Synopsis:

London, 1853. Despite Lady Catherine's love of fencing, she needs to stop pretending to be a boy and fraternizing with men…but not until after the fencing tournament! Her mother plans to marry her off by the end of the season, so this will be her last chance to enjoy her freedom. When she impulsively puts her reputation at risk to save the life of a dashing competitor, all seems lost when he sees through her disguise, but he vows never to reveal her secret. Thank goodness for gentlemanly honor! Daniel, Marquess of Huntley, wants to overcome the rumors of his father's madness so that he can be embraced by London society. His plan is to marry the most proper woman who will have him, and then raise stable, respectable children. He certainly isn't interested in some hoyden with a penchant for masquerading as a boy and flaunting society's rules. In fact, he'd prefer to keep his distance. When an obsessed suitor discovers Catherine's secret and threatens blackmail, the only path out of social ruin is marriage. But what kind of protection does matrimony provide when a vengeful suitor is plotting the ultimate revenge?

My review

A month ago I have read the first book in this series It Takes a Spy, I liked it a lot and I could not wait to read the second. It can be read very well as a standalone because they are completely different stories. The link between these romances is that the protagonists are two strong women and nonconformist who fight for their freedom and rights.
Catherine loves fencing and is very good but unfortunately in 1853 women were not allowed to practice this sport. But she is a woman stubborn and rebellious and with the help of her brother masquerades as a man and is training in the academy of the master Bernini.
There she meets Daniel, a marquis that to be well accepted by the London-based company needs to make a good marriage and a girl who pretends to be a man is certainly not ideal.
It 's an engaging novel, perhaps a bit slow in the first part but never boring. The history between the two protagonists is very sweet and funny, also will have to solve the mystery that is compelling
It 's a nice romantic suspense set in London mid-nineteenth century. 
I can not wait to read the adventures of the third book in the series planned for 2015
