In 1830 the four orphaned Sutherland sisters became close friends of Princess Victoria. She trusts the siblings with her own safety so she asks them to go undercover to investigate potential threats the Crown. They agree. Victoria believes her cousin Lord Munster George Fitzclarence is plotting something seditious and nasty. She asks Laurel to pretend to be a widow in order to learn if he is and if yes what he intends to do. At the same time she begins her masquerade ploy, agent Aidan Phillips is working undercover to identify who is behind a financial scandal that includes homicide. Aidan is attracted to the widow, but fears she is Fitzclarence's partner. The first Sutherland called to duty; Laurel is a superb early Victorian Era heroine. Her cat and mouse dangerous game with Aidan is fun to follow as neither trusts the other while sharing in common a need to uncover Fitzclarence's seditious acts and a need of love. Fitzclarence was a real historical person which enhances the story line by bringing a genuineness to the entertaining plot. Fast-paced, fans will enjoy the opening act of Her Majesty's Secret Servants as dueling investigations lead to a traitor and love. Harriet Klausner

The premise of this book (actually a series of books the rest coming later) is four orphaned sisters raised by their bachelor uncle as neighbors to the future Queen Victoria. They promise to come to her aid if she ever needs then as her 'Secret Servants'. In other words, they will spy or do other clandestine work for their Queen. The first sister, Laurel is asked to pose as a wealthy widow in order keep an eye on Victoria's jealous cousin, George Fitzclarence. She butts heads with Aidan Phillips, the Earl of Barensforth, an undercover agent for the Home Office and a good friend to Fitzclarence. There is murder, a financial hoax and other mayhem. And of course, even though Fitzclarence (who is a bastard son of the late King) shows interest in Laurel, her heart belongs to Barensforth. This is the first in a series for the Sutherland sisters. I really enjoyed Laurels story and can not wait to read Ivy, Holly & Willow's stories.

BORING. I love romances that keep me engaged and flipping through the pages as fast as I can. This book just didn't do that for me. I was easily able to put it aside and at one point even forgot that I hadn't finished it yet.
