My Lord and Spymaster

My Lord and Spymaster - Joanna Bourne Disappointing, after how much I loved The Spymaster's Lady. I thought I'd finally found a historical romance author who wouldn't cause me to rail against the all-too-common hero who thinks that the only appropriate place for the woman he loves is under his thumb, where he makes all the important decisions and protects her from life's evils. But no.Though I do appreciate the fact that Bourne isn't as obsessed with the nobility as most romance authors who set their books in this period usually are. Spies and rogues are much more interesting than gently bred, innocent young ladies and earls, and I'm glad to finally find an author who seems to agree with me.
