A case of secret identities finds reunited lovers on opposite sides of the law in this fun, flirty Regency romance.
There's only one case Bow Street agent Alex Harland, Earl of Melton, hasn't cracked: the identity of the mysterious woman who stole a kiss from him before he left for war. He's neither forgotten—nor forgiven—her for leaving him wanting. When he starts investigating the Nightjar, an elusive London jewel thief, he keeps running into the alluring Emmy Danvers, who stirs feelings he hasn't felt in years.
Even though Emmy's loved Alex for years, she can’t risk revealing her heart, or her identity as the Nightjar. With Alex on her case, Emmy knows that her secrets are in danger of being discovered. Their cat and mouse game heats up with every interaction, but when Emmy’s reputation—and life—is at risk, will Alex realize that some rules are made to be broken for love?
I was provided a review copy; this did not influence my opinion of the book.
❝He wanted to both conquer her and protect her. To capture her and keep her safe. ❞
Determined to save her family, Emmy Danvers is forced to continue her father’s passion. As the Night Jar, she catches the attention of Bow Street agent Alex Harland, Earl of Melton. Alex finds himself in a dreadful situation … prosecute the Night Jar and lose his second chance with her or circumvent the law, and make her his.
❝He wanted her, with that clever mind and tart mouth,❞
Emmy was spunky and fiercely loyal to her family. She was a force to be reckoned with. I loved her strong will and sassiness. She was the perfect match for the cocksure Alex, who admired her wit and bravery. I loved the push and pull between Alex’s desire to do what was right and what he wanted. Emmy was the one who’d gotten away all those years before, and now that he had her, he couldn’t imagine a life without her in it.
The second book in the Bow Street Bachelors series, To Catch an Earl hit all the right notes!
