A beautiful and eligible member of the ton, Jane has more than a few secrets: she’s one of the Crown’s most elite agents. She may be deadly, but she doesn’t know a thing about fashion, flirtation, or love . . . until Dominic Griffyn shakes up her carefully stirred world and asks her to be his bride. He’s exactly the kind of man she’s not looking for. And he’s dangerous, because falling into his arms is so much more satisfying than saving England from her enemies.
He’s an improper gentleman who needs a wife. . .
Tall, dark, and tortured, Dominic Griffyn is haunted by demons from his past. When his stepfather insists that he marry, Dominic allows himself to hope that the beautiful but mysterious Miss Bonde might help him forget his troubles. As they grow closer, it’s clear that there’s more to Jane than danger. She might be just what his neglected heart needs
REVIEW: It is 1816 and Miss Jane Bonde, a beautiful, slender young woman with blonde hair and blue eyes is happy with her life and has no desire to get married. Why, you ask?
Because Jane is a spy and a darn good one at that! Jane lives with her uncle and guardian who has taught her the spy craft. Now, he is informing her that it is time she gets married. Balking at his request, Jane wants to continue with her work to catch a very elusive French spy.
At age 32, Dominic Griffyn, stepson of Lord Edgeberry, Marquess of Edgeberry, has also been informed that it is past time that he marries and the families are pairing him up with Jane Bonde.
Both Jane and Dominic aren’t really keen on this marriage decision but have no choice. When Dominic discovers Jane’s secret career, he inadvertently ends up joining her on some missions. Jane does not want Dominic with her because she works better alone. Their escapades are dangerous and scary, but also humorous at times.
The novel is loosely based on James Bond’s “Live and Let Die” which adds some tongue-in-cheek humor to the story that will have the reader laughing. But there are some poignant scenes that will touch your heart as well.
This is the third novel of Ms. Galen’s spy series. The first two novels are “Lord and Lady Spy” and “True Spies.” Shana Galen has an amazing talent for writing spy novels which has resulted in a huge following.
