The Naked Truth . . .
Alistair, Viscount Moncreiffe, must confess: He is thoroughly bored with the proper ladies of the ton. The rogue longs for an adventurous beauty who will make his world more . . . interesting. So Alistair is delighted when fiery, fearless Charlotte Parnell literally drops into his arms—and he's quick to tender a marriage proposal when they are discovered in this scandalous position.
Better a Spy Than a Bride . . .
Charlotte wishes to continue spying for the Crown alongside her brother, who thinks she should marry instead. Now she's determined to solve a most important and dangerous case before he does. But a misstep on a London rooftop has landed her in Viscount Moncreiffe's embrace—and she is intrigued by the handsome rake's offer of matrimony. With a fiancé by her side, she'll arouse fewer suspicions—and she'll end the engagement once her mission is completed. But will Alistair's disarming passion inspire Charlotte to uncover the most astonishing secret of all: the love hidden deep in her heart?
Worth a Look
I discovered Shirley Karr quite by accident and immediately went back and bought all three of her novels available to date. Likeable characters and an engaging plot make this book very readable. You will enjoy meeting Charlotte as she drops from a window into a life changing pair of arms. Wanting to have the freedom to work as a spy without her brother's intervention, life becomes even more complicated when her exit from a building is intercepted by a man who has his own reasons for not wanting Charlotte to continue in her profession.
