...this romance is compelling with such vivid characters and adventure that it is quite easy to get wrapped up...
- In D'Tale Magazine
When I heard the author was turning the female villain of the first book in the series into the heroine of this one, I found it hard to believe. Abigail deserved a nasty fate, not a happy ending - or so I thought. I'm delighted to admit I was mistaken - Ms Carter brilliantly persuaded me to take Abigail's side.

The heroine is no blushing virgin, instead she is a strong-willed, worldly-wise and much talked about villainess.The hero is as dashing and devious as the blurb suggests. Fast-paced adventure!
- Juanita Kees (author The Gods of Oakleigh and Calhoun Customs Garage series)
Well constructed and enjoyably spicy regency romance (with) a well defined sense of time of place. I enjoy (Carter’s) adept use of language, well drawn characters and relationship building. Although this book could be read alone, reading it as a follow up to Moonstone Obsession (is) even better.

The powerful sequel to Moonstone Obsession
For her unwitting participation in a plot to embezzle the Exchequer, Lady Abigail Houghall has spent the last two years exiled to the city of Bath. A card sharp, sometime mistress, and target of scandalous gossip by the London Beau Monde, Lady Abigail plots to escape her gilded cage as well as the prudish society that condemns her. But the times are not easy. France is in chaos, the King has been executed, and whispers of a similar revolution are stirring in England. And because of Abigail’s participation in the robbery plot, the Spymaster of England is blackmailing her into passing him information about the members of London’s upper crust.
When dashing English spy Daniel Ridgeway takes a seat at her card table and threatens to expose her for cheating, Abigail has no choice but to do as he demands: seduce the leader of the revolutionaries and learn what she can about their plot. As she’s drawn deeper into Daniel’s dangerous world—from the seedy backstreets of London to the claustrophobic catacombs of a war-torn Paris—she realizes an even more dangerous fact: she’s falling in love with her seductive partner. And the stakes of this game might just be too high—even for her.
