To capture the most eligible bachelor in London…
The handsome Earl of Summersby may just be the most eligible bachelor in London, but has no interest in a wife. As a member of the Brotherhood, Bennett Haile is far more vested in his undercover duties for the crown and protecting the Queen from would-be assassins. For now he has the perfect tool with which to lure out the villains—a young woman with an uncanny likeness to the queen.
The spirited Evelyn Marington is about to live out every country girl’s dream—becoming royalty overnight. Under the tutelage of the arrogant Earl of Summersby, she’ll have to fool the entire court that she is, in fact, the queen. But as danger threatens from every side, Bennett realizes that his lovely little protegé isn’t just placing her life in his hands… She’s stealing his heart.

Better than OK..
I love stories about spies. And early on someone dropped a heavy flower pot from above and our hero got to be a hero and save Evie, to feel her in his arms. I love that: the description of how he felt when she was in his arms. It’s like the beginning of sexual tension, of desire.... ...more
J'hésite avec 3,5 parce que c'est un peu court ppur un roman...
Mais j'ai aimé ce livre qui nous plonge au début du règne de Victoria, quand sa légitimité n'est pas encore assurée (ciel une jeune femme reine....)

I really enjoyed reading Undercover with the Earl, and cannot wait for there to be more in this series. I'm a total sucker for spy/undercover stories, especially ones that bring in a person who's totally... ...more
My biggest disappointment with this story was that the ending did feel a bit unresolved to me, as I felt the big climatic moment not only fell flat, but did not tie up all the lose ends that had been uncovered. Even when it came to Bennett and Evelyn, I wish there could have been an epilogue so w... ...more

I really liked both Evelyn and Bennett. They both think that they are not looking for marriage. Evelyn because she doesn't think she is attractive or desireable, and Bennett because he doesn't believe in love or that he is loveable. As they work together to keep the Queen's secret, they help each... ...more
