Book 4 in The Rogue Hearts Series
The Stranger She Married, The Guise of a Gentleman, A Perfect Secret, The Suspect’s Daughter
“She might be innocent of her father’s schemes, but no woman was innocent of being a…woman.”
Jocelyn was in a situation to keep aside her love dream in order to help her father in the political field. But when she came to meet the gentleman called Grant Amesbury, her love dreams got reawakened. He suspects that her father might have murdered the prime minister. He cannot convince the courageous lady and she is ready to do anything to get her father’s name clear in this case. She was even ready to work with Grant. The description of the story in the book is found ot be wonderful and interesting.
Jocelyn is not in London to catch a husband. Not this year at least. No, she intends to do everything she can to help her father’s political career. But the entrance of the handsome Grant Amesbury threatens more than her heart. He is convinced that her father is guilty of plotting murder. Determined to find evidence of it. Almost as determined as she is to prove him wrong. Grant has no time for women; they were all the same anyway. So why is he looking forward to seeing Jocelyn more than he is in doing his work to convict her father? He’s attracted, yes, but he’s not fit for a lady. Not that he’d trust one again. Besides, her father is named in a conspiracy to murder the prime minister. As secrets begin to be revealed, the danger rises, both to their lives and their future.
My Opinion: This was a wonderful adventure through love and intrigue. Though part of a wonderful series, it can hold its own as a stand-alone. A full cast, from past books and new to this story, fill in a rich storyline. There is great action, with excellent twists and turns, and a lovely romance. Well researched and well told. The characters are rich, with good and bad characteristics that make them relatable and worthy of rooting for. Hatch has done it again with another wonderful book I’d highly recommend. It makes me want to sit and marathon read the whole series.
I received a free copy of this book to review. No other compensation was given. The summary and review are 100% my own.
