The most dangerous journeys…

Jeremy Pratt is a spy for the Crown, and one of the best. He had been in more dangerous situations than he can admit, and has always come out unscathed. But escorting his colleague’s cousin home to her family, even in disguise, just might be beyond his skills, and the temptation beyond his ability to withstand.

May be ones of the heart…

Helen Dalton is convinced there is more to this man escorting her than meets the eye, and something familiar about him, as well. There is only one man in the world who looks at her so intensely, banters with her so easily, and makes her blush so furiously. And when he manages a daring and heroic rescue, she wonders if she ever knew him at all.

Other Books In This Series


Spies. Danger. Intrigue. Romance. All of it comes together with great characters and delightful banter in Connolly’s latest London League novel.

Jeremy and Helen have great chemistry and a teasing fondness that had me grinning often. Once the kisses started I was swooning and grinning at the same time! Their banter is such fun (the kicks!!!) yet the romantic scenes sizzle with breathless tension. A great combination of tender, fun, and swoony!

The danger and intrigue are nicely done too, timed just right to build the tension and keep you on the edge of your seat. The ending will have you frantically impatient for the next book, especially if you have read the other books in the series. (Don’t worry if you haven’t though. The author does a good job of catching you up.)

Bottom Line: You’ll hold your breath for more than one reason while reading By Hook or By Rook – from swoony kisses to nail-biting danger and a last line that will have you gasping out loud. This is a delightful journey from start to finish and a quick read perfect for a summer night.

(I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.)

My Rating: 4 stars / love it!

KissingBook Level: 4 / keep those fans and fainting couches handy

Reviewer’s Note: Readers may want to be aware that there is some scattered, mild cursing in this book.
