Eloquence and Espionage was such a wonderful romp through Regency England. The continuation of the Lady Emily Capers, this story was just so fun. I really enjoyed trying to figure out who the villain was! The author did a good job of keeping me guessing right to the end.
I really liked the two main characters and the situation they ended up in together. Ariadne was her usual intelligent self, yet the reader was allowed to see into her thoughts in this story and that was truly enchanting. Jason Sinclair was a great hero. He was brave and smart, yet had a lot of self-doubt and things from the past that haunted him.
I’m really looking forward to reading the next book in the series and seeing how all the various stories from the previous books continue to come together. This is a sweet and clean romance.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Sometimes life really is romantic. Bluestocking Ariadne Courdebas never thought she’d play the heroine in her own romantic novel until a chance encounter with handsome intelligence agent Jason Sinclair pulled her into the world of espionage. Now with the help of her sister Daphne and friends Priscilla Tate and Lady Emily Southwell, she’s chasing French spies across 1815 London and uncovering treasonous plots that could the shape the outcome of the war with Napoleon, all while pretending to be engaged to Sinclair. It would be perfectly thrilling if she could just manage to secure vouchers for that exclusive club Almack’s like all the other debutantes! As secrets and scandals collide, she finds herself wishing for more than just pretend. Can Ariadne use her considerable eloquence to convince Sinclair to play her hero, forever? This clean romantic mystery set in the Regency period features kisses only.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first Regency romance novel until she had learned a bit more about writing such as vocabulary, sentence structure, and plot. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, she got serious about her novel writing. The Regency romance The Unflappable Miss Fairchild was her first novel to be published (March 1998). In 2011, she was delighted to move into Christian romance with the publication of The Irresistible Earl.
Besides her novels, Regina Scott has had published three Regency romance novellas (“The June Bride Conspiracy” in His Blushing Bride, “Sweeter Than Candy” in A Match for Mother, and “A Place by the Fire” in Mistletoe Kittens), which are now featured in electronic book form as Be My Bride. Her novels have been translated into Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese; and Lord Borin’s Secret Love and The Rake’s Redemption have been issued in hardcover, large print editions. Many of her works are also available as electronic books through Belgrave House’s Regency Reads line or as self-published works, such as Perfection.
Regina Scott and her husband are the parents of two sons. They reside in the Puget Sound area of Washington State and are members of the Church of the Nazarene. Born and raised in the Seattle area, Regina Scott is a graduate of the University of Washington. She comes by her writing talent naturally–both her parents were excellent writers in their vocations as teacher and electrical technician, now retired. Her mother envisioned the plot for “Sweeter Than Candy,” the novella which was written as a tribute to her.
Regina Scott is a devout Christian and a decent fencer; owns a historical, fantasy, and science fiction costume collection that currently takes up over a third of her large closet; and has been known to impersonate an independent consultant specializing in risk communication.
