Aurelia Farnham was widowed three years
ago and had become accustomed to her life with her
daughter. When Greville Falconer reveals that her late
husband was a spy, her world is turned upside down. And
when Greville asks her to help him with his latest mission,
she makes the biggest leap of her life.
Greville teaches Aurelia the art of
being a spy. While her mission is mostly to help introduce
Greville to the ton and keep an eye out for strange
occurrences, it soon becomes more than that. Their cover as
an engaged couple begins to seem very real to both of them.
And when Aureliaís life is in danger, both discover just how
far they will go for their country and for love.
I am a fan of Ms. Featherís but I was
left a little disappointed with A Husbandís Wicked
Ways, the third in a series. Greville is the best
part of the story. Heís the consummate spy Ė no
attachments, no emotional ties. Itís wonderful to watch as
he falls for Aurelia. I had a hard time believing Aureliaís
character would do some of the things she does. The story
is intriguing, if possibly overly drawn out. When I look
back on the book, the main image I have is of Greville, who
nearly makes up for any lack in the rest of the book.
