When Caroline Trent is kidnapped by Blake Ravenscroft, she doesn't even try to elude this dangerously handsome agent of the crown. After all, she's been running from unwanted marriage proposals. Yes, Blake believes she's a notorious spy named Carlotta De Leon, but for six weeks until her twenty-first birthday, when she'll gain control of her own fortune, hiding out in the titillating company of a mysterious captor is awfully convenient—and maybe just a little romantic, too.
Blake Ravenscroft's mission is to bring "Carlotta" to justice, not to fall in love. His heart has been hardened by years of intrigue, but this little temptress proves oddly disarming and thoroughly kissable. And suddenly the unthinkable becomes possible—that this mismatched couple might be destined for love.

That got her attention. "You have?"
"Not that I knew who you were until last month. But now that I've got you, I'm not letting you go."
Blake stared at her in irritated confusion. What was her game? "Do you think I'm an idiot?" he spat out.
"No," she said. 'I've just escaped from a den of idiots, so I'm well familiar with the breed, and you're something else entirely. I am, however, hoping you're not a terribly good shot.'
"I never miss."
J'ai bien aimé l'histoire. Histoire d'amour avec des prétextes rocambolesques avec beaucoup de jeux de mots où Caroline est en mode réaction comme si une guêpe la piquait, du moins c'est ce que j'ai compris. J'ai beaucoup souri, par contre je ne maîtrise pas assez l'anglais pour bien goûter tous les jeux de mots.
