I give this book 3 stars.
This book is about a spy who gets left for dead, a destitute Princess (Dagmar) and her companion. Dagmar and Julia have to leave Copenhagen, so that Dagmar does not end up in a convent, so they have to find a way to get passage on a ship to England without any money. The only way is for Dagmar to marry an officer/sailor, so that they will have free passage. So luckily Julia, Dagmars companion finds Leo injured in the Princess’s back garden, they bring him in but the doctor declares that he will not live, so Dagmar sees their ticket to freedom by marrying Leo before he dies.
However, Dagmar tends to Leo so thoroughly that he lives and this is their story of how they found love, deception and murder!
For as long as she can remember, Katie MacAlister has loved reading. Growing up in a family where a weekly visit to the library was a given, Katie spent much of her time with her nose buried in a book. Despite her love for novels, she didn’t think of writing them until she was contracted to write a non-fiction book about software. Since her editor refused to allow her to include either witty dialogue or love scenes in the software book, Katie swiftly resolved to switch to fiction, where she could indulge in world building, tormenting characters, and falling madly in love with all her heroes.
Two years after she started writing novels, Katie sold her first romance, Noble Intentions. More than thirty books later, her novels have been translated into numerous languages, been recorded as audiobooks, received several awards, and are regulars on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. She also writes for the young adult audience as Katie Maxwell.
Katie lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and dogs, and can often be found lurking around online.
