Book Description

Book Two in the Brethren of the Coast series.

Can the mind forget what the eyes have seen?

L’araignee, The Spider, is England’s most notorious spy--and Lady Rebecca Wentworth’s alter ego. After her partner in espionage is killed in the line of duty, Rebecca returns to London, only to discover a traitor has compromised the war effort from the highest levels of the vaunted Counterintelligence Corps. To lure the villain into the open, Rebecca embarks on a new mission, acting as prey for a dangerous enemy. But it is the handsome former Navy captain tasked with her safety that presents the greatest threat, when she falls in love. Can Rebecca trade her cloak of office for an ermine-collared pelisse, her trusty dagger for opera glasses, and shed the underworld of espionage to claim the future she desperately desires?

When Nautionnier Knight Dirk Randolph is sent to evacuate spies from the Continent, he is shocked to find a beautiful noblewoman in service to the Crown. A no-nonsense man accustomed to a ruthlessly ordered life, his world is upended when he is paired with the intriguing operative and must act the part of smitten suitor. While he protects the fascinating agent provocateur, he does not guard his heart. But can he accept that his ladylove and the spy exist as two sides of the same coin?


Editorial Reviews

Review

***Rebecca is a spy for the British government during the Napoleonic wars, who becomes entangled, first professionally, later personally, with a member of the British nobility. Dirk is an inhibited, duty-bound, traditional, stiff-upper-lip aristocrat who is attracted first by Rebecca's beauty and later by winsome personality. My Lady, The Spy is a perfect light romance. It is sexy and funny and, in addition, the story is entertaining, a feature that romances often lack. I highly recommend this book! 5-Stars -David Burnett for The Kindle Book Review
***I love good, strong female characters, and a female spy in an early nineteenth century setting was one that I loved. And the great way that Devlin has with "familiar banter" is there in full force with this book, especially with her wonderfully drawn female characters who are both epitomes of and contrasts to your usual images of women of their day and place. There is a message of acceptance to this story: accepting yourself, and accepting those you love, without condition. The Jolly Roger and "God Save the King" stuff had me giggling every time. Go read the book! 5 Fireballs  -Boom Baby Reviews
***Devlin's book is well-written and the titillating pas de deux between Rebecca and Dirk will keep readers' eyes glued to the text. The plot is fast-paced and the dialogue, oftentimes, humorous, such that readers can't help but be engaged until the heart-wrenching climax near the end of the story. MY LADY, THE SPY offers history, romance, and mystery all wrapped up in an engrossing story that is filled with witty repartee and ribald scenes that border on debauchery. 4 Stars -Robin Carr for IndieReader

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!! December 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Devlin has done it again. I have a major book hangover. I didn’t want this story to end. Ever. Every book I read from Devlin, I declare it my “favorite” book. Since each book has different themes, it’s hard to pick only one favorite. However, I believe this is my favorite in the series thus far. The tone is suspenseful throughout which I completely love (I love a good mystery and this book does not disappoint). Devlin’s trademark humor is alive and well in this book as well and I’m glad since I did not want it to be such a serious read. I love all the characters in this series and Rebecca and Dirk are no exceptions. Dirk is completely ‘by the book’ type of guy and Rebecca is a spy so it was interesting to see how they would get along. It’s a fantastic read and I definitely would recommend this to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Woman Spy in the time of Napoleon Bonaparte February 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although this is something of a bodice-ripper type romance, there is also a good, suspenseful story. Very typical of the "Lover gets revenge, and saves the lady" kind of thing. But aside from this, the romance of life on board a battle frigate of that time, and the means of gathering information between France and Britain is a fascinating story. Subterfuge, the altering of one's identity, was simpler in those days, with no computers or cell phones! You only had to cross the seas and make your way through the spy network. Good stories from Barbara Devlin. This is the second of three in a series.(Brethren of the Coast). I read this one first, and then went back to read book one.

5.0 out of 5 stars 007 February 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Rebecca is a spy for the British government during the Napoleonic wars, who becomes entangled, first professionally, later personally, with a member of the British nobility.

Rebecca is smart, assertive, and fearless. She is also beautiful. She is a mater spy who can read a person like a book, assess a dangerous situation clearly, formulated a sound plan, and attain her objective. She finds that her skills are useful in her personal life, too. Dirk is an inhibited, duty-bound, traditional, stiff-upper-lip aristocrat who is attracted first by Rebecca’s beauty and later by winsome personality. There is a traitor in the Intelligence Service and Rebecca’s life is in danger. Dirk is assigned to protect her. He falls for her and he falls hard.

I adored Rebecca. Any man with good sense would fall in love with her without hesitation.

