Her name is Bonde, Jane Bonde…
A beautiful and eligible member of the ton, Jane has more than a few secrets: she’s one of the Crown’s most elite agents. She may be deadly, but she doesn’t know a thing about fashion, flirtation, or love…until Dominic Griffyn shakes up her carefully stirred world and asks her to be his bride. He’s exactly the kind of man she’s not looking for. And he’s dangerous, because falling into his arms is so much more satisfying than saving England from her enemies.
He’s an improper gentleman who needs a wife…
Tall, dark, and tortured, Dominic Griffyn is haunted by demons from his past. When his stepfather insists that he marry, Dominic allows himself to hope that the beautiful but mysterious Miss Bonde might help him forget his troubles. As they grow closer, it’s clear that there’s more to Jane than danger. She might be just what his neglected heart needs.
Praise for Lord and Lady Spy:
“Lively, utterly delightful adventure romance.” —RT Book Reviews, 4 stars
Though the setup is implausible, Galen provides plenty of explosiveness, both literal and erotic, in a Regency-era romantic thriller packed with intrigue and lust. Bonde, Jane Bonde, lead spy for Britain's elite Barbican Group, wants to focus on stopping the French assassin Fonc , but her boss and uncle, Lord Melbourne, thinks she needs to marry to provide cover for her travels. His choice for her spouse, Dominic Griffyn, would rather tend his horses than confront the demons of his past. He has no interest in either pursuing intimacy or submitting to his mother's schemes, until he and Jane discover how much they enjoy each other's company. The overall feeling is adventurous fun, but Galen's story is surprisingly modern despite the 1816 London setting: the married secret agents from Lord and Lady Spy model successful work-life balance, and Griffyn's self-protective response to a history of abuse feels emotionally authentic. Series fans will be eager to see what comes next.

This romance had it a all! Great plot, characters, action and wonderful romance!
Hero and heroine had some incredible chemistry and wonderful dialogue. Loved their romance from start to finish. The angst was done well. But loved how these two communicated their feelings and where so open and honest with each other. What a perfect romance!!!
