The Forbidden Rose: Spymaster 1 (A series of sweeping, passionate historical romance)

Joanna Bourne returns to the French Revolution, pairing espionage and burning romance to create an unforgettable love story. For fans of Stephanie Laurens, Elizabeth Hoyt and Poldark, this is a must-read.

The only person she can trust with her life … is the man who trusts no one.

Marguerite de Fleurignac, once a glittering French aristocrat, is on the run, disguised as Maggie Duncan, British governess. Penniless and alone, she falls into the hands of a compelling stranger with a sinister scar. But why does he risk his life to save her?

William Doyle, England’s premier spy, has a score to settle with the de Fleurignacs. When he rescues Maggie, he knows her to be the last, dangerous flower of a noble line. Drawn inexorably into the intrigue and madness of revolutionary Paris, they gamble on a love neither of them will admit. When the dance of deception and desire is over, will they betray the one another?

For more spellbinding Spymasters romance, look for the other titles by Joanna Bourne: The Spymaster’s Lady, My Lord and Spymaster, The Black Hawk and Rogue Spy.
