Spy for the Crown, Nash Powell barely survived an uprising and that was only due to his twin brother, Robbie. Now the brothers have been tasked with bringing in a Scotsman charged with sedation and what better cover than sailing with one’s brothers and their wives to Scotland for Christmas. What neither considers is the alluring Scotswoman they encounter or that one of them may have a change of heart. Can one convince the other that their way is right?
Aileen Stephens, like female relatives before her, has the second sight and like her male relatives she has a love of designing ships. When English visitors arrive to spend Christmas with her family, Ailie is taken aback by the appearance of two men who resemble the man in her latest vision. While trying to understand the meaning of her sight she has another where blood is shed. As Ailie gets to know her visitors can she decipher the true meaning of her visions and when she does will she be able to follow her heart or will a betrayal be too much?
I’m not normally a fan of a love triangle, but there really wasn’t any other way to describe the romance aspect. I kind of felt sorry for Aileen for the tough task of choosing which twin she was compatible with. Both twins had their charming aspects. Robbie, the rogue and Nash, the grounded one.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that both Robbie and Nash are spies. It would help to know that this series is set around characters who have all been spies at one time or another. With the pretense of a family holiday vacation in Scotland, the Powell twins set out to capture a wanted man. Aileen is the unexpected boon and both brothers start a little competition.
As with all of Regan Walker’s stories, I always look forward to learning something. She always incorporates part of history that takes place around time frame of the story. The subplot being the aftermath of the Peterloo Massacre which ultimately leads the Powell brothers to Aileen and towards the end is the cause of the contention. Despite the serious undertones, the lighthearted family vacationing in the countryside was a nice glimpse into the holiday traditions of both the Scottish and English.
If you’ve not read the previous stories in this series, fear not, for this can be read as a standalone. While most of the past characters are in this story, there are no real series spoilers. One can easily enjoy the story, since it’s really focused on the Aileen and her twin admirers. Reading this, I felt like I was a guest myself at the party. At times, the story seemed a bit slow and in want of some action, but I could totally appreciate it regardless. It was pretty obvious about who Aileen would end up with, but it was still fun to read about how she would come to her decision.
Especially looking forward to reading the next installment.
Regan Walker has the great talent to allow the reader, from the first page to the last, to become drawn into the story and hold them there until the last paragraph is read. The reader feels what the characters feel and become part of their history. I very highly recommend this book and author to anyone who loves reading historical romance. I anxiously wait to read about other characters and will mark my calendar for future releases.
