I wanted to like this one more than I did. And maybe if I re-read it, I would like it more. The problem? Too many characters. It's a Regency romantic suspense. I LOVE this sub-sub-genre. Makes me think of The Scarlet Pimpernel. But Regencies have the problem of people having too many names: John Whosit, Earl of Thisplace. He can be referred to as John, as Lord Thisplace, as the Earl, as my lord, and if he's recently come into the title, his old friends may still refer to him as John Whosit or just Whosit, and heaven help us if he has a nickname, or if he goes by a middle name. It's confusing as it is, but when you combine this with an overabundance of characters, it turns an enjoyable story into something you have to study. And in this one, we have spies, so there are code names as well. HELP! Other than that, though, it was really a good spy story. The heroine's a double agent, and the hero's trying to prove she's a French spy while she tries to stay incognito and find the real traitor. ( )
