After a failed abduction attempt, Lady Rachel is sent into hiding on her uncle’s estate near the sleepy village of Rockcliffe on the shores of Scotland. As she struggles to cope with the nightmares of her past, she unwittingly stumbles into even greater danger than she left behind. And this time, Shadow isn’t around to save her.

Luke Beckett, the Marquess of Downshire, was content running his stud farm in solitude, far from the scheming of the devious women of Society. That is, until his neighbor’s infuriatingly contrary niece rides into his life. Hiding behind the guise of a common horse trainer, he begins to form a peculiar friendship with Lady Rachel, without the constraints of his title. However, the longer the ruse continues, the more Luke realizes there is much more at stake than just their friendship.

With the looming threat of a French invasion, Luke and Rachel must work together to stop the tangled web of treachery before it is too late. When the truth is finally revealed, will they have the strength to trust each other with their hearts, or will the fear of rejection destroy their relationship before it has a chance to begin?

My Review

Oh, what a tangled mess leaving out a bit of information can become. With every book in this series, its get better and better. Laura just gives you more characters to love and nail-biting adventure that brings the spies together again. I couldn’t put it down from the moment Rachel started talking on the way to her uncle’s home. I knew it was going to be fun and a wild adventure. Their first meeting is one of the best I have seen and makes it clear they are going to be put through it all. I loved the twist on his ruse with how many people were involved and why. As with the other books, you will not see anything coming and will find yourself cheering, laughing, and crying throughout the story. Many answers are in this book, but just as many new questions to keep you asking for more.

Rachel definitely has been through it all, but it hasn’t killed her heart of gold. She is a woman that makes her own choices and is not your typical Lady on the ton. I was excited to see her get her own story and get to know her more. I loved that she wanted to help everyone, but wouldn’t hesitate to lay into them as needed. She didn’t give up easily and did things she never imagined she would have to.

Luke has a hard shell and won’t win you over right away, but you will love him as you get to know him. He hates what society expects and wants to avoid marriage and women for the most heartbreaking reasons. I loved that he didn’t realize how much he could scare people and when he was cornered by his siblings. He would give up everything for her even if it meant himself.

I will never get tired of the Beckett family or Mr. Larson. I hope to see more of Rachel’s cousin because of his story and David’s sister because she seems like she will be fun.

Freed from the clutches of her cruel, traitorous mother and impostor husband, Lady Camden wants to rebuild her fractured life. But the years of terror and pain she endured at their hands continue to grip her heart in an iron vice. Refusing to stray from the refuge of her country estate, Kate tentatively agrees to an unusual alliance with the new Lord Camden, being mindful to keep her trust, and her heart, firmly safeguarded.

Adrien, the Earl of Camden, had lost everything he held dear while working undercover in France as an agent of the Crown, known only as Hawk. Now an earl, he wants only to repair his tattered, lonely life. His efforts are interrupted, however, when he is called to accept another assignment: Stop French spies from passing a bill in Parliament that will eliminate British aid in the war against Napoleon.

When Kate’s past pulls her into a web of treachery and deceit, a life she is wholly unprepared for, Adrien must use any means necessary to stop the French spies from succeeding in their evil designs and keep her safe. When the truth is finally revealed, will Lady Camden be strong enough to seize her own future and happiness, or will her heart be too shattered to ever love a spy?

My Review

As always Laura will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat as you are thrown into yet another thrilling spy adventure! This one continues not long after the ending of the last one and brings everyone together again. Its not only the journey of catching the spies but of learning to love and trust again. I was hooked from the start because it was clear that he loved her and wanted to help her in every way. In no way did I see who was behind everything or the crazy reasons for some of it coming. The wedding scene tops all others I have loved with its own little twists. Serious book hangover with this one and hope there is more to the series soon.

Kate is stronger than she realizes and needs help to find her voice again. Her emotions and trauma of what happened rule her at times, but she is a favorite of mine. She didn’t wither away and everyone around her wanted to help her. I loved when she started acting like a spy without fulling realizing it.

