My Rating: 4.5 Stars

She has become a master of disguise, all in the name of vengeance. What happens when the man she once kidnapped crosses her path again and returns the favor by stealing her heart and kidnapping her “for her own safety?” Toss some treason into the mix, add some heated passion and this tale of the-spy-who-loved-me will entertain historical romance readers from start to finish, because, as they say, the plot thickens…

RESCUED BY THE SPY by Laura A. Barnes has all the atmosphere

Rescued by the Spy (Romancing the Spies #2) by Laura A. Barnes was a steamy historical romance that was just as or may have been better then, the first.

Not my first read by this author or in this series. Be advised that though this book follow different MC's, the actually plot is a continuation one from the first book, and even the way that Charles and Raina met, is a carry over. This book picks up were the first leaves off, so I do highly suggest reading the first book, as to not get the

This was an interesting book. Interesting that it was a true historical romantic suspense novel and I honestly don’t read a lot of them. Sure, some of the ones that I have read have some intrigue to them but this one was a spot on suspense book. Kidnappings, threats, some violence and a twist that was truly OMG. But dear readers, you really need to read the first book. I didn’t and there is a story arc that is being played out that I didn’t get into at first. I’m still a bit confused but I think ...more

Rescued by the Spy by Laura A Barnes is the second book in her new series Romancing the Spies, and it was a fantastic romance that I couldn’t put down. Following the story of Raina LeClair and Charles Mallory, this story grabbed me from page one and didn’t let go until well beyond the last words. Raina wants nothing more than extract her revenge for the wrongs done to her family, and being the master of disguise that she is, she is willing to do anything to get to her final goal. But Raina did ...more

5 out of 5 stars

The story Rescued By the Spy by Laura A. Barnes is a wonderful romance book the I loved reading. It is a story that grabbed my attention from the very beginning and I found myself getting lost in the pages. I loved reading about the characters of Raina LeClair and Charles Mallory. Raina is a woman who is after revenge for what was done to her family. She is quite a master of disguise. Although disguising herself from Charles Mallory is turning

Usually I am not a major fan of historical romances but, the first one in the Romancing the Spies series from Laura Barnes, Rescued By the Captain, was actually a really gripping read for me so I was back for more with Rescued by the Spy. This one was not too bad, but not my favorite of the two.

In Rescued by the Spy we get the story of Raina LeClair and Charles Mallory. Raina is on a mission to find out who is responsible for killing her family. When she finds them she has a particular plan in

Rescued by the Spy is book 2 in the Romancing the Spies series by Laura Barnes. And boy oh boy is this one sexy, exciting, sexy, funny, heart breaking and even thought-provoking and did I say sexy?! Raina and Charles WOW! These two are hot. Hot alone and hot together. And then there is Maxwell…Oh Maxwell please be a good guy. His actions just leave you guessing. There are spies everywhere. It seems as if everyone is a spy but there is no telling who works for the Crown, who works for Shears and ...more

Rescued by the Spy is the second book in the Romancing the Spies series by Laura A. Barnes. It is an intriguing and action-packed historical romance that has kidnapping, romance, mystery, suspense, adventure, drama, revenge, espionage, treason, disguises, secrets, and lies. This is the second book in the series, but it can be read as a standalone, although this book focuses on a different couple than the first book, I do recommend reading book one as there is a tie

I thoroughly enjoy when a series continues and you get to see side characters from the first book in a main character role. Raina and Charles keep dancing around one another and I love that Raina will let nothing get in the way of her revenge. She crafts the most elaborate disguises and fools people she knows well time and time again. Even though she loves Charles more than anything, she knows he'd be better off with someone else and since she won't rest until her revenge against the man who ...more

Rescued By The Spy by Laura A. Barnes. Am intriguing and twisting tale this is sure to keep you interested throughout.
Raina is haunted by the murder of her family. She will stop at nothing to find the person responsible and bring them to justice. Even if that means kidnapping.
What she doesn’t expect is to find herself in the clutches of the person she held captive those years ago.
And when she finds herself as part of a treason plot things become much more dangerous. Raina has to learn how to

