I liked, but didn't lurve, this book. Probably because I don't especially care for espionage stories, although this one was very well plotted. Call me frivolous, but I like my historical romances with a little more glamour -- balls and dresses and matched pairs of greys.
This book though is very well written, and as others have mentioned the author has a sharp ear for dialogue. I will probably read Hawk's story, as he was a delightful secondary character.
