    Who's Spying on Who?

    The Insignificance of Being a Spy by Suzy Stewart Dubot Marcus Beaumont is the 5th Viscount of Driscoll. He is also a spy for England. He recently barely made it out of a situation and will be glad when he can be done with all of this. He would really love to have a home and family but not while he has to disappear for months at a time. When his friend Conrad Winston tells him about a beautiful widow who shot him down...quite a turn of events as women never turned Conrad down...Marcus decides he will meet her and once he does he can’t get Arabelle Wentworth out of his lusty thoughts. Widowed Caroline Winston Edwards had an unusual marriage. One that left her knowledgeable about politics since Jason had talked with her as an equal. After his death she was recreated. First she sought out to find her husbands murderer and then she ended up being a spy for England. Most in life though Caroline desired for a certain man to notice her in more than a passing way. Conrad Winston was not quite who everyone thought him to be. They thought him to be a gambler and a rake. Yet he was much more. In the upper ranks of being a spy he knew both his sister and friend were spies as well but neither of them knew of each other or Conrad. He couldn’t wait until they could all retire and laugh about it. Another interesting story from Suzy with plenty of unexpected twists and turns. Her writing lets you in the minds of most of the characters not just the main two. There are also little stories going on along with the main one which is much to do with the spy ring and those involved. But no fear there is plenty of romance and more. **Sexual situations
