I LOVED this book. What made this story so excellent was the amazing plot the author developed, with rich characters and complicated emotions. It was such a great story to read and it had me dying to know what happens!Lady Sophia has been unsuccessfully trying to find out what happened to her father. He died under very mysterious circumstances and she is seeking revenge for the heart breaking loss she has endured. Her father, although a noble, was a scientist and was deemed the ‘Mad Marquess†[...]

Started out very fast paced which drew me in to learn more about the roguish spy Robert and the mysterious Sophia. Robert was intelligent, handsome and good at his job. Sophia was also smart and determined to get what she wanted. These two were sweet together and I am very interested in reading the next book in this spy series.

I liked the concept of this book and really wanted to like it, but right away items kept throwing themselves in my path of appreciation. “She came forward, slowly stepping into the swath of moonlight until her features were fully illuminated”.Why on earth is she standing in a beam of moonlight?! Is it natural in the Victorian era to step into a dark room until you are standing in the center of moonlight?“She had fiery red hair.” Um, this is moonlight, not daylight. Any redhead will tell [...]

Great readThis book was entertaining at the very beginning. Sophia was impatient and brave, and Roberts was impatient and frustrated. The chemistry between the two was fantastic and, naturally, neither wanted to admit it. Well, the chemistry was worth reading about until Sophia suddenly became TSTL. The minute she thought, “Stay out of my business, be damned” (Robert told her to stay out of his business) I knew she was going to get ignorant and act like she knew about being a spy like Robert [...]

With sweet romance mixed with an intriguing mystery, A Spy Unmasked was an enjoyable read. It was a great romance and I really liked it.Sophia was a determined character. She wanted to take down her father's killer and she would find a way to do it no matter what. She was clever and knew how to play the game. I thought she was a great heroine.Robert was likable as well. He was extremely skilled and clever, but also sweet and a kinder man than he let on. I thought he was wonderful.The romance was [...]

A Spy Unmasked by Tina Gabrielle was a joy to read. I love historical females who are more than a pretty face. Lady Sophia filled that bill. She's adventurous, intelligent and unafraid -- a perfect match for spy Robert Ware, Earl of Kirkland.I found it particularly symbolic that the book opens with Lady Sophia Merrill and Robert Ware meeting at a masked ball. The wild ride they have through the woods and him unmasking her sets off a series of unfolding events where the villains are unmasked. You [...]

I enjoyed reading this book. The plot was interesting, and it was unraveled in a fast pace engaging manner that I appreciated. I was really invested in the characters journey and that is always a fabulous thing. While I liked Lady Sophia and admired her determination to seek justice for her father’s death, I loved Robert. He drew me into the story, and I felt his anguish and the battle he underwent fighting his attraction and need for Sophia. I loved his past and how it shaped his character to [...]

Review copy provided by NetGalley. Loved this book, the mystery and the love story will keep you hooked. The book was fast paced which was a big plus since it's a mystery too. There is a deadline and H&H are busy trying to figure the villain behind the murders for some inventors. Lady Sophia's father was murdered and she suspects the leader of the Inventor's Society. Robert Ware, Earl of Kirkland is a spy and has been assigned this case. The two are forced to work together to uncover why the [...]

Lots of twists and turns as a spy tries to deal with the determined woman seeking justice. Great for fans of Regency-set romantic suspense.

Spy stories are my favorite of the Regency historicals. I love the intrigue and mystery as an additional element to the plot, the dashing men and daring ladies who serve the Crown, to uncover secrets and to right wrongs. It's also the fact that I'm a complete sucker for a hero or heroine who serves his country. To me, there's no nobler sacrifice.This story had a great plot and a great mystery. There were times during the story when I would get really annoyed with Sophia and would be tempted to n [...]

Review Courtesy of April HollingworthA fun and intriguing read this is the first book in a fabulous new series. I found the characters fun and intriguing, both determined and yet kind and heartwarming. They are characters you would love to meet in person. A wonderfully fabulous read.Opening Scene:May 10, 1820London, Viscount Delmont’s ballroomRobert Ware adjusted his black half mask and sipped a glass of claret as he surveyed the glittering ballroom.The Review:Robert Ware, the Earl of Kirkland [...]

Another book I got from Netgalley for an honest review. It took me a couple of days to get through it but because of private reasons. Anyway, the story is nice. A mask ball – a man and a woman who do not know each other. Robert Ware, the Earl of Kirkland, is a spy for the crown and attending a masquerade party to be able to investigate a couple of safes and retrieve documents. Being in the library of the house, a forbidden part of the house, documents in hand, he’s found by beautiful masked [...]

I received a free copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.When Lady Sophia Merrill's father is found dead in a brothel in St Giles, ruled as an overdose of opium, Sophia is determined to track down the killer knowing that her father must have been murdered. In trying to get evidence, she runs into the hero, Robert, the Earl of Kirkland who is also investigating a series of murders on behalf of the crown. In order to keep her safe, Robert's superior decides to have So [...]

Her inventor father was murdered and she has an inkling of who did it, but no evidence to back it up. So Lady Sophia Merrill sets out to find the evidence against the perpetrator by braking into his study and acquiring the evidence against Viscount Delmont, but she is foiled when someone else gets there first.Industrious and cocksure Robert Ware, the new Earl of Kirkland has a colorful background which includes spying for the crown. When Robert discovers the pretty young woman trying to obtain s [...]

