Brilliant Egyptologist Alexandra Quinn is stunned when the man who’d shattered her young heart rescues her from an intruder at the last minute. Forced to work with the rakish Lord, they must identify a cunning murderer who’s left a blood-drenched trail from Cairo to London. Alex knows better than to trust Benedict, but the wicked promise in his kiss tempts her.

Benedict Weston, Viscount Marlsbrook, never wanted to be a hero. For years, he’s plundered antiquities in his quest to restore his family’s debt-ridden estate. Now, a killer has targeted the only woman he’s ever loved—the woman he craves with a soul-deep hunger. He’ll do whatever it takes to protect Alex—even from himself.

Each book in the Her Majesty’s Most Secret Service series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Received in exchange for a honest review.

this was a great addition to the series. I enjoyed the suspense aspect while seeing Benedict admit he is in love and questioning himself and his ways. He had reasons for doing what he did that Alex didn’t like but it did put a drift in their relationship.
