As a reader and a writer, I’ve always had a taste for historical romantic suspense. When I’m writing a story that blends a love story with a mystery, I love working out the plot and the character arcs for the hero and heroine. In When A Lady Deceives, the first book in the Her Majesty’s Most Secret Service series, a daring undercover journalist risks everything when she falls for a dangerous man with secrets of his own. I loved writing the heroine, Jennie Quinn, and pairing her with a hero who’s courageous enough to intrigue this strong, smart woman, an enigmatic man who may be one of the very criminals she’s determined to bring down.
Here’s a little about the story:
In Victorian London, reporter Jennie Quinn employs deception as a weapon. Going undercover to seek justice for a murdered informant, she’s drawn into a powerful criminal’s seductive game of cat and mouse. Enigmatic former lawman Matthew Colton is as dangerous as he is clever, but the passion in his kiss is too tempting to resist. She aches to trust him, but she will not abandon her quest for the truth.
Colton is a man with secrets of his own. Thirsting for vengeance, the disgraced Scotland Yard detective has infiltrated the criminal world he’s vowed to destroy. Jennie intrigues him, even as she breaks down the barriers around his heart. He yearns to uncover her secrets—in and out of his bed. Driven to shield her, he’ll risk everything to protect the woman whose love heals his soul.
