Genre: Historical Romance, England, Victorian Period
The Sutherland sisters befriended Princess Victoria and vowed to be Her Majesty’s Secret Servants. Two have saved Victoria’s life and now, one will save her romance. Though with a slower start than the previous novels, Chase’s story draws readers back into the sisters’ lives and gradually picks up the pace. The well-drawn characters and the addition of an ancient Celtic curse, sizzling passion and family secrets are exactly what fans expect of this adventurous series.
Victoria calls on Holly Sutherland to reclaim a stolen stallion that is to be a gift to Prince Fredrick. Holly becomes part of the Ascot set to unmask the thief. When she and her sisters are invited to Masterfield Park, Holly realizes it’s her chance to find the missing colt, but instead she lands in the arms of Colin Ashworth, Earl of Drayton and the heir to the Duke of Masterfield, the man she suspects is the thief. As a Cambridge professor Colin should be above suspicion, but the colt is a descendent of his family’s fabled Ashworth stallions.
Colin is enchanted by Holly. His kisses ignite a fire in her, and she follows him when he leaves the house party. Once Holly joins Colin she understands the reason behind his actions and though sworn to protect the queen, she has fallen in love with the man who holds the key to the theft. Swept up in passion, Colin and Holly become enmeshed in the Ashworth curse as they uncover secrets from the Suthlerland past that threaten their love, lives and mission.
