The Gentleman Spy by Erica Vetsch

Welcome to the blog tour for The Gentleman Spy by Erica Vetsch!

About The Book

He only wanted a duchess for a day–but she’s determined to make it a marriage for life.
When his father and older brother suddenly pass away, the new Duke of Haverly is saddled with a title he never expected to bear. To thwart the plans of his scheming family, the duke impulsively marries a wallflower. After all, she’s meek and mild; it should be easy to sequester her in the country and get on with his life–as a secret agent for the Crown.
But his bride has other ideas. She’s determined to take her place not only as his duchess but as his wife. As a duchess, she can use her position to help the lowest of society–the women forced into prostitution because they have no skills or hope. Her endeavors are not met favorably in society, nor by her husband who wishes she’d remain in the background as he ordered.
Can the duke succeed in relegating her to the sidelines of his life? When his secrets are threatened with exposure, will his new wife be an asset or a liability?

My Thoughts

After greatly enjoying the first book in this series, I was very excited to read the second installment. I loved the characters in this book! Charlotte has a kind heart and gumption that allows her to stand up for those less fortunate as she adapts to a strange situation.  Marcus, too, is down-to-earth despite his lofty status and is easy to like.  I enjoyed their interactions as their relationship grew throughout the story.  There are also some loveable secondary characters!  I also really liked the mystery aspect to this book and the surprising twists and turns in the plot.  I love regency romance novels and this story delivered with descriptions of balls, gowns, and society. I do recommend reading this series in order, but the first one is also a great novel.  I am eagerly awaiting the next novel!  I highly recommend this series!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through Audra Jennings PR. Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
