When an assassin murders her lover, Gabrielle de Beauclaire heads to England, hell-bent on revenge against the man who ordered the hit. She tries to convince English spymaster Nathaniel Praed to make her an agent of the secret service, but he refuses to hire a woman. Their mutual manipulation soon becomes a sexual minefield, however; they despise each other, but passion overtakes them. Jane Feather's erotic tale is propelled by the complicated relationship between Gabrielle and Nathaniel, and their all-encompassing desire is brought to life by Gemma Dawson, whose breathy performance marvelously portrays their full-bodied lust.
Masquerading as a widowed French comtesse, Gabrielle de Beaucaire returns to England to destroy the man responsible for her lover's death and sets out to seduce Nathaniel Praed, Britain's greatest spymaster, into letting her become a secret agent.
