Review tour + Giveaway: "My lady, my spy" by Sheridan Jeane

Author: Sheridan Jeane
Book 4 in series Secrets and seduction
Main characters: Frederick Woolsey and Josephine Harrington


He’s a spy— Certain truths aren’t his to share…

London, 1854 ~ Frederick Woolsy is Queen Victoria’s finest spy. His mission at the Russian Embassy’s annual ball is one of the most critical ones of his life, but his careful plans end in disaster. The book he was assigned to secure has been stolen and now England and Russia are on the brink of war. Even worse, the love of his life has caught him in another lie (he’s a spy, certain lies are expected). However, in this case, it might mean he’ll lose her forever.

She’s a lady who demands honesty– above all else

The nights Lady Josephine Harrington spent with Frederick in her bed were glorious… enough to tempt her to consider abandoning her independence as a wealthy widow to spend her life with him. Tonight, he canceled their plans to attend the Russian Embassy’s ball, saying he would be otherwise engaged. Now he’s shown up at the event with his brother. She’s not sure what he’s up to, but she’s going to find out…if she doesn’t eviscerate him first.

Secrets and lies…

He lives in a world of shadows. She values truth and integrity. If they want to find a future together, something has to change. Fast.

I read the ARC of this historical romance full of adventure in a day and I really enjoyed it :) although to be honest, I think I would enjoy it even more if I have read the previous books before this one ;) because there were moments when I could tell, that I was missing some informations ;) but don't worry, this book can work as a standalone as well, but it's very tightly connected to the previous one and may include some spoilers about the outcome of it, so beware... you've been warned ;) but for now, let us concentrate on this story :)

Josephine is a widow, who was slowly but relentlessly seduced by Frederick for quite some time, until she finally succumbed to his charms ;) but all of that actually happened before this book evan began... I am assuming that you can read about it in previous books, because I would love to see that :) and this story is sort of a second half of their relationship :) becasue after those few very memorable nights, Frederick starts to avoid her... he's actualy a spy, working for the Queen... :) dun dun duuuunnnn ;) sounds exciting, right? :) but that's beside the point ;) she detest lies and being lied to, so when she catches him doing just that one too many time... well, you can imagine how mad she is :) and rightfully so, I have to add :) not to mention, that from the very beginning of this book we are thrown in the middle of action, so there are a lot of things going on besides just the romance part :) but I do have to say, that I loved the mature way they actually handled it at the end... :) don't worry, no more details from me, so you won't be spoiled ;)

Like I mentioned before, the action starts from the very first chapter, because there is a book that a lot of people want, for very different reasons, and they are pretty determined to get it :) so there is a lot going on ;) besides our main couple, we have a bunch of characters that already got their own stories before and some with potential for future stories :) I am trying really hard to tell you stuff without actually spoiling you the details, so I'm sorry for being vague :) it's definitely on purpose :) this review will be a bit shorter than usual for that very reasons :) so instead of concentrating on the things I can't share with you, let me tell you a bit more about my overall impressions :)

I really enjoyed this book :) yes, it would probably be better if I read at least the previous story, before starting this one, if not the whole series ;) becasue there were moments when some events were happening and some characters were mentioned... and I am sooo very curious about them all :) but since the writing style was really good, I am definitely gonna go back to this series :) it was a very quick and entertaining read :) the unexpected turns of events definitely kept me glued to the pages, and even though I would love to read more about the romance between Josephine and Frederick, I liked what I saw about them in this story :) even though there were moments when I wanted to smack them, the majority of the time they actually acted like adults ;) so if you are looking for a historical romance with adventure, be sure to give this series a try ;)
