BEHIND THE MARQUESS'S MASK
The Lords of Whitehall #1

Even

the mask of an expert spy is no defense against his own heart.


With a reputation as dark as his

appearance, Greydon Sharpe, the Marquess of Ainsley, ought to have been the
last agent assigned to the daughter of a well-respected Member of Parliament.
However, when she is brutally attacked and left for dead, it becomes clear he
is the only one with the skills to keep her alive. All it will take are a few
lies to keep her breathing long enough to capture the villain. Then he can send
her on her way. If she would only behave herself, he might be able to complete
his mission before she turns his contentedly miserable life into a chaotic
mess.


Marriage

is not an option until it is.


Lady Kathryn Bryant, the

adventure-seeking socialite, has no plans to behave. Kathryn would much rather
spend her time in subterfuge, nabbing villains and finding clues. However, when
her memory is lost in an attack, she has little choice but to trust the
handsome Marquess. Though she is almost certain he is hiding something, she is
helpless against his disarming smile and warm touch. Eventually, his lies will
come to the surface, leaving only one question: Is England’s deadliest spy
equipped to save a broken heart?

He stopped short a few feet from her, and every inch of her insufficiently clad body came into focus. She was dressed for bed with her auburn hair plaited over her shoulder.
“You understand what I do, then.” Grey began unbuttoning his shirt at the neck. “Good. Now I can brag about my exploits. Do you know the worst part about being an unsung hero? It’s the unsung bit by far.”
“You lied to me,” she accused, those blue pools glaring up at him.
“I would be a sad excuse for a spy if I were honest,” he returned, swallowing the self-disgust. His fingers moved, deftly unfastening the buttons halfway down his chest. “I hope you appreciate the lengths I went through. I have dragged you out of a myriad of sticky situations, but this is the first time I have ever had to marry you to keep you alive.”
Her eyes narrowed as her hands fisted in her lap.
“A simple ‘thank you’ would suffice,” he suggested.
By the time the last word was out of his mouth, Kathryn had flung herself off her chair with her arm raised.
The prickly thing was about to strike him.
Grey caught her wrist then grabbed the other just in case she had similar ideas in mind for that one. Then she was wriggling to get free, bringing the pea-brain in his trousers to attention. It was frustrating. He hauled her into him, pinning her arms to his chest, and wrapping his tightly around her. It stopped the wriggling, but now she was glaring up at him with those giant, blue pools a man could drown in. He could feel every curve of her luscious body except where her little fists were pressed against the ugly scar peeking out from the opening in his shirt.
Pea-brain was suddenly the only brain he remembered having.








Kristen has always had a love of novels, with a special place in

her heart for historical romance. After reading enough of them to fill a rather
impressive library, she decided to write her own. Now she has the pleasure of
writing at home, tucked away in a forest with her husband, two children and her
cat. Her husband is loving, and impressively patient, her two beautiful
children strive to embarrass and exhaust her, and her cat hates everyone, but
tolerates—well, she tolerates whoever will feed her.
