I LOVED this book. As with [b:Spymaster's Lady|959745|The Spymaster's Lady|Joanna Bourne|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51AMlDtqr7L._SL75_.jpg|944648], the hero was a little more alpha than I usually prefer, but also as with Spymaster's Lady
I adored the heroine so much it didn't matter. Jess is tough and smart and funny, and she gets to use her talents to do important plot things. I loved her backstory, all of it, and the ways it made her the person she is. And the two of them were adorable together. The bit where they're in bed together and he's showing her how to tie sailors' knots in her hair was amazingly sweet and sexy.
