Determined to save her older sisters from ruin,
Portia Chadwick turns to the mysterious mercenary known only
as Nightshade for help...and in his arms, discovers a whole
new world of thieves and cutpurses, danger and passion.
Portia knows she'll never have a life of adventure. But when
a dangerous moneylender kidnaps her sister, Portia seeks
help from a man known only as Nightshade. Soon she finds
herself charging headfirst into his world of intrigue and
danger—and unexpected passion.
Dell Turner grew up in London's back alleys and gin lanes.
Vowing to escape his low beginnings, he hires himself out to
society's elite. When he accepts a job from a beautiful
young lady, he doesn't anticipate her relentless
determination to join his mad occupation...or her unnerving
ability to inspire emotions he thought long buried. She's as
dangerous to him as his world is to her, and yet Dell can't
bring himself to turn Portia away... even if it means
risking her life.
"You do strange things to me, Dell Turner. Tell me I am
not alone in what I feel."
His voice was low and rough. His eyes burned. "You are not
alone," he said.

McCarthy in her movie 'Spy'.

The Cold War was one of my favorite times in history to read about. I'll bet there were many American spies who risked their lives every day behind the Iron Curtain to keep us safe.

I don't really have a favorite. However, I do enjoy the
animals that pick up details in some of the cozies. Since I
like variety, my favorites are always changing.

The first historical spy I remember reading and hearing about while attending elementary school was the Revolutionary War American spy Nathan Hale, the man who made the famous quote "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country."
