Peek Inside Undercover With The Earl

The arrogant Earl of Somersby, Bennett Haile, is far more vested in protecting the Queen than finding a wife. For he has the perfect tool with which to lure out the villains...a young woman with an uncanny likeness to the queen. Under his tutelage, country girl Evelyn Marrington will have to fool the entire court that she is, in fact, the queen. But as danger threatens from every side, Bennett's lovely little protegé isn't just placing her life in his hands...she's stealing his heart.

To capture the most eligible bachelor in London… 

London, 1838

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.


"A sexy brooding hero and a spunky smart heroine...a fun & fresh romp sure to please!" ~Jess Michaels, USA Today Bestseller 

"Ms. DeHart weaves a story so amazing that you feel yourself standing in the room experiencing the adventure, watching love blossom, and ready to join whatever chaos ensues." --Mary Gramlich, Goodreads 

"Robyn DeHart is such a fun writer! She is an automatic click on my to-read list." --Diana Silva, Goodreads 

"This book was full of adventure and intrigue. The romance between the two characters was engaging and exciting." ~Kilts and Swords

Read this one to do a cover quote. A really fun adventure! I recommend it!! ...more

By Trish August 11, 2015

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. But ...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....)
Avec d'un côté Evie, jeune fille sosie de la Reine, qui se rêve en future Jane Austen ou ...more

It was a pleasure to read this book. I always enjoy Robyn DeHart books and when I heard that there was a new series of hers coming out I jumped at the chance to read it. (Thank you Tasty Book Tours for that). You can't go wrong with Robyn Dehart for historical romance and this calls to ev ...more

Satisfying adventure in victorian England!

This is the first book in the Brotherhood of the Sword (Custos a Vesica) and it doesn't end with a cliffhanger.

Robyn deHart is a talented author and I loved her voice. The blurb was really was to to me, I was so curious about how one would be trained to pre ...more

Robyn has written a story line with a bit of a twist to it. She has put the young Queen Victoria into her story. Spoiler. There are a set of problems ahead. Major Spoilers. Bennett argues on how to use this plan. Evie falls into the and drives Bennett mad with arguing back at him. This is an Art, Tr ...more

As a huge fan of PBS’s Victoria series, I welcomed this series set in the early reign of Queen Victoria.

In the year of Our Lord 1838 the young Queen has just taken the throne of England, and right off the bat, enemy is lurking around and the plots abound to end her reign.

However, there are men who’v ...more

A sensual Victorian tale

involving a royal impersonation, an oversized hero, an independently- minded heroine, a secret patriotic organization and a neatly resolved plot in want of proofreading. ...more

By Brittany October 07, 2020

This was an interesting start to the series. If I hadn’t gotten the book 3 in series from Netgalley I wouldn’t probably continued. It just didn’t pull me in. I mean it was an okay read but wasn’t over the moon about it. ...more

Originally posted on my blog: Tangled Up In Books

I received a copy of this book, from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. In no way did this sway either my review or my rating!

Sigh. Is there anything better than historical swoons? There's just so much about it to get your pulse racing. ...more

I love when you open the first book in a new series and you have an instant like of the hero, the heroine and the supporting characters that you know will be getting their HEA, if we are all just patient.

An author/spinster heroine who goes undercover with an earl in Victorian England? Yes, please!

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 in ...more

By Krystal August 09, 2015

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 we k ...more

This story had hooked me from the very first lines, the first sentence is taken from Pride & Prejudice, It's an historical novel fun, exciting and romantic, with a well-constructed and original plot and delightfully engaging characters.

I do not know how I missed these books by Robyn DeHart. If it had not been mentioned to me I would have truly missed out on a great read. I love historical Romance, and she writes one heck of a book. Needles to say I will be seeking out other books by her, while I wait for book two to come out in th ...more

3.5 stars. Evelyn Merrington is the middle of five sisters and at times she feels as if she is a changeling amongst graceful beauties. One evening the Earl of Summersby approaches her at a ball and gives her a chance at adventure that she just can't refuse. That she looks very similar to Queen Victo ...more

By Jen August 14, 2015

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 ot ...more

Robyn DeHart's past writing was the reason I purchased an e--reader..and this book just showed me yet again how she is able to weave a story where you "feel" as if you are a character in it,not just a bystander reading some novel..First off let me say,I adored BOTH of these characters from the very ...more

A witty light read perfect for when you are in-between books.
I enjoyed it, it was short and to the point. At moments it had a Jane-Austen-kind-of vibe but with more adventure and mystery. (view spoiler)
Our heroine is a bookworm that bel ...more
