About the Book:
British business mogul Rikkard Ambrose has departed London to face his arch-rival in a deadly game of espionage and intrigue at the Royal Court of France, leaving his lady love behind to knit socks and twiddle her thumbs.
Left behind alone? That is not something Lilly Linton is willing to put up with! Determined to show her boss who’s boss, she embarks on her most dangerous adventure yet, armed with the most powerful weapon of all: love—and, just in case, her trusted revolver.
The 5th volume of Robert Thier’s award-winning Storm and Silence series.
Lilly Linton and Rickard Ambrose have been a part of my world for a few years now, and they are the definition of an extreme slow burn. Hunting for Silence is the fifth book, and only recently have they even started admitting their love for each other.
Sometimes it’s frustrating.
Sometimes I flipping love it.
However, what I really love most is how there’s been a shift in dynamics between these two characters. Mr. Ambrose now trusts Lilly. He listens to her opinions, and even follows her advice. So, yeah, I know that’s something anyone should expect in a relationship, but you have to understand, Mr. Ambrose has been through some stuff. He doesn’t easily give up control. The belief he has in Lillian, especially evident in Hunting for Silence, was a long time coming and oh so worth it.
They are truly partners.
I did rate this installment one star less than usual. I think the reason for was more in what happened in the first half of the book. Sometimes the scenes can get a little too wacky for me. There’s a little too many random moments that didn’t do anything to forward plot. However, with that said, I did feel like there was a seriousness to this installment that was missing in previous books. Mr. Ambrose made his intentions and feelings very known, and he was romantic in a way that was absolute Rickard Ambrose.
Some may hate it. I love everything about him.
I know I’m in for at least one more book. Beyond book six, I’m not sure how much longer Sir Robert Thier can keep these two going. I’m a firm believer that everything should have an end.
Lilly and Ambrose are no exception.
