A bit predictable. I rather liked Minerva & Royce as a couple, but it was obvious those two were going to end up together, so there was no real suspense. Since this was book #8 in a series, and the first one I've read, there seemed to be a lot of back story to these characters that I didn't fully understand. Despite that, I was able to follow along with most of the characters and their motivations. The traitor in the story seemed like it was written in as an after thought, perhaps a continuation of the plot from book #7? Seemed like the author just need to plug in a few references to the other books to consider it a part of her series! Honestly, these could have been any two characters from the ton and the story would have read the same.
I didn't like how most of the story jumped between Minerva & Royce's POV, and then all of a sudden the POV switched to the traitor's POV. The transitions could have been better.
