A Christmas Code
Lady Gwyneth Beaumont has long awaited the opportunity to show Viscount James Ashworth that she is no longer the impetuous child who dogged his footsteps. Now a much sought-after debutante, she is determined to prove to the hard-headed rake that she is a grown woman and a worthy participant in both the spy game and the game of love.
Ash, recently returned from three years undercover in France in His Majesty’s service, wants nothing more than to complete his final mission and retire to his bucolic country estate. However, what seemed a simple assignment to protect the Prince Regent at a Christmas party turns into a maze of intrigue, desire, and treachery.
Adding to the perilous secret operation is one problem Ash never anticipated: The appearance of the reckless, enticing Gwyneth, who has blossomed into a gorgeous woman and self-appointed spy. When a snooping Gwyneth uncovers a shocking secret, she puts herself in mortal danger.
Can Ash protect Gwyneth and the Prince from French assailants and, at the same time, win the passionate lady's heart?
Can Ash and Gwyneth both triumph as winners in the game of spies and love?
Reese's Reviews:A Christmas Code is the story of Lady Gwyneth Beaumont and Viscount James Ashworth. Gwyneth has been in love with he brothers’ best friend Ash since she was a little girl. Ash wants to settle down and marry Gwyneth but only after his final mission to keep the Prince safe at the upcoming Christmas party. Ash will do anything to keep Gwyneth safe but all Gwyneth wants is to help Ash. When the Christmas party arrives the threat to the Prince may not be the only threat to the young couple.
A Christmas Code was a cute holiday novella filled with love and mystery. Ash doesn’t believe Gwyneth can help him but when she saves his life and puts herself in danger for him he begins to see her as an equal. Gwyneth is an amazing strong character who is very perceptive and wasn’t just one of those girls who “thought” she could help but ended up getting in the way.
Overall a cute holiday story.
