    Victorian Romantic Suspense

    Sophie Atherton is working undercover as a medium. The man she is working for is suspected of being involved in the deaths of several men who are close to the queen. Her job is to find out who is responsible for the murders. Professor Gavin Stanwyck has returned from his adventures in Egypt to find a good friend is believed to have committed suicide. That, he will never believe unless he was driven to it by the unscrupulous medium he was seeing. A grand adventure for our heroine and an intriguing Victorian romantic suspense. A mystery for us to solve and grave danger for our protagonists. This is part of a series but easily read as a stand alone. It will fascinate you from first to last page. I loved it.

    Exciting Romance Read

    'When a Lady Dares' by Tara Kingston is book Two in the "Her Majesty's Most Secret Service" series. This is the story of Sophie Atherton and Gavin Stanwyck. I have read the previous book but feel this can easily be a standalone book. Sophie is undercover as a medium's assistant when she meets Gavin. Sophie works for the Crown and also works as a journalist for the Herald under a different name. So she is used to repeating lies and knowing when someone is lying. So when she meets Gavin who is a treasure hunter she knows that he isn't telling the truth. Gavin is looking for answers on his friend's Peter death. To get those answers, Gavin poses as a Treasure Hunter. Gavin thinks a Spiritualist may have the information he is looking so he needs to hide who he really is. But Gavin has found the Spiritualist assistant, Sophie is a temptation he might not be able to resit. This book was a great mystery mixed with romance story that once you got a few pages in you wanted to see what would happen next. Gavin and Sophie I thought had good chemistry and both were very likable characters. I enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more from Ms. Kingston. "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

    Dare to get swept away!

    This was the second installment in the Her Majesty’s Most Secret Service series, and it was just as delightful as the first. I loved seeing Sophie get her own story. This story did not lack for great, suspenseful moments and captivating intrigue. I enjoyed the verbal sparring between Sophie and Gavin and thought it added just the right balance of sass to enhance their obvious romantic spark. These were characters that I found easy to adore and root for. The plot moved along at a good pace, and Kingston's descriptions did a wonderful job of making you feel the Regency charm and flair. I am SO eager and ready for the next book. I never get bored with danger, deception, romance and royal intrigue! *I received a complimentary ARC of this book from NetGalley & Entangled Publishing, LLC in order to read and provide a voluntary, unbiased and honest review, should I choose to do so.
