The review of this Book prepared by Angel Manners

When Caroline Trent escapes her loathsome guardian and his son, she doesn't expect to be mistaken for a spy and taken prisioner by the devilishly handsome Blake Ravenscroft. After coercing her way into helping him AND the country, nothing in her life is the same, especially after she finds herself not only starting death in the face but spending the night in her captor's bed. With only a little amount left to save Caroline's future and livelihood, can the duo put passions aside or will Blake relive his all too painful past and lose the woman he loves?
