Better Off Wed is an intriguing, sassy romance. Full of spies, vigilantes, and code breakers, this novel grabs your attention on page one and doesn’t let go.
Captain Jeremy Addison, Viscount Sterling, is a spy for the Crown. Miss Laura Hopkins, a genteel-bred young lady, becomes Lady Sterling at night – an avenging angel for abused and assaulted women. Through chance and fate, the couple is thrown together and combines their skill sets to help a woman in need. Jeremey is the ultimate gentleman yet is haunted by a dark past that threatens his future happiness. Laura is smart, savvy, and full of spunk. Her moral compass is sound, and she risks everything for those women who are used terribly by powerful men.
Jeremy and Laura are both stand-out characters. They breathed life into this seductive, intelligent plot. Their attraction is instantaneous, and their youthful innocence is endearing. The storyline had depth and focus; it moved well and kept my attention throughout. The marrying of spy and vigilante themes was unique and memorable. The couple’s connection is honest and comes from tentative sensuality.
Better Off Wed is the third book in the Live And Let Spy series. This was a clever, witty, passionate book. Susanna Craig has combined action and passion for creating a vivid, unusual romance. I loved the intricate plot, excellent and lovable characters, and deep, emotional dialogue. This romance kept me turning the page and wanting more!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through Netgalley and the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
