When weapons designer Eliza Qwillen (Q) is sent to the English countryside with Pierce Moneypence, clerk to the mysterious M, she’s worried the memory of their steamy encounter will interfere with the task at hand.
The operatives are intent upon capturing the highwayman styling himself as the New Sheriff of Nottingham. But with the Sheriff in their sights, secret rendezvous, mistaken identities, and cat-and-mouse games challenge these fledgling agents—and Q and Pierce will learn that rediscovering their passion for each other is the most rewarding mission of all.

Anyone who has read Shana Galen’s fantastic Lord and Lady Spy series will be thrilled with this novella, and those who haven’t will know what they’ve been missing. THE SPY BENEATH THE MISTLETOE features Eliza Qwillen and Pierce Moneypence, who work along spies, but are usually in the background. A highwayman who calls himself the New Sherriff of Nottingham is wreaking havoc in the countryside, and Eliza and Pierce have been dispatched to catch the villain. Eliza and Pierce, who have a lot of chemistry, but this is not the time to flirt, there is a job to be done, but one can always find a moment or two for romance, can one? BENEATH THE MISTLETOE is absolutely delightful, as is the case for each instalment of the Lord and Lady Spy series. The characters are great, there’s a lot of action and romance, it’s fast-paced and fun, the dialogues are brilliant, and of course it’s beautifully written. Shana Galen never disappoints! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
