Graham Wynchester stars in book three of Ridley’s LJ-best-booked Regency series. The intelligence-gatherer and acrobat leads his found family in their collective mission to help those in need. Kunigunde de Heusch is highly skilled herself and on a secret mission: surveil London in advance of a royal visit by her king. She hopes her exemplary work will allow her to become the first woman allowed in the royal guard. She does not need Graham’s help, but she does soon become enchanted by his inner and outer beauty and by the delightful Wynchester clan. Graham opens the family home and resources to Kunigunde and they train together, share their heartaches and hopes, and negotiate their needs and desires. To the delight of readers, siblings Elizabeth, Marjorie, and Jacob play larger roles in the story, setting up future titles in the series known for its swoony wit and charm, social commentary, and notable inclusivity (Graham, Kunigunde, and Jacob are Black; Elizabeth deals with chronic illness; and Marjorie has hearing loss).
VERDICT A strong title in an essential collection-building series. Ridley, who has a deft hand with dialogue and detail and crafts bookmark-it scenes and byplay, is fast becoming an auto-buy author and makes a good read-alike suggestion for fans of Lisa Kleypas, Grace Burrowes, and Elizabeth Hoyt.
