*Starred Review* Serena Allen was used to scientists coming to Boulton Park to examine her family's famous butterfly collection, but Julien Clermont was nothing like those other "butterfly men." At first Serena suspects the all-too-charming Julien of being a suitor in disguise, especially since Serena's aunt seems bent on promoting a match between the two. Then diplomatic documents belonging to her uncle go missing, and Serena discovers she isn't the only one with doubts about Julien's real intentions. Although Julien does have his reasons for being at Boulton Park, he isn't completely convinced that he can share them with the delightfully sharp-tongued and sharp-minded Serena until he is forced to choose between love and settling an old family score. A refreshingly resourceful heroine and a wickedly refined hero spar with deliciously entertaining results in the fourth of Abrams' loosely connected series of espionage-laced romances set in Regency Europe. With its expertly nuanced characters, beautifully developed sexual tension, and witty and graceful prose, The Spy's Kiss is nothing short of brilliant. John Charles
