This story came across to me as being so jumbled I had to read sentences over and over to make out what the author was trying to convey.

FYI -- there are several steamy sex scenes. if the reader is put off by that this is your heads up.

The heroine is trying to find out who killed her godfather and why he was killed. She meets the hero while she is dressed as a man. He has been a spy for the Queen but now it seems someone is trying to make it look as though he is not be trusted and his life is in danger. The man he wants to question is dead and the heroine is the person he saw leave the room.

Most of the story is her getting into trouble and his rescuing her -- then keeping her at his house. This nicely and conveniently sets up the seduction scenes.

The heroine has a secret regarding her past, but the hero has his as well.

I didn't care that much for either of the main characters, and the story didn't catch my imagination.

Historical romance with a detective trying to solve a mystery by order of Queen Elizabeth. There are many twists and turns over the course of the novel and you just might be surprised by who is revealed to be the culprit at the end of the story.

The first half of this book drove me crazy with the banter back and forth between the main characters. It mellowed out part way through the book and the rest of it seemed so much easier to read. Predictable but charming.

This, the 2nd book of the 4 part series, kept me reading well into the night. I just wish there were more books in this enjoyable series. Recommended.

The Skinny
Crispin Foscari has never had to work harder than he does when an anonymous informant to the Queen makes mention of treason and leads him to fighting for his top position as a top spy and to avoid execution. His investigation leads him smack into Sophie Champion. She is in search of her godfather’s murderer and the person with whom he was to meet. Unfortunately for Sophie, she is caught at the scene of another crime, and Crispin is convinced she is the murderer, or at least the key to solving his own investigation. Sophie’s true identity and relationship to her godfather is questioned and things don’t look very good for Sophie or Crispin.

The Players
Cripsin – top agent in the Queen’s employ; known as the Earl of Scandal
Sophie – a bright woman with a secret past; she uses her influence for good
Lawerence – Crispin’s longtime friend; very wealthy and powerful
Elwood – Crispin’s butler; responsible for gathering information
The Aunts – a bunch of busybodies who insist on Crispin’s marriage

My Thoughts
Sophie Champion is adorable. She has one of the most interesting backgrounds, and her wits are what has gotten her so far in life. She has amassed a great deal of her own wealth and has a bit of influence with how she makes her dealings. She is a very independent woman, but also vulnerable inside.

Crispin Foscari is known as the “Earl of Scandal.” He dedicated much of his life to the Queen and has operated as one of her top agents for years. Even his own friend and partner-in-crime Lawrence Pickering is unbeknownst to Crispin’s role in the British government.

After one very serious meeting with the Queen, Crispin has been branded a traitor with no means of recourse but his own, perhaps at the cost of his life. His good-standing in the Queen’s eyes are very important to Crispin and lead him directly to the same person Sophia is hunting down.

After their run-in in the red room, Sophia is no longer the independent woman she once was. She is under the strain of her godfather’s death and wanting answers. She makes a bet with Crispin about the murder, and the plot takes off as the two of them travel in their own directions to solve the murder.

I thought Lawrence was quite an interesting character, and it seems he makes another appearance in the Arboretti series. Being friends for so long, he knows just how to get to Crispin, as does the rest of the Arboretti family.

Crispin avoids the aunts like the plague. Although he humors them quite a bit, there are certain times where he simply draws the line and cuts them off. Like when he is presented with over 100 potentials to choose one bride from.

Despite Crispin’s far-reaching clutches and resources, Sophia is not a woman to back down. Even when things seem daunting and get very personal, Sophia stands strong and firm in her convictions to find her godfather’s murderer.

I enjoyed the second installment in the Arboretti Family series, but I will say it seemed more…erotic than the first, The Stargazer. If I didn’t eat peaches before, I couldn’t now.

During the Elizabethan Age, Crispin Foscari and Sophie Champion first meet over a dead body. Crispin is there as an agent of the Queen and Sophie is there because she thinks the dead man is a link to the death of her beloved foster father. Although Sophie is dressed as a man (which allows her to move about the City freely). Crispin immediately sees through her disguise. He is beguiled even though he has been a lover to many, many women. The paths of Sophie and Crispin cross again and again and each time the sexual tension increases. The love scenes in this book are extraordinary and you will probably never look at peach (yes, the fruit) in the same way again. Through many twists, turns and often comedic encounters, Sophie and Crispin each come to the same conclusion which solves the mystery of more than one murder. Crispin plays a number of roles and it is a guess which one he is playing at any given time. I suspect that the author will continue this series with at least one book about the cousins who are introduced late in "The Water Nymph". It is not necessary to read the prequel to " The Water Nymph", which is "The Stargazer", in order to enjoy "The Water Nymph"
