{Book Summary}

London barrister Jason Jonquil has spent his entire life working to establish his identity as a gentleman, a man of refinement like his father and brothers. But when fiery Spanish beauty Mariposa Thornton walks into his office, he finds himself losing his grasp on his dignified character. The woman is infuriating, pushing him to the limit of his legendary patience. However, her case seems simple enough—a small matter of inheritance. Or so he believes.Once a well-born lady, Mariposa fought to survive the brutalities of Napoleon’s war on Spain. She braved horrific perils and undertook dangerous missions on behalf of those fighting against the invading French army. But her greatest battle still lies ahead: after being separated from her family, Mariposa sets in motion a plan to reunite with her loved ones in England. To avoid drawing the attention of the French, Mariposa dons a carefully crafted persona to conceal her true purpose. As Jason and Mariposa are drawn together by the case, they come to know the people beneath the masks they both wear. When the truth of Mariposa’s quest is revealed, the couple is pulled into a mystery that will test the limits of their courage—and expose the true desire of their hearts.

 {My Review}

I was very excited to read another book in the Jonquil brothers series. At the beginning of the book, you meet a manipulative woman and a very uptight man. As the book progresses, you realize that Mariposa and Jason are both very vulnerable people wearing masks to protect themselves. I actually really liked how Mariposa was getting under Jason's skin on purpose. Poor Jason kept falling into her traps and there were many humorous moments because of it.

The meat of the story happens though when Mariposa and Jason are thrown together because of necessity and the walls fall down between them. I loved when they had to pose as a married couple. This is truly when you began to love each character even more. You learn more about why they have acted the way they have and presented themselves to the world in a certain way. I especially loved to see Jason opening up. Of course, I was quite giddy when Jason and Mariposa finally made it to Jason's brother Philip's house.(We originally met Philip in Friends and Foes.) It was fun to read about him again and get to the root of his previous actions too. 

It is always such a pleasure to read a book written by Sarah Eden. I highly recommend if you've never read any books in this series that you start reading them in the correct order. I've always had a hang up about reading books in the right order and also not reading the end of the book early. 😆

 So, get ready to read a tension filled romance with great amounts of humor and tender scenes to round out this very, enjoyable book.
