Review: The Lady and Mr. Jones by Alyssa Alexander

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.  

This book is really well-written and has interesting characters. I quite enjoyed reading it especially because I just love spy stories. Jones and Cat are just perfect characters, as well as, spies.

Cat has been brought up to care of her father's estates. Her father has never treated her like some helpless woman and yet for some reason he left her without much authority, she has to depend on her uncle until she marries. It seems so unfair to her. She wants to take care of her tenants and do things the right way but she can't. What more, it seems that her uncle is not the man she thought he was, he might very well be a dangerous man who is bent upon ruining her life.

Help comes in an unexpected way from an unlikely ally. Jones is working on a mission and he must do his job well. But Cat is a distraction which can lead him astray. She is fierce, independent and fearless woman and he finds himself falling for her... unfortunately they can never happen. He is not from her world and he feels that she deserves so much better... however, heart wants what it wants.

It's a beautiful love story. Jones and Cat are perfect for each other and the way they find their happily ever after is just too good. I'd definitely recommend this book if you like historical romance.

P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley.
