The GoodReads summary:
A rare beauty, raised in the exotic heart of the Ottoman Empire, Mari Sinclair knows it's time to end her career as a British spy when she narrowly avoids a brush with death. Unfortunately her employers think otherwise—and they are not above using blackmail to keep Mari in the Game.
Saddled with a handsome, duty-obsessed "minder" to ensure that she completes—and survives—one last mission, Mari is incensed...for her guardian, Major Bennett Prestwood, is simply too dedicated, too unbending, and too disarmingly attractive. But in the face of dark secrets and deadly treacheries, as the true peril to Mari is slowly revealed, loyal soldier Bennett realizes that, to save and win this extraordinary woman, he will have to do the unthinkable and break the rules—rules that passion and desire have suddenly, irrevocably changed.
I know, I know--definitely not my usual kind of book. But I'm actually really excited for it. It just sounds so . . . exotic and exciting. I mean, it's got British spies and the Ottoman Empire--how often do you come across those in fiction? Plus, let's face it, Major Bennett sounds pretty dang attractive.
