Goodreads blurb:

        A second battle-hardened, completely unstoppable, all-male hero, an ex-officer of the Crown, confronts the deadly enemy known only as the Black Cobra.

He's focused on his mission, then sees a lady he never dreamed he'd see again—with an assassin on her heels.

She secretly followed him, unaware her path is deadly—or that she'll join him to battle a treacherous foe.

Through ever-present peril, through passion, desire, and ecstasy, they race to reach England—and their destiny.

My Thoughts:

       I liked this book. The way she decided to go after Gareth to see if her feelings for him are real. She wants him for him and he thinks she was in love with James.

   She keeps a diary with how she is feeling and her thoughts on how Gareth is acting towards her and what her thoughts are on that and their situation with the cultists. After they hook up with Gareth's bodyguards they make a copy of the copy of the letter so that if they have to give up the copy in order to survive they can turn over the scroll holder and still have a copy to try and figure out why the Black Cobra wants this letter so bad.

  After Emily risks her life to save Gareth's and the bodyguards, Gareth figures out that he loves Emily and will never let her go.
