Rani writes in asking for help with a book she read 10 years ago, or thereabouts:
It has been driving me crazy not being able to recall this book. Please, please post this to your readers so I can finally get some relief.
Read it about 10 years ago and it’s stuck with me this whole time.
It’s 1800s. Girl somehow ends up in the spying business. She has a spymaster, who was the guy she ends up falling for. The thing that stood out was that they were in a location that I wasn’t used to in romance novels. Eastern Europe. Prussia? or Russia? Maybe Vienna? and not in England. I think she lost her father. Her father was the spymaster of her spymaster. That’s how she gets involved.
For some reason, I also remember the book having a purple cover. Very nondescript cover. No half naked pic of her instead like a glasses or something.
I remember this book being so interesting because it was one of the first spy romance novels I had ever read where the girl becomes the spy. Unlike the guy being the spy and just bringing the girl along.
If nothing else, can anyone else suggest some good historical romance spy novels? Something in the same vein as Joanna Bourne’s Spymaster’s Lady?
I admit: I love spy stories. I even tried to write a spy romance long, long ago before I started this site. Love them – so, anyone recognize this book, or have really standout spy romance to recommend?
