Facing the Enemy - Blog Tour and Giveaway
This is the first of two blog tours I will be participating in for this book. This one will be my review and later on I will have an author interview. I was thrilled to be able to participate with this book. This is the kind of suspense that will keep you on edge as the story unfolds.
Lady Elise Henderson lives two separate lives. At home in Scotland, she’s the titled daughter of the Marquess of Roxbury, an heiress in her own right. In London, however, she’s Elise Taylor, a top MI6 operative for the “home office.” But when a devastating accident threatens to end her career, Elise is left with far too much time for self-reflection and the regret of a decision made long ago that features one man: fellow MI6 agent Harry Benson.
Harry Benson, the son of servants, has loved Elise for the better part of a decade. But life took them on separate journeys until their worlds converged once more. An immediate assignment to the Scottish Borders leaves Harry little time to make provisions for his small, rambunctious son, Sammy. Harry knows only one person he can rely on for the boy’s care—Elise. When Elise brings Sammy to her ancestral estate, she never imagines that a nemesis from her past looms in the shadows, hungry for revenge. Stalked at every turn, Elise and Harry discover that fighting their feelings for one another is futile, but can they survive long enough to get another shot at true love?
The villain in this is cold and calculating, the very worst sort. He added to the tension in the story.
Elise is the ultimate MI6 agent. She trained Harry. Harry was her college love and she rejected him due to her parents. This is their second chance. Elise travels with Harry to his next assignment so she can recuperate from an injury sustained on the job. She ends up minding his 8 year old Sammy who is a handful.
The suspense that followed swallowed me up and wouldn’t let go through the end of the story. I loved this story. The chemistry was perfect and realistic. The story was excellently written and was a pleasure to read.
Sammy was a light in this story and he brought a faith that could only be brought by a child.
