OrangeReviewStarIndependent Lady Emily Radstock is happily on the shelf at almost 29 and angered by her mother's unsubtle gift of The Husband Hunter's Guide to London. She brashly complains to her sister that she should get the whole marriage thing out of the way and tie herself to the first brainless, idle imbecile she comes across and is dumbfounded when Sir Ajax Lynley overhears her tirade and accepts her unintended proposal. His resolve puzzles Emily, but for Ajax, a newly minted government spy who needs immediate access to society, an engagement to an earl's daughter is a perfect cover. He just needs to keep Emily in the dark and safe from the violence he knows will come. Emily is determined to figure out what's going on and keep from falling for him in the process.
VERDICT Rife with witty repartee, adventure, and sweet devotion, this flawlessly written tale demonstrates Moore's impeccable understanding of the Regency period, attention to detail, and uncanny ability to make readers part of the era. Moore (A Lady's Guide to Passion and Property) lives in Mill Valley, CA.
