This is one of those I have no idea what she sees in him stories The hero, Gavin Graham, is a spy for England, currently at work at the diplomatic congress in Vienna The nitwit he answers to with the diplomatic corps doesn t like the way he s hanging about with a beautiful Russian countess who is rud to be a spy he apparently doesn t appreciate the fine art of intelligence gathering , so he recruits a nondescript governess who once jilted Gavin to lure him away from the spy great plan, that Laur [...]
This was a major disappointment to me Not one of her best, by far The hero, Gavin, is unlikeable and immature Laura, the heroine, behaves in inexplicable ways as she tries to involve herself in spy craft.
That back cover blurb is basically a blatant lie The only truth to the matter is that Laura Devane was sent to the Congress of Vienna to distract Gavin Graham away from the mysterious Countess Krelov Everyone believes she will fail at this mission including Laura herself because once upon a time, Gavin had asked for her hand in marriage, and she had rejected him He hadn t loved her at the time, only the fortune her father possessed, and she knew that, hence the rejection.10 years have passed in [...]
This so far has been one of my favorites of Jane s books It tells of a young lady employed to watch a man so he does not sleep around while in town on government business What she does not know is that he is a spy who is using people to get information She gets stuck in the spy business and gets hooked She becomes in love with being a spy and in love with the spy They go through a bunch of troubles and tribulations that bring them close to his breaking point All around a great read that I very m [...]
Dangerously CharmingAn obtuse general becomes an instrument of fate when he decides he must distract Gavin Graham from dallying with that red haired spy He sends his wife to find the woman who turned Graham down years ago, not realizing Laura s family had lost everything and she d spent ten years as a governess.Gavin will not be distracted from his mission to collect vital information by such a transparent ploy Laura will not be relegated to the sidelines of life yet again The chemistry between [...]
Terrible cover notwithstanding, this was a pretty good story Laura was an interesting and smart heroine Turns out that governess training can also be perfect for spy training the author even manages to convince the reader that this is just barely plausible The hero Gavin is less of a draw First, his name is Gavin what He comes off as REALLY dismissive of Laura s intelligence for way too long, and he just didn t seem that alluring as a True Love The plot is fun, though Set in Vienna at the close [...]
It doesn t matter how many time I read it I still love this book I love Laura s way of viewing the world and her sense of adventure I love the way she drives Gavin crazy with her unpredictable behaviour and conducts her life and investigations with intelligence, and with a view contributing to something important rather than being about getting involved in Gavin s life or showing him up My only regret is that there was not a sequel I would have loved to see Gavin Laura s adventures as a married [...]
Pues parecia interesante pero no me gusto, por m s que lo intente nunca le crei a la prota que era inteligente y que podria ser espia digo como si por ir conversando con todo el mundo en una fiesta te conviertas en una, luego la pareja sin chispa, lo bueno que solo hay una historia de la autora disponible en espa ol.
Spy story Good characters Okay romance.
I hate Gavin I don t want him anywhere near any woman He can go to hell So no, I m not finishing this book.
Godd combination of spies and romance, set mainly in Vienna at the time of the Congress.
I didn t like the way Gavin treated Laura, even knowing why he did it The author broke the rule of alpha protagonists I wouldn t sleep with him So I stopped reading 100 pages in Yawn.
