Friends and Foes

Friends and Foes, the first book in Sarah Eden's Jonquil brothers series, introduces you to the eldest brother of the family, Philip Jonquil, the Earl of Lampton.  Philip's work (investigating crimes as an agent for the Foreign Office) leads him and a fellow agent to a small, out of the way inn.  As they are discussing their plans to locate a French spy, named Le Fontaine, their private discussion is suddenly interrupted by a beautiful, young English woman, looking for her walking stick!

This young woman's name is Sorrel Kendrick and when Sorrel and Philip end up at the same party in the country at the home of Philip's best friend, you know fireworks are bound to happen!  After their previous meeting, Sorrel and Philip have declared war with each other.  As you watch them interact with friends and family during this party, you also see sparks forming between Philip and Sorrel!

Philip is still looking for Le Fontaine and when he learns that he is in the area, he knows he must go out on the hunt.  Big trouble arises when Sorrel gets involved with the hunt, as well!
