A case of secret identities finds reunited lovers on opposite sides of the law in this fun, flirty Regency romance.
There's only one case Bow Street agent Alex Harland, Earl of Melton, hasn't cracked: the identity of the mysterious woman who stole a kiss from him before he left for war. He's neither forgotten—nor forgiven—her for leaving him wanting. When he starts investigating the Nightjar, an elusive London jewel thief, he keeps running into the alluring Emmy Danvers, who stirs feelings he hasn't felt in years.
Even though Emmy's loved Alex for years, she can’t risk revealing her heart, or her identity as the Nightjar. With Alex on her case, Emmy knows that her secrets are in danger of being discovered. Their cat and mouse game heats up with every interaction, but when Emmy’s reputation—and life—is at risk, will Alex realize that some rules are made to be broken for love?
“Sometimes the chase is such fun that the catching is quite a disappointment.” she took another bite of teacake. “One the other hand, sometimes being caught is only the start of the adventure.”
I don’t remember how I came across the first book in this series, but I did devour it in one sitting. Historical/Regency romance is a new thing for me, I use to never read them. I’ve been all over them the past year though. This author was a new to me author with the first book in this series, she will be one I follow now.
This book was just as enjoyable as the first one was. Her writing style is easy to read, and it’s one of the things I like the most. Alex and Emmy had great chemistry together. The spark they created was present from beginning to end. I can’t wait for the next one in this series!
If you haven’t read her yet, please do! If you don’t read this genre, just try it. Don’t dismiss it like I did, I regret not trying it sooner.
