The Lady and Mr. Jones
Spy in the Ton #4
By Alyssa Alexander

Releasing November 27th, 2017

In The Lady and Mr. Jones (Spy in the Ton #4) by Alyssa Alexander, no man is more Cat Ashdown's opposite than Jones, the man she's just met and the man that has declared himself her shadow in order to keep her safe. However, when Jones latest assignment brings him in constant contact with Cat, he decides it's better that she's on his side than trying to find information about her uncle's dealings on her own. Yet, the closer they come to discovering the truth, the more danger Jones and Cat find themselves in. Will Jones be able to keep Cat safe, or will he lose the woman he's falling in love with, even if he believes there's no chance of a future between them?

There is something really exciting about the opposites attract trope in a Historical Romance, especially when the hero is a spy and the heroine a lady of the Ton that is determined to discover the truth about what's going on with her uncle with or without the hero's help. Really, this book was highly entertaining, fast-paced and I loved everything the hero and heroine overcame to be together including the hero believing he isn't good enough for the heroine. Will Cat and Jones being together cause a scandal because of his past and the fact that she's a prominent member of the Ton?

The way this story started had me immediately hooked, because of what Jones is doing and whether he'd have to go through with what needs to be done to protect his mentor. However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine come face-to-face for the first time that had me reading quickly, determined to discover more about this pair and their back stories; what direction their growing relationship would take and whether the hero would be able to protect the heroine.

With the dialogue, it was well-written, captivating and I loved how intense it was because of what the heroine's uncle puts Cat through and the hero's investigation into whether her uncle is doing anything illegal. What will Jones discover? Moreover, the heroine is strong and brave by doing everything she can to help Jones and I loved the way they communicated, so no one would be able to uncover what they're really talking about. I also liked how determined the heroine was to fight for a future with Jones. Can she prove to him that he means more to her than the worry a scandal could create for her? While the hero, he's had a rough life growing up and I liked how he's turned it around. He's also confident when it comes to his abilities as a spy and determined to always do the right thing. Yet, what I liked most about the hero was his determination to keep the heroine safe and allow her to help him to get the answers she needs to protect herself from her uncle.

Overall, Ms. Alexander has delivered an incredible read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was heady and convincing; and the ending had me loving the efforts the hero goes to protect the heroine and make sure she doesn't suffer for her uncle's wrongs. However, it was the lengths the heroine went to for the hero to realize they're meant to be together that had me loving the way this story ended for this couple and their relationship. Will the hero realize that Cat is his Ms. Right before it's too late? I would recommend The Lady and Mr. Jones by Alyssa Alexander, if you enjoy Historical Romance; the opposites attract trope; stories encompassing espionage and spies; or books by authors Stacy Reid, Christi Caldwell, Vanessa Kelly and Darcy Burke.

Born in the rookeries, the hard life is something Jones is all too familiar with. Saved as a young boy, he was trained to be a spy, one of the best--elite, in fact. He now spends his days serving His Majesty in espionage, hunting rogue spies. His latest assignment, though, has him tracking a fellow spy…

Cat Ashdown is a baroness. Nothing is more important than protecting five hundred years of heritage. She knows every detail of every estate that commands the largest income in Britain— yet her father placed her inheritance in trust to her uncle who is forcing her to marry a man she has no desire for. The baroness’s battle against law and convention leads her to Jones and results that are surprising … and possibly unwanted.
