In this spellbinding new Regency series by Christi Caldwell, The Heart of a Duke meets the Brethren of the Lords. The stakes are high and passions flare hot in Regency England! 

A widow with a past… The last thing Victoria Barrett, the Viscountess Waters, has any interest in is romance. When the only man she’s ever loved was killed she endured an arranged marriage to a cruel man in order to survive. Now widowed, her only focus is on clearing her son’s name from the charge of murder. That is until the love of her life returns from the grave.

A leader of a once great agency… Nathaniel Archer, the Earl of Exeter head of the Crown’s elite organization, The Brethren, is back on British soil. Captured and tortured 20 years ago, he clung to memories of his first love until he could escape. Discovering she has married whilst he was captive, Nathaniel sets aside the distractions of love...until an unexpected case is thrust upon him-- to solve the murder of the Viscount Waters. There is just one complication: the prime suspect's mother is none other than Victoria, the woman he once loved with his very soul.

Secrets will be uncovered and passions rekindled.  Victoria and Nathaniel must trust one another if they hope to start anew—in love and life. But will duty destroy their last chance?

Christi Caldwell never ceases to amaze me. Her writing is so masterful that I find myself drawn inside each of her stories as if I am the one experiencing the happiness, sadness, anger, etc., and The Spy Who Seduced Her is no different. It had me hooked from chapter one. It gives you everything: suspense, intrigue, emotion and best of all second chance love. If you have any doubts about the characters being older, please do not let that stop you from getting this book. I am confident that you will love Victoria and Nathaniel as much as I do. They are two imperfect people who made choices, some right and some wrong, that allowed them to survive awful situations, and I think everyone can relate to having to make tough choices at times. How relatable the characters are is what I love most about Ms. Caldwell's books. I also enjoyed getting to see characters from the Heart of a Duke series and My Lady of Deception, and I can't wait to find out how she is going to redeem Tennyson. I love how in one book you can hate a character so much, but Caldwell gives you a glimpse into their back story in the next book, and you realize there are so many layers to her characters that maybe your first impression was wrong. There is no doubt that she does redemption stories better than any other author I have ever read. So whether you begin with this book, which can be stand alone, or start with the Heart of a Duke series to get the back stories, don't hesitate to pick up a Christi Caldwell book today. I know you will become as lost in the world she creates as all of us that found this fabulous author years ago. So don't delay; get this book today! I was provided an ARC for an honest review.

5* I love love love this book!!! Christi Caldwell has written a amazing second chance love story that filled me with such happiness at the end. Nathaniel and Victoria were young lovers with such hope for the future. Nathaniel always promised to return from his work with the Brethren until the one day he did not. Unknown to Victoria he's taken captive. Months later and with nowhere else to turn she's married off to save her from scandal. Two years later Nathaniel returned to find his only savor married with children and all is lost. Nathaniel leads a solitary life and dedicates his soul to the Brethren. Then the worst happens and Victoria's husband is murdered and the implications land on her family. Nathaniel will not allow anyone but him to find the one responsible and save Victoria. The years that have passed have not deadened the love they have for each other but misunderstanding and suspicion of the past and future could destroy it all. This book,is full of twists and turns, longing for time lost and hope for what can be. I can not wait to read the next book, I want Andrew to have a HEA!

The Spy Who Seduced Her by Christi Caldwell The Brethren Series Book One Nathaniel Archer, the Earl of Exeter and Sovereign of the Brethren has lived a hard life. He had loved and lost that love and so much more. After that loss—he everything he had to the Brethren. Taking dangerous missions, after all, what did he have left to lose? Nothing. Lady Victoria Barrett, Viscountess Waters loved her children and grandchildren. She had once know love but to the man she had married—she only knew hate. She didn't mourn him when he was murdered...only the fact that her son was being blamed for the murder. A really good story with some surprising twists. Nathaniel, as Sovereign, usually stays in the office but when this case crosses his desk...he's determined to get to the bottom of who killed Viscount Waters. As always with Christi Caldewell's books, I'm looking forward to the next book in this new series. My Lady of Deception takes place about twenty years before and has some connections to this book. **Sexual content

