When a spymaster proposes marriage as a cover, it might be madness for a lady to indulge in...


Bestselling author Jane Feather beguiles with this sparkling story of the alluring secrets hidden behind the elegance of Regency London, when a lovely young woman discovers the danger...and delight...of risking everything for love.

Aurelia Farnham believes she is happy living in London's stylish Cavendish Square. But with her friends Livia and Cornelia both married now, Aurelia is the only one still husbandless, and sometimes she longs for more. Then Colonel Sir Greville Falconer storms into her life, delivering a letter from her late husband, a war hero, which reveals he was a spy -- the colonel's spy. Now Greville needs Aurelia to continue the patriotic mission and partner him as he exposes a ring of Spanish spies who have infiltrated London society.

The attentions of the charismatic Greville excite Aurelia as his mock courtship blurs the line between pretense and reality. When the simmering attraction between them ignites into passion and the danger of Aurelia's double life escalates, Greville insists on marriage as the best way to protect her. Now Aurelia realizes she has more than shadowy antagonists to fear, for she's lost her heart to a dashing spymaster who will one day slip away as suddenly as he appeared....

23/12 - Not sure this is any better than the previous book in the series (which I was hoping it would be). Aurelia Farnham just seems like a means to an end for Sir Greville Falconer. He has physical passion for her but I don't feel any true understanding of her or her situation. I mean, leading a single mother with a young child into the dangers of espionage shows me he has no understanding of what her life is like and the fact that it's not just his life and hers that are effected by what he's asking her to do. He should be thinking of what will happen to Franny if she is killed or seriously injured, how her life will turn out without either parent from a very young age. Are there no other unattached young ladies in London who could be just as good a spy as Aurelia is turning out to be? So another hero I don't like in this series. The first book featuring Harry and Cornelia is the best by far. To be continued...

25/12 - I was kind of disappointed with this series as a whole, I have read a number of Feather's other books and these three didn't compare very favourably. The second and third heroes seemed to lack a lot of true feeling for their heroine and this sucked all the romance out of their books. There was nothing here to get your heart racing or make me want to read them more than once (thank goodness I didn't buy any of them). This was a quick, easy summer read, but it wasn't as enjoyable as I wanted out of my normal summer romances.
