I've really been enjoying this whole series. This 5th book did not disappoint. I think it could probably be read as a stand alone, but I really like my series in order. It's the librarian in me.
This story revolves around Baron Gregory Fulham, who is a spy, and happens to be recruiting another agent in France. Fulham goes to see a play, where he sees Monique Servais perform and is quite taken by her. They go backstage to meet her, but she is not impressed. She feels that in her position as an actress, men treat her like a prostitute and she is not. Fulham leaves France and does not think he will ever run into Monique again.
However, Fulham runs in royal circles because of his position as spymaster. Conspiracies are underfoot and Fulham is determined to figure out what is going on. He does run into Monique again, but he can't figure out how it is that she has filled a role of a princess who is a candidate to rule Belgium. Of course sparks fly and their attraction and feelings grow for each other. Fulham might not know the entire truth, but he will try to make sure that she is safe.
Part mystery, part adventure, and lots of romance, this book will keep you up until the wee hours so you can just get to the end! A perfect HEA with a sexy cover to stare at. I highly recommend this book if you are a fan of Sabrina Jeffries or any other Regency romance.
