"For fans of Victorian romance lovers"
In 1854, though young, he was a thief until a female
household caught him. The matriarch Hannah Gale took the
lad into her home and heart raising him into being a solid
citizen. Now twenty-six years later, Kit Fox is one of
England's top spies.
Kit's latest assignment is to infiltrate the retinue
accompanying visiting VIP King Gregory of Bororavia, who
simply wants to conquer the world. The English leadership
fears that Gregory has brought into their country
anarchists to cause trouble. Lily and Kit meet when he
asks her to dance at a gala. Lily sees Kit as the avenue
to escape marriage to her odious cousin Gregory. Kit sees
Lily as the avenue to gain entrance to the inner sanctuary
of her odious cousin Gregory. As they work together, Kit
and Lily fall in love, but danger is everywhere Gregory
goes as the visiting monarch will direct his minions to
kill even those allegedly close to his heart.
Victorian romance readers will take great delight in
CAPTURED INNOCENCE, a heated historical intrigue. The lead
characters will become fan favorites as they willingly walk
through land mines for love, freedom, and honor. This
intrepid duo makes the plot excitingly move forward.
Gregory is too hedonistically dumb and egocentric to be
taken serious as the next Napoleon. Still sub-genre fans
will feel entertainingly satiated by sizzling Susan
Sizemore's sensational story.
