The amount of historical detail that Elizabeth Camden pours into her books always astounds me. When you’re reading, it doesn’t even feel like you’re reading historical fiction. Instead, it feels like you’re living in the time period.
I read the first book in this series and enjoyed it, but was left wanting more in the romance department. I’m an emotional cheese puff, as you well know, so I want my heart to swoon. But Nathaniel and Caroline certainly had their swoony moments! I was so pleased.
I was also looking forward to this book because I needed to know more about Caroline’s mysterious brother, Luke. The way his story played out was a slow torture, but so well done. We’ll read more about him in the next book of the series. I also loved the sibling dynamic that Gray and Caroline showed.
Overall, this was an enjoyable read. The third installment in the series (The Prince of Spies) comes out this year, so be looking for it!
I received a complimentary copy of this novel from the publisher. All expressed opinions belong to me.

Nathaniel. Bless his heart, he holds himself to such a high standard. He seems rigid and no fun on the outside, but he has the heart of an artist–the heart of a romantic–and I live for it.
