Grey Sommers, Lord Wyndham, never met a predicament he couldn’t charm his way out of. Then a tryst with a government official’s wife during a bit of casual espionage in France condemns him to a decade in a dungeon, leaving him a shadow of his former self. Yet his greatest challenge may be the enigmatic spy sent to free his body—the only woman who might heal his soul.

Cassie Fox lost everything in the chaos of revolution, leaving only a determination to help destroy Napoleon’s empire through her perilous calling. Rescuing Grey is merely one more mission. She hadn’t counted on a man with the stark beauty of a ravaged angel, whose desperate courage and vulnerability thaw her frozen heart. But a spy and a lord are divided by an impassable gulf even if they manage to survive one last, terrifying mission….

At long Last! (Saturday, May 26, 2012)
Reviewer: Kathy Jund

Mary Jo Putney brings us another installment in her Lost Lords series with the highly anticipated release of No Longer A Gentleman. In an attempt to reunite all the Lost Lords, James Kirkland continues on his own personal mission to find the missing member of their elusive group; Grey Sommers, Lord Wyndham the heir and future Earl of Costain who mysteriously disappeared while in France trying to gain information (for James), during the battle between England and France over ten years ago. Kirkland, who is still trying to live with the guilt that plagues him to this day, refuses to believe his friend who was so full of life can be dead. Having been provided with new hope as part of a bargain with a captured French spy, Kirkland sets off to enlist the help of his most successful agent and spy; Cassie Fox. (We readers were introduced to Cassie’s skills in the previous installment in the Lost Lords series “Nowhere Near Respectable”! In an effort to determine whether the rumor surrounding a young blonde Lord held prisoner in a castle dungeon belonging to a devious high-ranking official at the Ministry of Police named Claude Durand, Cassie is willing to forgo the danger to find the truth. Cassie fears the clue to be false but wants to put Kirkland’s troubled mind at ease and finally hoping provide the proof confirming whether Wyndham is alive or dead. Cassie’s greatest fear however, if the tip proves true and she does find Wyndham alive, after ten years of being held prisoner there are no guarantees this Lost Lord will be the friend Kirkland once knew.

Lord Wyndham, Greydon Sommers, never dreamed that his dalliance would cause him to lose ten years of his life. He spent those ten years in a dungeon, alone and barely hanging on to sanity. Determined to keep himself from going completely mad, he worked out and sang. When he'd all but given up hope of ever seeing England again, Cassie enters his life. A spy working for his friend Kirkland, she was sent to check out information that he was still alive. She caught just the right time too, because the master of the castle was gone and his staff gravely ill. Cassie swoops in and rescues Grey. During their time together, they fall in love, but because Cassie believes she is not up to Grey's standards, she walks away. Then things change.


This book was fun, romantic and sexy. I enjoyed the fact that the female lead got to be the hero in this book. She certainly deserved it. I think more books should use the female lead as the hero. The story behind this one isn't a common boy-meets-girls story. It includes some very forward thinking for the time period. I know you'll want to spend a weekend with this book. It takes you on a trip to the past but includes some intrigue. This is a must have book.


I didn't find anything wrong with this one.


I gave this one 5 out of 5 books because of it's forward thinking.
