Just love love love this series and this cast of characters. Wow! I’ve been privileged to read all of the books in this series and having read this one, I couldn’t help going back to read the others.

The dialogue between the main characters, Earl of Wrexford and Lady Charlotte Sloane, is engaging as well as it expressing the tension, love and respect for one another. Their commitment to and relationship with the youngsters, Raven and Hawk added to this. In fact, the ensemble cast was put together in a way that they all had significant roles, both within the story and amongst them personally. They continue to add to the richness and enjoyment of the story.

Five stars are just not enough for this one! Can’t wait for the next one, Well done Andrea Penrose.

With thanks to #Netgalley, Kensington Books and the author for my advance reader copy in exchange for an honest review.

From the back cover:

Charlotte, now the Countess of Wrexford, would like nothing more than a summer of peace and quiet with her new husband and their unconventional family and friends. Still, some social obligations must be honored, especially with the grand Peace Celebrations unfolding throughout London to honor victory over Napoleon.

But when Wrexford and their two young wards, Raven and Hawk, discover a body floating in Hyde Park’s famous lake, that newfound peace looks to be at risk. The late Jeremiah Willis was the engineering genius behind a new design for a top-secret weapon, and the prototype is missing from the Royal Armory’s laboratory. Wrexford is tasked with retrieving it before it falls into the wrong hands. But there are unsettling complications to the case—including a family connection.

Soon, old secrets are tangling with new betrayals, and as Charlotte and Wrexford spin through a web of international intrigue and sumptuous parties, they must race against time to save their loved ones from harm—and keep the weapon from igniting a new war . . .
