A princess in disguise is forced to live with a rogue in order to protect her from danger in this fun, sexy regency romance.
Bow Street agent Sebastien Wolff, Earl of Mowbray, doesn't believe in love―until a passionate kiss with a beautiful stranger in a brothel forces him to reconsider. When the mysterious woman is linked to an intrigue involving a missing Russian princess, however, Seb realizes her air of innocence was too good to be true.
Princess Anastasia Denisova has been hiding in London as plain 'Anna Brown'. With a dangerous traitor hot on her trail, her best option is to accept Wolff's offer of protection―and accommodation―at his gambling hell. But living in such close quarters, and aiding Wolff in his Bow Street cases, fans the flames of their mutual attraction. If Anya's true identity is revealed, does their romance stand a chance? Could a princess ever marry a rogue?

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/NetGalley, St. Martin's Press and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

My Thoughts
Oh how I loved this one! I love historical romances. There is something about reading them that really capture my heart. Bateman’s third installment to the Bow Street Bachelors was one such heart capturing read for me.

Getting to know Anya and Sebastien was a wonderful ride! They were both intriguing and absolutely amazing together. Turning the pages of their story, walking along side of them, feeling their emotions, was a fabulous ride, for sure!

Added to the wonderful characters is a touch of suspense and lots of passionate sparks flying off the pages. That made for great reading! I loved the style of writing Bateman uses and can’t wait to go back and read the first two in this series!

Kate wrote her first historical romance in response to a $1 bet with her husband who rashly claimed she’d ‘never finish the thing.’ She gleefully proved him wrong. Her books feature her favorite intelligent heroines, (badasses in bodices!) wickedly inappropriate banter, and heroes you want to both strangle and kiss.

Before writing romance, Kate was director and valuer at her own UK Auction House, Batemans in Stamford, Lincolnshire. She currently splits her time between Illinois and her native England and writes despite three inexhaustible children and that husband… who still owes her that dollar.
