'A Raven's Heart' by K.C. Bateman is book two in the "Secrets and Spies" series. I have read the previous book but this book is a standalone book for sure.
This is the story of Heloise Hampden and William de l’Isle, Viscount Ravenwood.
Ravenwood is a spy along with Heloise's brothers. Ravenwood and Heloise's brothers are like family but there has always been something between Heloise and him. But when Ravenwood was about 18 years he turned down Heloise feelings when she tried to move forward with her feelings. This started them no longer being real friends. Then life got in there way... Heloise had a physical change that made her more bookish then before..having her staying to herself more. Ravenwood also went through something that he felt changed him and his trust of people. So a few years later in the present day of the book we find that Ravenwood is being asked to guard Heloise since her life is endangered because of her decoding work she does to help her brothers and fellow spies. This along with something else throws Ravenwood and Heloise into adventure that forces them to acknowledge there attraction/feelings.
I really enjoyed this book and the previous one "To Steal a Heart". The only thing is these books once you start reading them you do not want to put it down. I just can't wait for the next new book to come out by Ms. Bateman!!
I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
