    Historical Romance At Its Best!

    GREAT introduction to the new “Covert Heiresses” series! Erica Monroe is going onto my list of “must read” authors after having read this book! I know she is a prolific writer but so far have only read a few of her books and each one has been an absolutely wonderful well written story! What a GREAT introduction to the new “Covert Heiresses” series! The Spencer family has been involved in secretly keeping their country safe for over a century. James and his sisters put country before anything else. Vivian Loren grew up in the home of a Viscount but was turned out with her brother when her cousin came into the title. When her brother was murdered she went into service as governess for the youngest son of the Spencer family and her life has been quiet and rewarding but also stressful due to the reason she is actually working there. Both Vivian and James have lost siblings and begin to bond after discussing their losses one evening. There is an ease and companionship between them but also chemistry waiting to be explored. Vivian needs protection and James has offered his to her. Little does she know that there is more under his expensive clothes and pleasant demeanor than a the wealthy Duke he appears to be. I loved Vivian’s strength of will, clarity of mind and determination. I loved James for his ability to realize his strengths and weaknesses as well as sensitive and tender side. Both characters were well written and the growth of their relationship was a joy to read about as it unfolded. A number of characters were introduced in this book that will no doubt have stories in this series later and I look forward to reading each and every one of them! Thank you to NetGalley and Quillfire Publishing for the copy of this book to read and review.

    Another wonderful book by Erica Monroe

    What a way to launch a new series! Erica Monroe’s I SPY A DUKE is the brilliant first instalment in Erica Monroe’s The Covert Heiresses series. The author crafts a world very different from her famous Rookery Rogues series, but just as captivating and suspenseful. The characters, whether James and Vivian, or the secondary players are simply wonderful. Vivian and James are a perfectly matched couple, they have great chemistry, and the romance is simply to die for. The issues they have are handled masterfully by Ms. Monroe; the story is very solid, and the numerous plot twists never convoluted. As expected, I SPY A DUKE is thoroughly researched, and the story is rich in period details, and the dialogues are witty and sound totally natural. Ms. Monroe is a splendid writer, and she is getting even better! What a fabulous series this is going to be! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I Spy a Great Read!

    The start to her new series The Covert Heiresses, I Spy a Duke, launches Erica Monroe to the forefront of the historical romance suspense genre! This author's work keeps getting better, and that is no mean feat based on the quality of her previous works. In her latest book she portrays her hero and heroine as kindred spirits drawn together by their common quest in coming to terms with their despair and grief over the loss of a sibling. Ms. Monroe relates her characters feelings so clearly and adeptly that every emotion she describes is carried through to her readers in a sympathetic connection via her words. A quick moving espionage subplot coupled with liberally peppered humor, introspection, kindness and simmering attraction adds to the momentum of this novel. Showcasing this author’s writing talent and marvelous imagination I Spy a Duke could easily be called I Spy a Great Read! *I received this ARC via Netgalley.*

    A Wonderful Story

    Erica Monroe does it again with her unique blend of intrigue, danger and romance! Bringing two people together on different missions, yet in the end on the same. Vivian Loren is grieving from the loss of her brother and is determined to revenge his death. Obtaining information that she needs to ingrain herself in the Spencer family's home to find out who killed her brother, she lands a job as a governess. James Spenser is who she is to spy on and as the days go by, she realizes he is not the brigand he is suppose to be. James, the Duke of Abermont is grieving the loss of his sister who died as the result as one of his missions. You see James is a spy and is working to find out information of his own. In the end the two begin working together and as Vivian comes into danger, James will do what he has to to protect her from harm. A definite page turner to find out what will happen and you become enthralled as the characters are masterfully developed. What a great story and cannot wait until more of this series comes out!!
