In this second installment of Tracey Devlyn's Nexus Spymasters series, readers will be immersed into this enemies to lovers story between an infamous spy and a desperate widow bent on solving her husband's murder and protecting her precocious daughter.
Welcome to Nexus Spymasters, a Regency historical romance series by USA Today Bestselling author Tracey Devlyn. From ballrooms to boudoirs, these daring lord and lady spies will stop at nothing to win the war against Napoleon and fight for the one thing forbidden to them. . . love.
She thought she had nothing left to lose but her honor. She was wrong.
When Catherine Ashcroft discovers a link between her late husband’s untimely death and her enigmatic, absentee neighbor, Lord Somerton, she searches for answers while helping the earl repair his crumbling estate. Only she’s not prepared for his patient acceptance of her horse-crazed daughter, nor the feelings his heated touches stir to life.
Sebastian Danvers keeps his cards close to his chest and people at arm’s length. As Britain’s top spymaster, his work depends on his ability to assess potential threats and make ruthless decisions. What he didn’t count on was fearless, passionate Catherine, a widow determined to find her husband’s killer, despite the danger her questions incite, and a woman he must protect at all costs—even if it means denying his own heart.
As Sebastian’s enemy closes in, the two must set aside their secrets and work together to protect Catherine’s daughter—and explore a love that could save them both.
First published in 2013 as Checkmate, My Lord. This remastered edition published in 2022.
