The Spymaster’s Lady, published in January 2008

British spymaster Robert Grey must enter France and bring back the brilliant, beautiful — and dangerous — Fox Cub. His duty is to capture her and her secrets for England. When the two natural enemies are thrown into prison, they forge an uneasy alliance to break free. But their pact is temporary and betrayal seems inevitable. They flee, pursued every step of the way by ruthless authorities, caught in a net of secrets and lies. As the fates of nations hang in the balance, Grey and Annique fight the passion that flares between them — forbidden, impossible, and completely irresistible …
This book got 5-star ratings on Goodreads from some of my favorite authors like Julia Quinn, Elizabeth Hoyt, Bec McMaster, and Julie James.

I just wish I had more time so I can squeeze this one in in my reading schedule.
Have you read this book? What are your thoughts about it? I’d love to hear from you guys.
