Emilia St. George is moments away from marrying the admired grandson of a duke when the man who once jilted her decides to kidnap her at the altar. It’s the second time in five years Hamilton Sparrow has ruined her wedding day, and Emilia isn’t about to forgive him. The mere sight of her ex-fiancé revives painful memories—and, most regrettably, aching desires that refuse to be ignored.
Scanning the guests at Emilia’s wedding, Sparrow spots a familiar face: an assassin he recognizes from his days as a spy in France. Whisking Emilia away, he’s pleasantly surprised by her newly formed curves. Could this be the same flame-haired slip of a girl once promised to Sparrow? And does the fop she still insists on marrying realize what a prize she is? True, Sparrow left Emilia at the altar. But he’s afraid that the only way to right that particular wrong is to risk the one thing he’s always guarded: his heart.
I really, really, really love this series. Starting with Spy Fall, every one of those books kept me glued to my reader and I didn't put it away till the last page was read.
When Sparrow kidnaps Emilia right from the altar where she was just about to get married to a duke's son, he doesn't do that, contrary to what Emilia might think, because he has a habit of breaking up weddings for sport.
Of course, Emilia might be a bit a bit touchy there as he was the last one who left her standing at the altar but facts count, don't they? And he couldn't have let her marry somebody when her life seems to be in danger, right? So...no matter how good his intentions were, right now it leaves him with a very unhappy Emilia and also (too) much time for some realizations of his own.
Needless to say, this series being as amazing as it is, nothing is as simple as it might look and very quickly it's not just their lives at risk but also their hearts.
I love those amazing, complex characters and the well written, gripping story - a wonderful book, that I can definitely recommend!
