Publisher's Summary

Stealing a code book from an enemy spy should be easy for someone like Frederica Vale. As the plain-looking older sister, she's practically invisible at social events. Never mind that she has no experience as a spy or that the codebook rests in the possession of one of the most powerful men in England. Freddie has no choice - she's desperate to save her young sister from the lecherous intentions of their guardian and recovering the book is her only option.

Tristan Graylocke has never been able to measure up to his brother, the Duke of Tenwick. But being second best has its advantages. No one pressures him to get married and produce an heir, leaving him to carouse at will - an activity that lends itself perfectly to the brothers' secret lives as spies.

When an alluring enemy spy shows up at the house party planned specifically for the purposes of passing along a code book, Tristan finds himself drawn under her spell. Freddie seems innocent and inexperienced. Is her innocence a clever guise, or is she being coerced by someone?

Tristan and Freddie soon find themselves engaged in a seductive game of cat and mouse where each will do what they must for their country, especially if it involves kissing the enemy.

Sex scene was completely unnecessary and does not belong

I thought the writing was pretty interesting and clever. I would’ve given this a better review, except for there was an absolutely needless sex scene in the middle of the book that I did nothing. I felt like I went from a well written mystery story, into a stupid bad romance novel. Ugggg. This author does a newer series that I like much better than this one.

Strangest narrator ever experienced

This narrator was absolutely the worst one I’ve had the displeasure of coming across. She spoke like a goofball with an indiscernible accent that vascillated between British? and some weird American/Southern sound. If I were listening to a slapstick comedy with odd accents this one would fit the bill but it’s supposed to be a serious book. And on top of that, the recording was terrible. There were two overlapping recordings at one point so words spoken in the background overlapped the actual transcript of the reading. I will avoid this narrator like the plague from now on. Absolutely the most awful narration I’ve ever heard.

A Virgin Spy in more ways than one?

A mild series beginning with some potential. However, it requires a great suspension of belief that an otherwise intelligent, witty, and capable female character could cling to such an obvious lie and deception throughout the novel or that more experienced spies could not discern true allegiances. Interesting side characters add to the fun but, all in all it is a rather light romance with little real espionage taking place. Narrator carries the story and keeps it somewhat interesting. Although I did listen to the last three hours at 1.25x speed.

So far this seems like it’s going to be good

I like the narrator. The storyline is intriguing, suspenseful and believable. Sometimes the narrator mixes up the voice for the character but it’s smooth enough that it isn’t a distraction.
