Book Cover: The Gentleman and the Spy: A Victorian MM Romance
Part of the Ormond Yard Romantic Adventures series:

After his father’s death Lord Magnus Dawson has more important things to think about than falling in love—like how to earn a living when all he knows is the idleness he was raised with, and the military training he received before selling his commission. For Toby Marsh, the impetus is as great, though he doesn’t have Magnus’s family connections to fall back on. A scholarship student at Cambridge, he was forced to spend his last year in college as valet and sometime tutor to a brainless fellow student after his father’s sudden death. Now he scrabbles out a living as a freelance tutor. Then a call from the Foreign Office brings them together. Toby disdains the idle lordling, and Magnus can’t seem to treat Toby as more than a servant. As they delve deeper into their assignment, the attraction between them grows. But can they envision a future together when class and culture conspire to drive them apart? The Gentleman and the Spy is an 83,000 word Victorian-era lord and valet romance with a country house party and a touch of espionage and international intrigue.

Neil S. Plakcy has written an extraordinary novel in what is an entirely new Victorian era historical genre for him. As always, Plakcy has created a wonderful cast of characters with two principals who could not be more different - Lord Magnus Dawson, the third son of a duke, and Toby Marsh, a struggling young tutor in Cambridge who had to drop out of university following the death of his father.

Moving through a variety of settings - Martindale House, the sprawling Dawson family mansion in the Cotswolds, to Cambridge, to the British Foreign Office, and to a hunting party at Rexham Castle where a French diplomat is the guest of honor - Magnus and Marsh grow closer to one another as they endeavor to discover the identify of a murderer in their midst.

For me, the absolute best thing about ‘The Gentleman and The Spy’ is that while this is a more than satisfying stand alone read, it definitely opens the door to a potential new series of books from Mr. Plakcy. I for one can’t wait to read more!
