Seduction abounds in Sharon Cullen’s steamy historical romance! For the Crown’s top agents, love is a hazard best avoided–until an unforgettable affair exposes their undercover hearts.
Sebastian Addison has a powerful secret. To society he is the Earl of Claybrook, the patriarch who raised his siblings after the death of their parents. But to the king, Sebastian is Britain’s top spy–a position that has taken an emotional toll on him. Contessa Gabrielle Marciano has also been living a lie, her title a cover devised by the Office of Intelligence. The femme fatale was plucked from a life of crime and prostitution and trained to restrain her passionate nature. Until she meets the earl.
For three deeply sensual days and nights, Sebastian and Gabrielle drop their masks, indulging in pleasures that seem too good to be true. Then the lovers go their separate ways. Seven months later they reunite when inside sources report that an English aristocrat has been aiding France in a plot to topple the Crown. Their objective: to find the turncoat. Their greatest challenge: to keep their wild, wounded hearts from derailing a mission of life and death.

As always I want to thank Random House Loveswept and NetGalley for providing us with a copy of this book so that we can bring you this review.
Well we all know I love Sharon Cullen and this series. Well what can I say about Sebastian… that he’s an ass for a big part of this… or how about that I wanted to smack him across the head for denying what he knows in his heart. One of the things that kills me about Sebastian is that he lives the same lifestyle that Gabrielle does and the say he reacts to it is like she’d kept something important from him when all she has done is what she is supposed to do. Now what can I say about Gabrielle other than she is awesome. She fought as a young girl and continues to fight and kick butt as an adult. She is able to come face to face with those who want nothing more than to hurt her and perseveres. I look forward to hearing more about these characters in future books
I give this 5 kisses
Happy reading… Adri
