Neither kink nor curse can stop a woman with a mission.

Cecily Harrowsmith, secret agent extraordinaire, is a woman on a mission. When the remote Indian kingdom of Rajasthan refused to remit its taxes to the Empire, Her Majesty imposed an embargo. Deprived of the energy-rich mineral viridium, essential for modern technology and development, Rajasthan was expected to quickly give in and resume its payments. Yet after three years, the rebellious principality still has not knuckled under. Cecily undertakes the difficult journey to the rugged, arid land of the Raj puts to determine just how it has managed to survive, and if possible to convince the country to return to the Empire’s embrace. Instead, she’s taken captive by a brigand who turns out to be the ruler’s half-brother Pratan and delivered into the hands of the sexy but sadistic Rajah Amir, who expertly mingles torture and delight in his interrogation of the voluptuous interloper.

Cursed before birth by Amir’s jealous mother, Pratan changes to a ravening wolf whenever the moon is full. Cecily uncovers the counter-spell that can reverse the effects of the former queen’s hex and tries to trade that information for her freedom. Drawn to the fierce wolf-man and sympathising with his suffering, she volunteers to serve as the sacrifice required by the ritual—offering her body to the beast. In return, the Rajah reveal Rajasthan’s amazing secret source of energy. In the face of almost impossible odds, Cecily has accomplished the task entrusted to her by the Empire. But can she really bear to leave the virile half-brothers and their colourful land behind and return to constraints of her life in England?

When Cecily Harrowsmith, a secret agent for the Queen, is sent on a mission to investigate Rajasthan and how they are managing without the Empire, things get a bit dicey.

Cecily is a go getter type of personality and she takes her duty as a spy very seriously. Rajasthan should have crumbled after the the Empire withdrew its backing and she has been sent to see just how well they are getting on. When her carriage is waylaid early into the mission, things go decidedly awry and Cecily finds herself naked and seduced by a bandit as her coach is taken from underneath her. Angry, but very aroused by this feisty blackguard, she falls under his spell and is striped, tied up, caged and has wild and unparalleled sex like she has never known, but has always dreamed of. Will Cecily complete her mission, or will the beguiling eyes of Pratan, the king’s brother bewitch her into forgetting why she journeyed to the fall off land to begin with?

At first the story rolls out like a very spicy abduction story, with some very graphic and delicious sex scenes that quite frankly curled my toes. Lisabet Sarai never fails to delight with her tales. In this one, we have the exotic culture of an Arabian Nights kind of set up, complete with a jealous sex slave and a king that will leave no stone unturned to explore all the carnal delights he can conceive of. Pratan, the king’s brother, is a hunky yet conflicted hero. He was cursed at birth by a witch to become a rutting beast and that is exactly what he is when the moon casts its wicked spell. Cecily’s arrival has put Pratan’s change into overdrive and it becomes dangerous for everyone around them. Cecily must use all of her skills as a spy to find out the secrets of this exotic land and stop a curse before it destroys everything she begins to hold dear.

This book really took me far and wide. At first you have a kidnapping fantasy with rip roaring sex that honestly left me breathless. Then you have a ménage with kinky toys that made me crunch ice. ( A lot). Then you add a paranormal twist and I couldn’t decide what I enjoyed more. It all worked. Every part of it. The hero was alpha male all the way, but had a soft side too and that made me fall for him too. The heroine was brave and adventurous and embraced every experience that came her way. I loved that. The action was amazing and the sex scenes sizzled through my e-reader. The other thing about this book was the steampunk elements that added spice to an already fun plot. Gadgets that tie you up by oral command, collars that kill and more await in this fast paced and stimulating read.

If you want a scorching summer read that will take you back into the past for a spy story that is like no other you are likely to come across, then you have to give this one a try.
