RT Rating

Layton unites an innocent and brave young woman and a war-weary English spy in this endearing romance. She mixes in some humor, intrigue, spies, loyalty and, above all, trust. The result is a winning novel.

As an agent for England, Simon Atwood, Lord Granger, was
captured and spent almost a year in a French prison. Now back in England,
all he wants is peace of mind and to put his memories of war and confinement to rest. As a favor for friend and fellow agent Viscount Delancy, Simon agrees
to find out what is going on between Delancy's brother and Lady Harwood. The person who can help in his investigation is Jane Chatham, a dance teacher in Lady Harwood's employ.

As they work together Jane senses
a sadness and loneliness in Simon, who finds her to be a spirited companion. Simon discovers that there's something more going on at Lady Harwood's salon, but he doesn't want to believe who's behind it. As a result, Simon underestimates his enemy -- and the danger to himself and Jane. (AVON, Jun., 384 pp, $5.99)
