This book was a wonderful read. I was hooked buy the end 
of the first few pages. It is so well written and full of 
excitement and passion. I loved Antonia how even though 
in her predicament she did what ever it took to take care of
 her sisters. Even steal a book to prove her side of things.
 Too bad Robert is there to steal the same book. And when
 she thinks she has got away and no one is the wiser Robert
 takes her down and then the real fun begins. I can not wait 
till the next book. Now before I ruin this for you I will leave off
 here.  I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. If you do 
like this book, please consider leaving a review. The Authors
 really like it when you do, they value your opinions too.



 London, 1854 ~ Robert, Earl of Wentworth, isn’t a spy, and
 he never wants to be one, but when his brother is injured 
and needs his help stealing an important book from the 
Russian embassy, he can’t refuse.
Antonia has lost everything. If she wants her life back, she 
needs that book. The problem is, Lord Wentworth just stole 
it from the Russian Ambassador.

The reluctant spy and the daring thief find themselves at
 cross-purposes. Who will win in this dangerous game of
nations— especially when their hearts are at stake as well?

Note: Although this is the third book in the series, it can be 
read as a standalone novel. For those who have read the 
first two books, you'll rediscover characters from both of them.

- Antonia and Robert (Lord Wentworth) are in his study late in the evening.

     “I’m used to being the smallest person in the room. Everyone towers over me. I can’t let my lack of physical stature unnerve me, or I’d never have any confidence at all. And anyway, I’ve found that if I look at a man in just the right way, I rattle him more than he could ever rattle me. It seemed to work to my benefit the night we met.”

     His eyes narrowed very slightly, and she tilted her head to the side to look at him coyly.

     “Are you surprised to hear that?” she asked.

     “It’s a quite a claim. Are all men susceptible? Even those who are forewarned?”

     “Perhaps you’d like to judge for yourself.” She tilted her chin down slightly so she gazed up at him through her widened eyes and fixed him with a heated stare. After the kiss they’d already shared, she knew she was playing with fire, but she couldn’t stop herself.

     Robert met her gaze. His eyes narrowed slightly, but he didn’t glance away. Instead, he kept his stare even, returning her fire and heat with his cool determination. 

     Rather than flustering him, the reverse was true. She found herself trapped in his gaze. His eyes were most fascinating. Although they were pale blue, the centers had shafts of a slightly darker hue radiating outward, like a frost-bound starburst. As she stared into their depths, heat wrapped around her throat and washed down her shoulders, as though she were wearing a fur wrap in an overheated room. 

     She knew she should end this stare-down, but she couldn’t. Instead, she rose up on her tiptoes and leaned closer, inhaling the faint whiskey scent of him as she kept her gaze fixed on those two frozen starbursts.

     Suddenly the pair of frozen, blue embers began to warm. She was transfixed as Robert leaned closer to her, wrapping his arms around her, engulfing her in his masculine heat and strength. He lowered his mouth to hers, and as their lips touched, she was surprised by his tenderness. She’d expected him to devour her, but he kept himself in check.

     She should pull away, but she couldn’t. Instead, she let out a soft sigh of contentment and opened her mouth under the pressure of his lips. They darted their tongues against each other, touching, tasting, and withdrawing, only to begin again more insistently.

     She leaned into him. She wanted his support. His strength. She lifted her hands and allowed them to drift up his arms, sliding them over his shoulders until her fingers found their way back to the hair at the nape of his neck.

     Robert moaned softly and pulled her closer. He ran one hand up and down her back. The heat of his palm radiated through her gown, intensifying the growing warmth within her.

     That same feeling of safety and security engulfed her again. It would be such a simple matter to give herself over to him entirely.

     Robert wrapped his arms more tightly around her waist and lifted her, pulling her firmly against his body as he moved them both closer to the sofa. She clung to him, her arms wrapped firmly around his shoulders, as he lowered them both to the soft, cool embrace of the leather. He pressed her back and began kissing her just beneath her ear. He trailed his lips down her neck, kissing every inch of skin along his path toward the top of her bodice.

     Antonia raked her fingers through his hair, savoring the touch and feel of this man. She knew she should make him stop, but she couldn’t force herself to say the words or to push him away. She wanted him, and she could hardly believe that he wanted her as well. A nobody. A nothing. A woman without a name.

     But names were meaningless at a moment like this. Only the emotions and sensations coursing through her mattered.

     Robert cupped her breast, and when he slid his thumb back and forth over the tip, she arched her back, yearning for more.

     He paused and plunged his fingers into her hair, cupping her head and pulling her into him as he kissed her deeply. His hand fell to her front and he began working at the buttons that closed her bodice. It didn’t take long before it was open and he was pushing it from her shoulders, revealing her corset and chemise.

     She slid her hands inside his evening jacket and pushed it from his shoulders. He shrugged out of it, throwing it across the room and then pressing her to his chest. The heat of his skin through his linen shirt seared her, and she began to tug at his neckcloth.

     “I want to see you,” she murmured.

     His eyes blazed with an icy fire as he quickly accommodated her, shedding his neckcloth and linen shirt in an instant.

     The lamplight flickered, casting a warm glow over his lean, muscular chest and accentuating its hollows and ripples. She reached out, tracing them with her fingers, and Robert let out a ragged sigh of pleasure.

     “Do you know what you’re doing to me?” His voice wavered, as though he might be on the edge of losing control.

     “I think it’s the same thing you’re doing to me.”
