______________________________________________________________________

Meet Spencer:

Good day, one and all. Let me introduce myself.

I, Spencer Northam, am a young gentleman of good family who, not long ago, had too much time on his hands. That is no longer the case. I have begun an adventurous, slightly dangerous and exceedingly worthwhile endeavor that keeps me well occupied. I am now a spy for the British War Office—this is generally considered a secret. It is a great boon that my duties require the observation of a family within which there is not only a traitor but also a rather charming and alarming young lady. Juliana Telford is quite diverting but I will not be distracted; England must be made safe from Napoleon and I am going to see this mission complete!

Fill in the Blank:

A good time for me is: I enjoy horses, sports and getting into mischief with my good friend Lord Randolph Bobbington. Observing Juliana is not drudgery either… I beg your pardon, I meant the Pyebalds. Yes, observing the Pyebalds.

I’d really rather: Haul young ladies off of cliffs—well, one particular young lady—this is more of a necessity than a desire.

My biggest regret is: Not having learned the skills needed for proper espionage sooner; it is rather difficult to learn while tiptoeing through back alleys.

The best gift I could receive is: Not having much experience with gifts, I am hard pressed to imagine what would best suit me. Perhaps a satchel of disguises—a fake beard or mustache… something in that order.

The last thing I do before I go to bed is: Recount my day’s endeavors, trying to focus on the whys and wherefores of Napoleon’s agent… and not the mysterious antics of Juliana Telford.

If I could be anyone else for a day it would be: Perhaps Bibury—as he has the skills of which I am so desperate to learn. Oh, you might not be aware of whom I speak—an illustration of his talent to stay in the background. In fact, when I think on it, I am not even certain of his first name.

I feel passionate about: Catching the treacherous monster who would sell out his country for money. That such a person can walk on England’s soil makes my blood boil… excuse me. I did not mean to express my thoughts so strongly.

My biggest vice is: My rescuing tendency. Indeed, there is nothing I would like to cast aside more. This ridiculous inclination is so ingrained that, without a thought, I will risk all if I deem a certain young lady to be in danger. Not the best of qualities in a spy… although I would not be stepping into peril to secure the safety of my country had I not this vice… so perhaps it is not a vice so much as a failing—an occasional failing.

______________________________________________________________________

CAnsteyAbout Cindy:

Whenever she is not sitting at the computer, throwing a ball for her dog in the backyard, gardening or reading, Cindy can be found–actually, not found–adventuring around the world with her hubby. She has lived on three continents, had a monkey in her yard and a scorpion under her sink, dwelt among castles and canals, enjoyed the jazz of Beale St and attempted to speak French. Cindy loves history, mystery and… a chocolate Labrador called Chester. Love, Lies and Spies is her debut novel.

One lucky winner will win a finished copy of Love, Lies and Spies!!
(US ONLY)

Love, Lies & Spies

Available April 19, 2016 from Swoon Reads

About this Book:

Juliana Telford is not your average nineteenth-century young lady. She’s much more interested in researching ladybugs than marriage, fashionable dresses, or dances. So when her father sends her to London for a season, she’s determined not to form any attachments. Instead, she plans to secretly publish their research.

Spencer Northam is not the average young gentleman of leisure he appears. He is actually a spy for the War Office, and is more focused on acing his first mission than meeting eligible ladies. Fortunately, Juliana feels the same, and they agree to pretend to fall for each other. Spencer can finally focus, until he is tasked with observing Juliana’s traveling companions . . . and Juliana herself.

    Spencer seems like an incredibly respectable young gentleman. The kind that always attempts to do what is right. In my opinion, his type of character can be fun.
