Captain Jonathan Thomsin was the only Captain of Earth’s combined forces to successfully destroy Daranii ships, not by confronting them, but with guerilla warfare. Outraged by Thomsin’s dishonorable tactics, the Daranii demand the captain as part of Earth’s reparations to Daran. Captain Thomsin was given to Daran to protect Earth from Daranii vengeance.
He expected to be tormented by loss and grief.
He expected to be tortured and die on Daran.
He never expected to fall in love.
Isobel is the arsonist who runs into Nate’s alchemist shop. She’s hiding from the gang that owns her. Isobel wants freedom but after meeting Nate, she wants him. How could they possible have a happy ending when danger lurks around every corner?
This is the third book in the whitfield files series. I absolutely LOVED the previous books. I mean, five star, must read, recommend them all the time, kind of love. Of Alchemist and Arsonists is another great addition.
Belle is Isobel’s nickname. The blurb confused me a bit with the mention of Belle. I was a little unsure at why Nate is helping her. I understand hiding her at first but then to go search her out again with all the trouble she brings... He doesn’t know her so is it just because she’s beautiful? That said, they did have great chemistry. I really like Isobel. She is put in a terrible situation and she’s just trying to make the best of it. She’s a survivor and she doesn’t expect to suddenly care about something else like Nate. I also really like Nate. He’s generally a good guy who is trying to do the right thing but he’s in a situation he’s not sure how to handle. The romance is a slow, sizzling heat that is almost poetic. The details of old London are beautiful and that ending is so satisfying!
