WHEN A LADY DARES is book two of Her Majesty’s Most Secret Service series, however, I read it as a stand-alone. The setting is late Victorian era.
Sophie Atherton has gone undercover to investigate some mysterious deaths for the Herald. Gavin Stanwyck wants to find out the story behind his friend Peter Garner’s mysterious death. And they mesh beautifully, the chemistry is great.
Equal parts romance, mystery and suspense, add in the hints of humor and this is a great read. The plot is compelling and quite riveting and it will propel you page after page wanting to know what will happen next.
Award-winning and Amazon.com best-selling author Tara Kingston writes historical romance laced with intrigue, danger, and adventures of the heart. A Southern belle-out-of-water in a quaint Pennsylvania town, she lives with her real-life hero and a pair of deceptively innocent-looking cats in a cozy Victorian. A former librarian whose love of reading is evident in her popping-at-the-seams bookcases, she’s thankful for the invention of digital books, thereby eliminating the need for yet another set of shelves. When she’s not writing, reading, or burning dinner, Tara enjoys movie nights, cycling, hiking, DIY projects, and cheering on her favorite football team.
