Ethan deBeau, Lord Danforth is a spy for a secret organisation called “Nexus” which was created to protect Britain from Napoleon. Ethan’s contributions tend less to the battlefields and more to seducing women connected with powerful men. A relatively simple operation of finding a boy in an orphanage becomes complex when Ethan butts heads with Sydney Hunt, full-time owner of a domestic services agency and part-time spy. Neither are aware of the secret roles the other person plays which leads to a variety of humorous and dangerous situations.

I decided to check this out after I read Devlyn’s A Lady’s Secret Weapon as an ARC. I enjoyed some aspects of the novel but the villain and portions of the plot were too over-the-top. Cora is a spy for Nexus, a British organisation charged with preventing Napoleon from breaching England’s shores. Her mission was to seduce information out of French spy Valere. One false move revealed her true identity. Cora was tortured until two Nexus agents rescued her. Valere isn’t willing to let her go so easily.
