What the Scot Hears

England 1814: She is an outspoken American with a questionable past and a dubious purpose. He is on the hunt for a traitor.

Mrs. Amelia Chase is a highly-opinionated American woman on the run from her past with a penchant for self-preservation and a healthy love for Shakespearean insults. She’s faced her share of tragedy but has always carried on without a doubt of her success. Until now…when she finds herself alone in a foreign country, giving the performance of her life…

Lord Alaistair MacLeod is an agent for the Crown and a man with secrets. He doesn’t speak of them, he doesn’t dwell on them, and he certainly doesn’t let them define his future. Much. One thing is for certain, he definitely doesn’t share his confidences with a peery, outspoken American woman who is obviously trouble, acts highly suspicious, and is far too nosy for her own good… And he’ll do anything to protect his friends from would-be traitors.

Can he trust enough to embrace such an enigmatic woman? Can she awaken the passions of such an intensely private man?

Love is…

Revenge? Because what else’s a girl supposed to do when she learns the man she loves has found himself a bride?

Probably found himself a bride.

All right according to rumor found himself a bride.

Really, what else could have kept him away for eight solid months? Gambling? He was awful at cards. The Theater? He hated the opera. A political position in Parliament? Ha!

No, No, and hell, No.

Regardless of his excuses, Jamie Ferguson (the Disloyal-er) was not going to get away with throwing over Wilhelmina Rutherford (the Disloyal-ee) for anything or anyone, especially some nameless London tart.

Ergo, revenge and a cunning-nothing-could-possibly-go-wrong-here plan:

  1. Run Him to Ground
  2. Make Him Squirm
  3. Show Him You’re Indifferent
  4. Let Him Brood
  5. Enlist Reinforcements to Your Cause
  6. Show Him What He’s Missing
  7. Tell Him Goodbye

What could possibly go wrong?

In the first Covert Heiresses novel, a governess with a desire for revenge enters into a marriage of convenience with a duke with more secrets than she anticipated…

SHE WANTS REVENGE…

When bluestocking Vivian Loren becomes the governess for the wealthy Spencer family, she’s searching for clues about the murder of her brother, not a husband. But Vivian didn’t count on James Spencer, the infuriatingly handsome Duke of Abermont.

HE NEEDS A WIFE…

As head of Britain’s elite intelligence agency, James has no time to woo a wife. When he discovers Vivian’s quest for answers has made her a pawn in a treacherous plot, James realizes they can help each other. She’ll become his duchess, and he’ll keep her safe from one of Napoleon’s deadliest spies.

What begins as a marriage of convenience quickly becomes anything but, as they find out love is the most dangerous mission of all.

Genre: Historical Romance – Regency Romance, Historical Romantic Suspense

Series: Covert Heiresses, Book 1

Release Date: October 5, 2015

“Monroe creates an entertaining albeit slightly dark world filled with spies, humor, wit, intrigue, suspense, and an emotionally rich romance. Though heavily character driven, Monroe does a wonderful job of balancing the dynamic characterization of her characters with a story rich in details and plotlines.” –Smexy Books

“Filled with intrigue, danger, spies, loss,grief, secrets, passion, engaging characters, to say the least and of course romance, passion and finally finding love amongst grief and angst…feisty, dangerous and courageous females makes this a not to miss series.” –My Book Addiction

“A quick moving espionage subplot coupled with liberally peppered humor, introspection, kindness and simmering attraction adds to the momentum of this novel. Showcasing this author’s writing talent and marvelous imagination I Spy a Duke could easily be called I Spy a Great Read!” –Jenerated Reviews

“I get as giddy as a schoolgirl when an Erica Monroe Historical is going to be released! Ms. Monroe always makes the time period and the British settings come alive with the glorious details that she provides. And then her characters are so engaging: serious, vulnerable, and loyal.” –Lightning City Book Reviews

Excerpt:

********In this excerpt, after an encounter with James the night before, Vivian has second thoughts about having accepted the governess job under false pretenses.********

She was a terrible person.

She had to be. Because only a truly terrible person would sit there for an hour with the Duke of Abermont, listening to him pour his heart out, and still lie to him.

Vivian could almost still taste the brandy on her tongue from the finger they’d taken together last night. To survivors, he’d said, but she didn’t feel like a survivor. The life she’d known—the stability she’d once prided herself on—had disappeared the night she’d had to identify his mangled body in the coroner’s office.

Smoothing a hand down her walking dress, she took a seat on a bench in the rambling garden of the Abermont estate. A few paces in front of her, her young charge Thomas Spencer squatted down on the ground, picking up various small pebbles that made up the rocky path. Every now and then, he looked back at her, as if needing confirmation that she was still there. As if somehow, even at the tender age of five, he still could sense that her time here was limited. That she was poised to flee at any moment.

This was all a ruse, and she had no right to dream about it becoming permanent.

***Part of a cross promotional sale with Emma Locke (The Trouble With Being Wicked), Christina McKnight (Hidden No More) and Kirsten Blacketer (The Jewel of Winter) who also have titles for $0.99 during this time.***

 

Drama-free zone.

Yes! I’m 100% behind this…

Rosanna Leo

I see it all over social media these days. People, many readers, in particular, are shouting, “No drama, please!” I’m inclined to agree.

I’m not talking about good drama, the kind that fuels great books. I’m talking about the sort of melodrama one might find on a reality TV show. Social media has become a dumping ground for bad sentiment. Person A develops a beef with Person B and immediately vents on Facebook or Twitter.

In some cases, Person A has been justified. There are some nasty sorts out there. It’s only natural we get riled up and our friends want to show support. That’s a good thing.

Nevertheless, it can get out of hand. There are those who grow weary of seeing their feeds littered with negativity. In many cases, a negative comment can lead to a positive movement, something many of us witnessed recently in the romance community…
