About the book:
All of England thinks Phillip Camden a monster—a man who deliberately caused the deaths of his squadron. But as nurse Arabelle Denler watches the so-dubbed “Black Heart” every day, she sees something far different: a hurting man desperate for mercy. And when their paths twist together and he declares himself her new protector, she realizes she has her own role to play in his healing.
Phillip Camden would have preferred to die that day with his squadron rather than be recruited to the Admiralty’s codebreaking division. The threats he receives daily are no great surprise and, in his opinion, well deserved. What comes as a shock is the reborn desire to truly live that Arabelle inspires in him.
But when an old acquaintance shows up and seems set on using him in a plot that has the codebreakers of Room 40 in a frenzy, new affections are put to the test.
This is an incredible historical romance!
The main characters, Arabelle Denler and Phillip Camden, are very well developed. In some ways they are similar, but their differences are much more apparent. It was a lot of fun to see how they interacted with each other from the first time they met. I liked seeing how their relationship changed throughout the book.
On the other side we have Diellza, or Dee, Mettler and Alwin Weber. This couple gives us a great look at what people are capable of doing for someone they love.
The development of the story and the work done by the codebreakers and the intelligence department was fabulous. I was very intrigued by all of it.
I’m really looking forward to what comes up for the Codebreakers in the next book.
I have decided to give this marvelous book a rating of 5 stars. I’m highly recommending it.
