Maximilian at first wants no part of it, but in the end reluctantly agrees to decode the message, a message that basically asks The Flower to become a double agent, when she refuses they kidnap her little sister, to force her hand. She must again and again, ask Maximilian for his help. Before long they are entangled in a web of deceit, treachery and of course romance.
Such an interesting concept for a historical romance novel. It was an intriguing read, even throwing in a bit of mystery. I wanted to give it 4 stars, but the thing is, it just seemed to be so slow in places, but just at the point I was ready to give up it would pick back up, so just be aware that the characters are well written, the history well researched and the plot good, but there are just a lot of lags. Guys I loved that the hero of this book was kind of a beta ya know, he wasn’t the Lord, he was a second son making his own way, with an interesting career. And I just loved that the heroine is a thief and opera dancer and not a Lady of the Ton. It just made for a more unusual, detailed and unique story line.
This is the 3rd book in the series, but can be read as a standalone. This was the first book I read by Alyssa Alexander, but I don’t think it will be my last.
