Jane...First of all, I loved her name. When I first read 'Jane Bonde,' I was both amused and intrigued. The name fit her, though, because she was a totally badass spy. She was definitely not to be underestimated, taking down traitors and keeping her hair and dress perfect and the same time. But, I also liked that, when she let the spy fade into Jane, she was a kind and likable character. I thought she was great.
Dominic was also wonderful. He had some dark secrets in his past that still affected him. But, despite that, he was still a kind man who was the epitome of a gentleman. He was very sweet and endearing and I totally adored him.
The romance was lovely. Jane and Dominic were great together. They were both strong, and they had both seen darkness in their lives, so it was clear how they implicitly understood each other. And, the heat level was steamy between them. Sparks were always flying with these two.
The plot was well paced and, while I wasn't completely hooked, I was kept interested the entire way through. There were plenty of thrills to be had as Jane tried to take down a criminal. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was perfect.
Love and Let Spy was a fantastic historical romance. I really liked this wonderful book. It had delightful romance, constant thrills, and I enjoyed all of it. Romance lovers, this is a book worth checking out.

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t read the previous books, it can easily be read as a stand-alone. The story is great, the characters wonderful as always, but the best thing about this book is the most wonderful love story ever, in my opinion. I seldom cry, maybe a tiny tear or two, but this book had me bawling like crazy! It’s so beautiful, your heart breaks; never have 3 little words, and not the ones you’re thinking of, have been so moving and heartbreaking. Do not miss it!
I really felt this romance was more about Jane Bonde, a strong and admirable heroine who is a spy. It’s fabulous to see a woman in Regency England kicking some spy ass while falling in love and being able to keep her position despite the conventions of the time. Realistic? Perhaps, perhaps not. But I’m sure there were unconventional marriages and relationships then just as there are now.
The allusions to the Ian Fleming James Bond stories are fun to read, especially since the spy is a woman. What’s unique about Jane is that she isn’t a girl-in-pants spy. She’s every inch a gorgeous and accomplished lady. She also happens to be unconventional, fearless, and smart.
"What she would not give for a night of quiet and a good book on ancient weapons or deadly poisons."
"It wasn’t that she didn’t like children. She did like them, but she also liked traveling the world, hunting double agents, and priming a pistol."
"She objected to marriage and the freedoms it would curtail."
We meet Baron and Butterfly (True Spies) as well as Wolf and Saint (Lord and Lady Spy) from the previous books, all members of the Barbican group, a spy network for the home office, run by Melbourne, aka M., and Jane’s uncle and guardian. He has raised her since she was orphaned and groomed her to be a spy and she’s one of the best. Oh, and let’s not forget the enigmatic and ever fashionable Blue! (I think he’s my favorite Barbican spy).*
At the beginning of the story, as in all the books, they are on the hunt for Foncé, a dangerous French nemesis.

Jane Bonde, shaken not stirred, M, Q. Really? I find 21st century fictional characters in 1816 England a little silly. The rest of the story was okay but has been done before.Published 9 months ago by Amazon Customer
