Every gentleman has his secrets…

London 1821

After years of marriage to a selfish man who preferred gambling to his young bride, Jane, the widowed countess of Stanwell, now seeks what she was long denied-a satisfying lover. Naturally, a lady needs a list of eligible candidates, which doesn’t include the dangerously handsome (if far too arrogant) Gareth Ramsey…until he steals a sinful kiss from Jane’s all-too-willing lips.

Reputed as an arrogant barrister, Gareth’s real occupation is as a spy in the service of His Majesty, and his suspect is on Jane’s list of possible lovers. With her life in danger, there’s no safer place for Jane than with him-and in his bed. But Jane is as distracting as she is infuriating, and keeping her by his side while he pursues his mission might just endanger them both…


"A devilishly entertaining read, with plenty of sizzling sensuality and dangerous exploits, to keep the readers attention. Tina Gabrielle's characters are full of depth and emotions, and it was easy to love both Jane and Gareth. With a few twists and turns, and love scenes that set the reader on fire, AT THE SPY'S PLEASURE is sure to set your pulse racing and I recommend it to Regency romance fans everywhere." --Fresh Fiction

"Passionate and fast-paced...Tina Gabrielle kept me turning the pages." --USA Today bestselling author, Sally MacKenzie

"It is such a great book, it will hook you from page one...Get it today!" --Chrissy Whelan, Goodreads

"The chemistry sparking between Gareth and Jane is practically combustible." --April Hollingworth, Goodreads

By Elle May 22, 2015

There is something so fun about reading a romance set in England in the 1800s. Perhaps because it was an era that is associated with love and romance, a fantastical time that probably wasn’t nearly as wonderful as we make it out to be. Even so, I fall easily into the ideas and sink into the story, w ...more