I know that I was supposed to like Dirk, but I couldn’t. His insistence on controlling a woman like Rebecca, giving her instructions, issuing commands about what she WILL do, while probably an accurate picture of a nineteenth century British aristocrat, comes across as arrogance to modern ears. Several times, I wanted Rebecca to throttle him, and I suspect that she could have done so had she chosen to do it.

My Lady, The Spy is a perfect light romance. It is sexy and funny and, in addition, the story is entertaining, a feature that romances often lack. It reminds of a James Bond movie when Roger Moore played 007. In those movies there was always a serious crisis; there were always beautiful, sexy women; and Bond always seemed to be about to laugh at what he was doing and at what was going on.

I highly recommend this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dying for more! January 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
What an incredible and suspenseful love story. I received a copy of this eBook from the author in exchange for an honest review and again, I'm blow away. The action, the love, and the humor make this book hard to put down. I think I have a book hangover and I'll need the next book in the series to recover!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheers for My Lady, The Spy June 25, 2014
By Melinda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love that the central character is a female spy negotiating an era that was dominated by men. Devlin crafted her with skill, making her likeable -- and very hard to forget once I finished the book.

The backdrop for the story is well-developed too. Ample details communicate the world in which the characters navigate, but there aren't so many that you have to slog through more information than you really need. It's a fine balance that's hard to achieve, and one that I always appreciate in any book I read.

I really enjoyed this book, so I highly recommend My Lady, The Spy to anyone who likes historical fiction, suspense and action stories, or even just strong female characters!

My Lady, The Spy (The Brethren Book 2) by Barbara Devlin is a cloak and dagger, sexy spy book that has snared me into this series once again! Lady Rebecca Wentworth, L’araignee, The Spider, is one of England’s most elusive and sought after spies. No one knows her true identity and only after her companion, Colin, is murdered is her identity in jeopardy. Dirk Randolph, a Knight of the Brethren is now charged with watching over her to help lure out her predator. Can the spider find out who's after her or will she fall into a trap herself?

At this point, Rebecca is positive she can’t trust anyone and will stop at nothing to avenge Colin’s death and unmask the traitor. The Knights decide that she must marry Dirk to ensure her safety and keep her identity a secret. However, Rebecca can take care of herself and is not used to being a Lady in waiting, just shopping and gossiping with the ton. But, for this mission to succeed, Rebecca and Dirk must convince everyone that they are in love and that their upcoming nuptials are real. As they plan a wedding, the Knights and the Crown work together to find out who betrayed her and killed Colin.

During Rebecca's re-introduction into society there are many men who recognize her but they see her as a Courtesan and nothing more. Will Dirk and Rebecca be able to complete their mission without sacrificing their hearts? Can Dirk ignore his feelings and get to the bottom of the threats against her? The chemistry between them is hot! The Spider has set her trap but will soon find herself ensnared in her own web. Because no one can figure out who the traitor is, everyone is a potential villain and all are in danger.

There is nothing more sexy than a lusty Captain whose only mission is to protect a lady in distress.

More About the Author

Read now: Captain of Her Heart (Brethren of the Coast Book 5) & a novella, Loving Lieutenant Douglas, in the newly released A Jewel In Time: A Sultry Sisters Anthology, with multi-published author Jeanne Adams and debut author Caitlenn T. Ainnsley. For more information, visit Barbaradevlin.com

Bestselling author Barbara Devlin was born a storyteller. A Texan, through and through, Barbara hasn't been without a book in her possession since she was in kindergarten. She wrote her first short story, a really cheesy murder-mystery, in high school, but it was a Christmas gift, a lovely little diary with a bronze lock, given to her in the fifth grade that truly inspired her love for writing.

After completing part of her undergraduate studies at the University of London, where she developed a love of all things British, Barbara returned home and began a career in banking. But the late 80s weren't too promising for the financial industry, and every bank that hired Barbara soon folded. So she searched for a stable occupation, and the local police department offered the answer to her prayers.

Initially, Barbara wasn't too sure about her new career in law enforcement, but she soon came to love being a police officer. And then one uncharacteristically cold and icy day in December 1998, Barbara was struck by a car and pinned against a guardrail while working an accident on a major highway. Permanently disabled, she retired from the police department and devoted her time and energy to physical therapy.

Once Barbara got back on her feet, she focused on a new career in academia. She earned an MA in English and continued a course of study for a Doctorate in Literature and Rhetoric. She happily considered herself an exceedingly eccentric English professor, until success in Indie publishing lured her into writing, full-time, featuring her fictional knighthood, the Brethren of the Coast.
