Title: Dare to Love a Spy (Book 3, Age of Innocence)
Author: Debra Elizabeth
Genre: Regency Romance
Miss Hannah Richardson is enjoying a Season in London. She's not looking for a husband, at least not this Season. She wants to enjoy herself before settling down to married life. All that changes, however, when she sees the Duke of Wetherby. He's tall, dark and impossibly handsome and someone Hannah wants to get to know better. Camden Darkin, the Duke of Wetherby, is not fond of attending soirees, dinners or balls, but his latest mission for the Crown demands he mingle with the ton. He has vowed not to marry because of his dangerous work and the constant bevy of beauties anxious mothers throw into his path is not tempting him in the least. That is, until he meets Hannah Richardson, a young woman unlike any other he's ever met. Can he learn to love or will his hardened heart rob him of the very thing he needs the most?
Hannah Richardson is enjoying her first season in London. She’s having the time of her life and not looking for a husband. That is, until she lays eyes on Camden, the Duke of Wetherby. Her impetuous nature gets the better of her whenever he is near and she wants nothing more than to kiss him. They dance, flirt and kiss in her aunt’s garden. She’s falling in love with him but suddenly he disappears. She’s hurt and doesn’t know what faux pas she committed but is determined to confront him when she sees him next. Little does she know, her confrontation could lead to her untimely demise.
I loved this book! While it’s short (200 pages), there’s a lot that takes place. It has everything I love in a romance: Regency era, hero is a spy, heroine is spunky and speaks her mind, a bit of danger and a happy ending. From the first page, I was transported to Regency England. I connected with Hannah right away and found her excitement infectious. Camden is a hero conflicted between what his heart wants and his very dangerous job as a spy for the Crown. The plot is character-driven with plenty of intrigue and romance. The romance is sweet and the stolen kisses caused me to grin as I read.
Yes, this is book three but it can be read as a standalone. I haven’t read books one or two (yet) and I didn’t get lost. Truth me, the author fill in the details in books one and two so you get the full picture.
If you’re looking for a sweet Regency romance to pass an afternoon or evening, pick up Dare to Love a Spy today.
