A Tip of the Cap ~ Review

A Tip of the Cap
London League #3
By Rebecca Connolly

Malcolm Colerain, Earl of Montgomery, finds himself in a most unenviable position. Two years ago he lost his beloved wife and finds himself in need of a new wife, one who will provide stability and security for his children should he lose his life while in service to the Crown. As a member of the London League, Cap, as he is known to his fellow operatives, is feeling the tightening noose of danger as the French threat grows. Malcolm (aka Monty) knows that his second marriage will be one without affection and one of convenience only for the sake of his children. He could never love another as he loved Caroline.

Elizabeth (Beth) Owens is the youngest of ten children who is in need of employment. She has a way with children and is soon to seek a position that could call upon her skill. She never thought her ease with children would lead to a marriage prospect and to an earl at that. Going into the marriage she knows that love is not a possibility but she never thought that she would be so drawn to the man she now calls husband.

Monty doesn't have time for marriage as he has a duty to thwart and discover treasonous threats posed by French sympathizers. To his consternation, his League colleagues couldn't disagree more with him. Fretting about all he can't be doing Monty soon discovers just what a rare woman he has married. But when tragedy strikes Monty finds his loyalties and his heart torn when he is needed at home and in London.

This is the third book in the London League series and this one the most focuses on the personal life of one of the League members. If you haven't read the two previous books you will be able to easily get into this book with no problem, though you'll surely want to enjoy them at a later date.

Fans of Rebecca Connolly's previous works will enjoy this newest work. If you've never read her before this is a good one to start with. Get ready to take a step back in time with some Regency era intrigue with a dash or two of romance sprinkled in.


About the Book:
With Cap in hand…
Malcolm Colerain, Earl of Montgomery, needs a wife. He has four children, a peerage, and a demanding secret occupation as a member of the London League; all of which give him a fulfilling life, so a proper marriage of convenience is all he seeks. But when he meets Elizabeth Owens, things begin to change. Distance becomes difficult, convenience becomes rather inconvenient, and his exciting life as a spy turns on its head.
…Love comes to call…
Beth Owens seizes the chance to marry the handsome and striking Earl of Montgomery, marriage of convenience or not. Her heart is his for the taking, and she is determined that he eventually will. But the more she learns about her husband, the more he puzzles her. He has secrets, she is well aware, but just how many and how deeply do they run? And when she finds a few secrets of her own, will they ever have a chance at love?
