On the Brink of Another Thrilling and Passionate Adventure!

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Author

Note: This novelette bridges the first book in this series – Denial of Conscience, with its sequel – Without a Conscience, and Denial of Conscience should be read prior to Guilty Conscience and Without a Conscience.

For those who haven’t read Denial of Conscience, it is an exhilarating and emotionally-charged Austenesque spy-thriller that tells the story of Fitzwilliam “Iceman” Darcy, who works as a government-sanctioned assassin, and Liz Bennet, a dutiful daughter who finds herself wrapped up in international intrigue. If you want to learn more about Denial of Conscience, check out my review!

In these six chapters, or vignettes, readers pay a visit to Pemberley to see how our favorite assassin and his “hell on wheels” wife are enjoying life retired in the peaceful sanctuary of Pemberley. But is everything as idyllic and blissful as it seems? Does the domestic and quiet lifestyle fully satisfy Darcy and Liz? Or do they want more? As you might guess, Darcy and Liz still have a lot to learn about being a couple, sharing their lives, and communicating… 😉

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, I adore this modern-day reincarnation of Darcy and Elizabeth. I love the all-consuming and combustable love they have for each other!  But what I love most is how their love healed past wounds, opened hearts, and brought each such happiness. It truly is amazing to witness.

And what about Obsidian? After Operation Virginia Reel, what are Caroline, Rick, Charlie, and Knightley up to? Well, you will have to read this enticing teaser to find out! By the way, I should warn you that while these delectable little morsels are satisfying, they will leave you starving for more! So make sure you have a copy of Without a Conscience at the ready!  Trust me.

Warning: Recommended for Mature Audiences due to intimate scenes and language

    Loved this collection of short stories so much. Cat’s work is always worth reading, isn’t it? I must bump Without A Conscience up my TBR list!


      Definitely! I love the characters she creates, they always feel so real. You will love Without a Conscience, Anji!


    I do so love this series. In fact I have just finished re-reading Without a Conscience (bliss!) I am now desperately awaiting In Good Conscience. You’re right Meredith- Guilty Conscience finished with a cliff hanger leaving me desperate to read more. I love Iceman and his Liz and hope they eventually get their peaceful happy ever after.


      Me too, Glynis! Just a perfect blend of everything – romance, danger, action, adventure! So glad you love this series as much as I do!


    Glad to see you are enjoying these. I’ve loved all of Cat’s books that I’ve read so far.


    Looking forward to reading these in the near future! I loved ‘DOC’!


    I just love Cat’s stories. I read this as soon as it was available and loved it. I will be one I re-read.


    I agree! This was great, but it definitely left me wanting more. 🙂
