Read an Excerpt

James stirred in his slumping repose in the chair. His long hard body was stretched quite unselfconsciously before Philippa, and she realized that for once she could look her fill.

She leaned toward him to stare into his face, close enough to detect the brandy on his breath and the sandalwood on his skin. She shut her eyes for a moment and breathed deeply. Brandy and sandalwood and James.

Opening her eyes, she gazed at the structure of his face. The firelight bronzed the strong cheekbone and jaw, and shadowed that dent just below his full bottom lip. Stubble darkened his cheeks, giving him a dangerous air even in sleep. Her fingertips itched to feel that manly roughness. Then, with great serenity, she noticed her hand reaching toward him.

"Why, thank you, I do believe I will," she whispered to herself.

Mrs. Bradley has always proven wonderful to me through her novels and 'The Spy' was no exception. I was curious as to how the author would build a romance between a woman disguised as a male tutor and a spy seeking her out. It was in fact done beautifully and the end result was one that fascinated me. This novel shows the treasures of love. James'lead male'is able to redeem himself to others and HIMSELF through the acts of the one who loves him 'Phillipa' it is proof of a healing, lasting love betwwen the two.

I didn't like all of the book but there were quite a few good parts of the book. I like the Liar's Club series overall and the end of this book was the best.

'The Spy' is the first romance I have ever read, and i love it so much. I have read this book over and over again, I have bought all of the Liar's Club books along with all of the Royal Four books. I really enjoyed how Mrs. Bradley connects all of the books together by the villain of the piece. I cant wait to read more of her books.
