Review

...lots of action and excitement in this epic tale; it is a genuine page turner!
                       InD'tale Magazine

There is nothing so entertaining as watching a man who is always in control lose that control.
                       Night Owl Reviews

Several unexpected twists later, the reader finds this book to be anything but an ordinary love story...I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it highly!

This is okay but just barely okay. That is very disappointing considering how well its predecessor "Dangerous Secrets" was written. Lily's background as the daughter of a diplomat and her facility for languages is used to demonstrate why this lowly woman would be a good wife for Richard, the heir to a duke, who is high ranking in the foreign office. So fine, she would make a good diplomats wife. It does nothing to explain why Richard is supposedly in love with her. Personally, I don't think he is so much in love as just obsessed. Lily is either an idiot (who thinks she is clever but clearly does not think through the ramifications of her inclinations) or just a nasty woman. She is attracted to Richard but doesn't actually like him much. When she finally decides to accept his multiple proposals and marry him it has more to do with the practicality of her situation than anything else. There follows a bit of pirate swashbuckling story line, the introduction of some characters who may be the focus of the next book and a few loose ends also available for another story.

I did see some flashes of thoughtfulness in constructing the plot. The author avoided the easy conflicts by having the hero not complicate his life by becoming engaged to a society debutante that everyone was pushing on him. Thankfully, then, he does not have to find some ridiculous plot device to break the engagement in order to marry his true love. The exotic setting in the second half of the book, which could have placed Lily in a harem with all that implies, instead placed her in the seraglio or household of the rulers women as a teacher, not as a concubine in waiting (to be ravished or rescued.)

All in all, this is a big disappointment after "Dangerous Secrets" (which I highly recommend.

This is the third in a wonderful new series by a new author which, in itself, is a rare treat. The historical detail is exceptional with many of the actions placed in very exotic and rarely used locations. These gritty, colorful settings contrasted in a very interesting manner with the rigid, stifling world of upper crust England just after the Napoleonic Wars. At each point of tension was a clash of cultures shown through interactions of the characters more than through scenery: class divisions in England, a powerful sultan's harem of the Ottoman Empire, a remote island of the Barbary Pirates. Through the characters' eyes, each complex culture came alive and was pictured as multidimensional and human. This is hard to accomplish by an author and was very well crafted. The complexity made reading the story confusing at times but was appropriate for the story and for the times. This was a VERY complex historical period which still has ramifications felt today.

The romance was less compelling and seemed to require the main characters to act in slightly unbelievable ways in order to drive the complex plot. I could never connect with the heroine's continued resistance to marriage, especially as the circumstances developed. I did enjoy the growth of the main characters. They became deeper and more developed as the book progressed.

Ms Warfield is a wonderful new author of Regency/mid 1800's England romance/suspense. I look forward to following her for a long time. She knows her stuff and knows how to deliver a well crafted, highly enjoyable yarn.

(SPOILERS will be found in this review.)

All the adventures and exotic locations in the world can't make the romance of this book appealing. And that's a real shame because I really enjoyed the first two books in this DANGEROUS series by Warfield.

In the first place, the first half of the book takes place in England where the H/h relationship is that totally exasperating kind you often find in the Harlequin variety romance. Both H and h are stubborn to a fault. The H is haughty, autocratic and with feelings of entitlement. I'd met him before in the first two books and was curious to see what Warfield would do to make me like him. Well, he does improve by the very end of the book but 75% of this thing had me so exasperated that I very grudgingly gave him any admiration for his changes in character.

He's a marquess and the h is just a lowly miss. Therefore any attraction he feels for her he just considers an itch that needs scratching. So I could understand why, when presented with the opportunity to have sex with her, he goes for it. What I couldn't understand is why she is so, so attracted to him that she's willing to have her virginity taken in a shearing shed. He doesn't even treat her with much respect and courtesy. I did not understand her.

And I didn't understand her attitude when he discovers he did 'ruin' her and proposes marriage. She refuses. (He doesn't love her.) Even after she discovers she's pregnant, she does not let him know (and that, BTW, is unconscionable) and continues to refuse him. (He doesn't love her. Better to be poor and raise a bastard child than to be married to someone who doesn't love her.) Oh, for the sake of Peter and Paul! A more derivative romance trope does not exist.
