Publisher's Summary

From The New York Times bestselling Jane Feather, author of To Kiss a Spy and Kissed by Shadows, comes a deliciously sensual tale of intrigue and temptation…
The last thing Lord Nicholas Kincaid expected to see in the gloom of a London tavern was a vision of loveliness. And when she led him to a bedchamber with a come-hither smile, there was no question of resisting - until he realized the lying wench meant to render him senseless so the landlord could rob him blind! That's how the handsome lord made the acquaintance of Miss Polly Wyat, a ravishing beauty he soon decided would make the perfect spy. Unwittingly, she would infiltrate the inner circle at the king's court. But when Nicholas sets out to bind Polly with chains of passion, he'll find himself hard-pressed not to be bewitched…or to fall in love.

Romantic and Refreshing! Beautifully Narrated

If you could sum up Venus in three words, what would they be?

Compelling, Romantic, Complex.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Polly. She was intelligent and insightful. I loved her passion and resilience. Her transformation was very believable and the direction of her actions/reactions all made sense while never losing grip of the romantic fantasy.


Have you listened to any of Gemma Dawson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes! She is a wonderful narrator. This is a more subtle example of her work, I listened to one of the other 'v' books before this one (out of the order of sequence, which didn't make a difference as the stories are completely independent from on another in this series) and her character voices were bigger and bolder, this is the first book in the series so I imagine they got better and better as she narrated them all. Her voice has a pleasant musicality to it, and a beautiful tone. I always seek out and enjoy her performances.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Romantic Regency Rags to Riches!
