About the book:
The Stakes Are High, The Players in Position…
Catherine Ashcroft leads a quiet life caring for her precocious seven-year-old daughter, until a late-night visitor delivers a startling ultimatum. She will match wits with the enigmatic Earl of Somerton, and it’s not just her heart that’s in danger.
Let the Games Begin…
Spymaster Sebastian Danvers, Earl of Somerton, is famous for his cunning. Few can outwit him and even fewer dare challenge him-until now. After returning to his country estate, his no-nonsense neighbor turns her seductive wiles on him- but why would a respectable widow like Catherine risk scandal for a few passionate nights in his bed?
CHECKMATE, MY LORD is full of mystery, action, and romance. Catherine Ashcroft is determined to find out what really happened to her husband and she knows that the Earl of Somerton is the only one who can help her. After she asks for his help she finds herself in the middle of a nightmare with spies, kidnappers, and secrets. I loved both Catherine and Sebastian. They are tough and independent, but so very lonely. It’s the loneliness that they see in each other that pulls them to each other. The story moves at a steady pace, keeping the reader wanting more with every page. The attraction between Catherine and Sebastian is intense and sexy. CHECKMATE, MY LORD is book two in the Nexus series, but can be read is a stand-alone.
the book girl gives CHECKMATE, MY LORD a 4/5
