A Game of Spies
When Josette Sourantine visits her widowed sister-in-law in London, she finds Celeste hosting twice-weekly salons for dancing, flirtations, and gambling on cards. With a talent for whist, she is commanded by Celeste to have charge of the card room. Very quickly she attracts attention from the cynical rake Tobias Kennit as well as the handsome society prize Lord Gordon Musgrove. Yet it is the mysterious Giles Hargreaves who intrigues her.
Col. Giles Hargreaves, son of the Marquess of Grasmere, has found the émigré spying for Napoleon, but he cannot arrest her until he locates the source feeding her vital government secrets. He attends the Sourantine salons hoping to locate the man stealing the information for Celeste which she then smuggles to France. He decides to dally with Celeste only to be distracted by the lovely Josette.
As their mutual attraction turns into flirtation then deepens into something neither wants to name, Giles worries he is blinding himself. Josette is the spy’s sister; how could she not be embroiled in the betrayal of England? Josette fears she is giving her heart to a man who is more of a rake than Tobias Kennit. How can he love her when they have known each other so briefly?
When the net begins to close around the spy and her compatriots, Josette is caught up as well. Will Giles lose her just when he’s given is heart to her?
A sweet Regency historical.
To the Reader: A Game of Spies follows A Game of Secrets, which is a complete novel with no cliff-hangers. While readers may find that reading the first novel creates a fuller experience, it is not necessary to read it in order to enjoy this book. And while the trilogy concludes with A Game of Hearts, another novel that stands on its own, A Game of Spies does not end with a cliff-hanger.
