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.

    Beautiful

    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.

    Pretty good

    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.

    I Loved It!! Well Worth Your Time!!!!

    '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.

    Excellent

    One of the most interesting books out there, this book lacks for nothing. James was great and Robbie nearly stole the show. Phillipa was a wonderful smart woman who just happened to be beautiful as well. James was such a wonderful, caring and sensitive man, I did hate to see him hurting for so long, though. Just a great, great tale, a true page turner to the very end, with hot love scenes as well.

    Delightful romance

    In 1813 London, James Cunningham trusts no one ever since his lady love Lavinnia Winchell kidnapped him to learn the names of the Liars Club members, troublemakers to her patron Napoleon. James feels guilty because he revealed those names and much of the group died. He seeks evidence to implicate Lavinnia, but she insists it was a love tryst that went wrong........................ Phillipa Atwater remains unsure what to do as she does not know what her missing father Rupert meant with the missive ¿watch out for James Cunningham¿. Dressed as a man, she arrives at James¿ home seeking the job of tutor to nine years old Robbie. She hopes to find a clue that will elucidate her dad¿s note and rescue him from the French who abducted him. She introduces herself as Phillip and obtains the position. James goes to the Liar¿s Club to discuss Rupert, who once was a cryptograph member, but now turned traitor and is working for Napoleon. They seek his missing daughter who might break Napoleon¿s latest codes developed by Rupert. She falls in love with her employer, but he believes she is ¿Flip¿, a weak male though he finds himself looking strangely at ¿him¿............................... Fans of the Liar¿s Club novels (see THE PRETENDER and THE IMPOSTER) will appreciate the return of delightful characters as they add depth to the exciting story line. The lead female protagonist is a courageous individual whose dilemma of safety vs. falling in love makes for fun reading. She/¿he¿ make the novel. Though the resolution of James¿ ¿guilt¿ allows the cleansing of his soul and the tough evil villainess is pathetic, this is a fun tale as the audience will enjoy the often amusing adventures of Flip........................
