What an absolutely wonderful novel! I loved The Lost Lieutenant, book one in this series, and I wholeheartedly love The Gentleman Spy, as well. The author has managed to capture that elusive quality between her characters that makes the reader realize that these two people, without a doubt, belong together, heart and soul.
I liked the way Charlotte and Marcus’ marriage came about, as well as the way they genuinely found common ground during the short courtship. The, my heart tugged as Charlotte tried to determine why her husband kept their marriage so compartmentalized, being passionate when they were alone at night, but disappearing and being distant during the day.
Charlotte and Marcus were both such interesting characters, I couldn’t help loving them both and hoping that they could find true love together, while also using their talents and interests to help the causes they cared about. This story really captured my attention, making me want to reread book one and also eager for book three in the series to be released! What an absolute joy The Gentleman Spy was to read!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
He only wanted a duchess for a day–but she’s determined to make it a marriage for life
When his father and older brother suddenly pass away, the new Duke of Haverly is saddled with a title he never expected to bear. To thwart the plans of his scheming family, the duke impulsively marries a wallflower. After all, she’s meek and mild; it should be easy to sequester her in the country and get on with his life–as a secret agent for the Crown.
But his bride has other ideas. She’s determined to take her place not only as his duchess but as his wife. As a duchess, she can use her position to help the lowest of society–the women forced into prostitution because they have no skills or hope. Her endeavors are not met favorably in society, nor by her husband who wishes she’d remain in the background as he ordered.
Can the duke succeed in relegating her to the sidelines of his life? When his secrets are threatened with exposure, will his new wife be an asset or a liability?
