Summary from Goodreads: Juliana Telford is not your average nineteenth-century young lady. She’s much more interested in researching ladybugs than marriage, fashionable dresses, or dances. So when her father sends her to London for a season, she’s determined not to form any attachments. Instead, she plans to secretly publish their research.
Spencer Northam is not the average young gentleman of leisure he appears. He is actually a spy for the War Office, and is more focused on acing his first mission than meeting eligible ladies. Fortunately, Juliana feels the same, and they agree to pretend to fall for each other. Spencer can finally focus, until he is tasked with observing Juliana’s traveling companions . . . and Juliana herself.
From the pretty black and white cover to the Victorian-era spy story, this book is one of the top on my 2016 to read list. I can tell the romance in this book is going to be cute (they pretend to fall for each other? I bet that’s going to be interesting!), and I’m looking forward to sitting down and spending an afternoon falling in love with this one!
