Lord and Lady Spy

Shana Galen. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $6.99 mass market (384p) ISBN 978-1-4022-5907-4
An unhappily married couple—not Mr. and Mrs. Smith but Lord and Lady Smythe—discover that they're both secretly secret agents in this enjoyably overblown Regency adventure. Sophia Galloway is the daughter of one of Britain's most legendary spies and a spy in her own right. Her husband, Adrian, is also a spy, trying desperately to make up for his father's traitorous misdeeds. When the Napoleonic War ends, both are left jobless. Each leaps at the chance to tackle a top-secret mission, but when they recognize each other at the midnight meeting, a heated game of intrigue and one-upmanship begins. The James Bond–esque heroics alternate with a surprisingly sensitive take on a young couple trying to cope with infertility, arranged marriage, and years of secrecy. Galen makes it all work with plenty of action on the street and in the bedroom. (Sept.)
