Book Description

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. . ..

Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

If anyone could locate Grey Sommers, Lord Wyndham, it would be Cassie Fox. Ten years ago, Sommers disappeared while on a routine spy mission in France. Now rumors have surfaced that he might very well be alive and imprisoned in Castle Durand. With her years of experience spying for the British and her ability to disguise herself and blend anonymously into the background, Cassie is the perfect agent for the mission. Indeed, she successfully infiltrates Castle Durand and rescues both Grey and a fellow prisoner. As they journey back to England and safety, Cassie does her best to remain professionally detached, only to find herself hopelessly falling for Grey, instead. The two engage in a passionate affair, which Cassie knows must end once Grey resumes his old life as a titled lord. The always reliable Putney imbues the latest installment in her elegantly written Lost Lords series with richly nuanced characters and an entrancing plot packed with an abundance of sizzling sexual chemistry and dangerous intrigue. --John Charles

**3.75 stars**

I really liked the book overall, but there were a few areas of weakness that I feel I need to point out.

First though I would like to say that the great things about this book are Cassie and Grey. I absolutely adored the both of them. If I had to give stars based on the main characters this book would have gotten a resounding 5 stars for me. Cassie is probably one of the strongest female characters I've ever read in a historical romance novel. Grey's a true flawed hero, who learns from his mistakes and at times, he made me want to cry because he makes himself so vulnerable to Cassie and vice-versa. Both of them are written beautifully and I definitely felt the vulnerability, heat and romance of the pair. I felt their connection from the first and I really liked how Putney developed their romance.

The story itself was quite well-done, as I said above I really liked the book overall. Grey is imprisoned by a cruel and deranged French government official and Cassie is sent to find information on his disappearance and ends up rescuing him. I loved the aspect of the reverse 'damsel in distress' here, or I should say 'Gentleman in distress'. I love that she was so clever a spy that she managed to rescue Grey and Pere Laurent. This gets a big thumbs up from me. I also loved the addition of Regine and her puppies and that Grey rescued Regine and showed a sensitivity few male heroes exhibit in historical romance novels.

And here we come to the not-so-good.

1) Cassie's explanation of why she never contacted her relatives in England. She basically tells her cousins that she didn't think they would remember her after all those years. She had played with those cousins and been around the British side of the family when she was a child.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings May 31, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm going to be peevish and superficial and start with the cover. Hello, Mrs. Robinson! Cassie looks like a woman of the world, true to her character. I love her foxy pose and savvy facial expression. In contrast, Grey looks like a healthy young boy fresh out of... 10 years in a dungeon? No. He looks like a spoiled, randy young lordling hitting on an older woman. As much as I love the depiction of Cassie, I dislike the depiction of Grey. Still, overall it is a better cover than that of Loving a Lost Lord, which had the main characters positioned in the bottom corner of the cover in a pose I found too awkward for words. Good thing I don't often judge a book by the cover. I purchased both books based on Ms. Putney's name alone.

My second peevish remark has to do with the printer and not the author. The pages of my book were poorly printed, sometimes bound so close to the fold that I had to hyper extend the book spine backwards to open the book wide enough to read the text, sometimes printed so close to the edge of the page that I read each sentence twice to make sure no words were cut off, and page 362 of my book was blank, leaving page 363 to start in mid sentence. Unprofessionally done, Zebra.

Overall this was an interesting addition to Mary Jo Putney's The Lost Lords series. I did feel that the characters' conflicts and emotional traumas were quickly and conveniently resolved and the depth of their personal interactions was somewhat shallow. I will continue to read the series, however, and look forward to stories featuring Kirkland and Rob Carmichael.

NO LONGER A GENTLEMAN by Mary Jo Putney is a fast paced historical romance set in 1813 London and France. It is book #4 in "The Lost Lords" series,but can be read as a stand a lone. See, "Loving a Lost Lord","Never Less Than A Lady", and "Nowhere Near Respectable". Cassie Fox,spy who lost everything finds happiness,family,and rescues the Lost Lord Wyndham. Lord Wyndham was imprisoned for ten years in a dungeon in France. Cassie rescues him and together they cross France through danger,desire,and passion,back to England. Along the way,they find strength,love and healing. But when the kind friends who helped escape France are imprisoned in the same dungeon, Lord Wyndham must to their rescue. Though one last perilous mission,both Cassie and Wyndham,if they survive may bring them the one thing they have always needed;each other. A fast paced,story with strong characters,passion,romance,love,danger,and a search for happiness. Ms. Putney is another wonderful storyteller,who pulls the reader into the story. A must read. A story full of adventure and love. A must read!

Received for an honest review from the publisher. Details can be found at Zebra Books,published by Kensington Publishing Corp,the author's website,and My Book Addiction and More.

RATING: 4.5

HEAT RATING:

5.0 out of 5 stars A Zero-bookmark Winner From Mary Jo Putney! August 31, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read a lot. When I get bored or impatient with a book, I put a bookmark where I stopped reading, leaving another bookmark where I start reading again. I've used up to eight bookmarks in books that I liked enough to go back to finish reading previously-skipped chapters. I am simply impatient when a book is not quite telling me what I want to know, when I want to know it.

With No Longer A Gentleman (The Lost Lords), I used not even one bookmark, proving that there was no insipid and meaningless dialogue, no lengthy descriptions of costumes, no overly-dramatic and irrelevant descriptions of scenery, and that the plot swung hummingly along telling a tale about interesting characters that I liked and wanted to survive the most interesting aspect of the Regency period, the Napoleonic wars and the spycraft involved in it. It was Mary Jo Putney's best book in this very enjoyable and well-written series.
