This was a quick and entertaining story the jumps right into action with first scene – an underground fencing club match between the American Lady Raven (Olivia) and the British Bulldog (Nigel). Olivia is a skilled translator who works for the United Nations. Nigel is a British Lord and and operative for MI5. She has no idea who he really is when she plays dirty during their fencing match, but she’s going to be enlightened rather quickly.
Both main characters were likable and well-defined, and the banter between them was nicely done. The story was action-packed and had some mystery and suspense, and it moved along at a fast pace. I think I would have enjoyed if it was a little bit longer because it all wrapped up pretty quickly, but it was definitely long enough to provide a complete book experience.
I’ll be looking forward to the next book in this series, which I’m assuming will focus on somebody else related to Baker Street. Be aware that this book contains some scenes of spanking, domestic discipline, and D/s power exchange, but it was pretty mild for the genre.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book, in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.
