Sophie Ashcroft and Teddy are two endearing secondary characters in my February release, Checkmate, My Lord. Throughout the story, you get a sense of their enduring friendship and budding love, despite their class differences. Of course, what is a great love story without a heroic end? Sorry to be a tease, but Teddy’s daring deed is one of my favorite scenes in Checkmate. Enjoy!

Mama said I should write to you and thank you for attending my 7th birthday celebration and for that other thing we can’t talk about. I really enjoyed hiding beneath the table with you and watching the adults chatter about. Well, except for that time when Mama was searching for me. I think I scared her a little. Anyway, I hope you’re enjoying the archer from Dragonthorpe Castle. He’s one of my favorite pieces. It’s too bad about his broken arrow, but that’s what that bad man gets for—um, being bad.

We’re off for London tomorrow, where Mama promises I’ll see all sorts of horses. I asked Mama if you could come with us, but she reminded me about your sick mama and about how much Guinevere depends on you. I do wish I could take Guinevere with me. I’ve wanted to ride her in Hyde Park for years.

Maybe you could come with us next time. Now that Mama is going to marry Bastian, we’ll be traveling to London often.

Do you want to go fishing tomorrow morning, before I leave?

Your forever friend,

A desperate mother falls in love with the spymaster she’s forced to betray.

Catherine Ashcroft leads a quiet life caring for her precocious seven-year-old daughter, until a visitor delivers a startling ultimatum. She will match wits with the enigmatic Earl of Somerton, and it's not just her heart that's in danger.

Spymaster Sebastian Danvers, Earl of Somerton, is famous for his cunning. Few can outwit him and even few dare challenge him--until now. After returning to his country estate, his no- nonsense neighbor turns her seductive wiles on him--but why would a respectable widow like Catherine risk scandal for a few passionate nights in his bed?
