A passionate Regency romance from award-winning author of The Lady Flees Her Lord, Ann Lethbridge!

Independent and sharp-minded, Miss Maria Dalbrooke has all but given up on finding a suitable man, as she knows women of her ilk have never fared well in the marriage mart of the ton. But all thoughts of men flee when she learns that her father, who decodes secret messages for the military, is suspected of being a traitor and leaking sensitive information to the enemy. In her haste to prove him innocent, she's forced into a most unlikely alliance with the very man sent to ensnare him, the perceptive and strikingly handsome Captain Geoffrey Armitage.

Geoff, recently jilted by a lover and determined never to trust another woman again, nonetheless agrees to the cockeyed scheme to pretend a betrothal to Maria in order to gain unfettered access to her father. Certain the plan will help him trap the man whose leaks are playing havoc with the British troops, what he did not plan on was Maria's admirable displays of courage and loyalty, along with her very acute mind and surprising abundance of womanly charms.

Despite their mutual wariness as Maria strives to convince Geoff of her father's virtue while Geoff tries to entrap the man, an undeniable attraction and searing passion flare up between the two. And as their investigation closes in on a traitor who could be hiding among the highest levels of the aristocracy and the government, Geoff and Maria may discover that their greatest enemy is their traitorous hearts . . .

**Disclaimer: I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.** 3.5-4 stars I've just started getting into the Regency/historical romances, and fffffhh.. give me more!! This story includes one of my favorite tropes (fake relationship/engagement/marriage) that blossoms into ~something more~. The "spy" plot wasn't great, but it wasn't bad either. I failed to see the main character, Maria, doing any productive spying or espionage that would've considered her a "lady spy." PROS: + Fake relationship trope + Regency romance + Captain Geoffrey Armitage (swoon) CONS: - The mystery plot was meh - Insta-love - slow-burn is better. - The first half of the book was great, but it took me a bit longer to get through the last half. - For what the book is, it could have been shorter.

Set in England, this is the story of a Marie whose father is suspected of sending information to Napoleon's army. Goeff has been given the assignment to uncover who is spying and bring him to justice. When she overhears the plot, she is determined to clear her father's name. To do this, she and Goeff fake an engagement and work together to learn the truth. But who can they trust? Follow them as they uncover the spies and fall in love. Disclaimer: There are several explicit sex scenes in the book which added nothing to the storyline. I wish the author had left them out. Those scenes is why I gave the book only two stars.

I like romances which are more than just that.A very spirited beauty with brains Maria and a grouchy Captain Geoffrey are the main characters in this story.They need to find a traitor who is trying to incriminate Maria and her father by leaking sensitive documents. With lots of twists and turns and suspects this book leads us on a merry adventure. Well written page turner. Thankyou Netgalley and beyond the page publishing for this ARC

A delightful dance of two people trying to prove the other wrong in this Regency story set in London, 1813. Miss Maria Dalbrooke is a bluestocking wallflower. Yes, intelligence has it's drawbacks as far as the eligible men are concerned. She has been aiding her father, who works with the Horse Guards, which is really a breach in security but as long as nobody knows, what harm could it be? Unfortunately one, Captain Geoff Armitage, has been given the task to find out who has been leaking secrets from the very group her father is part of... With a few twists and turns, Maria ends up pretending to be betrothed so she can help him find the truth and show her father's innocence. But have I mentioned the Captain is swoon worthy? But determined. Weary due to being jilted. Very attracted to Maria. Fighting hard against it. Let yourself be taken away as you turn the pages to find out what happens with these two and if they find the real spy if she can convince him it is not her father!! Don't miss this one! I read this through NetGallery and the wonderful Publisher! Lori Dykes
