No Longer a Gentleman

By

Part of Putney’s Lost Lords series, Nowhere Near Respectable mixes romance and Regency history in equal measure and produces a riveting story. Politics and sex can cause complications far worse than imagined. The affair of casual spy Grey Sommers, Lord Wyndham, with a married Frenchwoman results in his 10-year imprisonment by her jealous, powerful husband. Cassie Fox is a British-born undercover agent whose life’s work is to bring down Napoleon’s empire. Her latest assignment: discover anything she can about Lord Wyndham and rescue him, if he is still alive.

But Lord Wyndham is not some aged patriot but a handsome, intelligent man with a wicked sense of humor and a smile to match. And Cassie, mistress of disguise, is not the elderly peasant who rescues him from the dungeon, but a woman of beauty. The agonies they have both endured causes trust, commitment, and love to hover out of reach. Wyndham and Cassie return to France on a mission to rescue a friend. If they fail, it is death for both. Success offers a chance for them to find happiness. What do the Fates hold in store for them? Read Nowhere Near Respectable and find out! A fun read.
