    A Must Read!!

    Wow! A Counterfeit Heart by K.C. Bateman is a phenomenal historical romance. Ms. Bateman has once again impressed me with her story-telling skills. She has delivered a well-written book and loaded it with outstanding characters. Kudos to Ms. Bateman on her characters and dialog. Sabine is a French counterfeiter known as Philippe Lacorte. She leaves France and travels to London and presents herself to Richard, Viscount Lovell. Their story is packed with suspense, action, humor and sizzle. I loved this book from the first page to the last and can't wait to read my next book by K.C. Bateman. A Counterfeit Heart is book 3 of the Secrets and Spies Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

    Another Winning Romance by Bateman!

    I was thrilled to read another story in this series by Ms. Bateman and I was not disappointed. Richard, an agent for the Crown, and Sabine, a French counterfeiter for Napoleon in the last war, meet when Sabine boldly offers her forging services to him and England so that she can make a new life for herself. Neither one counted on falling for the other…madly and intensely…while trying to catch a couple of spies and thieves against the crown. Theirs was an exciting and unusual courtship that could not be denied, which had me at times wanting to slap them for their denseness and at others clap for their astuteness. A sigh-worthy romance! I sincerely hope this is not the end of the series.

    Fantastic story with wonderful characters!

    It is hard to believe this is only the third book released by this author....she is that good! K. C. Bateman develops such wonderful characters and creates such a fun, beautiful romance that entwines itself with events that had really happened in history that you feel like you are living in that moment. In this story, the heroine, Sabine de la Tour is leading a double life in France. To most people, she works in a print shop, but her best friend, Anton Carnaud, also knows that she is the mysterious Phillipe Lacorte, the notorious French counterfeiter. As one of the best counterfeiters in the world, Sabine can forge passports, official documents and even produce currency. Problem is, is that Sabine tends to be too honest and doesn't want to help the really bad people....which is why her and Anton are on the run trying to get to England so Anton can escape to America. Sabine needs to get some authentic money quickly to help Anton escape and has come up with a plan to do it....she just needs to expose herself to Richard Hampden, Viscount Lovell, the spy who has been trying to catch her alter ego. The first meeting between Sabine and Richard was priceless. There is nothing better than a female who is both smart and sassy especially when standing up to an arrogant male like Richard. Such great laugh out loud parts to the story! Of course it doesn't hurt when the chemistry between Sabine and Richard is off the charts! They both know that they cannot trust the other, but that can't stop their growing lust! When Richard finally accepts that Sabine is Phillipe Lacorte and agrees to do business with her in exchange for the money she needs, Sabine thinks she has the upper hand. Too bad Richard throws a wrench in her plans by forcing her to stay with him in his house. I just adored these two. It was obvious these two would end up together and when they did, it was explosive. I really enjoyed the plan of Richard's that Sabine had to help with. It was fun watching them have to work together to get to the same end result. And their final happy ending was just perfect for them! Overall, this was a fantastic story, with such wonderful characters and I just couldn't put it down.

    They are confronted by old enemies.

    I loved this story. I really liked A Raven's Heart, but I think I like this story better. Sabine, by necessity, has become a criminal, a forger. She had to survive in war torn Paris somehow. Now, she is going to go straight and to do that, she turns herself over to the one man who has been chasing her for months. Richard is so shocked to find the man he has been chasing is really a woman. A beautiful woman at that. They strike a bargain and Sabine agrees to help Richard catch a group of people who are trying to overthrow the English government. Along the way they are confronted with some old enemies and they find love.

    Just superb

    Completely, utterly enjoyable story, the third and last in the series unfortunately...I have so loved these characters and the Napoleonic era, brought to life with such a wealth of information..The intense emotional buildup was wonderful and the clever dialogue just made the story sing...I will happily re read this series, just too engrossing not to.
