London, 1814

Remington Hawthorne, Earl of Latham, has spent his life protecting the Crown. When he’s assigned to play the part of lover to Emma Masterson, one of the few female spies in England and the one woman he can’t forget, he’ll have to risk his heart as well as his life.

It isn’t easy being an independent woman, much less a spy. Perpetually tasked with proving she is as valuable as any man in her profession, the last thing Emma needs is to be reunited with the one man who makes her want to forget her duties and get lost in passion.

I always enjoy a good spy story, and in this one Emma Masterson is an agent with the Seven, working undercover as a governess in the home of Lord Comfry, who is suspected of being a traitor. I loved that Emma is a spy in her own right, well trained and capable. When the man is murdered, and then Emm ...more

A sweet, lovely novella, No Ordinary Mistress was a great read. I really enjoyed reading this quick romance.

Both characters were great. Emma was strong and determined to prove herself as a good spy. Remington was sweet, though I occasionally wanted to shake him for being an idiot. I liked them both ...more

The other day I finished No Ordinary Mistress by Robyn DeHart. This is the first in her new series Masquerading Mistresses and I have to say that it's a great start to the series. Since this is a novella, I'm not going to go into a lot of detail, because it would be easy to ...more

I'm a fan of Robyn DeHart's books because she always writes very interesting female characters. This story stayed true to her previous works. Since this is a novella, I don't want to give away any of the plot. It was definitely a mystery that kept me interested. I was intrigued by the idea of a fema ...more

Emma is a spy during a time that most people believe women have no business being in that line of work. She is set on proving her worth and that women can be spies just as men can. The story starts with Emma and Remy working an assignment together. Th ...more

I fell in love with the Forbidden love series (especially Justin Rodale) and this new series (Masquerading Mistresses) is off to a great start. Remington (Remy - love the name?!) is a member of the peer but also a spy. He is charming and sexy and any woman's dream. Emma is in the minority as a membe ...more

It was a sweet and somewhat romantic novella!

I hate it that it just had to be a novella because I was really enjoying the story and by the time I realize it, I was almost finish with it and I didn't want that.

I love both Remington and Emma. At the beginning, you learn that they had been trying to f ...more

This is the first book I've ever read by Robin DeHart and I was saddened at the end when I found out it was a novella - as opposed to a full-length novel - because I didn't want the story to end. I liked Emma and Remy, both funny, smart ...more

By Auriette March 13, 2014

I thought that "No Ordinary Mistress" was a really good mystery with chilling thrills. The plot was excellent. The heroine, Emma, is more developed than Remy, the hero; her back story is quite intriguing. We don't learn anything about Remy's history and how he ended up in the spy game.

My greatest cr ...more

Thanks Robyn DeHart, spy romances are a new favorite of mine. I enjoyed this one, and can't wait to read more in the series.
