Itís 1929 and all good girls are virgins until the day they marry. Sex is a mystery, whose details are only revealed in full on your wedding night. Well, Lady Gillian Christie wanted to know what all the hoopla was about. When she received an assignment from the newspaper she wrote for to attend a weekend house party, she saw it as her golden chance to get rid of her "annoying virginity" once and for all. Plus it would be her chance to write an exclusive expose on The Game and earn her own by-line.

What she doesnít bargain for is the appearance of her older brotherís friend, Johnny Westmoreland. What she doesnít need is for her mother or her brother to find out what she was up to. But she soon realizes that she is in way over her head and Johnny might be her only chance to salvage her reputation and at the same time, satisfy her curiosity and quench her desires.

Set in the early years of the rise of fascism, Secret Services is a tale of intrigue and sexual discovery. I was surprised and enjoyed very much Ms. Dawsonís first effort. It is an unusual time period to set a story, yet she does a wonderful job of giving you a peek into the days and the lives of the men and women of this time period. Gillian is smart, resourceful and very adventurous. Johnny is dashing, sexy and just a little mysterious. The sex is hot and inventive and the dialogue flows smoothly. This couple is honest and straightforward in their desire for each other and their determination to get the job done.
