Review: Milady and Her Spy by Jillian Chantel


DISCLAIMER #1: This story is part of a collection of stories from a number of best selling authors. I have decided instead of reviewing them all at once which may be confusing to some of my readers, I am dedicating eight days to these amazing authors and their stories. 

From Goodreads.com:  A lady, a spy, a traitor… a battle of wills. 

Raised in the country after her mother’s death with only the company of three unruly brothers, Lady Augusta Covington is more proficient at fencing, riding and playing cards than being prim and proper. Myles Cuthbert, a spy in His Majesty’s service on a mission to find and expose a traitor, crosses paths with Lady Augusta when she rides to the aid of her brother, believing him to be injured. With the assignment at risk, Cuthbert agrees to accept the assistance of the troublesome lady eager for intrigue. As they move forward, his sense of obligation to her and the danger involved stir his soul.

My Rating: 4 stars out of 5

Even though this was a short story, it was another that I read in one day. I absolutely loved these characters! Each character was not only unique to the story itself, but they were that well-developed perfect mix of being both perfect and flawed. Out of all of them however- I have to say that Augusta was hands down my favorite of the bunch. From her willingness to sneak off into the night to come to her brother's aide, to her ability to adapt to her surroundings - she was definitely the strong female lead that this book demanded. Augusta never lost her head - even when presented with situations that would give most young ladies of her ilk a fit of the vapors, Augusta kept her wits about her and was able to overcome her circumstances. I also enjoyed watching the romance between her and Myles bloom. They definitely did not get off to the best start, so watching them not only work together - but discover each other as well was pure joy. 

That being said, I would definitely like to read more about these characters. Whether it be more adventures of the spies, or stories where Augusta's unmarried brothers find their true loves - I want to read it all!
