it was amazing

I'm a sucker for both childhood-friends-turn-lovers romances AND Regencies, so this book was a real treat for me. Cora is the most unconventional Regency heroine I've ever read. Not only is she a spy, she's one angry spy. But despite her almost obsessive anger, despite all the ass she kicks and gets kicked out of her, she's wonderfully warm and vulnerable and funny. Guy on the other hand is your typical Regency hero done to perfection. He's titled and handsome and principled, and entirely irrisistable. (If Cora weren't so handy with the daggers, I'd be tempted to time travel and jump him myself). The chemistry sparkles from the very first page and their connection is layered and deep. Tracey Devlyn's voice is authentic and incredibly well researched and vivid. The action and torture scenes will make your skin crawl, the supporting cast will make you smile and the villian will make you mad for justice. Definitely a keeper this one.
