(Terra's Thoughts) A great story of intrigue, love, torture and hate awaits the reader of this story. Cleverly written with descriptive details that will make your heart cringe and your toes curl.
Cora deBeau is a ravenous beauty whose skill would make the average woman of the ton get the vapors of fear just from the first few words. Cora has been trained as a spy and is damned good at what she does until one little slip of confidence gives her away and nearly costs her her life. Can she keep her beauty inside and out with the horendous acts that will be cast upon her body?
Guy Trevelyn is extremely talented, handsome and has come into his place as an heir, but having a title doesn't get in the way of his life's purpose of cracking codes during the French Revolution. He's best of the best until he happens upon a nearly broken human that will stun him into the most protective of modes.
This story is rich in action, love, lust, betrayal, hurt, passion and so much more. The author playes your emotions like a string on a violin, plucking each with the most tender of touches but bringing about the most vibrant of reactions. A story that you think must be going to come to some sort of conclusion soon only to have you chasing after the next chapter to see what could possibly happen next.
I absolutely loved this book for it's intensity and richness. A well written plot that keeps you going and going wondering how one woman can go through so much and still come out with any kind of sanity at all. A stronger heroine has not been written in quite some time and our author has pushed this heroine to her most inner limits. Well done!
