Baron Winslow Keating is honor-bound to finish one last mission as an elite spy for the Barbican group even though he just wants to go home and be with his family. But after years of secrecy and absence, his daughters hardly know him, and his wife has given up on him.
Lady Elinor has had enough of domestic boredom. She contemplates an affair with a rakish spy, only to discover a world of intrigue and treachery that she never knew existed. Even more shocking, her neglectful husband is suddenly very attentive—quite the jealous type—and apparently there is much more to him than she ever knew.
I tried my best not to think of True Lies while reading this book, I mean who wants to see that person when reading about Baron? Yes not me.
I liked the fact that they had been married for ages. Winslow was always away (cos he was a spy and she did not know) and Elinor grew tired of being stood up. Their marriage was not a loving happy one. She had been forgotten, and it had never been a love match. Now how can it go wrong with a premise like that?
I did feel sorry for Elinor, but then again, those were the days. Maybe she should not go and try to be involved in an affair to spice things up. Winslow could have cast her out and she would never have seen the kids again….
And Winslow, really, spend some time with your kids and wife. You are both idiots in the end.
But the book is not gonna end like that. Winslow started to think his wife was hot. She was not gonna forgive him that easily and if you have seen True Lies you know where this is gonna go. There will be danger and spy games for both of them.
But I was not that happy about a certain thing at the end…can’t tell you why. But it was irresponsible. spoiler She becomes a spy too…hello, you have kids. And you were almost killed way too many times through out the book. It will end with her or both dead and the kids have no parents. End
Spies, danger and romance between two people who have been married a long time, but not been in love before now.
