SECRETS VOLUME 26 BOUND BY PASSION
Satisfy Your Desires for More
The Spy’s Surrender - Juliet Burns
“The Spy’s Surrender” is my favorite story in this anthology. Major Lord Ambrose Delacort was captive of Napoleon and tortured. Madame Eva Mystere was a British spy. Her assignment, rescue Delacort. She would do whatever it took to save his life. The passion and emotion in “The Spy’s Surrender” is sure to win fans.
Volume 26, Secrets is an anthology of four short romantica tales. The connecting thread is the secrets. Each story is well-written. As I stated above, my favorite is Juliet Burns’ “The Spy’s Surrender.” Fans of romantica will enjoy Volume 26, Secrets.

COCKTAIL REVIEWS - FOUR AND A HALF FLUTES!
The final novella in the anthology, The Spy’s Surrender by Juliet Burns, is a historical set during the Napoleonic War. Major Ambrose Delacourt, a spy for the British, has been captured by the French. His imprisonment is brutal, but he refuses to give his captors information – and so he’s delivered to Eva, a courtesan known as Madame Mystère, to be her love-slave and to entertain the guests of Madame’s protector, the odious Marquis de Séréville.
Eva knows she’s playing a dangerous game. She must save the handsome major, but to do so she must risk exposing her true identity – and perhaps losing her own life…
This is an enjoyable, exciting and action-packed historical romp with two sympathetic characters. I really liked Ambrose – he’s sexy and honourable – and Eva is sharp-witted and courageous. The first sex scene has Eva as a dominatrix, which was both a pleasant surprise and also a great way of establishing their characters. The dirty versions of Shakespeare plays are an inspired touch, too. A great read – 4 and a half flutes.
Another strong collection from Red Sage, with something for everyone. Stories range from hot contemporaries to an erotic historical via a sexy fantasy. My personal favourite was Kate St James’ story, and for me Rachel Carrington’s story was the weakest, although it was a lot of fun. The novellas by Calista Fox and Juliet Burns were both sexy and enjoyable. Overall, an excellent anthology that I’d recommend to any readers of the erotic romance genre. Final score: 4 and a half flutes.