Adrien wears his heart on his sleeve without knowing it. I loved how thought about things and his use of a sledgehammer made him a favorite. He could so easily transform and convince people of anything that you almost believe it yourself. When did what he did before the wedding I loved him more.

This is a must read series!

Lord Jonathon Beckett’s mission is simple: retrieve Lady Hannah and place her under the protection of the Crown. But he isn’t prepared for the havoc she inflicts on his world, making him question whether his duty as an agent of the Crown should always come before his heart.
Lady Hannah’s father has uncovered evidence exposing a French traitor to the Crown. Willing to do anything to silence him, the traitor’s primary target has become Lady Hannah. Keeping her safe means locking her away from Society, but she refuses to stand idly by, letting others put their lives on the line to protect her. Instead, she will stop at nothing to learn to defend herself, even at the risk of losing Lord Jonathon’s protection, or his affections.
With a sinister scheme in play to collapse the English government from within, Lord Jonathon must protect Lady Hannah from the French spies intending to use her as a pawn in their game of treachery. But can he protect her from herself?

My Review

*I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review

This is a favorite series!!! The story counties with trying to bring down the spy in this one and it even more thrilling than the last one. I was on the edge of my seat not knowing what was going to happen or how it was going to happen. It was clear from the moment they met that they were perfect for each other. I loved seeing so many from the last one and how they all worked together. I held my breath when they were talking to his mother and when they were on the ship. There was a twist at every turn with many things. The ending was great and I can’t wait for the next one!

Hannah is not a weak girl that will just sit and wait to be saved or see what happens. I loved her right away because she did what she had to and took to it like it had been her whole life. She was determined to learn to take care of herself and not be told what to do at every turn. The cover is a perfect example of her.

Jonathon was going to finish his mission, but never thought he would lose his heart in the process. I loved that he kept messing up when talking to her and that everyone could see what he couldn’t. He handled everything that was thrown at him very well and stayed calm most of the time. I would not want to get on his bad side.

Born with a perfect memory, Lady Elizabeth Beckett has become one of the world’s most notorious spies, despite being the daughter of a duke. She is shielded only by her code name: Shadow. When young ladies of High Society begin disappearing from London, Eliza has no doubt who is orchestrating these crimes; a heinous man she has been investigating for years. Vowing to save them before they are sold to the highest bidder, she must risk everything to stop him.

Lord Sinclair was perfectly content being the second son of a marquess, but when his brother is murdered, he is thrust into a position he has not been prepared for and does not desire. As an agent for the Crown, he is expected to retire now that he is the heir, but he’s been granted special permission for one more mission… to obtain justice for his murdered brother.

Used to keeping secrets, Lady Eliza and Lord Sinclair must learn to open up to each other when they are assigned as partners to bring down the same ruthless man and his brutal empire of abduction and slavery. As Eliza’s tainted past becomes too much for her to bear alone, can she learn to trust her new partner with her secrets, her life, and possibly her heart?

My Review

*I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review

I am hooked on this series! I couldn’t put it down and then had to talk about it. The way it opens will instantly pull you in and you will never know what is coming next. I loved that instant connection between them and how they really helped each other. I almost dropped my book at the twist about her and then again with the one about her mother. I was on the edge of my sea when she was on the ship but had to cheer with how it ended. I loved that there were backstories for Martha and Mr. Lawson because they are favorites of mine. I can’t wait for the next one!

Eliza is an extremely smart and independent woman, but she is haunted by what she had to do. I loved her right away because she was very real about things and that she could throw a dagger. I felt for her because she needed help to understand what happened and to get past it, but she didn’t trust anyone fully with her heart.

Benedict is a man that is very understanding and determined to find justice one way or another for his brother. He was a natural charmer, but in a good way and knew when he was wrong. I loved that he didn’t even bat an eye at what she told him and that he knew what his heart wanted right away.
