A Reluctant Spy Captures more than she bargained for in this Best-selling Regency Romance
...a book full of nail biting wonders and hopes Road to Romance
London of 1803 is as wild as Rome before the fall of the Empire as the rick seek to feed their insatiable hunger for pleasure while ignoring Napoleon’s resurgence.
Into a dark London townhouse walks a timid woman set upon saving her brother’s life, even if it requires her to commit treason upon the country of her birth.
Admiral Chase Randal is intrigued by the new governess in his home and cannot deny that his grieving heart is beginning to awaken as he watches Dominique’s gentle ways with his son.
Yet Dominique faces an impossible choice. Steal Admiralty documents for Napoleon and betray the man she loves or watch her only brother die.
When the Admiral discovers her ruse and follows her back to France, will he be able to forgive her in time to save her and her brother or will they all perish beneath the blade of Napoleon’s henchmen.

Award winning and best-selling author, MaryLu Tyndall dreamt of pirates and sea-faring adventures during her childhood days on Florida's Coast. After obtaining a degree in Math and working as software engineer for 15 years, she decided to test the waters as a writer. With now more than seventeen books published, she makes no excuses for the deeply spiritual themes embedded within her romantic adventures. As a follower of Christ, her stories often reflect her own journey and walk with God. Her hope is that readers will not only be entertained but will be brought closer to the Creator who loves them beyond measure. In a culture that accepts the occult, wizards, zombies, and vampires without batting an eye, MaryLu hopes to show the awesome present and powerful acts of God in a dying world. MaryLu makes her home with her husband, six children, two grandkids, and three cats on the California coast, where her imagination still surges with the sea.

This is such a wonderful movie. Hepburn and Bogart at their best! I highly recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys classic, clean, fun, adventurous movies.

Synopsis:

In Africa during World War I, a gin-swilling riverboat captain is persuaded by a strait-laced missionary to use his boat to attack an enemy warship.
