Review: Sapphires are an Earl's Best Friend by Shana Galen

She Wants Him...

She Wants Him Not...

Lily Dawson, dubbed the Countess of Charm by the Prince Regent himself, plays the role of the courtesan flawlessly while her real purpose is spying in the service of the Crown. Her mission now is to seduce a duke to test his true loyalties. She'll do it, even though the man she really wants is Andrew Booth-Payne, Earl of Darlington—the duke's son.

Andrew is furious when he finds himself rivaling his father for Lily's attention. When he uncovers Lily's mission, Andrew is faced with impossible choices. It seems he is destined to betray either his family, his country, or the longings of his own heart...

Sapphires are an Earl's Best Friend is the final book of Jewels of the Ton trilogy.  Lily, the Countess of Charm, is not a courtesan at all -- she's really a spy for the Crown -- and her next mission is to find out whether the Duke of Darlington is a traitor or not.  Unfortunately, the duke's only son, Andrew, is the man she's loved for afar for several years. 

Andrew is surprised by Lily's interest in his father, a recent widower.  He's even more surprised when she admits she's in love with him and that his father could be a traitor to England. 

It is Lily who shines in this book.  She's one step ahead of Andrew and always thinking on her feet.  Though his kisses do at times take her by surprise. 

Sapphires are an Earl's Best Friend is a great conclusion to an enjoyable series full of romance, intrigue, and mystery. 

(A very special thank you to Sourcebooks Casablanca and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of Sapphires Are an Earl's Best Friend.)
