Overview

A Christmas house party, a sexy lady spy, and an enigmatic earl spell holiday magic. Join New York Times bestselling author Jane Feather in this seductive story of spy and counterspy dueling beneath the mistletoe.

While others dance and flirt, Lady Harriet Devere has a secret life, assisting her older brother Nick with his duties as a British spy. When Nick is killed, however, Harriet assumes that her work passing coded messages to the Ministry of War will cease. Instead, she is charged with a vitally important mission: spend Christmas determining if Julius Forsythe, Earl of Marbury, is a double agent for the French.

Harriet expects danger, just not to her heart. . . . As the hostess of a holiday house party, she is perfectly placed to closely observe her noble guest—his elegant clothes, his penetrating dark eyes, his virile athletic build. But when passion flames between them, Harriet realizes that only a holiday miracle will allow her to find true love—in the arms of this spy who has come for Christmas.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This 1797 holiday crowd-pleaser calls for an afternoon curled up next to the fireplace. No heat? No worries. Feather (A Wedding Wager) provides plenty of sparks between English spies Lady Harriet Devere and Julius Forsythe, earl of Marbury. Harriet is assigned to determine whether Julius is a dastardly double agent who slit the throat of her brother, Nicholas. She’s given the perfect opportunity at her grandfather’s annual Christmas gala, where Julius is in attendance. Harriet is suspicious from the moment she meets the earl. He assures her that he and Nick were best friends, but she can’t recall her brother ever mentioning Julian’s name, and later she catches him in a small but undeniable lie. On the other hand, he’s thoroughly charmed her grandfather and her 10-year-old twin siblings—and she finds him devilishly attractive. Readers will cheer as Harriet bravely wages dual battles against a pair of French spies and her own desires. Agent: Susan Ginsburg, Writers House. (Nov.)
Library Journal
Lady Harriet Devere is enlisted by the government to help to unmask the man responsible for her secret agent brother Nicholas's death. She agrees to keep tabs on a possible suspect, her brother's friend and fellow spy Julius Forsythe, Earl of Marbury, during the upcoming family Christmas celebration. Harriet's sleuthing—and the disturbing proximity of the earl—leads to unintended consequences. The more she comes to know—and love—Julius, the more divided her loyalties become. VERDICT Appealing protagonists, a charming, slowly developing romance, and an intriguing, nicely spun mystery will make this a perfect romance for fans who like their holiday fare with a dash of danger. Feather (A Wedding Wager) is a veteran writer of popular historical romance; she lives on Chesapeake Bay.

    Whoever wrote the overview did not read the complete story:
    Lady Harriet (Harry) Devere’s brother was an English spy that was killed in the line of duty. Julius Forsythe, Earl of Marbury was he’s friend and partner.
    The war office wants Harriet to watch Julius Forsythe, Earl of Marbury at her grandfather’s holiday house party, and report anything that would indicate Julius is a double agent for the French.
    The attraction is there between them from the start and both try and fight it.

    This was a sentimental purchase ¿ my first Feather in a number of years.

    Her well-researched stories that took place during the French revolution, the Queen Mary Court and even earlier in Queen Ann’s court and the Peninsula Wars, all gripped me. Violet, The Silver Rose, The Accidental Bride, To Kiss a Spy and Almost a Bride, with their well-drawn plots and memorable characters are still in my active library. Those come highly recommended by me. What a disappointment, then, this book was! Peopled by cardboard, uninteresting characters and a lame is-he, or isn’t-he a double-agent plot gave me the impression that it was hastily pulled together in time for Christmas
