Tour: The Marquess Meets His Match by Julie Coulter Bellon

The Marquess Meets His Match by Julie Coulter Bellon.
Audience/Genre: Historical Fiction, Mystery, Clean Read.
Publication: August 15th 2019 by Stone Hall Books.
A traitor with a deadly plan. Two agents sent to expose his identity before he strikes. But danger is closer than they think . . .

Lord Christian Wolverton―known as Wolf in a covert group operating during the war against Napoleon―has been called home from his military duties. For the moment, his family responsibilities require him to suspend his more clandestine activities. But information falls into his hands that a traitor will soon try to tip the scales back into French favor and Christian doesn't have much time to stop it from happening.

Going to the one person who can help him, the powerful Duke of Huntingdon, Christian comes face to face with Lady Alice. She's a beautiful member of the ton with a very big secret―she's also a trained agent and already on the case. Forced to partner with her to lure the traitor out of hiding, Christian wants to quickly close the case himself, before Lady Alice is more closely involved. But Lady Alice has ideas of her own and she's going to prove her theories correct―with or without him.

Danger is closer than they think, however, and it's a race against time to expose the traitor's identity before British lives are endangered. Both Christian and Alice have strong opinions on who he is, but which one will be proven right and can they catch him before it's too late?

First of all this book got me out of a reading slump. I opened the book and didn’t stop till I was done. I haven’t done that in a while. The mixture of historical fiction/romance/romantic suspense/mystery was the perfect combination to keep me interested! I suppose having a female bada** is what helped too! She was a future girl living in the past. She wasn’t dainty at all but she still had her proper self!! I wanted to know who the bad guy was and why! I had ideas but I was sooo wrong! I loved it!!

The romance was just right and it showed how sometimes you have to have faith and trust in the other person and not get distracted in what needs to be done. Lord Wolverton at first didn’t care to find Alice to be a spy. But he grew to trust her. And Alice still somehow kept herself from reproach and knew her stuff. They both had skills that complimented each other and together, they got the job done.

I really really loved this book. I just haven't had a book to keep me fully engaged lately. But I couldn't stop once I opened it up! It was full of action, adventure, mystery, intrigue and a touch of romance. I just can’t really describe enough of why I loved it!!

If you like historical fiction, post war problems, stories of mystery, finding out who the bad guy is, loving families, women who are spies, knife skills, horseback riding, people having good instincts, and finding love than this might be for you! As for me, it’s on my to read and reread list!
