Once I got into this book I couldn’t put it down. Lilias is a formidable person and you do not want to get on her bad side. Some soldiers met the end of her sword in battle when her husband, she will later find out, was murdered by assassins that call themselves the Death Adders. She caught Angel’s attention that day and two years later when they meet in a ballroom. From the time they set eyes on each other, the dance goes on to include, being kidnapped, having her world torn apart because her husband was not who she thought he was, a marriage proposal from her brother-in-law, being attacked in her bedroom, being stabbed and shot at, and Angel’s body riddled with poison. Let’s not forget the amazing sex in between them.
I really enjoyed reading In Bed with a Spy and found it fascinating. Historical books very rarely catch my attention but when they do they are usually good. This one was no different.
Being attracted and wanting to spend your life with a spy has its advantages and dangers as well. The author did a really good job keeping the identity of the Death Adder who was watching her throughout the book a secret until the very end. I kind of suspected who it was but it was nice to have confirmation.
Revenge has never been so seductive.
When her husband is killed at Waterloo, Lilias Fairchild takes up his cavalry sword and boldly storms the front, earning herself the nickname Angel of Vengeance. But there is another angel on the battlefield who is just as single-minded, and just as ruthless?
Alastair Whitmore, the Marquess of Angelstone, is a British spy. Code name: Angel. Still haunted by a first love felled by assassins, his mission draws him to Waterloo, where he is captivated by a beautiful and mysterious woman fighting amongst the men?a woman who becomes his most intoxicating memory of war.
Passion has never been so dangerous.
Two years later, Lilias and Angelstone lock eyes in a crowded ballroom and the memory returns in an exhilarating rush. The history they share, and hide from the world, is as impossible to ignore as the heat of their attraction. But it’s that very connection that spells doom for their scandalous affair. When someone from the shadows of their past proves a dire threat to their lives, passion might not be enough to save them.
