Born in the rookeries, the hard life is something Jones is all too familiar with. Saved as a young boy, he was trained to be a spy, one of the best--elite, in fact. He now spends his days serving His Majesty in espionage, hunting rogue spies. His latest assignment, though, has him tracking a fellow spy…

Cat Ashdown is a baroness. Nothing is more important than protecting five hundred years of heritage. She knows every detail of every estate that commands the largest income in Britain— yet her father placed her inheritance in trust to her uncle who is forcing her to marry a man she has no desire for. The baroness’s battle against law and convention leads her to Jones and results that are surprising … and possibly unwanted.


“Ms. Alexander weaves a powerful story of want, desire, friendship and love. I loved Jones, a man so honorable, that only he cannot accept he could deserve to be with someone of Cat's station. He's a complicated character and the more I know out about him, the more I was rooting for him and Cat to end up together. The story is so much more than just about Cat and Jones. The story reunites previous characters and Cat's uncle Wycomb, a man who is being turned by greed. I love Ms. Alexander's writing and anxiously await the next book in the series.” –Debra M., Goodreads

“This story was a page turner for me and is one that I'd recommend!” – Windy F., NetGalley

“This is my favorite book in the series. I loved the feisty fiery Cat Ashdown. Mr. Jones is the perfect foil for her. The adventure, action, and forbidden romance make this book hard to put down.” –Nikbooklovers’s Blog

“After reading Alyssa Alexander’s The Lady and Mr. Jones, the third in her A Spy in the Ton series, I find myself rushing to read her first two. Fantastic concept, suspenseful, action-filled, total immersion in the era, and most of all, richly drawn characters that pull the reader deep into their inner lives.” – Jennifer Trethewey, author of Tying the Scot

“Wow, what a powerful novel! Adventure, espionage, love and heartbreak, this one has got it all. The characters are absolutely enchanting and I am in love with the hero and the heroine of the book. Both of them are extremely strong, loving and honorable. I loved their story and their struggle to a HEA.” –Book Diva
