OrangeReviewStarCaught with a French official's wife while on an espionage mission, Grey Sommers, Lord Wyndham, was thrown into a dungeon by her irate husband and has languished there for a decade. Now, fortified with new clues, Cassie Fox is sent on a last-ditch effort into France to find Grey and bring him home—if he is still alive. With expertise honed by experience and determination fueled by the need to avenge her losses at the hands of Napoléon, Cassie rescues Grey, and together they make their way back to England, leaving a furious Citoyen Durand frustrated and plotting revenge.
VERDICT With sensitivity and inimitable skill, Putney rescues another lost lord; gives him a brave, resourceful heroine who helps him heal; complicates things with foiling villains, readjusting to society, and falling in love; and weaves it all together in another beautifully written, unforgettable romance. Putney (Nowhere Near Respectable) lives in the Baltimore area.
