Readers of the previous books will already know that Séverine is part of the inmost circle at the top level of British intelligence, very much one of a close-knit family united by bonds of friendship and loyalty, if not by blood. I loved the trope of the heroine coming to help a distraught child, and I was surprised how much I fell for the child, being a very strong secondary character. This couple have a little help from Cam's brother Bentley Rutledge, a fat and stubborn kitty, courting galore, passionate kisses and their combined lust to rekindle their love. The lady is not beautiful in herself, but she walks in an aura of Beauty Flesch 1. I was very impressed with her use of such an unusual topic in a historical romance, and the care that she seems to have taken in researching it. I'm sad that there won't be more in this series, but I'm so glad that I picked up The Spymaster's Lady all those years ago, because book to book, this is probably my favorite romance series of all time.
Her stories are interesting and very enjoyable. The expression of beauty remains at the core of the poem. Her reputation for getting results is not, however, the only thing about Sévie that leads Raoul Deverney to enter her bedroom late one night and to calmly demand the return of a missing girl and a missing amulet. Carlyle's character web is so complex. One slew dragons for her, or stood slightly to the left, holding her spare lance and buckler, while she did they slaying. Watching the two characters unravel each other, themselves, and relearning the person their childhood sweetheart has become is a joy to read.
Drawn back into the world she tried to leave behind, Sèverine must confront the demons of her past at the same time help Raoul Deverney discover his estranged wife wife's killer and his missing daughter. Otherwise, start with Spymaster's Lady or the Forbidden Rose. Their desperate search for the girl unleashes treason and murder. I've said in other reviews how reunion stories are a favorite of mine. Still, Bourne shows us her vulnerability, that she can be scared also.
Cam married and his wife passed away in a fire, but left behind their daughter unable to talk. I don't know whether to love her or hate her. Walau terjemahannya kurang enak dibaca, tapi ceritanya bagus. She writes Historical Romances set in England and France during the Napoleonic Wars. Until reading this book, I hadn't even realized that psychological treatments similar to what we use in modern times were even practiced in that era.
The enjambment in the poem assists this in that it adds to the flow of the poem. Renowned within Europe's emerging psychiatric field, Helene has a gift for healing children. Her craving for a mystery outweighs her fear, and she finds herself meticulously going over his apartment, finding clues on how the girl went missing and how the murder of the girl's mother happened. I won't go into the many details of the mystery but it plays out well and gives us lots of adventure. I felt a little snobbish towards Raoul, poor guy. Before they can realize their true love, they have to work through their past including his first wife, his petulant brother, and the demands of society. Their desperate search for the girl unleashes treason and murder.
I wonder if a active horseback riding woman of more then 25 would have any of those 'proofs' of virginity? The problem comes for both Cam and Helene as they both have suppressed their emotions and feelings to try and not be like their parents, as both their parents passions and thoughtless led to unhappiness and loss. Raoul Deverney, an enigmatic half-Spaniard with enough secrets to earn even a spy's respect, is at her door demanding help. Tiga bab itu cerita satu hari. Raoul Deverney is well acquainted with the name of de Cabrillac and has no doubt that the woman he encountered in Spain a decade earlier could have committed or been involved in the murder of his estranged wife. Ten years after being brought to England by William Doyle, Sévie ran off to war where she joined Military Intelligence and gained an impressive reputation as a spy, a woman who took many names, who wore many disguises, who was always frighteningly effective. Helene and Cam knew each other at children.
His undying devotion to his daughter and his belief that the so-called experts are wrong about her condition only make him more appealing. Still keep the angst but lose all of the boring wallowing, and repetition. So, my initial feelings are rooted in admiration for Bourne's prose and deft plotting but largely disappointed in a fairly bland and average romance. I get it, we're supposed to be charmed that she's kinda French, but it just felt awfully fake to me in real life, it is not my experience that people drop snippets of their first language into whatever language they are speaking with what seems to be otherwise native levels of fluency. Camden believes himself already promised to another person so he only offers to become lovers. Now I simply must go back and read or listen to Ms.
The third, The Devil You Know, was the book I most wanted to read and got me interested in the whole three in the series. There were great touches of humor in this book too. I do wish that Adrian and Annique had been present in some of the other books other than their own story. But by the end of the novel, there's no mention of her continuing her work or even remaining active in the field. Sometimes the workings of the mind are as dangerous as those of the heart.
Plot ceritanya jadi lebih menegangkan karena dibayangi misteri penyebab membisunya Ariene, anak Cam yang hampir bersamaan dengan Interesting story. Mereka saling suka tapi dipisahkan sama kedua orang tua masing-masing karena menganggap mereka nggak cocok. Severine reluctantly agrees to aid him, even though she knows the growing attraction between them makes it more than unwise. I love her writing style and her love scenes are very hot. Bourne never forgets that however remarkable they are they are children.
