Dangerous Passions by Kat Martin

SHE'S COURTING DANGER...
When Elissa Tauber learns of her beloved brother's murder and that her native homeland is threatened, she is determined to expose the traitor. Posing as a recently widowed countess, she moves through the glittering world of the court, willing to barter even her lovely body if she must.

CAN SHE FIGHT DESIRE?
More than one man poses a threat, but it is the tall, imposing Lord Wolvermont, Colonel Adrian Kingsland, who endangers her heart. Even as she suspects he might be the spy called the Falcon, she longs for his touch. When fate takes a hand, Elissa must decide whether to betray her mission-or lose the man she loves.

About the Author:

Currently living in Missoula, Montana, Kat Martin is the bestselling author of over sixty historical and romantic suspense novels. More than fifteen million of her books are in print and she has been published in twenty foreign countries, including Japan, France, Greece, Argentina, China, and Spain. Before she started writing, Kat was a real estate broker. During that time, she met her husband, L. J. Martin, also an author. Kat is a graduate of the University of California at Santa Barbara, where she majored in anthropology and also studied history. "I love anything old," Kat says. "I love to travel and especially like to visit the places where my books are set. My husband and I often stay in out-of-the-way inns and houses built in times past. It's fun and it gives a wonderful sense of a by-gone era."

From Publishers Weekly:

Martin's latest historical has a relatively fresh setting?the Austria of Francis II (I). Sadly everything else seems very, very old. The dialogue is rife with "twas", "twould" and "little minx"; shafts are rigid, lobes are nibbled, emotions surge and tears spill. In 1809, Elissa Tauber arrives in Austria from her home in Cornwall posing as the second wife of the late Count von Langen (her dead father), in order to find a traitor hinted at in a letter from her murdered brother. It's hard to imagine Elissa as a Napoleonic Emma Peel given that Colonel Adrian Kingsland, Baron Wolvermont, has to rescue her from a boar, a fall, a villain (part I), a Turk, a villain (part II). In fact, she's the kind of first-class twit that only a sexual predator like Adrian could love. ("I'll keep your secret if you promise you will come to me?whenever, wherever I wish. Not ten minutes later, not later that night, but the moment I send you a summons.") Basically, this is mawkish, distasteful and outdated.
