My Thoughts 

Irresistible was engaging and fun. I enjoyed the progression of Jess and Dougal’s story from a professional relationship to a wonderful one. Both are strong, likeable characters, their rapport and flow together worked really well here. While the story is mostly centered on the main characters and their mission, the secondary characters in this novel are just as well written and it all makes for enjoyable reading. 

One nice aspect is that you don’t need to have read the series to enjoy this on its own; it’s successful as a stand-alone, but considering I’ve appreciated and looked forward to the entire series thus far, and continue to do so, I really do suggest reading the entire series.

Society’s most exclusive invitation...

Welcome to the Phoenix Club, where London’s most audacious, disreputable, and intriguing ladies and gentlemen find scandal, redemption, and second chances.

Jessamine Goodfellow has spent six Seasons avoiding the parson’s trap, and spinsterhood is finally within her grasp. A brilliant scholar, she longs for adventure and new experiences, things her family frowns upon. Presented with the opportunity to use her puzzle-solving talent on a secret mission for the Foreign Office, Jess eagerly accepts. Even when it means posing as the wife of a scorchingly attractive Scotsman who she must also covertly investigate as a possible double agent.

Lord Dougal MacNair, the new Viscount Fallin, has always completed his assignments for the Foreign Office alone. Now he’s saddled with an overly enthusiastic 
amateur partner. She possesses a remarkable intellect, but something about her isn’t quite right, and after two failed missions, Dougal is certain someone is working against him. Battling their secret suspicions, Dougal and Jess dive deep into their cover as a married couple, which arouses temptations they find irresistible. Danger is all around them, but it’s their hearts that may be the most imperiled.
