For the Love of a Spy: The Scrivener & the Handyman
In an era electric with possibility and peril Maris Graystone, political
writer, and Michael Kinder, CIA troubleshooter, meet under oddly
conventional circumstances. Despite the instantaneous sparks,
they both sense there is more to their relationship than physical
Their love affair intensifies against the backdrop of the dramatic
world events of 1991-a disintegrating USSR, Middle East peace
talks, and Vietnam’s reemergence on the world stage. Michael
appears and disappears at unpredictable moments, leaving Maris
limp and lovelorn. Looking for safe harbor for both her emotions
and her body, she welcomes the advances of a dashing French
diplomat, Émile de Canalon, who whisks her off to France.
Will she embrace the luxury and comfort of Émile and his chateau
or the romance of international intrigue with Michael?
