THE SPY(Book 3)
Who is the spy?
James Cunnington has a pressing mission at hand: He must find the daughter of a missing code breaker for the Liar's Club, a man suspected of turning traitor for Napoleon. Time is of the utmost concern. While it is evident that his ward's new tutor has something to hide, James is unaware that the woman he seeks now resides under his very roof....
Desperate and destitute, Phillipa Atwater must don gentlemen's clothing to pass herself off as the scholarly young tutor. Her clever--if itchy--disguise allows her time to pursue her quest to find her father, ruthlessly abducted by French spies. Closely guarding the cryptic notebook he entrusted to her care, she senses danger all around her--even in the home of her roguishly handsome new employer, James Cunnington. Now Phillipa is about to discover that desire can be as lethal as a well-aimed bullet...
"Bradley pulls us into the wonderful world of the Liar's Club and gives us a nonstop read brimming with puzzle after puzzle."
—Romantic Times Magazine
"Wonderfully witty writing, superbly matched protagonists and an intrigue-steeped plot."
Under the covers:
"I love cross-dressing heroine stories. The idea of getting to know a man as another man, to learn all his disgusting habits and unconscious heroism before he ever tries to impress the lady--it's a secret, vicarious thrill, kind of like spying on the boys' locker room. And yes, I take Phillipa into the Regency version of the locker room. I couldn't help it. To make a well-bred young lady face a smelly room full of 'hairy arses'? I was giggling about that one for a week. The Spy is also the only book I have done so far that features a child as a major character. No lisping angels here! I love kids, but nothing turns me off more than perfectly behaved children. They always give me the willy shivers. Robbie is a tough, grimy little house-ape who presents Phillipa with a real challenge!"
