England is under threat from Napoleon, but it doesn’t affect those in high society, or does it?
Charles Baker, the young Baron Glazebrook has happily fallen under the spell of a man of dubious character. He is rampaging over London, enjoying everything that a young man with a fortune could wish for.
Clara Baker is compelled to try and protect her brother, no matter what the cost is to herself or her reputation. She made a promise to her dying mother and nothing is going to divert her from her mission.
Edmund Ainscough, Earl of Chertsey is a man with a reputation. His welcome in the seedier side of society makes him the perfect target for those in authority who want to know who is loyal to the King.
Three people thrown together find their worlds, values and feelings can all be changed in an instant. All will face their deepest fears in this novel of love and betrayal.

 

Here is what I thought

Clara is worried about her brother Charles because he has been hanging around with a man she thinks is up to no good. She followed Charles to a place of ill repute that was having a masquerade party. There she meets Edmund who was curious about her and when she confided in him about wanting to rescue her brother he tells her he will make sure he gets home okay.

Edmund works as a spy for the King and because he is an Earl he can spy on those of his own sect to see what is going on. He is after Joshua the man that Charles is hanging out with and so it just makes sense to get to know Clara in hopes of seeing what is going on with her brother and Joshua. He just didn’t plan on falling for Clara.

My Lord the Spy was a sweet romance and I really like the characters. Clara was spunky and didn’t care about her reputation, she was more worried about her brothers. She had promised her mother to look after him and didn’t seem to care what she had to do.

I must say I am not a huge fan of the cover as it just looks like a stuffy aristocratic picture and Edmund seem much more fun than that. 🙂

Recommend if you like

Clean historical romances as there is not much heat.

Author Bio

Audrey Harrison was born about two hundred years too late. She wants to belong to a time when men were men and women were dressed in gowns and could float, simper and sigh.

In the real world she has always longed to write, writing a full manuscript when she was fourteen years old. Work, marriage and children got in the way as they do and it was only when an event at work landed her in hospital that she decided to take stock. One Voluntary Redundancy later, she found that the words and characters came to the forefront and the writing began in earnest.

Her ideal would be to write Regency Romances, but more modern characters are insisting on being heard, hence the release of’ ‘A Very Modern Lord’, a contemporary romance.

So, although at home more these days, the housework is still neglected and tea is still late on the table, but she has an understanding family, who usually shake their heads at her and sigh. That is a sign of understanding, isn’t it?

The Narrator

This was my first time listening to Melanie Fraser and I thought she did a pretty good job with this novel. Easy to listen too.
