“Ainsley Douglas has been asked by Queen Victoria to stop a blackmailer by finding some missing love letters. Ainsley has followed the blackmailer to a houseparty at the home of Hart MacKenzie. Her search leads her to Cameron MacKenzie's bedroom where she is found by Cameron. Cameron has been obsessed with Ainsley since he discovered her in his bedroom six years ago. Now that history is repeating itself, he isn't about to let her go this time. Convincing Ainsley into letting him help find the missing letters is just what he needs to stay close to her.
This is a historical romance with lots of things going on. Cameron suffered abuse from his former wife and now has some major emotional issues. He asks Ainsley to become his mistress because he knows he will never marry again. Ainsley is caught between her duty to the Queen and her feelings for Cameron. Cameron's son, Daniel, wants to see his father happy, but doesn't want Ainsley to get hurt. The blackmail plot really doesn't take up a lot of time in this story. A second story thread is about Cameron training a racehorse which was abused by its owner. Overall I enjoyed this book a lot more than the previous one in the series. My rating: 4 Stars.
Enjoyed this one too !