Full review up on the blog: gloriousbooks/201I've been reading a lot of books lately where the story gets split because of some event or another and I end up liking one part of the book a lot more than the other. This one was no exception. The Earl of Kirkland is a spy investigating the goings on in a secret society until Lady Sophia almost blows the whole operation. There is a point in the story where Sophia gets involved in the whole spying business a lot more than before. It's at that point w [...]

When Lady Sophia Merrill's father is found dead in a brothel in St Giles, ruled as an overdose of opium, Sophia is determined to track down the killer knowing that her father must have been murdered.

This story got moving straight away. Readers don't need to wait for more than a chapter to get to the good stuff. Safecracking, check. Hero being accosted by a masked redhead, check. A kiss to avoid discovery by the traitor's guards, check. When a story starts like that, how can you stop reading? Easy -- you can't. My advice is to keep reading through the night and take a nap during your lunch hour tomorrow. I do have to admit that I thought I knew what was going to happen when I started reading [...]

Originally posted at Bunny's ReviewI have always wondered if female spies were part of regency England. No matter what a female is able to go places and do things that no man will ever be able to accomplish. The best part about historical books is that I can live thru them. With History being a favorite subject of mine I read most anything dealing with his. If the book has some romance in it then the better.Sophia is a headstrong female with thoughts and ideas before her time. Ideas that most re [...]

Robert Ware, the new Earl of Kirkland, tortured soul, decent man and Home Office spy collides with Lady Sophia Merrill, gorgeous, intelligent young woman, with enticing or fiery green eyes (depending on how you interact with her) and the determination of a terrier.Their meeting is one to remember.

A SPY UNMASKED, delivers so much more than a smoking hot cover.Sexy, smart, and laced with historical curiosities, A SPY UNMASKED is multifaceted and beautifully done. As the title hints, our hero has more to him that originally meets the eye
and so does the book.Robert Ware, a spy in service of her majesty the queen, teams up with Lady Sophia Merrill, the daughter of an inventor, in order to solve the mystery of her father’s murder. Disguised as a betrothed couple, they infiltrate a secret [...]

I don't know if I can get through this one. It's not that there's anything wrong with the writing or characters so far, but I'm having a very hard time with the author's complete ignorance of social customs of the time. A young, gently born girl living ALONE after her father's death?? What the That's like having a character in a traditional modern romance just casually take up residence in a free-love commune. It would have been an unheard of thing and have left all the character's relations und [...]

Just as the cover is so "not" the Regency, this romance was entertaining but often missed the mark. Robert, the hero, is a spy for England sent to investigate an inventor's society's treachery. He is tortured by memories of his first wife's death during a previous investigation.Sophia, the heroine, is determined to uncover her father's murderer. Inexplicably, they're forced together to a house party to solve both situations. The best part of the story is their banter there and the deft way in wh [...]

**** Copy from NetGalley in return for an honest review****This is the first book by Tina Gabrielle that I've read - and I enjoyed it. I've read a fair few Historical Romances involving spies - and whilst this is not quite as good as Lauren Willig's Pink Carnation series, it's not at all bad. I liked the characters, I liked the premise and if I thought it took a bit too long to get to the real action, it didn't bother me overmuch. The resolution was a tad rushed, but it tied up all the loose end [...]

4.5 starsI have always enjoyed Ms Gabrielle's work and it has been a long time since her last book. While I was hoping for another book in her barrister series, I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I liked Robert and Sophia. I thought they had good chemistry between them. I liked the mystery aspect of this story too. It was very well done. And when the "mastermind" is revealed - Well, I was amazed - totally didn't see that coming!I knocked 1/2 a star off because I think the whole dead wife s [...]

What a wonderfully original storyline. And provocative cover! Of course there were spies back in the early 1800s. But do we ever really read about them? No. This story explores that premise, and does a very good job doing so. The author knows her history, and adds just enough to keep us interested without boring us with too much historical detail.The characters are extremely likeable, and the hero is angsty without being maudlin. The heroine is feisty and brave.The four-star rating is because th [...]

Full review: cronicasdeumaleitora.A spy unmasked
 I must confess that I did not read the synopsis until half of the book not to spoil the fun, but while yesterday Love’s legacy was more serious, this one has definitely a more mainstream tone. A love unmasked is a page turner especially when it drives off other regency novels and focus on an eccentric heroine. Tina Gabrielle takes a dare step with the first book of the series mixing mystery and suspense with good romance. And it also teaches [...]

I loved the opening that has a cocky confident Robert Ware on a mission for His Majesty at a masquerade party, looking for information into a secret society.Enter Lady Sophia Merrill whom throughout a fast paced adventurous storyline ends up betrothed to the sexy mystery man Robert!I enjoyed every one of Tina Gabrielle's characters, Sophia's head strong personality, you'll feel the tension and pent up passion between Robert & Sophia as well as a great mystery with a twist!It's all about Hope [...]

I received this from Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review. This is a pretty fast paced historical. It is definitely different from other books because this one is a historical about spies. I have read a few but this one was surprisingly well written and engaging. I loved the whole "who done it" vibe the author gives out. The only thing I did not love was the ending was way to fast. The climax of the story seemed rushed. It needed way more. Other than that this was a pretty good [...]

Sophia and Robert end up in one of those fake engagements for a purpose - to solve a mystery. Each has a different priority in solving this same situation, but both are seriously dedicated to the task. I like Sophia's character. She's strong willed and intelligent and turns out to truly aid in the resolution of this mission. I happened to read the second book in this series first, and neither story suffered for it. I am looking forward to the third installment which I hope/believe will be Daniel [...]
