The writer weaves in historical fact and a plausible scenario brilliantly. Any Russia watcher will see the blurred lines between reality and fiction in this gripping novel. Narrator was perfect for the manuscript.

Good but not as strong as first three in series

The heroine was the strongest of all of the heroines in the series. The hero was clever. There was less romantic tension and less tension in the mystery. simply meant there are fewer emotional highs and lows moments of humour. The resolution was appropriate. I think it's a good book, not a great book.

This is a sweet book. The meet-cute of these characters is funny and endearing. There is good but not great chemistry between them. all gets tied up neatly at the end. The heroine is strong and the hero is gallant. Plot moved forward nicely. Solid book overall.

The story has a strong heroine and a less than polished hero with a heart of gold. Plenty of moments of sweet humour and high heat. the ending allowed for both heroes to grow and develop. The heroine remained strong and independent. Loveable supporting characters. The narration was good but sounded like the narrator had a cold or was getting over one..... but still listen-able.

Unique story

A reluctant hero trying to live up to his father. Strong character development throughout. First half was strong on character development and the second half strong in plot. Didn't get bogged down with unnecessary world building. Good pacing with some battle scene and a court martial. not your average scifi book. Narrator was good.

The tone of this book is excellent. A jaded detective who has lost everything and knows it. The world building is strong and there are many moving parts in the plot. Good pacing with key moments of dark humour. Great narrator. Characters have agency and the end is nuanced and wraps everything up nicely.

Great way to end series

Stronger heroine and interesting hero compared to previous books. Great way to end a wonderful series. Action filled. This one is heavier on the 'thank God' and 'sent a prayer' but it's still a good boom and a great series. Narrator is same throughput series and is excellent.

Not her finest story but still funny.

I love Lynsay Sands and will continue to buy her books. The plot was very thin with the hero being driven by jealousy and the heroine demuring to him and tending injured animals. it would have worked better of there was more for the characters to do, different motivations, more layers to them. That said, it is still Lynsay Sands which means there were a few very funny moments in it. The narration was excellent.

A lovely story

Plenty of humour and a strong heroine. The Duke is grumpy.... but then aren't they all. Excellent narration. This story focuses more on the romance and does neglect a bit the non-romance plot... but the ending is nice.

Another hit

Great to see familiar characters in the universe. Terrific pacing with believable stakes. Good mix of SciFi with politics and alliances.
