About The Book:
In England’s Regency era, manners and elegance reign in public life—but behind closed doors treason and tawdriness thrive. Nicholas Langdon is no stranger to reserved civility or bloody barbarity. After suffering a battlefield injury, the wealthy, well-connected British officer returns home to heal—and to fulfill a dying soldier’s last wish by delivering his coded diary.
At the home of the Wilherns, one of England’s most powerful families, Langdon attends a lavish ball where he meets their beautiful and intelligent ward, Julia Grey. Determined to maintain propriety, he keeps his distance—until the diary is stolen and all clues lead to Julia’s guardian. As Langdon traces an evil plot that could be the nation’s undoing, he grows ever more intrigued by the lovely young woman. And when Julia realizes that England—and the man she is falling in love with—need her help, she finds herself caught in the fray. Will the two succumb to their attraction while fighting to save their country?
I have to admit, it took me a while to get into this book. But once I got past the beginning it was really good! As you can tell by the title they are spying. Let me tell you, it gets intense at parts! And Nicholas was smart! How he conducted his search and the little things he'd do. It was so nice to find a character that used their brain, ya know? Julia was very selfless and put others before herself, she was very sweet and I loved meeting her friends as well. I can't wait to read the next book!

Didn't God see inside a person's heart and judge them for their thoughts and motives? God's ways were not man's ways.... God's requirements were completely different.
