Can the mind forget what the eyes have seen?

L’araignee, the Spider, is England’s most notorious spy–and Lady Rebecca Wentworth’s alter ego. After her partner in espionage is killed in the line of duty, Rebecca returns to London, only to discover a traitor has compromised the war effort from the highest levels of the vaunted Counterintelligence Corps. To lure the villain into the open, Rebecca embarks on a new mission, acting as prey for a dangerous enemy. But it is the handsome former Navy captain tasked with her safety that presents the greatest threat, when she falls in love.

When Nautionnier Knight Dirk Randolph is sent to evacuate spies from the Continent, he is shocked to discover a beautiful noblewoman in service to the Crown. A no-nonsense man accustomed to a ruthlessly ordered life, his world is upended when he is paired with the intriguing operative and must act the part of smitten suitor. While he protects L’araignee, he does not guard his heart. But can he accept that his ladylove and the spy exist as two sides of the same coin?

Bambi's Review:

Oh this book is great the humor spy and intrigue keep me hooked from beginning to end.

This book starts off with or spy caught in a flight to be rescued. Her friend and protected dead, and the enemy fast on her heels. How can the mysterious L'araignee (the spider) escape and get home to England?

Ship captain Dirk Randolph Viscount Wainsbrough waits for the signal to rescue his friend and Brethren brother,Collin and his mystery partner. When only one small figure steps aboard he know what has happened. When he step close to his countryman he see's the sad velvety brown eyes.

Lady Rebecca Wentworth (Lord Calvert sister) was now headed home into unknown people were after her and she had to find the spy that was giving out information to the french. Once reaching the Ministry of Defense a plan is form to catch the spy and keep Rebecca safe.

With Dirk her protector and the Brethren keeping eye's on every the Session in London she never had is about to happen.

Dirk the most Virtuous of the group and ethical beyond reason how will he handle having this beautiful spy in his life? Every time he goes near her he says and does the wrong things but that what happens when "His Jolly Roger had taken on a life of it's own."

In this game of hearts spies life and death how will they make it?
Will Dirk and his brethren be able to keep Rebecca safe?

Will Rebecca decide that Dirk is worth giving up being a spy or will duty to the Corps and Crown get the better of them?

This is a awesome book and I can not wait to read the next in this wonderful series i am just sad at my self it took me so long to get to reading.

Bestselling author Barbara Devlin was born a storyteller. A Texan, through and through, Barbara hasn't been without a book in her possession since she was in kindergarten. She wrote her first short story, a really cheesy murder-mystery, in high school, but it was a Christmas gift, a lovely little diary with a bronze lock, given to her in the fifth grade that truly inspired her love for writing.
After completing part of her undergraduate studies at the University of London, where she developed a love of all things British, Barbara returned home and began a career in banking. But the late 80s weren't too promising for the financial industry, and every bank that hired Barbara soon folded. So she searched for a stable occupation, and the local police department offered the answer to her prayers.
Initially, Barbara wasn't too sure about her new career in law enforcement, but she soon came to love being a police officer. And then one uncharacteristically cold and icy day in December 1998, Barbara was struck by a car and pinned against a guardrail while working an accident on a major highway. Permanently disabled, she retired from the police department and devoted her time and energy to physical therapy.
Once Barbara got back on her feet, she focused on a new career in academia. She earned an MA in English and continued a course of study for a Doctorate in Literature and Rhetoric. She happily considers herself an exceedingly eccentric English professor. Barbara also began writing historical fiction in her spare time and completed five full-length novels featuring her fictional knighthood, the Brethren of the Coast.
