  • Spies and Steam, oh my!

    I'm so glad I pick this arc up.  It was a good blend of suspense and romance. And the steamy scene were quite steamy. The last twenty-five per cent was hard to put down. It's my first from this author and it was most definitely my cup of tea.  I'm looking forward to diving into her backlist. Miss Jane Quayle is living under quite a few secrets. She writes gothic novels under a pen name and is posing as a widow who works for the author. All steps to protect herself while living at Dunnock Castle. Now she's received a letter threatening the mysterious author Thomas Sutherland has been abroad working as a spy for the British army now he's back in the Scottish highlands because of an inheritance that now makes him an earl of Magnus and Dunnock Castle is his official residence currently occupied by the woman he wooed before receiving his commission.  Thomas is surprised to see the woman whose very memory has haunted him for the last seven years. ARC provided Kensington/Lyrical via NetGalley

  • Does he know that she knows his secret?

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. Who’s That Earl by Susanna Craig is the first book in her exciting new series Love and Let Spy. When Lieutenant Thomas Sutherland is called home after seven years, from his mission in the West Indies, he’s not at all happy to find out he’s inherited the title of the Earl of Magnus. He plans to check out his inheritance at Dunnock Castle, ensure that things are being handled properly and get back to the business of gathering intelligence. Jane Quayle has been on her own for seven years, when her mother discovered a novel she was writing her father, tossed it in the fire and banished her. She’s made a successful career writing gothic novels under the pseudonym Robin Ratliff and to keep her identity hidden, she goes by the name of Mrs. Higginbotham, a widow who acts as the reclusive author’s amanuensis or secretary. When Thomas arrives at the castle, he’s shocked to find that the lovely young woman he was planning to propose to before receiving his orders is his tenant at the castle, because when he attempted to get her father’s permission to wed her father said he didn’t have a daughter, so Thomas had no way of finding her before leaving on his mission. Keeping his identity as Lord Magnus under wraps, he tells Jane that he’s there to investigate the death threats Robin Ratliff has been receiving, which of course, Jane immediately knows is not true, but she decides to go along with this fiction because the threats are quite concerning. This is a lovely second chance at love story with both mystery and adventure that I enjoyed very much. Medium Steam.

  • Historical Fiction - 2nd chance romance

    Who’s That Earl by Susanna Craig Love and Let Spy #1 From the West Indies where Lieutenant Thomas Sutherland hid his spying as a rummy beach bum to England then sent on by his commander to take up his new post as the Earl of Magnus he is not sure what to think or whether he will remain the earl or head back to spying. That said, seeing the woman he fell hard for seven years before does make him think it is worth staying awhile at the castle. That she might be in danger calls to his need to protect. The two still feel a spark but can they get it right this time? What I liked: * Thomas: a good soldier, spy, and man – he knows he wants Jane but isn’t one to push or order and lets her realize she wants him, too. * Jane: a woman w ho was treated badly by her family – I liked her ability to make a life for herself under difficult circumstances * The supporting characters in the village – would like to know more about some of them. * General Zebediah Scott – a great commander with an interest in matchmaking * Aphrodite and Athena: two dogs that deserved to be happy, too. * The second chance for Thomas and Jane – though I didn’t really feel their connection as much as I would have liked to. * The comeuppance of Jane’s father * Knowing that there will be another match made by General Scott in book two of the series What I did not like: * Jane’s parents – especially her father * The person sending threatening letters Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more in this series? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington-Lyrical Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

  • A good combination of mystery and romance

    This is book 1 in the Love and Let Spy series, where a matchmaking spymaster brings together couples whose romances were interrupted by the Napoleonic Wars. The book has a complex plot that is extremely well done, and it was a joy to see all the ins and outs revealed. The one niggle I had was that it wasn't clear exactly how Jane and Thomas ended up in the same place, but I suspect the spymaster had a hand in that. Thomas Sutherland had been stationed for seven years in Dominica, watching for French ships. Seven years before, he had met Miss Jane Quayle and had fallen hard for her. He was unable to speak to her before he shipped out. Jane, unknown to him, had also suffered a sudden and severe dislocation in her life just before he left England. Thomas receives an unexpected inheritance, and is released from his military service in Dominica. When he travels to see the property he has inherited, who does he find in residence but Jane, now the widowed Mrs. Higginbotham. She is acting as a transcriptionist for the famous and reclusive author of gothic romance, Robin Rattliff. Only, the Thomas Sutherland who presents himself is hiding a big part of his identity, and Jane has plenty of secrets of her own. And someone is sending threatening letters to the famous author .... I very much enjoyed reading this book and seeing all of these various mysteries resolved. The last part of the book has the spymaster contemplating the future of another of his spies .... I am looking forward to that book also. I received an advance reading copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. These are my opinions of the book.

  • Just cute

    This is a cute story - a much more traditional historical romance than the cover suggests, I think. It’s still fairly steamy, so not traditional in the “clean” sense, but the cover suggests something funky and different. It’s all second-chance romance (a favorite trope of mine), but not so much mystery, though the heroine writes gothic novels. It’s a nice introduction to a new-to-me writer, and I look forward to the next in the series. I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
