Shannon is one of “Merlin’s Maidens”. She is daring and has a temper that will singe the britches off anyone who dares to get in her way. She has managed to get into some hot water with her superiors, and when the chance to redeem herself on another mission comes, she jumps at the chance to make things right. Only a slight alter to this mission, it is a joint mission with the last person she wanted to be with, the sexy Russian spy, Alexandr Orlov. Yet what she finds on this mission is more than she bargained for.
Alexandr Orlov is no more excited about his partner in the quest than Shannon is. He likes things simple. Go in, get the job done, and back out. Just like his life, no strings left. Yet he knows that when they are together the sparks fly between them. Can he keep his hands off her in order to play out his orders? He is after all only a man, a man who manages to make every female in his presence swoon with his notorious charm.
Shannon and Alex find they must work together disguised as a tutor and a governess to protect an elderly dowager and her two grandchildren from danger. Only when unexpected guests show up, things get a bit more complicated. Besides not knowing who to trust or just where the danger lies, Shannon and Alex are also fighting a personal war with each other to try to resist the connection they feel and not let it interfere with the job at hand. That could mean dire consequences.
I must admit, when I first started this book I was ready for a snoozer as the first chapter didn’t catch my interest right away. Yet as I read further I was sucked into a world of intrigue, danger and romance. Mr. Orlov worked his charming powers over me as well! What woman would not want a man like him to fall for her? Not to mention Shannon is nothing short of He-woman, yet both have flaws you are able to see clearly. And Lady Octavia, well you just need to get your copy of Seduced by a Spy in order to enjoy all these characters in their glory.
