This is my first K.C. Bateman Book and I really enjoyed this story. She had me hooked from the beginning. Her writing is so seamless, intelligent and stimulating that I was half way through the book before I even looked up. Great character development with an intricate exciting plot.
Richard is a Gentleman who has everything, money, a title, any woman he wants. He is also a spy who has been trying to catch a Frenchman, Phillippe Lacorte, a counterfeiter. He never expected that he would show up at his front door and that he was a she.
Sabine de la Tour is an artist who has used her artistic talent to become a counterfeiter to survive in war torn France. Napolean is exiled and Sabine wants to leave her old life behind and start over. She has a plan and Richard's cooperation is crucial.
From the first meeting, they challenged each other. I loved the witty back and forth. Richard and Sabine were perfect for each other. Once Richard realizes that he doesn't want to live a life without Sabine he has to convince her that they could have their HAE.
This is the 3rd book in The Secret and Spies Series and is also a great stand alone story. I will be going to Amazon to buy the first two in the Series.
