book blurb

Revenge won’t change anything—or will it?

From USA Today bestselling author Jillian Dodd comes the second book in a sizzling series filled with action and adventure. Fans of The Selection and The Hunger Games will discover a heart-pounding thrill ride of espionage and suspense set in glittering high society.

The world’s most deadly assassin, a man known only as The Priest, has come back from the dead to take a series of high profile hits. When the assassin completes his first task—shooting an important world leader, the global community goes into collective shock and his government vows retaliation.

With her cover firmly cemented as Huntley Von Allister, Spy Girl’s vacation on the Royal Yacht is cut short when she’s called home for her next mission—and, this time, it’s personal.

Can Huntley accomplish her mission before the next hit takes place?

And what will happen when she finally comes face-to-face with the man who killed her mother?


excerpt

“No, Huntley, I did not.” He sighs. “Even though I was upset to learn the truth about you, I’m certainly not over you. And I could never offer you up to another man.”

A quick glance over the railing confirms that Daniel is still training in the pool a deck below. Knowing I won’t be overheard, I say, “I’m sorry, Lorenzo. If I weren’t who I am, if I didn’t have to do this—”

“Things would be different,” he says, finishing my sentence. “I know. I’m a King and you’re—you. It would never work.”

“Right.”

“But what if it could?” he asks.

“The only way it could is if one of us were willing to quit.”

“I can’t quit my country.”

“So you want me to quit?”

“I’m not sure. I have so many unanswered questions.”

“What were you told about me?”

“Very little. The man who called simply stated that your training and cover had taken years to put into place. He then requested I not tell a soul, for your personal safety.”

“Lorenzo, it’s one thing to know what I do. It’s another thing to have witnessed it.”

“While I will admit your talents are slightly unusual, it doesn’t make them any less spectacular.”

“You saw me kill people. I’m good at it.”

“And thank goodness that you are, or I’d be dead.”

“And I’m a liar.”

“I watched you work the crowd to perfection at both the Queen’s Garden Party and Her Majesty’s Royal Ball. Where I come from, we call that being diplomatic.”

I laugh out loud. “You almost make me feel like a normal girl.”

“Will you tell me how you ended up in this profession at such a young age?”

“Can I be honest with you?”

“Of course.”

“I’m not doing this for my country.”

“Good, then it will be easier to convince you to live in mine.”

my review5 Stars

After reading the first book, The Prince, I was incredibly happy and looking forward to getting more adventures with this crew because I adored Huntley and the other various characters in this series.

But now… after The Eagle, I am completely and utterly addicted – the continuation of Huntley’s story absolutely blew me away.  Seriously.  Right from the start, this book’s plot kicked into high gear and it was a thousand times more intense and captivating.  Between all of the spy chaos and boy drama for Huntley I could not put this book down.

I honestly cannot begin to try and give specific details about this book.  (I’m too terrified that I might accidentally give away a spoiler or secret.)  Huntley lives in a complex world were it is difficult to trust anyone.  She wants revenge and is willing to put just about everything aside to achieve her goal.  It usually puts her right in the middle of political discord and destruction.

But all of the murder, mayhem, double crossing and romance in The Eagle left me on the edge of my seat and desperate for more.  However, it left me with so many unanswered questions. I am hella curious to know what’s going on with Black X and the deal Huntley’s family.   PLUS!!!  I need to know who Huntley will end up with – Lorenzo, The Prince of Montrovia or Daniel, the Vice President’s son.

I love everything about the Spy Girl series from Jillian Dodd.  The sharp, witty banter.  The sweet, swoon, worthy moments of romance.  The danger and excitement from the political drama.  It’s all carefully balanced into one an amazing story that is a must read.

Both books in this series are top recommendations from me.  Get them now.
