But when he meets Elizabeth Owens, things begin to change. Distance becomes difficult, convenience become...more
I liked this one, good characters and storyline. I picked this one up without reading the synopsis which was great, I liked the surprises along the way and watching things play out. This is book three in the Longon League series, but stood well on its own. I liked Malcome and Beth, both were likable characters and a good fit for each other. I found Beth to be a little too perfect at times. I liked their realationship and how it evolves.

This is a book of a marriage of convenience that becomes inconvenient when the characters develop feelings for each other. I loved the characters. My heart was really taken by the adorable children, particularly the little girls who are trying to become fairies.
Wow- the author once again outdid herself with this newest addition to the London League series. Seriously, I finished this book in one day, and I still want to re-read favorite parts.
Beth and Malcom or “Cap” as he is known in the first two books, have such a unique story. They marry based solely on the fact that Malcom needs someone to care for his mother-less children, and Beth chooses this life over that of a governess. Beth was an absolute favorite fro ...more

I really enjoy Connollys series, always have and I believe I always will!
This one did not disappoint. I enjoyed every moment of reading it and am looking forward to reading Rooks story.
A wonderful clean romance with adventure, secrets, and love!
I do hope that Connolly creates a map for me to remember who each character is. I love it when past characters are in these books but my muddled mind sometimes has difficulty in remembering who is who.
Totally recommend this series al ...more
I love all the wonderful characters of the London League. I was pleased by the patience and care shown by both our hero and heroine. Their marriage only suffered on the few occasions that they were less than honest about their feelings. Perhaps a lesson or two is there for us all. I can’t wait for the next book!
I give A Tip of the Cap four and a half stars. I can not wait ...more
A perfect blend of suspense & intrigue - with both the romance & the mystery!
I loved the fact that characters from the other stories in this series as well as from the authors other books crossed over into this story. It makes me want to read & in quite a few cases re-read them all over again! But most particularly the other books from the London League series. I definitely recommend you read them!! I have fallen in love with all of Rebecca’s characters ...more

This book seemed to be less about the league and more about the marriage and the two didn't meet until the end. All the spy stuff was at a standstill because they couldn't figure out clues to help them and Malcolm spends much of the book with his family instead of doing league work so the two things felt very separate.
I loved the banter between Malcolm and Beth. She was so funny. I smiled and even laughed at her words. An ...more
London League #3
By Rebecca Connolly
Malcolm Colerain, Earl of Montgomery, finds himself in a most unenviable position. Two years ago he lost his beloved wife and finds himself in need of a new wife, one who will provide stability and security for his children should he lose his life while in service to the Crown. As a member of the London League, Cap, as he is known to his fellow operatives, is feeling the tightening noose of danger as the French threat grows. Malcolm (aka Monty) ...more
Malcolm needs a wife because he knows his 4 children need a mother. He's no where near ready to love again, so when he proposes to Beth, he tells her it will be a marriage without affection . . . or so he thinks.
Beth knows to not expect affection or love in her marriage to Malcolm. The fact that he proposed to her within two weeks of their meeting was enough to make that an accurate deduction; besides the fact that he said as m ...more
Enter tormented, silent man of mystery with a dark past and closed-off heart, who then meets an upbeat, marginally feisty, relatively unsought after woman and miraculously transforms into the (still-tormented), utterly besotted lover who is torn between duty and feelings and is terrified of danger coming to his woman. The romance goes something like this: separate and intrigued, acquainted and ...more

I have enjoyed all the London League stories of spies, mystery and love. This story centers around the many states of grief after the death of a loved one, specifically Monty's first wife Carolyn. With 4 young children who need a mother, Monty knows he must marry again for their sake, not his. It's been two years since Carolyn died, but Monty hasn't moved on or worked through all his grief. Enter Beth, a young woman who needs to marry and who lives children, Monty married her and t ...more
I was just waiting and waiting for the next book in this series to come out! Very surprised to find out that this story revolved around "Cap"! Beth, the children, and Lily were such loveable and realistic characters; you can't help becoming so immersed in this story with characters like these! Then to be with our old friends, Tibby, Rogue, Rook, and my favorite, Gent- all our old friends from previous stories- it just doesn't get any better!!!! Now I'm biting at t ...more

I have loved this series a lot and I'm always excited for a new installment. This was another great read, probably my least favorite of the series so far, but that's just a matter of me loving the previous two books just little bit more. I really enjoyed watching this couple come together, and I loved Malcom's arc, going from being sort of alone in a lot of respects, to finding so much to care for in the world again. It was a great read, and though it doesn't have as much of a spy plot ...more
