Spies…True Spies by Shana Galen

There’s something sexy about a spy. There’s the whole secret identity thing, the dodging bullets thing, and the shakes martinis. So when readers asked for more spy books after Lord and Lady Spy, I was happy to oblige with True Spies. I couldn’t wait to dive into Winn and Elinor’s story.

In a nutshell, Winn is an elite spy. Elinor, his wife of 14 years, has no idea. She’s not too happy to discover his deception, especially when she’s been seeking some intrigue of her own.

So what makes a great spy?

A great outfit?






A signature drink?



A cool gadget?



A cocky grin?




Check out my trailer for True Spies then tell me what quality you think defines a great spy. One person who comments will receive a copy of True Spies (U.S. and Canada only).

  7. Ha! Love this post. I'd say an ability to make effective decisions under great stress makes a good spy.

    No need to enter me in the giveaway--I already own TRUE SPIES and loved reading it. Thanks for a marvelous story.

  9. Congratulations Shana, on the release of "True Spies". I enjoyed watching the trailer.

    I think a few good qualities for being a great spy are discretion, stealth, awareness of their surroundings, the ability to adapt to any given identity, and the capability of being able to disappear at a moment's notice.

  16. Its the protecting thing. The loyalty too. But unfortunately, the loyalty thing often doesn't get applied to their families until its almost too late. But apart from that, its just that they have no bounds when it comes to protecting what they love.

  19. krazymama, that's exactly what Winn has to learn. Maybe in real life a spy wouldn't make such a great husband/mate.

  20. Sounds like a great new release, Shana!! Okay, I love James Bound, cool, and calculating and sooo hot. Get Smart??? She has the smarts. LOL :) But in really good spy stories, there's all that UNDERCOVER work. :)

  22. I think that ability to be a chameleon and to think fast on one's feet is essential for a spy.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  23. I like the ability to disappear, or to blend into different surroundings. Congrats on the release of Tue Spies.

  24. I think the quality that defines a great spy is an ability to play a character and sell it no matter what, thinking on their feet to adapt to changing situations.
