Some secrets are not meant to be shared.
Catherine Bennet, known as Kitty to close friends and family, knows this better than anyone. She also knows that she will never marry and it never bothered her before she met Lord George Kerr at Elizabeth and Darcy’s wedding. He’s determined to breach the walls of defense she’d carefully constructed around her heart, and she’s just as determined to stay the course.

Some secrets cannot be shared
Lord George Kerr knows this better than anyone. For five years, as a spy for His Majesty the King, he played the part of a Rake, concealing his espionage activities beneath a blanket of brothels, drink and loose women. Even though he’s forced to resume his regular life within London’s finest society, he still must keep some things hidden.

One thing he does not hide is his attraction to Miss Catherine Bennet of Longbourn. Enraptured by her beauty and warmth of character, he plunges headlong into winning her heart, only to find it carefully guarded and she’s unwilling to give him even a small pinch of hope.

Some things are beyond your control
When circumstances bring Kitty’s secret into the open, she fears the tenuous bonds of friendship she’s forged with Lord George will be lost forever along with whatever love he proclaims to have for her. With the very lives of England’s vast network of spies working undercover in Bonaparte’s France hanging in the balance, she’s forced to face her worst nightmare.

Her secret is laid bare, can he love her enough to overcome what he learns?

Spies, espionage, and a handsome rake? SIGN ME UP!!! Catherine was such a refreshing read! I am in love!!!  I am a sucker for all things Austen so I am always eager to read adaptions of any kind! I feel Kitty is often the forgotten sister, the one we never know much about, I always feel so sorry for her. 🙁  I was so thrilled when this book arrived on my kindle, I was so enraptured that I read it in one sitting!! Intrigue, mystery, romance and a swoony rouge, Catherine was an adventure any Austenite would devour and any suspense lovers will enjoy. I LOVED IT!!!  It was sooooo GOOD!!!

  1. I rather suspect you may have enjoyed it, Margie! Everything I’ve read about it so far is making me want to read it myself more and more, especially as I enjoyed Caroline a vast deal.

  2. DarcyBennett says:

    It sounds really good.

  3. Vesper Meikle says:

    Looking forward to reading this, enjoy reading about the minor characters

  4. I’m glad that there is another story featuring Kitty Bennet as the main protagonist. I agree with your view that Kitty and Mary are often overlook as there have three other sisters who features more prominently in canon.

  5. I’m glad you loved this story so much!! It’s really filled with so many intriguing aspects. Thanks for highlighting them all in your review!!
