Sequel of "To Kiss A Spy". Many of the same characters from the first book. Complicated - yet intreaguing plot.

King Phillip of Spain has married Queen Mary of England. He needs an heir to solidify his hold on England. Lady Pippa Neilson (younger sister of Lady Pen d'Arcy from To Kiss a Spy and a lady-in- waiting to the Queen's sister)is unknowingly married to to a gay man who is being blackmailed and manipulated by King Phillip. He allows King Phillip to drug and impregnate Lady Pippa to insure that he will have an heir to the thrown.

Lionel Ashton (an independent spy who has become ingrained as part of King Phillip's court) is assigned to as Pippa's guardian to assure the baby is born healthy and available to King Phillip while protecting the secret. Howeever, Lionel is not what he appears. He is really working for an independent England and has his own reasons for wanting revenge against the Spanish.

What Lionel knows about Pippa will put both their lives in danger. He also falls in love with Pippa to further complicate matters. However, Pippa wants nothing to do with him once she finds out that the baby she carries is not her husband's. She sees Lionel as a traitor to England for his part in this nightmare. Can they save themselves and overcome hatred?

Lady Pippa has always been a carefree young woman, so it's surprising to find the newlywed embroiled in a political plot, and, indeed, no one would be more astonished than she. Pippa's husband, Lord Nielson, is a favorite of Queen Mary, but she's making her disfavor known. And unbeknownst to Pippa, she's part of an intricate plan to guarantee the Catholic succession, so King Philip can bring the Inquisition to England. Pippa knows all is not well with her husband, but she has no idea she's being drugged at night and used by Philip to produce a child while her husband looks on. King Philip is blackmailing Nielson and the only person who can help Pippa is Lionel Ashton, although he's also involved in her violation. Will Pippa be able to trust Ashton and save herself and her unborn child? This fascinating follow-up to To Kiss a Spy.

Kissed By Shadows

But with a brief touch of his hand and one glance of his knowing gray eyes, Pippa felt a connection to the dark stranger who should have been her greatest enemy. Who was this man who seemed to understand more about her life than she did herself? Why did she respond to his most casual caresses with the most urgent and reckless of desires?

Lionel Ashton had been appointed guardian of both Pippa and the secret she unknowingly bore. And protect this sensuous and fiercely independent woman he would, even from the king himself. But what Lionel knows about Pippa will put both their lives in the greatest danger--even as they slip under the spell of a daring seduction that will turn them into passionate outlaws...and legendary lovers.
