The Schoolmaster's Spy (Winsford Green Book 3) Kindle Edition
With Bonaparte defeated, King’s spy, Captain Mark Dexter is furious at being sent to investigate the latest headmaster of his old school rather than a smuggling ring on the south coast. Things look up considerably when he realises that the schoolmaster he admired above all others, Felix Brook, is still there. The man who listened to him, the man who cared about him, the man who is still out of bounds. With only half an eye on the job, Dexter inadvertently puts Felix in an extremely compromising position. The mission goes catastrophically wrong, leaving Felix to bear the brunt of the repercussions. With his commanding officer after his blood, and Felix running from him, Dexter is desperate to put things right.
Felix Brook, schoolmaster, is devoted to Hestingley’s school and its pupils. His life is quiet and unremarkable, but When Mark Dexter turns up at an Old Boys’ dinner, he turns Felix’s life inside out. In the decade since he last saw him, the wild, unpredictable schoolboy has become a devastatingly attractive man. Felix can scarcely believe it when Dexter makes his attraction clear, it’s like a dream come true. Until it all goes wrong.
Reluctantly thrown together at the Winsford Green annual Summer Fete, Felix and Dexter attempt to piece together what happened, rebuild trust, and deal with the searing passion that still burns between them. When the truth is finally revealed, Felix must not only prove his innocence, but hold tightly to love as Dexter’s world crumbles beneath him.

Alien Office spy Mark Dexter is everything I want in a book boyfriend. He’s principled but capable of doing what needs doing if it means protecting the State.
He’s a little bit battered by life, the youngest son of a Viscount who always hated him because he wasn’t his actual father, he’s had a lonely and somewhat wild life.
The only comfort he found was at boarding school where Felix Brook was one of the few schoolmasters who took notice and cared enough to engage him in his education.
Felix is an absolute gem of a man. There isn’t a huge age gap between them, Felix was a young schoolmaster at Hestingley’s, but he’s so shy and hides his passions away – until Dexter comes back to an Old Boys event while investigating the new headmaster.
I won’t go into the plot, suffice it to say it absolutely worked for me, the trickery, intricacies and careful way the narrative unfolds is a headrush, filled with adrenaline and adventure.
Both Mark and Felix have the very things which make them who they are tested – Dexter’s loyalty and Brook’s role as an educator – and for a while it looks like there will be no way out.
But Ruby skillfully manipulates the story so that all ends up with a race to the truth and an ending which is firmly grounded in the realities of life in 1815 for two men who love men.
An absolutely wonderful return to Winsford Green and now please can we have the Major and Mr Edwards’ story and what’s going on with the Marquess of Winsford and Dexter’s boss at the Alien Office Ruby?!
Spies, smuggling and general skulduggery involving those damn Frenchies 😉 together with plenty of apologies from various members of the aristocracy and two MC's who didn't have an awful lot of experience of trusting people, and really deserved their HEA. Will we get a story about Simon, Marquis of Winsford and Hesseldon? The Major and Mr Eldridge? Great catching up with Joe and Arthur and Mrs Dandridge/Miss Buttle from People Like Us. Loving this series.
