Spice Level: 1/2
Prue’s job is to uncover secrets, but she hides a few of her own. When she is framed for murder and cast into Newgate, her one-time lover comes to her rescue. Will revealing what she knows help in their hunt for blackmailers, traitors, and murderers? Or threaten all she holds dear?
Enquiry agent David solves problems for the ton, but will never be one of them. When his latest case includes his legitimate half-brothers as well as the woman who left him months ago, he finds the past and the circumstances of his birth difficult to ignore. Danger to Prue makes it impossible.
This book was a bit different from most that I read, but I really enjoyed it. It was like a movie that you don’t want to take your eyes off for fear of missing something. There are many twists and surprises throughout the books and they all connect to each other. There were parts I loved like scenes where Prue defended herself and how she and David were with each other. The murder case was one that I was not able to figure out at all until it was solved. The ending was great and I loved how all questions were answered.
Prue is an amazing character. She is great at her job, keeps her family safe, and can take down a man if needed. I was completely shocked by her secrets and didn’t see them coming. It took a lot for her to trust someone fully, but it was always for a reason.
David was also amazing. He always seemed open and didn’t judge anyone for their pasts or what they were forced to do to survive. I loved that he got along with his brothers in some ways. His past was interesting, but it never got in the way.
There are many great characters in the book.Gren and Charity were favorites of mine. At times it did seem to drag on, but then it would pick up with a new twist or information.
