I love Kasey Michaels and her stories. She tells stories with a lot of heart and throws in some intrigue to keep things interesting. Her heroes are always swoon-worthy and have a few flaws to make them real. Her heroines are strong women who know their own minds. She builds a story that takes readers along on adventure. Cooper Townsend has survived Napoleon only to return home and be blackmailed. Someone has been writing about him and threatens him with information that will discredit the king if the third volume of the tale is published. Cooper could do without the notoriety that these stories have created for him, but knowing the author threatens the crown is too much. No one can know the secret that Cooper is keeping or what exactly happened on that field in France. Cooper will do anything he can to keep the monarchy safe from scandal especially when the revelation of this particular secret could end in his death. Daniella Foster is the bane of her mother’s existence. If there is trouble to be found, Dany will find it. She can always find something to do, but it is usually not what society will deem proper and Dany never has trouble speaking her mind. She is so glad that the latest family crisis has nothing to do with herself. Rather her sister is being blackmailed by someone for some inappropriate letters that she wrote. Dany has to help her sister and hatches a plan to do just that. Running into Cooper is a fortunate event especially when it is revealed that Cooper might have the exact same blackmailer so it is in his best interests to help Dany. Dany and Cooper embark on an adventure to uncover the blackmailer and save the day. Dany’s unique sense of propriety challenges Cooper at every turn. He finds her equally enchanting and terrifying. He never knows what she will say or do and has to figure out a way to help her while still keeping her safe. Dany has no intention of being excluded or left behind while Cooper goes about figuring out who the blackmailer is. She has every intention of helping him. The battle of wills ignites a passion between them that cannot be denied. Every minute of this story is a delight. There are no moments that drag or seem unnecessary. We watch the dynamics between Dany and Cooper as they fight and fall. We know before they do the depths of their feelings. We search with them for the blackmailer and hope that they can save the day before things get too difficult. This is the second book in a series, but you do not need to read the books in order or to have read the first book to enjoy this one. The characters of the first book appear in this story, but the actions and adventures of the first book have no role in this particular adventure. This book really does stand on its own.
