A Spy's Devotion by Melanie Dickerson

 Book Summary:

In England’s Regency era, manners and elegance reign in public life—but behind closed doors treason and tawdriness thrive. Nicholas Langdon is no stranger to reserved civility or bloody barbarity. After suffering a battlefield injury, the wealthy, well-connected British officer returns home to heal—and to fulfill a dying soldier’s last wish by delivering his coded diary.

At the home of the Wilherns, one of England’s most powerful families, Langdon attends a lavish ball where he meets their beautiful and intelligent ward, Julia Grey. Determined to maintain propriety, he keeps his distance—until the diary is stolen and all clues lead to Julia’s guardian. As Langdon traces an evil plot that could be the nation’s undoing, he grows ever more intrigued by the lovely young woman. And when Julia realizes that England—and the man she is falling in love with—need her help, she finds herself caught in the fray. Will the two succumb to their attraction while fighting to save their country?

My Review:

Dickerson has long been my favorite author of fairy tales and now she has ventured into the regency genre! *squeal* I couldn't be more excited about how wonderful this book is! Julia is what makes this book! Her story speaks loudly to the reader and this incredible tale takes twists and turns that kept me up reading until my eyes were burning for rest. But I had to finish her story! I had to know if she would ever be able to be with the man she loved! She was so good and kind, she deserved a happy ending, right? Honestly, this story just grabbed me and held me captive through the entirety! I know Dickerson has not done it before, but I would LOVE it if she wrote the same story from Nicholas' perspective! I was dying to know all of his thoughts throughout the book!  Dickerson tells Julia's story masterfully and I am convinced there is nothing she writes that I will not love! A true love story to its core, A Spy's Devotion will have you asking, what would you do for the one you love? I received an ecopy via Netgalley.

Happy Reading!!!
