But his secrets put her family in peril.
Grant goes undercover to capture conspirators avowed to murder the prime minister, but his only suspect is the father of a courageous lady who is growing increasingly hard to ignore. He can’t allow Jocelyn to distract him from the case, nor will he taint her with his war-darkened soul. She seems to see past the barriers surrounding his heart, which makes her all the more dangerous to his vow of remaining forever alone.

*I received a copy in exchange for an honest review*
I loved this book and I've loved this series. It's been awhile since I've read the others, but I had no trouble following along and loved seeing glimpses of the other brothers, as this one can stand alone. 
Jocelyn is a very competent woman. Although she's endured a couple of London seasons, she has yet to make a match and this season, she's focusing her efforts on her father's political career, with no thought for herself. She's very good at planning out social events and is the perfect hostess. She's easy to like and even hardened Grant discovers that.
I love a great "first meet" between two characters and this one was the best! Although it is a terrifying situation, Jocelyn isn't rattled and proves her strength, which surprises Grant. He is undercover and works for the Bow Street Runners, investigating claims that Jocelyn's father is plotting to murder the prime minister. Grant is very mysterious, handsome, and intriguing and I love watching him undergo a conversion, of sorts, to some previous ways of thinking. He really does have a heart of gold, as much as he tries to cover it.

I love a good, clean romance, but when there's depth--more "meat" to the story--, I'm in heaven and this book delivers. The reader not only gets a really great, believable romance, but a fantastic story line, full of conspiracy, mystery, and suspense. Working together, Jocelyn and Grant strive to figure things out before it's too late. Walls are broken, secrets uncovered, and surprises await. The pacing is well done and the characters are developed in a way that allows me to fully visualize them. I can't wait to see what Donna Hatch writes next!

Content: mild romance (kissing, very vague talk of prostitution); mild violence (non-graphic); no language. Clean!

My Rating: 5 Stars

Fairley’s daughter smiled at Grant as if she appreciated his dryness. But there was something more, something soft and almost tender in her expression, as if she suspected he carried painful secrets and she sought for a way to ease his burden. Which was ridiculous. Most gently bred females were either conniving and merciless or silly and vain. This girl simply hid her evil better than others of her gender. She might be innocent of her father’s schemes, but no woman was innocent of being a…woman.


He’d have to walk a fine line between getting close enough to the family to covertly investigate the father without giving them any reason to believe he’d be a desirable match for the daughter. He was completely out of his element. He’d have to be polite. It was so much easier to be rude to people so they’d leave him alone, and people generally gave him so many reasons to insult them.
