She was everything he remembered, only more so.


OVERVIEW
(from Goodreads)
From the author of An Affair with Mr. Kennedy and A Dangerous Liaison with Detective Lewis comes a sexy new romantic caper in the Gentlemen of Scotland Yard series.

Prima ballerina Catriona de Dovia lives the glamorous life of a starlet, filled with glittering jewels, sumptuous dinners, and admiring suitors. She's grown up considerably since losing her heart to Hugh Curzon once upon a time, no longer wasting her emotions on the empty promises of wealthy gentlemen. On her own since the untimely death of her parents, she will do anything for the only family she has left: her brother, a notorious anarchist.

Scotland Yard Agent Phineas Gunn—sometimes known as Hugh Curzon—receives his new assignment reluctantly. He's up for something a little more strenuous than playing nanny to a ballerina, until he sees who his charge is. Then, it's a completely different story, because he'd been unable to forget the trusting, beautiful Cate since he had to leave her behind.

As the two race across the Continent—by land, by sea, even through the air by zephyr—it becomes uncertain who is keeping tabs on whom, and Finn and Cate must battle the sexual tension that snaps and sizzles between them every step of the way.

REVIEW
This is London 1887. Another historical,adventure  romance in the Gentlemen of Scotland Yard series.This is the third book in the three part series.I can be read as a stand alone. Phineas Gunn is an agent for Scotland Yard. Finn  served in Kandahar and it was a terrible time for him.  He has a form of  PTSD, only in the late 1800's they called it a Soldier's Heart. He could normally control in with breathing deep and thinking calm thoughts.When Cate and Gunn were together, the temperature rose and the Soldier's Heart eased. They were a couple who played the espionage game and played each other. If you have read the first two books in this series, you already know the history and can carry on with the romance between the two. Mrs. Stone introduces some of the high tech advances that have been made.  Even so they have to rely on their own skills to stay out of trouble.  The book was filled with intriguing characters, treason, spies, suspense,love and a twist and turn plot.  This adventure just wasn't my cup of tea.   The book dragged along in places for me. Perhaps If I had read the first two books in the series, the book would have moved better for me. I'll leave it up to you as you join the gentlemen of Scotland yard and the adventurous ladies that accompanied them..

I would give this book 3 PINS out of 5.

AUTHOR
Jillian Stone was born a storyteller. A skill that got her into considerable trouble as a youth until she solved the problem by becoming an advertising creative. And the career did seem to suit her as she won many national ad awards including the Clio and the New York Art Director’s Club Gold. What more could she ask for? Create her own worlds? Become goddess of her own universe? Yes! So, she began to write fiction. Her Victorian Romantic Suspense novel AN AFFAIR WITH MR. KENNEDY won the 2010 Golden Heart and sold to Pocket Books. Her sexy, supernatural Steampunk novel, THE SEDUCTION OF PHAETON BLACK, won the 2010 Romance Through The Ages Erotica category and sold to Kensington Brava. Jillian lives in California and is currently working on the next adventure for both series.
