I thoroughly enjoyed this second book in Maggi Andersen’s The Spies of Mayfair series with its engaging story, appealing characters and delightful romance. There is also mystery, drama and intrigue.John Haldane, Earl of Straithairn:Somehow, the surge of adrenaline and sense of living on the edge banished the anguish he carried. And nothing else had thus far come close.John is a man of action rather than words and, after returning from the Napoleonic Wars, he can’t contemplate hours of debati [...]
It’s no secret that I’ve been on a historical romance bender – and this book hit all the happy places for me: great characters, a touch of intrigue, family, the royals and even a villainous suitor!A late regency, the story focuses on Sibella: 26 years old and finally feeling the familial pressure to make a choice and marry. As one of several children, she has been the auntie and allowed, within reason, to lead her own life. A long-held crush on a family friend, now returned from the wars h [...]
A fan of Maggi Andersen’s novels, I was not disappointed in her latest addition to her ‘Mayfair Spy’ series. Her heroines are always of their time, in that being dominated by male relatives, husbands and sometimes even suitors, they have to find a way round Regency conventions to live the life they want. Her heroine Sibella, like the author’s other ladies, is no weak and pliable female, but still her life is not completely her own as she has familial responsibilities and society to consi [...]
Maggi Andersen gives her readers a wonderfully charming Regency romance in her latest novel, Taming a Gentleman Spy, the latest addition to the Mayfair Spy series. Maggi Anderson is a master of portraying the complicated emotions of the Regency era and the societal confines on women. In love and life, Regency women must be innovative in order to circumvent the male domination of their lives and live the life they want and the love they deserve. Taming a Gentleman Spy's Sibella is one such woman, [...]
That sweet unforgettable kiss! I had the chance to receive an ARC of Taming a Gentleman Spy written by Maggi Andersen. This is an intriguing Regency story with loving characters. Sibella is an outspoken young woman who doesn't want to marry and give up her independence and John Haldane, a dashing Earl who loves his solitude and wants to stay free. The intrigue was well developed, believable and well-written. It all started, when an innocent kiss between Sibella and John, ignited a sweet passion. [...]

I loved this book! The characters come on stage with wounds, bruises, laughter and longings that are slow-roasted over the fire of daily life and extraordinary events that were entirely believable. No one is a modern super-character dressed in Regency clothing, thank you Ms. Andersen! The hero and heroine are consistent with the era that produced them and are surrounded by family, friends, obligations, and anxieties that have produced their unique story.John Haldane, Earl of Strathairn and Lady [...]
This is a suspenseful, engrossing story. It's captivating and full of intrigue, and has some charming characters. The relationship between John and Sibella is sweet and gentle, it's romantic the way the engage with each other. The drama that unfolds after John's rejection is heartbreaking for them both. In the end John redeems himself completely.I received a complimentary copy of this book from eBook Discovery. This is my honest opinion of it.

His resolve was even more strengthened when his partner whose wife recently gave birth was killed. Lady Sibella has turned down many offers of marriage because she loves John but after a while his brother is determined to get her married. This is an interesting and intriguing novel. "I received this book for f [...]
A Spy to Love is a really enjoyable romance with intrigue and danger interwoven. John Haldane and Sibella Winborne are well matched in temperament and honour and have been good friends for years. John is reluctant to take a wife in light of the work he does with the Foreign Office tracking down enemies of the Crown, as he has no wish to leave a widow behind should he get himself killed in the line of duty.

Rating: 4 1/2 starsI received this book for review from Book Trailer Showcase and from the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. In the second chapter, our author has Strathairn reading some poetry. It always makes me wonder if the author loves poetry or how they go about finding just the right quote. And Maggi is so descriptive with her scenes that she makes me feel as if I were there. But I’m also glad that I live in this century. I don’t think that I [...]
TAMING A GENTLEMAN SPY by Maggie Andersen is an exciting Regency Historical Romance set in England. The Spies of Mayfair #2, but can be read as a stand alone. See, "A Baron in Her Bed".Meet, John Haldane, Earl of Strathairn and Lady Sibella Winborne.Fast paced tale of passion, danger, mystery, intrigue,spies and romance. Oh did I mention passion! Ms. Andersen has done a wonderful job of pulling the reader into Regency England, as well as written a tale that is emotional, dramatic, intriguing and [...]
The characters' behaviours and twists are hardly believable. The heroes are nice people and likeable. But there is no real reason they can't be together, or rather, the only reason is far-fetched. The villains are caricatural.Historical events and laws are mentioned, discussed but not explained or developed and as a result the reader doesn't feel involved or interested.This is the second novels by this writer I don't enjoy, so I don't think I'll read another.
