Book Summary

Lady Elise Henderson lives two separate lives. At home in Scotland, she’s the titled daughter of the Marquess of Roxbury, an heiress in her own right. In London, however, she’s Elise Taylor, a top MI6 operative for the “home office.” But when a devastating accident threatens to end her career, Elise is left with far too much time for self-reflection and the regret of a decision made long ago that features one man: fellow MI6 agent Harry Benson.

Harry Benson, the son of servants, has loved Elise for the better part of a decade. But life took them on separate journeys until their worlds converged once more. An immediate assignment to the Scottish Borders leaves Harry little time to make provisions for his small, rambunctious son, Sammy. Harry knows only one person he can rely on for the boy’s care―Elise. When Elise brings Sammy to her ancestral estate, she never imagines that a nemesis from her past looms in the shadows, hungry for revenge. Stalked at every turn, Elise and Harry discover that fighting their feelings for one another is futile, but can they survive long enough to get another shot at true love?

My Review
Facing the Enemy is a new contemporary romantic suspense novel by Author Paige Edwards. I love the setting of this novel in Scotland, just like Edward's previous romantic suspense novel, Danger on the Loch. Even though this book is said to be a stand-alone novel, there are characters that we met in Danger on the Loch. I loved this aspect and felt like we already knew the many characters in Facing the Enemy. 

The main characters have lived exciting lives as M16 agents. Elise and Harry have known each other since they were teenagers. Their early romance was nixed by Elise's parents who are Scottish Royalty. Now years later after being M16 partners, they're still in love but didn't realize it until danger and turmoil enter their lives. Even with the many setbacks that Elise had, Harry was still there to encourage her. I really loved Harry's son Sammy and how he brought out certain things in Elise that she hadn't allowed herself to feel before. 

This very suspenseful novel and its unquestionable, crazy bad guy, will keep you on the edge of your seat. The ending of the novel is harrowing and must be read in one sitting; trust me on this. The romance is clean and gut-wrenching at the same time. Thankfully, a certain person realizes they can't run from love. 

Facing the Enemy brings out a myriad of emotions that have many highs and lows. Truly though, this novel is worth the crazy and intense ride. You will want to take this ride for yourself by purchasing this novel today.
