Summary: (from goodreads) Evelyn Hadley-Attwater has it all—a genteel Victorian life replete with loving husband, ball gowns and elegant parties. She was once "Eve," a spy for England's most enigmatic intelligence agency. Summoned for one final assignment, the excitement of her former life and memories of her mysterious, flirtatious boss "Sir" prove too tempting.

Adrian Hadley-Attwater is a respectable, dignified gentleman. But even the most proper gentlemen have secrets of their own. Secrets from the rest of the world, from their families, from their wives. Secrets that have a price. Now, as a veil of secrecy frays, a tantalizing game of cat and mouse will test the bounds of unfailing love.

Evelyn and Adrian have been married for two blissfully happy years, but the past is catching up with them and about to complicate their union. She had worked as a spy for an agency and thought to have been done with that life, but once a file with delicate information goes missing she is summoned back. Her mysterious and anxious behavior to complete the task, only accomplishes to raise doubts and suspicion of the worst in her husband. Adrian approaches his best friend for help and who now holds the chief position he used to hold in the same agency. Same as his wife he kept it a secret from her and only finds that every time he tries to make things right it goes terribly wrong. The lies and deceits adds to the doubts and put a wedge in between them until they have to save each other from a dangerous encounter.

The author accomplishes this tale of twining lies in a very witty, fun and light hearted romance.
Last but not least, the performance of the audio was great, the voice and accent a perfect match to the time period, very enjoyable and easy to listen to.
