Summary of the Book:

Where potions run technology and passions run deep.

A barmaid with a rare talent.

Paris, 1882. Barmaid and potions expert Elle Deschamps knows a worrying secret: the supply of the magic serum that gives her potions their potency is running dangerously low. When a mysterious gentleman hires her to help search out new sources for serum, she jumps at the chance to earn her way to a life of less drudgery.

A spy on a mission.

Agent of the British crown Henry Ainsworth has a simple directive: end the potions crisis, by any means necessary. Posing as a bodyguard, he joins the beguiling potions expert on her continent-hopping expedition, determined to protect her from the unknown foes who wish to thwart her.

A love neither can resist.

With time of the essence, Elle and Henry must rely on one another to avert disaster. As enemies close in, they find the greatest danger of all may not be to their lives, but to their hearts.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I love a good steampunk adventure. I enjoyed the characters Elle and Henry. It was Elle who is trying to seduce Henry and from what I read he rather enjoyed the idea. It is not your normal romance there is a lot of adventure and intrigue involved and they have to be close together since they are on a trip. It makes me crave more of their time together. I will have to look more into Catherine’s body of work.

My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
