Against his better judgment, Lieutenant Jeb Danvers undertakes one last secret mission for the Queen. She has made him an offer he cannot help but accept. One that will secure his financial future. But when he discovers that the jewels she has sent him to recover are in the possession of the beautiful Mariah MacFarlane, he knows the jewels aren’t the only things in need of rescue.
Laura Landon is also one of those authors whose books I buy without even looking at the blurb because every book I've read so far has been amazing. The Traitor's Club series is her latest series and I really love those guys. We married off Hugh and Ford in the other two books and now Jeb is on his way to Scotland, right in the middle of intrigue, rebellion and - of course- danger. This assignment is meant to be his very last one, a special one that comes directly from the Queen herself who has promised him a very nice and useful reward.
Well, when he arrives in Scotland and gets to know his host's daughter Mariah, he might find that the unexpected rewards are the ones that really count. Oh, right, you have to get away first, preferably alive, to make things even more complicated. Let's just say that his host might think that Jeb has taken something of value on his trip back, maybe even two things and somehow things very soon get very rough.
Jeb and Mariah are a wonderful couple, tough, lovable, charming and so very much in love with each other that you can almost see the sparks flying off the pages.I really loved those two and I also loved the way the Traitors were there when one of their own needed them. The story is captivating and well told, keeping me glued to my reader from the first page on. I'm so looking forward to the next book in the series!
