Lder brother's untimely death Kenale doesn't trust the French or their femmes fatales He's ready to do what it takes to unmask her even if it means playing a game of seductio Review posted on Got fiction?25 starsI didn't care for this at allMarielle Lyon is a Frenchwoman who has moved to England and carries out many suspect activities She has meetings in dark alleys with smugglers she goes where she pleases without a chaperone she uses her feminine wiles to get her way All these actions are suspect to Viscount Kendale Gavin Norwood a man who’s been watching her for a while and who absolutely believes she’s a French spyMarielle does have secrets many of them in fact but she isn’t about to let Kendale figure them out even if he does save her life Their little game is coming to an end though as the stakes have just been raisedI thought the plot of this book was intriguing and interesting but I didn’t like the hero or the writing very much The hero was very arrogant and holier than thou which I know was to foil Marielle but it served to make him unlikable for me Marielle had so many great ualities and even though the Home Office believed she was a spy they never were able to prove itKendale distrusts the French Marielle especially for several reasons He thinks she’s a spy he doesn’t believe she is who she says she is and she does nothing to dispel the rumors If anything she revels in them Marielle claims to be the daughter of a French aristocrat but she doesn’t live like one Her dresses are decades out of date worn and she has little money Everything about her is suspectShe is working at making and selling political etchings to save her father back in France and it turns out Kendale and she have a common enemy But it takes Kendale a good portion of the book to trust her and Marielle does nothing to make him trust her She continues her lies and tales and constantly keeps him on his toes which should have made for a fun romance but I found it annoying that she never tried to help herself in that respectThis book has the makings of a great plot but I found it slow and a bit of a let downMy copy has the hero’s name listed as Gavin but the Goodreads blurb calls him AlbanARC courtesy of Avon Books and Avon AddictsARC courtesy of Pocket books
