first in the Devere series, read Almost a Princess next. This is Rosamund Devere's story.

The story of the Devere's will keep you entertained - you'll want to read all three of these books in succession!

Picked this up at a used bookstore out of 10 books for my mom. She said this was the best of the bunch so I read it and liked it enough to pick up the other books in the series for a read. Wikipedia lists "Whisper His Name", "Princess Charming" and "Almost a Princess" as 2 coming first and one after and possibly "Shady Lady" as related as well as another with ties to His Magesty's Secret Service characters.

Strong female heroine who rescues her man and stands by him when many do not. An interesting twist for one of the villains of the story that will be fun to pick up the earlier clues for when I reread the book sooner or later. :)

Richard Maitland, war hero, spy extraordinaire, chief of special branches, and highly honorable has made some powerful enemies in his career. He does not suffer fools gladly and is usually portrayed as a `dour Scot' with few real friends - but those that he does name as friends are `sterling' in character as well. Richard has been attacked, made to look like a murderer, tried, convicted and two days away from being executed.

Lady Rosamond Devere, daughter of a powerful duke, and thought to be a perfect matrimonial choice for a prince is visiting a `friend' who `for a lark' wants to bring Richard Maitland - his `last meal' at Newgate prison. Unfortunately, the timing could not have been worse as Richard, with the help of his trusty bodyguard, Harper, is attempting a prison break at the time of their visit. Seizing the moment, and Lady Rosamond as a hostage, Richard and Harper make their escape.
