hiding and has been for most her life because her father is known as the most hated man in England and well even though he is dead she is living with the consequences. Then somehow she seems to be found out and is rescued by the one man who probably hated her name more than anyone. But she is sure her father was innocent and soon Julian our hero of the story starts to realize that too. Then their search for the truth begins. 

I love that the sparks started to fly immediately! Sometimes that is just right. I also liked a lot that you were to keep guessing for quite a while who that bad guy was, that is a sure winner to keep a reader´s interest. Julian is such a lovable character who just falls flat on his face when he meets the stubborn Alyce. Alyce on the other hand fights a bit with her feelings and she also have a loyalty conflict that almost tear her apart. 

This was a great read that I enjoyed a lot. It was exciting and fun to read and I recommend to everyone who is historical romance fan!
