“A Liar Under the Mistletoe” by Celeste Bradley

Thief and spy can’t resist each other in this sexy, catch-me-if-you-can Liar’s Club holiday novella.
To win a lord, you can’t be a lady…
Darcy Blake, Earl of Chase, is a soldier, rogue, and a loyal King's man. Commanded to spy on the luscious actress Amelia Fox, Darcy must pretend to be her student for a court theatrical. He is certain he can school her in the art of seduction while discovering if she is a traitor. But to his shock, he finds Mrs. Fox teaching him an entirely different kind of lesson.
As London's most popular actress, Amelia is famous at court, and she doesn't have a husband to tell her what do. Unfortunately, the king has ordered her to train the rakehell, Lord Chase to act for the court. Before long, the Earl is driving her wild with desire and awakening her heart to love. As an actress, society dictates she can never be more than Lord Chase's mistress, and Amelia has vowed never to be less than a lady.
When Darcy learns the witty actress is indeed linked to a traitor, he'll have to decide if love or loyalty will rule the day.
