'Joanna Bourne's voice is distant, fresh, and engaging.'
- Madeline Hunter, New York Times bestselling author

He is her enemy.
He is her lover.
He is her only hope.

Someone is stalking agent Justine DeCabrillac through London's gray streets. Under cover of the rain, the assassin strikes-and Justine staggers to the door of the one man who can save her. The man she one loved. The man she hated. Adrian Hawkhurst.

Adrian wanted the treacherous beauty known as 'Owl' back in his bed, but not wounded and clinging to life. Now, as he helps her heal, the two must learn to trust each other to confront the hidden menace that's trying to kill them-and survive long enough to explore the passion simmering between them one again . . .

Acclaim for The Forbidden Rose

'Addictively readable . . . A flawless romance in which an espionage-steeped plot is deftly balanced with a lusciously sensual love story.' - Booklist

A smart historical romance. Witty dialogue and great characters. This is an integral part of the Spy-masters series where each book adds depth to the secondary characters who become the H and h in this story.

I enjoyed this, the plot line was interesting, and for a historical romance it had a bit more to get your teeth into. The author has glossed over huge parts of both the H and h past, I felt the years they were apart needed more detail, to really understand who they have become. Still a good book, though I do not think it matches up to her earlier works.
