This is book 3 in the Hellions of High Street series (Book 1 and Book 2)
Caro Sloane is finding herself at loose ends now that her two sisters have gotten themselves married. She and her mother are staying in Bath where she meets her new friend Isobel. Isobel and Caro are returning from an outing when they are attacked by ruffians. They are soon rescued by none other than Alec McClellan, the Scot that she exchanged verbal barbs with while at a house party.
Alec McClellan can't believe his half-sister's new friend is none other than Caro Sloane. He has closed off his heart after being heartbroken by his wife and she seems to be the only one who can put a dent in it. He is trying to find out who is a traitor to his cause and doesn't have time for the feelings that she provokes.
Will Alec and Caro find proof they need to capture the traitor and will Alec finally open his heart to love again?
I was eagerly awaiting Caro's story and hoping that Alec would be her HEA. Cara Elliot did not disappoint me! I loved the bickering between the two of them. It has me laughing out loud at their antics. I also loved the added mystery in the story and the fact that Caro was not afraid to get involved and take some of the sleuthing into her own hands (much to Alec's dismay!) The conclusion to this series was very satisfying! I would recommend all three books to any lover of historical romance.
