Inevitably A Duchess is a fantastic historical romance by Jessie Clever. Ms. Clever has given readers a well-written book. This is a quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time. Jane's abusive husband died, freeing Jane become Richard's secret lover. When Jane becomes a spy they are linked even closer. Jane and Richard's story is loaded with drama, humor, sizzle and suspense. I enjoyed reading Inevitably A Duchess and look forward to reading more from Jessie Clever in the future. Inevitably A Duchess is part of The Spy Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
