A Reckless Soul by Elizabeth Cole

A Reckless Soul

Historical Romance / Romantic Suspense


Synopsis:
A seductive agent, a disillusioned lord, and a web of deceit only they can untangle…
Sophie Bertrand is skilled in acting, espionage, and the subtle art of seduction. An independent spirit, she fought her way from rough streets to the top secret circle of spies known as the Zodiac. Her newest assignment is one of her most delicate yet: hunt down a traitor within Britain’s own government. But there’s a catch…this time she can't work alone.
Bruce Allander has a title, honor, wealth...but he’d trade it all to restore his family. The Zodiac gives him a chance for justice in a world that's already taken too much from him. Now he finds himself close to this captivating Frenchwoman—possibly too close. Sophie defies all his expectations, yet in her he senses a kindred soul.
Passion draws the two together, but a web of betrayals threatens to tear them apart. To survive, they have to trust each other. They have to be a little reckless…
A Reckless Soul is the second book in the Secrets of the Zodiac, a series that blends romantic suspense with the rich background of the Regency period.
My Review
Five Stars
Received the book from the Author in exchange for an honest review.
Sophie Bertrand was awesome!!! What a great character!!!!  I absolutely loved and admired her! This was such a fun read! It was so enjoyable and I could not put it down! Sophie was a street kid. She grew up taking care of herself and is now a part of a group of spies called Zodiac. Bruce Allander is a part of high society but what he really wants is justice.  Although him and Sophie couldn't be any more different they are also the two that understand each other best. 
I loved Sophie and Bruce as a couple. They each pushed each other out of their comfort zones.  Sophie is use to working alone and taking care of herself. She is not pleased to have to work with Bruce.  Bruce is also use to working alone and has certain ideas about how things should be including Sophie.  She obviously defies Bruce's notions of  what her role should be. 
Aside from the great connection that they shared is the mystery surrounding the traitor.  I loved how the author balanced this mystery.  I really enjoyed this book and plan to read more by this author!
