They once faced each other on a battlefield. Now soldier-turned-spy Jonathan Reese must keep watch over the man he’s never forgotten. A close encounter reveals Karl von Binder, the count’s son, also recalls the day he spared Jonathan’s life. Sparks fly between the former enemies and Jonathan begins to lose perspective on his mission. He knows he must maintain distance because the heat he encounters in Karl’s touch stirs him far too deeply for his own good. He can’t keep away–especially when he suspects someone is trying to kill the nobleman.
The spy becomes a protector as Jonathan guards the man he’s begun to care for. Together the men try to puzzle out who would benefit from Karl’s death—and how much they’re willing to trust each other when a torrid sexual fling threatens to become an affair of the heart.

I enjoyed this adventure! Because in a way that is exactly what this was an adventure through the troubling world of political intrigue to find love. This story had a bit of everything, mystery, action, romance, misunderstanding. Again, these authors have a way of making a romance satisfying while still maintaining believability on the nature of a homosexual relationship in this time period. These men were great together and their romance was well written and satisfying. The bit of angst at the end was not really necessary, but it was resolved quickly and the ending was highly satisfying.
Todd Scott is a new narrator for me. He did a good job bringing this story to life. His characters were easily identifiable and his accents were very well done. I loved how easily he seemed to flow from one to another. He captured the essence of this story and his narration only helped increase my enjoyment.
I would like to thank the author for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
