Romance and wartime espionage mix delightfully in the fourth Lost Lords Regency (after Nowhere Near Respectable) from bestseller Putney. Experienced secret agent Cassie Fox is sent to France at the height of the Napoleonic wars in search of the long-missing Grey Sommers, Lord Wyndham, illegally imprisoned by the corrupt and vengeful official Claude Durand after a tryst with Durand’s wife. Even a successful rescue and the pair’s passionate encounters cannot heal the trauma of Grey’s decade-long ordeal or bridge the social gap between the dedicated spy with a mysterious past and the heir to an earldom. Cassie is an independent and impressively competent heroine who is both lover and savior for her troubled hero. The unusually balanced and sensitively depicted romantic duo, suspenseful adventure, and well-researched historical background make this a must for Regency fans. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (May)
