Great read! Not only an excellent romantic suspense story, but a little history lesson thrown in! I would highly recommend this book. Not your everyday historical romance.
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.
Lionel Ashton has been appointed guardian of both Lady Philippa and the secret she unknowingly bares. And protect this sensuous and fiercely independent woman he will, even from the king, himself. But what Lionel knows about Pippa will put both their lives in the greatest danger.
