For Her Spy Only
Release date: July 21, 2014
Publisher: Entangled: Scandalous
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance

England, 1814

When Winifred is rescued from her snow-stranded carriage by the notorious and reclusive Alistair, Marquess of Coventry, she is instantly drawn to him. Jilted by her betrothed and socially ruined by untrue rumors, Winifred is tired of paying for crimes she didn't commit and decides to play the seductress London society claims she is. Thinking a night of passion shouldn't leave any lasting effects, she instead finds her heart marked forever.

Six years later, Alistair is working for the Regent as a spy. A search for Napoleon's English supporters leads him to the beguiling Winifred, recently widowed with a young son. He hasn't forgotten how the unconventional beauty warmed his bed, and the heat between them rekindles immediately. The spymaster is determined to uncover all of plucky Winifred's secrets. Especially the one regarding her son...

My Rating: 3 Roses

Short and sweet, For Her Spy Only was a lovely historical romance novella. I really liked this quick and enjoyable read.

Both characters were great. Winifred was a kind-hearted, likable character who was devoted to her son, who had a speech impediment he inherited from his father. Alistair, who was brilliant with numbers and not so great with words and people, was sweet in his own way. I liked them both.

The romance was sweet, though kind of shallow, even for a novella. But, I thought it was very sweet how Winifred loved Alistair, including his oddities that made him distant from society. I thought they were a lovely couple.

The plot moved quickly and I was kept interested the entire way through. I enjoyed the story and the ending was sweet.

For Her Spy Only was a sweet historical romance novella. I enjoyed reading it and I quite liked it. Romance lovers, if you want to light and fast read, you'll want to check this one out.
