Review by: Elizabeth Rowan Keith on Nov. 06, 2012 :
An excellent read. This is a story full of twists and turns through a tightly-woven plot that unfolds in a series of captivating events. Everyone is hiding something, even if it is only to protect their own vulnerability. The characters are so deeply developed that they seem entirely real. This book held my attention from beginning to end. Highly recommended.

Review by: Jutzie on Oct. 23, 2012 :
Marcus Beaumont is the 5th Viscount of Driscoll. He is also a spy for England. He recently barely made it out of a situation and will be glad when he can be done with all of this. He would really love to have a home and family but not while he has to disappear for months at a time. When his friend Conrad Winston tells him about a beautiful widow who shot him down...quite a turn of events as women never turned Conrad down...Marcus decides he will meet her and once he does he can’t get Arabelle Wentworth out of his lusty thoughts.

Widowed Caroline Winston Edwards had an unusual marriage. One that left her knowledgeable about politics since Jason had talked with her as an equal. After his death she was recreated. First she sought out to find her husbands murderer and then she ended up being a spy for England. Most in life though Caroline desired for a certain man to notice her in more than a passing way.

Conrad Winston was not quite who everyone thought him to be. They thought him to be a gambler and a rake. Yet he was much more. In the upper ranks of being a spy he knew both his sister and friend were spies as well but neither of them knew of each other or Conrad. He couldn’t wait until they could all retire and laugh about it.

Another interesting story from Suzy with plenty of unexpected twists and turns. Her writing lets you in the minds of most of the characters not just the main two. There are also little stories going on along with the main one which is much to do with the spy ring and those involved. But no fear there is plenty of romance and more.

Review by: Red Dog Pub Publishing on March 25, 2012 :
THE INSIGNIFICANCE OF BEING A SPY

Might also have been called “When Spies Fall In Love.”
The title comes from the necessity of a spy to appear as insignificant as possible so no one will notice him. But strong emotions, not to mention lust, have a way of being noticed.
The action takes place in England, just weeks before the Battle of Waterloo. Everyone in the book seems to be a spy. There are spies from every nation plus a beautiful spy who works for herself.
There’s plenty of lust, sex and strong emotions in this book. It’s a good read. The author has a wonderful way of implying the 19th century manner of speech and a realistic grasp of the fact that men will be men and women will be woman, no matter what century they live in.
