It isn't easy moving about Society dressed like a dandy-especially when one is a ruthless spy. But that's precisely the latest mission for Liar's Club agent Dalton Montmorecy. Dalton is posing as Sir Thorogood, the elusive cartoonist whose scathing political caricatures have all of London abuzz. The true identity of Sir Thorogood is a mystery, and Dalton hopes that impersonating him will flush out the real menace before his cartoons do further damage to the Crown. Now, if Dalton could only find a way to get the irksome, yet oddly appealing widow, Clara Simpson, off his trail... When Clara meets Sir Thorogood at a ball, she's certain he is an impostor-because she's the true Sir Thorogood. Secretly penning the cartoons under the frothy nom de plume, Clara hopes to save enough money so that she can leave her in-laws and find a new residence. Now she is determined to reveal an imposter's identity-and that means doing some undercover work herself. But pretending to be someone you're not has a funny way of making a woman do things she wouldn't ordinarily dream of-even if it drives her straight into the arms of her devilishly handsome adversary!

I started this book expecting to not like it. The main characters were both playing way to many roles. I spent quite a bit of the book wanting the charade to end. I ended up liking both Dalton and Clara, although I could have done without them both playing several roles. Clara played a maid nam...
I only read the book after this one in the series and definitely enjoyed it more than The Spy. While this is about the relationship of Dalton and Clara, the story focussed on the intrigue that involves both characters. There is plenty if twists and turns as well as a lot of humor. It's a very fun...
Not quite as entertaining as the first one, pretty good, nonetheless. There were a few points - the cat goes from being skinny to having two kittens in a couple of weeks. I scratched my head about that one. And the H/h crammed into a sideboard and making out. How did they have enough room to do ...
Couldn't get past the first appearance of the hero. He's a Lord something or other, i.e. a member of high society and listed in Debrett's Peerage. But he dresses up in clownish clothes as a disguise and arrives at a society ball in London, gets announced under a false name, and he (or the author) th...
Nice, light and enjoyable, but not nearly as witty nor as humorous as the first one. And the ending was not what this book deserved; it was a bit frustrating. Still, I'm thoroughly enjoying Bradley's writing and can't wait to read the next books, even though right now I think I'll make a leap to To ...
