The Prince of Spies by Elizabeth Camden is the third book in her Hope and Glory series. If you’ve been reading along with the series, this is the long-awaited story staring Luke Delacroix and it was well worth the wait.
The Delacroix and Magruder families have been at war with each other for decades. Luke is determined to take down Clyde, who is now a Congressman, for putting what Luke considers to be harmful preservatives into Magruder food products. Luke goes as far as volunteering for a food study to prove how bad those preservatives happen to be.
What Luke doesn’t reckon on is falling in love with Clyde Magruder’s daughter, Marianne. Marianne is a photographer for the Department of the Interior. A woman of compassion and filled with the desire to preserve what is good and just. Falling for Luke could mean being cut off from her family. Does she really love him that much?
Prince of Spies is one of my favorite romances. It is so sweet. So lacking in silly drama and so full of trouble and danger. It’s the type of book I know I’m going to want to re-read anytime I want a good ol’ love story.
The whole series has been steeped in history and fascinating details (my reviews of The Spice King and A Gilded Lady). Not to mention, the covers are absolutely fantastic (and especially awesome when put side-by-side). Yes, I highly recommend reading the whole trilogy.
