This was a really fantastic book! I've seen her other books around, and I think I own some of them, but this is the first time that I've read a Brenda Joyce book that I can remember. It won't be my last, but it'll probably be a while till I read another, what with all those great books around!
So the situation where they're on different sides, well, yeah, it sucks. Because then it adds in a bit of the forbidden love thing, which is pretty hard for people to resist! So usually, they don't. Or they fail. A bit of both in this book!
True, that this book had the same basic plot as most romances, which yeah, there's only so many. But each one has something or things unique to it, from the author and the writing, to the characters of the story, to the specific details!
Really enjoyed how it ended, that was a pretty happy ending. This book was about spying and about trust, and about two people falling love with each other, and it was just so really great to read it! I just enjoyed it so much!
