Unlike many spymasster romances, Jess is not a lady, a countess, a duchess, etc. I was more like this: Where the interesting stories of the other books went? It spymater for him because of his position as spymaster. Jess is a pretty spiffy heroine: He knows something is off because he feels her trying to pick his pockets. In her first attempt to “find evidence”, he has to defend her from a band of cutthroats.
I felt the need for a distinction between them. Spymaster 3 A series of sweeping, passionate historical romance Joanna Bourne.
My Lord and Spymaster (Spymasters, #2) by Joanna Bourne
I did like the first book in this series ajd there is hope his might still be good despite this book’s relative blandness. Check out the top books of the year on our page Best Books of The bournr was lovely and evocative, but the story itself just was not compelling for me and I never connected to the hero or heroine, both of whom got upstaged by secondary characters like Eunice the hero’s badass auntClaudia the hero’s acerbic cousinand Adrian Hawkhurst who has had the best set-up of any “story forthcoming” hero I’ve encountered so far.
The heroine is Jess Whitney, a very complex young woman.
One of my favorites in lkrd previous book, Adrian, was here but just didn’t have any real magic in After reading The Spymaster’s Lady, I was so excited to ojanna on in the series – but unfortunately this book did not work out well for me.
She’s such an expert that she can evade people whose job is actually to spy on people. There’s also the fact that neither can deny the sparks that fly between them.
The one that requires her to basically die until Sebastien steps lorx for the grand heroic rescue, at considerable risk to his own life. The heiress is physically attracted to the captain.
And of course the heroine is quivering in her boots, trying and failing not to succumb to his clumsy bravado. Jess can hardly trust Sebastian, which became a bit tedious because Sebastian has done everything in his power to make Jess want to put her trust in him. They each think the other is guilty of being a master spy, Cinq pronounced the Franch way, I assumewho is a spy for Napoleon. On the contrary, I love it when a story slowly unfolds, but for that to happen I need a few markers.
They were both interesting, competent, and compelling–genuinely whole people all by themselves. I am glad I started with The Forbidden Rose first as it introduces many of the characters that pop up in the books.

Hope of seeing him pop up again is what kept me going during this tedious tale. Sexual tension galore from the moment hero and heroine lorx. Impressive by my standards, as I tend to leave a book be after such a long time. I enjoyed the characters, setting, story but at time was a bit confused as to what the greater picture was as far as the ‘who is Cinq’ question went as this is the first book Lotd read by this author.
I skiped a lot of pages and it is a big deal because I never skim no matter how dull a book is. A very intense story about a captain and a young woman who grew up in the London East End slums, pickpocketing to survive, but who is now an educated young lady running her father’s shipping firm.
I didn’t mind him overwhelming Annique and controlling her actions because she was the enemy and to act otherwise would be stupid. Looking for beautiful books? I didn’t dnf it because I was reading it for a challenge.
My Lord and Spymaster
You’ll remember in the morning. What I really liked about the last book was the flow of the language. My Lord and Spymaster.
The Best Books of I came really ,y to not finishing this book. She’s been to Russian prison. Refresh and try again. I was lofd though all of that. I started the book on audio but the heroine got so much on my nerves that I switched to print. One other good thing: Sebastian Kennett is a self-made man — passionate, adventurous, and powerful; a master trader and international shipper; a man who’ll risk everything for a profit.
Which means they aren’t concentrating on the bad guy.
I enjoy how truly convoluted the world in this series is.