This is the second book that I have read in this series and again I absolutely loved it! I love historical romance and I am so excited to have found a new author to love! Rescued by The Spy can be read as a standalone. I loved Raina; she was a really great character who constantly had me guessing. I really liked Charles too and he definitely understood Raina more than she thought he did and he was determined to make her his. I

I was in total historical romance heaven here. This is the second book in the Romancing the spies
series and I can say this book didnt dissappoint. I was transfixed from page one same as I was with
the first. I was drawn into the world of intrigue and drama. I must admit that I was quite confused

Enjoyed the book even though it was a lot like a cat and mouse game. Raine is out for revenge on the person who killed her family and working as a spy at the same time. Charles is trying to find the one who kidnapped him and almost got himself killed. This book appears to have been a spin off of the first book, which I have not read and would probably fill in some of the gaps in this book. There were times when I was confused as to what was being noted but I think that was part of the first book ...more

Laura A. Barnes' Rescued by the Spy is the second book in the Romancing the Spies series; this historical romance follows secondary characters introduced earlier in the series: Raina and Charles. This story provides excellently written suspense and adventure while including a steady mix of tension, attraction and romance.

Rescued By the Spy By Laura A. Barnes. Lately I’m finding myself reading more and more historical romance stories which wasn’t usually my thing but this author is certainly changing my mind on that. This is the second story I’ve read by this author and once again I sank into it fully. The characters immediately take you on their adventure filled with action and romance. The plot is well written and thought out with characters you fall for. It’s paced nicely never feeling rushed or dragging on. I ...more

Rescued by the Spy by Laura A Barnes

Four Stars

What do you do when the man you’re falling for puts his country before everything? This author has written a fun story about the historical world. Were ladies wore demure clothing and men presented themselves as gentleman but they were all players. Raina didn’t show her emotions easily and yet Charles could read her so easily. I liked that she wasn’t some damsel in distress and that she had backbone. Too many books I have read were the women of this

I received this book as an ARC and is the first book I have read by Ms Barnes. It was well written with lots of adventure, action, romance, twist and turns. The characters worked well together. Even though this is the second book in the series, it can be read as a standalone book, although it would have been better if you have read the first book as this is a continued adventure. I will be reading more of Ms Barnes books. There were a few sex scenes and this reviewer skipped them as always and ...more

I find books that have both love and action are marvelous reads and this one did not disappoint. Now this one does have some steam. Charles and Raina are great characters. What I really found was this book starts off right where the first book ends and is written so there are different points of view that make for a very interesting read.

This is my second book by this author and I loved it just as much as the first one. I love how this author is able to pull me into the world of the characters and make me feel as if I am right there with them. They took me on an emotional roller coaster ride that is full of romance and action. The characters are both lovable and connectable, great chemistry. They made the story, I couldn't put down until the last page. I highly recommend this book, great romance story.

A well written steamy historical romance that is a continuation of the first story, picking up were it left off with how Charles and Raina met. These two are hot in this sexy, exciting, funny, and heart breaking story. This exciting storyline is a deadly plot with hidden danger, and spies that do not play by the the rules. Cant wait for more.

Laura A. Barnes has written another great story with Rescued by the Spy. This is Charles Mallory and Raina LeClairs story. Raina and Charles have a “rocky” start to put it mildly…and by mildly I mean she kidnapped him. When he accidentally comes across Raina while he’s tracking Captain Shears he knows he can’t loose her again. This story has its ups and downs but overall it’s a great addition to my Laura Barnes collection .

I really enjoyed this next story in the "Romancing the Spies" series. It's a very intriguing and captivating story that I could not put down. Enjoyable and interesting from the beginning until the very end. I loved Raina!!! I liked Charles too but just Raina more. The two together were a great match. I loved the ending plus it gives you a glimpse of what is to come with Zane's story.

I didn't read the first book in the series, so I was a little worried about spoiler alerts. I don't think that was an issue.

The author was new to me. Her writing style is good, descriptive and enjoyable. Except for all the sex scenes. I'm torn if I will read more of her work or not!
