After five years of tracking and capturing spies on English soil, Philip Jonquil, Earl of Lampton, is in pursuit of his last quarry. But at a traveler's inn, he encounters an unexpected and far more maddening foe: Sorrel Kendrick, a young lady who is strikingly pretty, shockingly outspoken, and entirely unimpressed with him. Indeed, Sorrel cannot believe the nerve of this gentleman, who rudely accuses her of theft and insults her feminine dignity. Doubly annoyed when they both end up at a party hosted by mutual friends, Philip and Sorrel privately declare war on one another. But Philip's tactics, which range from flirting to indifference, soon backfire as he finds himself reluctantly enjoying Sorrel's company; and, much to her dismay, Sorrel finds Philip's odd manner to be increasingly endearing. In the midst of this waning war and growing attraction, Philip catches wind of the French spy he's been tracking, and Sorrel inadvertently stumbles upon a crucial piece of the puzzle, making her indispensable to the mission. But can two proud hearts negotiate a ceasefire when cooperation matters most?
N: Prepare the Couch! I was hooked with this book from the very beginning. Sarah M. Eden uses great description it was like I was there in the midst of the war between Philip and Sorrel as they went from bitter enemies to friends. Great romance, comedy and adventure tied into one heart capturing story. I couldn't put Friends and Foes down until the last page, not even dinner could make me set it aside. I have fallen in love with ALL of Sarah M Eden's books and one day want to meet her. She is truly an amazing author who intertwines her books so well. Don't take my word for it, go read one! :)
M: Another great Regency Romance from Sarah Eden! Sorrel's fire and wit match Philip's own for a comedic adventures of two hearts at war. It was reminiscent of the well-loved classic, the Scarlet Pimpernel where things may not be as they first appear. When a war of worlds turns into mutual attraction the real trouble for Sorrel and Philip begins. They must learn to work together and trust each other before a deadly spy brings harm to those they love most. If you liked Pride and Prejudice, you will love this heartfelt, humorous tale of wrong first impressions and misinterpretations.
