William’s task is clear: catch the blackmailer. William Richmond is an earl, a father, a country gentleman… and a former spy. Catching the blackmailer should be simple, but when William finds a beautiful, injured young man on the beach, unfamiliar desires surge. He is determined to focus on the task and resist temptation—resist Daniel, or his carefully constructed illusions will crumble, exposing his lies to the world… and himself.
Daniel’s question is simple: Should he trust William? Daniel has secrets: his identity, his past, how and why he washed up on the shore… and more. With revelations of espionage, blackmail, and the arrival of William’s colleagues, the danger of exposure grows. Daniel’s instincts tell him that William is a decent man, a man of honor, but his instincts have been wrong before. As the attraction grows, so does Daniel’s desire to confess, but if he’s wrong, he risks everything—his secrets, his freedom, and his heart.
So I have always loved historical books and the way this author wrote this story was perfect!
So this being such a short book I really do not want to go to much into the story and what happens because I do not want to give away any spoilers. I will say this was such a sweet story and the steamy scenes between William and Daniel were so damn hot!
The way this author wrote this time period and the characters “which I really loved both William and Daniel” was amazing!
So I will leave this review with…I really loved this story and would definitely recommend it!
