Cassie Fox and Grey Sommers meet when she is sent on a mission to France to find out if he is still alive...and does find it to be true.
What follows is an interesting tale of finding different things out about themselves and each other, about their friends - both old and new, and, of course, evading being captured as spies while crossing the French countryside.
No Longer a Gentleman is the fourth The Lost Lords books and a wonderful addition to the series. What I enjoyed about this book is what I enjoy about all of Ms. Putney's books: wonderful characters of - possibly - disparate backgrounds finding common ground, great storytelling, a nice sense of time period, and adventure.
Can't wait to read more!
Grey Sommers, Lord Wyndham, never met a predicament he couldn't charm his way out of. Then a tryst with a government official's wife during a bit of casual espionage in France condemns him to a decade in a dungeon, leaving him a shadow of his former self. Yet his greatest challenge may be the enigmatic spy sent to free his body--the only woman who might heal his soul.
Cassie Fox lost everything in the chaos of revolution, leaving only a determination to help destroy Napoleon's empire through her perilous calling. Rescuing Grey is merely one more mission. She hadn't counted on a man with the stark beauty of a ravaged angel, whose desperate courage and vulnerability thaw her frozen heart. But a spy and a lord are divided by an impassable gulf even if they manage to survive one last, terrifying mission. . ..
