Annique Villiers is afraid that the end has finally come. After years as a French spy, she is about to be tortured and killed by her own countrymen. Her conscience will not allow any more innocents to die, including the two English in the dungeon with her.

As Head of his division, Grey rarely is in the field, but the loss of several of his men changes things. Now he is chained in a French dungeon and his only hope is a woman his captors consider untrustworthy.

Annique’s conscience will no longer allow her to work for Fouche and his men in French Intelligence. They wish her dead, or worse. Just as bad is the uncertainty of what will happen to her in the hands of British Intelligence, but her only chance is to go to London to the home of her mother’s lover.

This is set in an unusual time between the Revolution and Napoleon’s war against the world with intrigue everywhere. Annique is a courageous character, a spy since she was a child with a photographic memory. Grey, the British spy, is honorable, but forced to kidnap her because of her possible involvement in the death of several of his men. The plot is gripping with many twists and turns so appropriate in a spy story. No one is who they seem, even Annique. The one constant is the very good love story between these two. They have some rough times, and very hot love scenes. The other characters are as well drawn as chameleon like spies can be. I especially liked Adrian. The plot is full of danger, action and intrigue. I read this in one sitting because I could not put it down. This is a very exciting story I cannot recommend highly enough.
