In case you missed my review of Saving the Rifleman, know that I am not much of a romance reader. Not that I don't read it, I just don't read enough to be considered proficient in the genre. My stomping ground is usually historic fiction and it was the fact based material that led me to Julie Rowe's Enticing the Spymaster.

Again, I liked the setting. Belgium during WWI, very cool, but this is book two. Rowe presented this same material in book one and while I still think it makes an interesting backdrop, she doesn't score new points offering me something I've seen and applauded her for in the past.

The obvious question now is what's new? Well, I liked the relationship a lot more this go round. Jude and Michael share a past and though we don't get it first hand, the fact that it exists makes their romance significantly more believable than that of their predecessors. Ideally, yes, I would have liked to witness those events as they played out, but the reality is this is a novella and Rowe's treatment of the material is quite an innovative means of mirroring the depth that is usually limited to full length narratives.

Another thing that worked, poison gas. One of the most recognized weapons of the conflict, I liked seeing this material raise its ugly head in the middle of a war time romance. Maybe it is just me, but the fact that Rowe pushed something as horrid as chemical weaponry into a genre that is characterized by optimism and passion blew my mind. The inherent contrast in that really appealed to me.

The downside here was Jude's background. She is a beautiful, intelligent, brave, competent nurse who just happens to be the daughter of one of King George's closest advisers and a blood relation of the Belgian nobility.

I have mixed feelings about this book. It's a good story with the right amount of suspense, war, and romance. It has a decent amount of historical data too. You feel as though you've gone back. And as usual with a Julie Rowe story, you have a fair amount of medical stuff--which is educational as well as entertaining.

And it's well written, if a bit short for the seriousness of the situation and the topic chosen: WWI.

But I love the heroine, Jude, a nurse and lady spy in one. I loved the way she stood up to the hero. I didn't like him much at all. That's my problem, I'd say. He has no faith in women, doesn't think they believe in the war, blah blah blah...

"Back in England, he'd make sure her father kept her home..."

I failed to see what the heroine saw him in. She even says she doesn't want a man like the following:

"Believes all women are stupid and their only functions are to have babies or host parties..."

It all works out in the end though. I'll give them that. I appreciated the ending. There was a moment of incredible suspense when I doubted they were going to get that ending. It takes good writing to make me forget that there's going to be a HEA 'cause it's required. LOL

While I struggled with the first half--the hero's bossiness and constantly kissing the heroine even though she had told him not to touch her ever again--I enjoyed the last half very much. I LOVE that the woman saves the day. I also enjoyed the additional character. It was a good surprise and I hope to see more of this person in book three.

ENTICING THE SPYMASTER by Julie Rowe.

It's a romance, but there is no romantic relationship development. Before the story begins, they met and fell in love. She wanted to marry him but he rejected her. None of that is shown. This book starts two years later when their paths cross. She feels negative because of his past rejection. The plot and conflicts are mostly about the two of them fleeing from German soldiers during WWI. That was good, and I liked things she did - strong, smart, brave heroine. But for a romance novel I expected more about healing and changing their relationship. Instead, he tells her the reason he rejected her which was not his fault. Then they have their happy ending.

It was missing the falling in love part from the past as well as currently. And I didn't know anything about him. What was it that made her love him?

There was one sex scene. I didn't feel their desire for each other. It was like mechanically taking her virginity and being done.

I was really looking forward to this one--the premise sounded great. Its execution, though, didn't quite live up to the promise. Portions of the plot were a bit convoluted, and the characters acted a bit over-the-top in the drama department. Since they're novellas--and therefore not a huge time investment--I'll probably give the first book in the series a try before giving up on the series.
