About the Author

I live in a quiet, historic town where the only exciting things to happen occur in books. Most days, you can find me with a cup of tea in one hand, hunched over my laptop as I write, read, or research.

By 1806, Britain is enmeshed in a gruesome, disheartening war with the tyrant Napoleon Bonaparte. Every able-bodied man is begged to do his duty, even the young Duke of Tenwick. The Scandals and Spies series follows the Graylocke family and their friends as, one by one, they are pulled into the war to spy for Britain—and lose their hearts in the process.
