Summary

From USA Today best-selling author C. J. Archer, this romantic historical mystery will take your breath away.

Seven years ago a woman with too many secrets and a man with too many lies fell in love. Then she left him.  

Isabel's quiet life as an assistant to one of London's famous apothecaries hides a deadly secret. A secret that could see her put on trial for witchcraft if the authorities uncover the truth. But when the authority figure who turns up at her shop is Sir Nicholas Merritt, she's at risk of losing more than her life. She could lose her heart and soul, and the man she loves.  

Royal spy Sir Nicholas Merritt can't believe his luck when he stumbles upon Isabel during an investigation. He's been searching for her for seven long years and now he has her again, in his bed and his life. Except she's resisting all the way. Worse still, she's somehow tangled up with a plot to assassinate the queen. To hold onto her this time, he must find out why she left him while hiding a secret of his own that could tear them apart forever.

Good, but not my favorite CJ Archer book

I’ve listened to all of CJ Archers audiobooks and this is my least favorite. I felt like the sexual attraction between the two main characters was soo forced. At every turn they were trying to jump one another or touch each other’s most private places in a time when that was not socially acceptable in public. It just felt forced. I wanted more witchcraft, more spying intrigue and more romance, not just sex.

Nice story poorly performed

I liked the story, the characters were lacking a little in depth but overall it was an enjoyable plot. The narration was awful. The first time I started to listen I only got through 15 minutes and I had to put it down because it was so annoying. I managed to give it another try and the story managed to pull me in enough for me to listen despite the poor narrative. The voices female between characters can be very confusing. The pitch and inflection, even the speed for various events in the story was too monotonous. This narrator could become a good one if they were to breath a little more life into the narration. The characters were a little predictable but the writer did provide some interesting twists. As for the supernatural aspect, this is a good story for those who prefer “The Good Witch” level of supernatural. Nice steamy scenes without launching fully into soft porn. A Pleasant read/listen overall.

Not worth the time

The adult main characters fumbling with each other like hormone crazed teenagers ineffectively distracted from a weak story line. Struggled to finish the book. I'm normally CJ Archer fan and have devoured her other series but this was just awful.
