Let the Games Begin! Lord and Lady Spy by Shana Galen is in stores!

Publisher’s Weekly—one of the Top 10 Romance Picks for Fall

Romantic Times
—“Lively, utterly delightful adventure romance. The witty, sexually charged dialogue fuels the rivalry between the realistic characters and sets the pages flying.”—Kathe Robin

Long and Short Reviews-"Ms. Galen spins a good yarn with an action packed story, lots of intrigue and flames between the husband and wife who star in this story." LASR Book of the Week Winner!

Rarely can I pinpoint the inspiration behind a novel to one moment. In fact, most of the time I manufacture an idea out of sheer necessity. But while watching the movie, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, I found myself asking what if?

Yes, that dangerous question that plagues authors.

What if…

What if Mr. and Mrs. Smith lived in 19th century England?

What if they weren’t Mr. and Mrs., but Lord and Lady?

What if they were elite spies for the Crown, rather than assassins, and what if their missions came to an end when Napoleon was finally captured?

What’s an out of work spy to do? And what happens when the one obstacle to getting back into the game is your spouse…

And so Lord and Lady Spy—and the games—begin!

Check out my website for an excerpt and my appearance and blog schedule.

  3. I've ordered it, and will save it for next weekend's guilty pleasure. Congrats on all the rave reviews, and What If this isn't the only pair of out of work Regency spies who need a talented, creative, witty author to embroil them enough mischief to resurrect their chances at a happily ever after?
