New Release: A Spy's Devotion


Book Title: A Spy's Devotion
Author: Melanie Dickerson
Publication Date: February 9, 2016
Publisher: Waterfall Press

Description:
In England's Regency era, manners and elegance reign in public life--but behind closed doors, treason and intrigue thrive...

Nicholas Langdon is no stranger to reserved civility or bloody barbarity. After suffering a battlefield injury, the wealthy, well-connected British officer returns home to heal—and to fulfill a dying soldier’s last wish by delivering his coded diary.

At the home of the Wilherns, one of England’s most powerful families, Langdon attends a lavish ball where he meets their beautiful and intelligent ward, Julia Grey. Determined to maintain propriety, he keeps his distance—until the diary is stolen and all clues lead to Julia’s guardian. As Langdon traces an evil plot that could be the nation’s undoing, he grows ever more intrigued by the lovely young woman. And when Julia realizes that England—and the man she is falling in love with—need her help, she finds herself caught in the fray.

Will the two succumb to their attraction while fighting to save their country?


My Review:
For any of you who have read Melanie Dickerson's Fairy Tale Romance Series you'll know that her books are keepers. I had high expectations when I started her new series; which takes place in London during the Regency era. I was not disappointed. In fact, this is now one of my favorites of all her books!

While there could have been more suspense added to the story I was satisfied with the amount there was. The characters were all well developed. Julia and Nicholas were of course my favorites. Although far from perfect, they had many good qualities that are an example to anyone who reads. And the romance between them was dream worthy yet realistic too.

A perfect read for young adults and grown-ups alike.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
