Overview
THE BEAUTY. THE SPY. AND THE BEHOLDER.
From the beloved New York Times bestselling Madeline Hunter comes this riveting historical romance, in which a darkly handsome nobleman is determined to unmask a delicate and mysterious young beauty...
A refugee from the war in France, Marielle Lyon has established herself at the fringes of London society. Claiming to be the niece of an executed aristocrat, Marielle welcomes the gossip that she is a spy. The more eyes she has watching her, the better protected she is--and the better chance she has of saving her father's life.
A warrior at heart, Alban Norwood, Viscount Kendale, would still be in uniform if not for his older brother's untimely death. After all he's seen, Kendale doesn't trust the French--or their femmes fatales. He has set up a surveillance network to ferret out undercover agents, and he believes he's found one in the delicate, mysterious Marielle.
Ready to pounce on his tempting prey, Kendale arranges a meeting with Marielle, who is more beautiful and more cunning than he anticipated. But the Viscount is ready to do whatever it takes to unmask her--even if it means playing a game of seduction...

Bestseller Hunter (The Conquest of Lady Cassandra) stumbles with this passionless historical tale of an English spy-hunter and a young woman who’s determined to rescue her father from French revolutionaries and bring his nemesis to justice. Former soldier Gavin Norwood, Viscount Kendale, has been following Marielle Lyon for over a year, trying to gather proof that she’s a French spy. When she’s attacked in an alley, he comes to her rescue and is forced to admit his interest is personal as well as professional. Marielle isn’t above using his obvious lust against him, especially if it will help her bring down the evil Antoine Lamberte, who had her father arrested and is still hunting her in France. The plot drags and the story offers few surprises, as all loose ends are eventually wrapped up with minimal effort. Despite the attention to period detail, even Hunter’s most ardent fans may have trouble staying awake through this lackluster story. Agent: Pam Hopkins, Hopkins Literary Associates. (Oct.)
