True Spies


Today's post is on True Spies by Shana Galen. It is 346 pages long and is published by Source Books. It is the second in her Lord and Lady Spy series. The cover has the two main characters on it looking at the reader. The intended reader is someone who likes historical romance, fun plots, and spies. There is language, sex, and violence in this book. The story is told from the third person close of the two main characters. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- He's Getting Tired of Deception...
Baron Winslow Keating is honor-bound to finish one last mission as an elite spy for the Barbican group even though he just wants to go home and be with his family. But after years of secrecy and absence, his daughters hardly know him, and his wife has given up on him.
She Wants to Try a Little Intrigue...
Lady Elinor has had enough of domestic boredom. She contemplates an affair with a rakish spy, only to discover a world of intrigue and treachery that she never knew existed. Even more shocking, her neglectful husband is suddenly very attentive—quite the jealous type—and apparently there is much more to him than she ever knew.

Review- This was a fun historical romp with spies. It is very clearly based in the movie True Lies but that just made it more fun for me. I liked both the main characters. Winn quickly regrets treating his wife so poorly and wants to make a real life with her. She is willing to try and trust him again. They met in the middle so the love story is good. The spy plot is fun and I want to know more about the other characters. In particular I want to know more about Blue. He made me think of the Scarlet Pimpernel with his disguises and plans. Very fun.

I give this book a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I borrowed this book from my local library.
