Okay now I want to read more books about spies and the Napoleonic Wars. The setting intrigues me beyond belief. Different than most regency spy thrillers, the story takes place in both France and England. Not to mention, both the hero and the heroine are spies. I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. The Spymaster's Lady was about trust, conspiracies, love, passion, and truth. I fell in love with the prose which I think bothered other readers. However, it made sense to me that Bourne wrote the prose the way she did because Annique is French. So, she's going to think like a Frenchwoman. Thus, the prose is going to be reminiscent of the French language and still be accessible to readers. While reading this book, I thought the author brought a new and innovative type of historical romance. I've never read one like it before now. I want more regency spy thrillers. Publishers, authors make. this. happen.
