characters Rogue Spy

E and innocent victim from a ruthless French fanatic But she finds an old colleague already on the case Pax Old friendship turns to new love and as dark secrets reappear Pax is left with a choice go rogue from the Service or lose Camille for eve. This is the kind of romance that rivals the best popular mainstream fiction in complexity of plot and characters and in writing I feel like a big girl when I read Joanna Bourne She gets my brain engaged in addition to the usual heart engagement of most other romances This is due mostly to her exceptional ability as a writer but also I suspect because she doesn t crank out novels at the speed of sound unlike many other romance authors who shall be namelessSo far up to year 2014 there have been only 5 books in Bourne s Spymaster series not counting Her Ladyship s Companion from 1983 which although it features Hawk is not exactly the Hawk of her recent work This new one ROGUE SPY can be read as a standalone but it s much interesting and challenging to read each one in the context of the other four Two things make this challenging1 The first Spymaster book was published in 2008 and this latest in 2014 That s a long time to retain information especially when reading 100s of other books at the same time2 The books were not written in chronological order of when they actually took place The Spymaster s Lady Spymaster 2 was first published in 2008 and takes place in France and England in 1802 My Lord and Spymaster The Spymaster Series Book 3 was also first published in 2008 and takes place in London in 1811 The Forbidden Rose Spymaster 1 was first published in 2010 and takes place in Paris in 1794 The Black Hawk Spymaster 4 was first published in 2011 and takes place in France and England over the years 1794 1818 Now this ROGUE SPY published in 2014 takes place in London in 1802So you see that Bourne has had her readers going back and forth in time although there have been many recurring figures in the novels Spies Doyle and Hawker figure in all of them Grey in two and Paxton our hero here can be found in two of the other books THE SPYMASTER S LADY and THE FORBIDDEN ROSEPaxton has always been a fascinating character Recruited by the French as a member of the Cache children trained from early years to become spies for the French Revolution he later becomes a spy working for the British Is he a double agent What is his allegiance What we do know is that he s a trained killer working often as a hit man for the British He s also an enigma Known as Devoir to the French he becomes Thomas Paxton to the British and neither name is really hisThen there s heroine Cami Leyland aka Verite who is not really either of those names either She also was drafted into the Cache and she and Paxton became close when training together at the Coach House in Paris as children to become French Revolutionary spies They later of course go their separate ways and now as adults find themselves together once againThese two are complicated conflicted people The story is complicated and complex as a spy story and at the same time is a beautiful love story of two people who must learn to trust each other again even when evidence that they shouldn t stands in the wayThere are lots of trust issues and uestions here Should fellow British agents trust Pax Should they trust Cami Should Pax and Cami trust each other What are the true identities of PaxDevoir and CamiVerite Who is the bad guy French spy The Merchant What does he really want This spy story has a complex plot that will satisfy the most adventurous readerThere s really spy story than romance here but it s a uality love story running through the pages that is uite lovely and satisfies a romance reader

Rogue Spy

For years he's lived a lie Now it's time to tell the truth even if it costs him the woman he loved Ten years ago Thomas Paxton was a boy sent by revolutionary France to infiltrate the British Intelligence Service Now his sense of honour brings h. 35 starsI ve read two books by this author one I really liked probably because it was my first ever historical romancespy book The Spymaster s Lady and one that I really didn t care for My Lord and Spymaster This book fell somewhere in the middle between those two When the two main characters first meet it s definitely interesting However the main spy mission ends up not being as exciting and the romance never builds upon a real relationship just their shared background and mutual attraction for each other So this was good but not uite great

Im back to London alone and unarmed to confess But instead of facing the gallows he's given one last assignment to prove his loyalty Lovely lying former French spy Camille Leyland is dragged from rural obscurity by threats and blackmail to rescu. 35 stars The second half was a lot better than the first half of this book IMO It took a long time to come to the boil 3 stars for the first half 4 stars for the second half I m reading this series in chronological order rather than the order in which the books were written Not sure whether that s the best way to go about it But anyway I ve started like that so I ll keep going So this is the third one I ve readI tried this book once before about a month ago but put it down after it hadn t really grabbed me But I really like this writer and I m determined to read the whole series So I picked it up again And this time I pushed through and I did get to the good stuff The first half of the book just didn t connect with me that much Camille has been hiding her real identity for most of her life When she is suddenly put in danger she runs into Thomas Paxton a British spy And a childhood friend Like Cami Thomas has also hidden his past deep within him Both of them suffered abusive childhoods when they were French Caches made into mini spies by their cruel masters The events of their childhoods have shaped them I found Cami s character a little too cool and inaccessible She had built walls around herself and unfortunately these kept the reader out as well Although in the end I did like both Cami and Thomas But for much of the book there was too much spy plot and not enough romance for my taste But as the book moved on there were interesting revelations about both MCs I liked that Thomas was view spoiler a virgin Also that his father was the Merchant Then that the Merchant was a well educated Englshmantraitor and over the heir to an earl And that Thomas really loved Cami and had no interest in all of the rich inheritance she was heir to hide spoiler
