  • So much fun and best of the series

    This book was soooo much fun! None of the tropes used here are original (secret lady avenger, fake marriage, secret spy, etc.), but they were all used together in a way that felt totally fresh. And the main characters were just so darn likable, I fell in love with both of them as they fell in love with each other. As this is the third book of the series, there is an overarching mystery, but I feel that Better Off Wed can very easily be read as a stand-alone. It should simply be read because it’s the best book of the series, hands down. I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Bk 3 Love and Let Spy Series

    This is the 3rd book in the Love and Let Spy series. This is the story of Laura Hopkins, aka Lady Sterling, thief taker and Captain Jeremy Addison,aka Lord Sterling. Laura has dedicated her life to helping those women who have been abused by the Lord's of the manor. She goes undercover and takes something of value from them to help support these women. Then she also tries to find out something in their life that she can use as blackmail to prevent them from destroying anyone else's life. Jeremy Addison is a Captain , a spy who works in the coding division. He is given an assignment in the field. His assignment is to find out who the identity of Lady Sterling is. When Captain Addison and Lady Sterlings paths cross and their assignments coincide, they decide to work together. This leads to many adventures and the bonding of the two together. I enjoyed the independent spirit of Laura and that she was willing to help those in distress. I loved that Jeremy was so supportive of her 5 stars. I want to thank netgalley for the opportunity to review this book.

  • Nice addition to series

    Better Off Wed by Susanna Craig Love & Let Spy # 3 Sterling is a word that has meaning and thus, LADY STERLING chose her name…she is not really Robin Hood but one who does work for women in need of a little something extra after they have been exploited in and abused the homes that employed them. Lady Sterling, really Miss Laura Hopkins, has ties via her brother to the government’s spy-force. (I do hope her brother will show up in the future in his own book.) Anyway, this book takes on from the past book in the series in which a book was acquired that has information the government wants/needs but who can decipher the code? Step in Jeremy Addison, Viscount Sterling, with his own backstory and why did he step in? His boss pushed him forcefully forward and he was suddenly center stage and dealing with…his wife? The woman he was sent to find information on? Anyway…this is an interesting story with reference to plays that may or may not have existed in real life, characters that were possibly real, and a series that did make them real. Their matchmaker was a man high up in the government spycrafting information gathering echelons and their story…interesting if not riveting though well worth reading. Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read another book in this series? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington – Lyrical Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars

  • Charming spy romance!

    Better off Wed is the 3rd book in Susanna Craig's Napoleonic-period Love and Let Spy series. I didn't read the first two books - though I'm pleased to discover that I have them - but this story totally stood alone. What I think were references to previous books in no way confused my understanding here. I love historical romance stories with military men, so this one was right up my alley! Miss Laura Hopkins lives quite the unusual secret life for a woman in 1808 England. Under the alias Lady Sterling, she helps young woman who have been compromised or treated indecently by their employers. Though some see her actions as stealing or blackmail, she uses the proceeds of what she takes from these evil men to help the woman they abused. On the way to assist the governess of the vile Lord Thornton, Laura hurts her ankle in a carriage accident and is helped by a handsome young man...a man named Lord Sterling. What are the chances?! Captain Jeremy Addison, Viscount Sterling, is a codebreaker for the Crown. His commanding officer has ordered him to discover the identity of Lady Sterling to perhaps put her to work. When they are invited to stay for Laura to recover at the home of her intended target Lord Thornton, Laura and Jeremy must pretend to be newlyweds so they can discover the man's secrets. Can two secretive people learn to trust - and love - each other? This was a hugely entertaining story with absolutely charming leads in Laura and Jeremy. Laura often put herself in danger trying to avenge the young women who were hurt by men with money and prestige and almost always got away with their sins. She was very successful in her endeavors, and her Lady Sterling calling card struck terror in the hearts of bad men. Jeremy, as a codebreaker, usually spent his time working on codes in his dank little office, but his commanding officer seemed to find it amusing to send Jeremy, Lord Sterling, to find and collect Lady Sterling. Actual spying wasn't his usual forte', but he turned out to be well adept at it. The chemistry between our hero and heroine was electric, even before they did not trust each other. They worked really well together, however. Also, when sparks began to fly, the results were incendiary! Carriage rides never seemed quite so steamy. I enjoyed the fact that Jeremy, a very kind and seemingly quite innocent young man, had secrets of his own that I did not discern until almost the end of the book. The Epilogue was lovely and touching. I look forward to reading many more books by this author. I received an ARC of this book courtesy of the publisher and NetGalley. I received no compensation for my review, and all thoughts and opinions expressed are entirely my own.

  • Just too insulting to the reader's intelligence

    This book has so many holes where people just figured things out without any problem at all. An intelligence officer who works on decoding codes is sent to investigate a woman calling herself Lady Sterling who robs men who have treated women badly and then gives the money to the victims. Our hero actually is Lord Sterling. He figures out right away who the woman is, finds her, and then without any consultation at all besides some significant looks, they decide to pretend they’re married. They’re investigating the evil earl who not only sexually harasses his female servants but is also, apparently, in charge of codes to send information to the French. We are never told what sort of information he has access to or why the French use him to send all their messages. None of it makes much sense, but hey, we can have a pretend couple who have to share a bed and will fall in love over a week together. Sure. I didn’t buy much of any of it. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book that I received from Netgalley; however, the opinions are my own and I did not receive any compensation for my review.
