About The Marquess Meets His Match
A traitor with a deadly plan. Two agents sent to expose his identity before he strikes. But danger is closer than they think . . .
Lord Christian Wolverton―known as Wolf in a covert group operating during the war against Napoleon―has been called home from his military duties. For the moment, his family responsibilities require him to suspend his more clandestine activities. But information falls into his hands that a traitor will soon try to tip the scales back into French favor and Christian doesn’t have much time to stop it from happening.
Going to the one person who can help him, the powerful Duke of Huntingdon, Christian comes face to face with Lady Alice. She’s a beautiful member of the ton with a very big secret―she’s also a trained agent and already on the case. Forced to partner with her to lure the traitor out of hiding, Christian wants to quickly close the case himself, before Lady Alice is more closely involved. But Lady Alice has ideas of her own and she’s going to prove her theories correct―with or without him.
Danger is closer than they think, however, and it’s a race against time to expose the traitor’s identity before British lives are endangered. Both Christian and Alice have strong opinions on who he is, but which one will be proven right and can they catch him before it’s too late?
I loved this book! I was dragged into the story from the very beginning. And I didn’t want to stop reading. I was able to start and finish this one the very same day. It’s just so engaging!
Lady Alice is a great character. I loved how she was just gifted as a spy. She was a bit reckless, that just added to her charm. Who doesn’t want to imagine that they are a member of the ton, get to wear fancy dresses and be a spy on top of that?! I loved being able to see things through her eyes.
Then there’s Lord Wolverton or Christian. I liked that he was constantly watching out for Lady Alice, even when she didn’t need it. He was smart, he figures things out on his own at the end of the book. Even before it’s revealed to the reader. I loved that! It’s always nice to get points of view from the hero as well as the heroine. And I love when they kind of match in skill. That’s the case in this one.
If you like Regency books, you’ll love this one with the spy and romance twist! I loved it!
