Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Elinor Keating is tired of being ignored. Night after night, Elinor has waited patiently for her husband, Winn, to return home from work only to find that he has once again forgotten her. Well, if Winn would prefer spending all his time with his ledgers rather than his wife, so be it. Dressed in her most wicked gown, Elinor attends her friend Lady Ramsgate’s ball all by herself with the intention of finally allowing the scandalously handsome Rafe Trollope to dance with her. When Winn arrives home after another difficult day at work, he is shocked to discover that Elinor isn’t waiting for him. Upon arriving at the Ramsgate ball, Winn is even more shocked to discover his scandalously dressed wife flirting with another man! A husband and wife romantically reconnect while trying to stay one step ahead of a dangerously determined villain in Galen’s latest sexy historical romance, and the book’s lively pace, likable characters, and espionage-laced plot come together to create the perfect escapist read. --John Charles

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Originally posted on Buried Under Romance: [...]

Lady Elinor dearly loves playing with her daughters, but she has decided it's time to seek some more excitement in her life. Her husband, Baron Winslow (Winn) Keating, hardly ever comes home on time, and she is tired of waiting for him. Elinor's first act of defiance was to attend a ball alone, and second in a scandalous dress. Seeing her husband's enraged reaction to her gown only served to fuel her desire for a dalliance; maybe if she makes him jealous, it could possibly rekindle the flames of their frozen relationship.

Believed by all to be an inattentive husband, Winn is actually an elite spy for the Barbican group, and his secretive missions have prevented him from spending time with his family. Just when Winn decided to leave the group, he is given one last mission against a dangerous French enemy, one who could very well jeopardize his family's safety.

Elinor had always been in love with Winn, and they both knew it. Elinor never felt herself worthy of Winn, but after years of a cold marriage, she finally sought more. A liaison with the young and rakish Rafe Trollope -- who is supposedly a spy for the Babylon Group -- seems just the thing, except Winn overheard her and decided to prevent another man from seducing his wife. Together with Agent Wolf and Saint from the first book, Lord and Lady Spy, Winn sought to not only uncover the truth of Rafe Trollope and save his marriage, but also stop Foncé, the continuing antagonist from the first book of the series.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
For fourteen years Elinor Keating had not been loved. Oh yes, she'd been well provided for, had given birth to two beautiful daughters, had an enviable social status, had servants that respected, admired and felt sorry for her.

Elinor married out of necessity, but loved Winslow (Winn) Keating with all her heart even though she never felt worthy of him. He was so handsome, charming and amusing. She was faithful and accepting of his not showing up for social events and of his rarely being at home. Then one evening after fourteen years of being "stood-up", she declares, "I deserve better." She changes from her elegant, matronly attire, puts on a stunning low-cut red gown and attends her friend's garden party that she had helped organize. The Prince Regent (Prinny) was to attend.

Elinor comes out of her cocoon, different and alluring. Her new life full of danger and excitment make her feel alive, a part of something significant. Her efficiency, her eye for detail, her remarkable organizational skills make her good spy material--not the usual for a Lady of nineteenth-century London.

The reader gets to share a hair-raising, heart-pounding mission with her before she's even trained. She's a heroine to admire. Her courage, spur-of-the- moment inventiveness, and her determination in a crisis show a completely different facet of her personality that her husband Winn had never seen. What fun to see her get a little of her own back after striving for so many years to be the perfect wife. Now, she chooses to take her pleasure on her own terms, not his. He is overwhelmed and agog.

Baron Winslow Keating lied to his wife for fourteen years. He'd been expected to marry and the young biddable Elinor suited his needs very well.

With `True Spies' Ms. Galen continues her Lord and Lady Spy series that I really loved.

The character of Elinor was so well-developed that I could feel her emotions as she's torn about her feelings toward her husband who it seems that he doesn't care for her.
I found it very hard to like the hero. It took me more that half the book to start warming up to the guy!
His affection for Elinor wasn't in evidence as much as was his love for his work and that bothered me all through the read.

`True Spies' is a romance between two mature people with children, obligations and a life that has forced both characters to take stock of themselves and their future.

Shana Galen does it again and gives us fast paced, adventure filled, well written romance about a couple trying to rediscover each other all over again. I've come to love the dialogue this author created.

It's sharp, witty, clever, mature and never fails to touch my heart or tickle my funny bone. It's brilliant!
I swear I can recommend it on dialogue alone, but I must say she plotted this one well too, so if you like a good, solid plot, than you just have to get it.

MS Galen has never disappointed me with one of her stories and I loved this one and am loving this series. Elinor and Winn have been married for 14 years but are not close and when Elinor decides she wants some more excitement in her life Winn decides it is time to come home. This is a fast paced adventure a sensual romance as Elinor and Winn discover a lot about each other this one will keep you turning the pages as together they go after the killer Fonce. I loved it
