In 1851, Cecilia Paring has serious reservations about marrying her fiancé, Devin Montlake. Gone is the boy who could capture her heart with a word or a glance and in his place is a man who has made it clear that to be a proper barrister's wife, the exciting and impulsive Cecilia must change as well.Although Devin Montlake loves his orderly life as a barrister, he's determined to follow his roadmap to achieve his goal of becoming a judge. His biggest obstacle seems to be convincing his headstrong fiancée to fulfill her social obligations with a modicum of propriety. But when the jewelry collection belonging to Cecilia's family is stolen the night before it is to be auctioned off and Devin is framed for the crime, he discovers that following his much-loved rules won't solve this particular problem. He'll need the inventiveness of his irrepressible fiancée to catch the thief.
Sheridan Jeane's "It Takes a Spy" is a historical romance novella. I like the characters and the intrigue. I felt empathy for the leading lady, Cecilia - as I've been told myself that I need lessons in ladylike behavior! Ha! Devin, the leading man, seems to be very taken with Cecilia. The intimate scene was scrumptious. I wish there had been and epilogue maybe after their first child with one more hot sex scene and show he still loves her fiery ways. 3.5 out of 5