Christi Caldwell know how to captive her readers with mystery, adventure and murder all tied around a love that is as old as time. Victoria said good bye to the only man she ever loved the day he was killed. Many years have come and past with a few mistakes and lots of heartache. Having to marry a man she never love who was cruel and hurtful in so many ways. Now he is dead well murdered she cannot find it in herself to feel sorry, who wouldn’t be happy to see that man take his last breath. She has turned the last page in that book it is closed but now she must help her son clear his name and prove he didn’t do it. Just when she thinks she might get her life in order and clear her son she get slapped in the face coming face to face with the only man she ever love. Can this be real? Is this some kind of cruel joke? Is he really alive? What does this mean? Could he be so cruel as to let her think he was dead? So many thoughts going through her mind, lost love, how she mourned him and the whole time he was alive and well leaving her to face the fallout from their love. He abandoned her when she needed him the most. She had been so sure of his love and that he would come for her only to have him die but now face to face she finds she is reliving her nightmare all over again. Nathaniel is a very bitter man and has been a very for years he thought she betrayed their love casting him aside and moving on to live a life of pleasure why he was taken and tortured. The only thing that kept him going was her. The thought of her waiting for him and his returning to clam what was his only to find she took another in his place. He left a very bitter man as he walked right out of her life. Now he comes face to face with her vowing to find the truth to her husband death. He thought he could deal with it that the need for her would be over he finds he is so wrong. He has a job to do, will the love he has for her get in the way? With the passion stronger than it ever was they both fight the feeling but love must come through which turns their world upside down. These two were meant to be together as the story unfolds you fall so in love with them. Their passion is so real it holds the reader spellbound. What a wonderful exciting and thrilling story of second chance love. Nathaniel and Victoria deserve to break out of the prison they have both been in they deserve this second chance to find happiness. The author gives you a wonderful plot with characters that become very real to the reader. I found myself talking to them begging them to give it another try they deserve happiness after going through so much. I loved the fact that the romance was built around an older couple. Ones who made mistakes but never gave up on their love no matter how bad things got their memories kept the other going putting one foot in front of the other until they could have the happy ever after they deserved. The author gives the read the hope that there is true love it never fails but lives on and grows stronger each day. The author has a talent giving the readers a compelling story that pulls them in, making you want to cry, cheering the characters on. You forget you are reading as these characters become real they are like family to you. I loved the plot, characters and the ending was just delightful. I can’t wait to see where this new series will go and meet all the new characters we will come to love. ********************* Book Obsessed Chicks Review

I was captivated from the first page until the very last. This is a story of shattered dreams and endurance by two souls who were meant for each other, or at least it seemed. Nathaniel Archer, the Earl of Exeter has devoted his life to one purpose...to defend his country. Many years ago when he was a young agent, he met and fell in love with Victoria Barrett, who loved him in return. But as love often goes, they were pulled apart by circumstances with Victoria believing Nathaniel dead. As fate would have it, many years later they meet again when Victoria's husband has been murdered and Nathaniel becomes the investigator into the death. Shock, disbelief and betrayal are only a few of the emotions that surround their meeting. All the years apart come back with each not knowing the truth behind their earlier separation. Christie Caldwell has brought such emotion and an understanding of the characters feelings to life, that you feel as if you are experiencing the highs and lows with Nathaniel and Victoria. These are two people who deserve so much happiness due to their pasts, that you rapidly turn the pages to hopefully feel that emotion. This is such a well written story, as are all of this author's books that you will be anxiously looking for the next book

I've never really read a story with an older couple (mind you, I'm older than the couple in the book) and wasn't really sure what I would think of Nathaniel and Victoria's story. All I can say is WOW! I fell in love with Victoria's personality and straight up love for her children. She taught them how to love and hope even in her horrible situation without Nathaniel. Then there's Nathaniel with his own demons to fight where Victoria is concerned. The mistakes they both made are soon brought to light, but that doesn't fix the problem Victoria's son is in, or Nathaniel's job situation. I felt like I was about to cry through most of the book, sometimes sad, sometimes happy, but at the end, I almost woke up my family with the whooping noise I made! (It was 1230 am when I finished the book, I couldn't put it down) I can now say, I LOVE the more mature hero/heroine stories!
