She's braved battlefields. She's stolen dispatches from under the noses of heads of state. She's played the worldly courtesan, the naÔve virgin, the refined British lady, even a Gypsy boy. But Annique Villiers, the elusive spy known as the Fox Cub, has finally met the one man she can't outwit...

British spymaster Robert Grey must enter France and bring back the brilliant, beautiful-and dangerous-Fox Cub. His duty is to capture her and her secrets for England. When the two natural enemies are thrown into prison, they forge an uneasy alliance to break free.

Quotes & Awards

  • “In her exceptional debut romance, Bourne deftly distills danger, deception, and desire into a seamlessly constructed story that will captivate readers with its irresistible combination of superbly nuanced characters and a high-adrenaline plot.”

    Booklist

  • “Books by [Joanna Bourne] are like a box of fine Laduree macaroons, not cheap junk food. They should be leisurely savored as the exquisite delicacies they are, for Bourne is a master wordsmith, able to charm, excite or break a reader’s heart with the stroke of her pen.”

    Dear Author, praise for the author

Listener Opinions

    " Totally delightful, but I seriously felt like I needed a book cover for reading it in public. Washboard abs on my book, no thank you. If I want a book about N*SYNC I will read one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jana | 2/11/2014

    " There are some books that are very appealing on the first glance and you get high hopes that they will end up being good, but the thing that went wrong with this story was its narration. I couldn't understand their talk, this story was just pulling my nails. It wasn't that it hurt me, but because I was so hoping to be good, it wasn't. I didn't believe it, that she was blind, and that later she didn't recognise this spy because he changed his voice and then later when he deflowered her in the bathtub I stopped reading. Oh, not because I find virgins and spies in water distasteful but if that scene didn't provoke my interest, which one then would. The biggest thing I object is lack of consistency. If you're good, strive to be good all the way through, not just glimpses here and there. "

    " Mark Twain once wrote a scathingly funny review of the Leatherstocking tales by James Fenimore Cooper in which he detailed the improbability, both psychological and physical, of the adventures Cooper described. My initial reaction to this book reminded me of Twain's reaction to Cooper, though I'd be much less funny about it. But though the cover art is cringe-worthy, and though there are some elements of the story that made me roll my eyes, it's an easy read, and an entertaining one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alleyne | 2/2/2014

    " A fantastic regency adventure romance! Spies and plots. And so very well written. Just brilliant. I can't wait to read Ms. Bourne's next book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carolyn | 1/29/2014

    " I read this at the recommendation of a friend. The cover is embarrassing and has nothing to do with the book. I don't think we ever see the hero outside with his shirt half off. This would be a fine book for a beach or airplane, as the heroine is fun and there are parts of the book that are quite funny. The plot twists and turns and there are enough surprises to keep it interesting. It's very light and not very satisfying, but fun and interesting if you are looking for that type of book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J. Ostrowski | 1/18/2014

    " Too smart to be just romance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jasmine Haynes | 1/13/2014

    " a wonderful and very detailed romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kori | 12/26/2013

    " I enjoyed this historical romance. There really isn't much bodice ripping action, so I almost feel like it could be re-packaged as light spy fiction. I thought there was plenty of plot action, witty dialogue, and interesting history - plus a sexy hero to boot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 3/28/2013

    " Downloaded and read over a weekend...a fun read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elaine Mcdonald | 12/16/2012

    " I enjoy Bourne's Spymaster Series. This is the second of the series that I have read. It is a nice break from my usual historical romances, that tend to have the typical storyline. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy Walton Grant | 10/27/2012

    " Woweeeeee this was good. I be speechless. "

    " One of the best books I've read this year. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtnie | 9/25/2012

    " The espionage was fun, but I bored of Annique halfway through. Have the rest of the series on hold at the library, so I am somewhat eager to keep reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori Baldi | 6/15/2012

    " This book was very enjoyable. I'll try to find more by this author. There is another book with a similar name that sounds like it might work for me. The characters were engaging, the story was different from the norm, and the plot was intriguing. I recommend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 11/9/2011

    " I actually thought this was pretty cute. I appreciated that she used a strong heroine. It was a pretty fast read and it kept my attention the whole time. I'm going to try the next one of this series out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allanna | 9/11/2011

    " Very interesting. I enjoyed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 The | 5/15/2011

    " well, well, well you do read it in one go pretty much as it is absolutely mindless and full of sexual tension and more...but I think this will be my only book by Joanna Bourne. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 FictionVixen | 3/29/2011

    " Wonderful book, lovely story. The dialog is so rich and lush. I really enjoyed this one, I think I need to read more Joanna Bourne. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 3/18/2011

    " The book was full of intrigue and held my interest but I found the book a bit longer than it had to be. I loved the narrator. Her accents were wonderful! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Zeek | 3/15/2011

    " I think I'm the only one who couldnt get into The Spymaster's Lady. I quit about page 100 deciding I'll have to come back to it later- if ever. I have issues with the heroine. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Annis | 2/8/2011

    " I liked the plot and the characters, but unfortunately it has once more been proven I'm not much of a romance fan. I loved the book until the main characters got together, then I quickly lost interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 2/6/2011

    " This was billed as "historical fiction". Shoulda known it was romance! (Entirely formulaic, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cary | 1/9/2011

    " This was interesting because I had actually never read this type of romance plot. Different is always good! Brave, strong, resourceful and self-reliant hero and heroine were good. It was warm but only got that way at the end!!

    "
