A diplomat and a spy, the dashing Lord Langley is happy to be home after years spent abroad, though less so to discover the ladies he so callously loved and left have been anxiously awaiting his return. Hoping to put his checkered past - and his persistent ex

kalo mo liat felicity & thalia yg udah dewasa begitu pasti bayangin lord langley sbg pria paro baya yg kebapakan.

bener2 deh baca cerita ttg lord langley ini susah bayangin dia udah punya anak gadis yg bukan hanya 1 tp 2.
I was wrong.
It was worse.
An hero that although on his forty e two years old, "sounds" like he's twenty. His behaviour could be described as juvenile and i never saw anything that would correspond to the title of master spy. An heroine, Minerva, that has an unlikely _ and far-fetched _ secret. It just didn't work. I wasn't interessed in...more

Minerva es una viuda respetable, una mujer de moral recta y estricta que vive de acuerdo con las normas de la sociedad londinense. No es feliz, pero tampoco se siente desdichada; lleva una vida sosegada, alejada de cualquier hombre, que lo único que haría sería complicarle la vida. No tiene intención de cambiar su estado civil, piensa terminar sus días como viuda, y es que su matrimonio no la proporcionó ninguna satisfacción. A la vida de la última de las viudas Standon llegará lord Langley...more
Minerva was not a particularly likable character in the earlier books, so it was nice to view her more sympathetically.
I thought the dialog was done well and the villains were pretty good and the backstory good. The only major issue I had with it was there's a scene where Minerva is being seriously threatened and Langley doesn't really seem to react, not then,...more
Sin embargo, las tramas de espías no me gustan mucho y en este libro están bastante presentes, además de que la relación entre los protagonistas se me ha hecho muy rápida. En general, las actitudes de los personajes me han parecido un poco fuera de época, ya que todos son muy liberales, tanto en su forma de actuar como en la de hablar, así que...more
RRAH's THOUGHTS AND PONDERINGS:
For the last three years, Lord Langley has been thought dead, a traitor to his country, and now he is ready to return and clear his name. There you go. That's the main plot.
Minerva is one of the three, and the last one of the Standon widows who have been given an ultimatum by Lord Langley's daughter Felicity to `get themselves hitched' or be financially cut off by her husband, the Duke. Well, the other two...more
All of London believes Lord Langley to be dead…and a good number think he might be a traitor as well. Neither is true, though someone has done their level best to kill Langley and frame him for treason. Having escaped a French prison, Langley is back in Town, ready to clear his name and reclaim his life. To do that, he needs a level of respectability, and how better to attain it than to arrange an engagemen...more
The other two Standon widows have married and Minerva is enjoying the peace and quite now that she has the house t...more
I loved how anti-climatic the revelation of her secret was for everyone but her. Sounds weird, I know, but I l...more
From Goodreads: Lord Langley and Minerva, Lady Standon, began their faux engagement with three simple rules set down by the baron's all-too-proper (and utterly unlikely) bride-to-be.
1. No more kissing. The intoxicating kiss Langley stole from her lips still has Minerva aflutter.
2. She will not share his bed. (For if his kiss is that tempting, Minerva doesn't dare imagine what a night in Langley's embrace will do to her already addled senses.)
3. No scandal...more
Overall, I thought it was a bit unlikely. I mean, four of Langley's former mistresses storming Minerva's house and taking up residence there because they beli...more
