A Dangerous Spy. An even more Dangerous Governess. 


“So tell me, Miss Jones, why should I employ you as governess?”

A question to rouse fear within the breast of any prospective governess, unless…she wasn’t a governess at all.

Yet Amelia must secure this position by whatever means necessary as this gentleman, dubbed The Scandalous Hugh Cadwalader by fashionable society, is not all he seems. Behind the elegant finery and azure eyes is a dangerous warrior of a man, a tenacious spy for the Crown.

One who might just have turned traitor…

“Just one more question, if I may…”

With her perfect references and perfect demureness, Miss Jones appears…perfect.

Feminine guidance and distraction are required for his inquisitive ward while Hugh Cadwalader hunts a traitor in the alleys of London’s Rookery.

But can such perfection be all it seems? And was that a glimpse of golden fire within those amber eyes?

The Dangerous Spy and… The More Dangerous Governess.

One should never judge a governess by her perfectly forged references or a spy by his unblemished Hessian boots, for behind both facades lay passion untamed, subterfuge unbound and a quest for justice.

A battle of wits with only one winner… Love.

With theatres of glister and glamour, nights of shadow and menace, hairpins of poison, and…being pressed to a desk by a shirtless masculine chest, the vocation of governess has never been so perilous – to the heart.

The Scandalous Hugh Cadwalader first features in Book 2 of this series, A Governess Should Never… Deny a Duke. This is his story.

Contains sensual scenes.

Miss Amelia Jones needed this governess job more than anything, but not in the typical way you would think. Miss Jones was no ordinary governess she wasn’t a governess but a spy for the crown. She was hired to spy on Mr. Hugh Cadwalader, whom the home office had suspicions he was a traitor. So, after strategically getting rid of two governesses who were scheduled to interview and making a bargain with the third, to provide lesson plans in exchange for her salary, Miss Amelia began her post as governess for Hugh’s daughter Phoebe. Her pupil Miss Phoebe who was 15 years old was a sad and lost young girl who had lost both of her parents, and it was her father’s death that led Hugh into a private investigation. Claimed as a suicide, he knew better, no, he knew his good friend was murdered and he would leave no stone unturned until he found the truth. It’s not long before Amelia and Hugh begin falling in love through a series of tantalizing events. But will their blossoming love last the truth when their true identities and secrets are revealed?

Emily Windsor is an amazing storyteller. She takes you back in time to Regency England and weaves the reader along the streets of London where the smells, sounds, sights, and even the tastes come alive. Her novel is so historically accurate you truly feel like you are there. Also, her characters have such depth and are fully well-rounded that you know them intimately and want them to survive all obstacles and for Hug and Amelia to fall in love and sweet Phoebe to know what truly happened to her parents and find the young woman she’s truly meant to be. Truly one of the best historical romances of the year!

About the Author

Regency Romance with Warmth, Wit & Well-tied Cravats.

Emily grew up in the north of England on a diet of historical romance and strong tea.

Unfortunately, you couldn’t study Regency slang, so she did the next best thing and gained a degree in Classics and History instead. This ‘led’ to an eight-year stint in engineering.

Having left city life, she now lives in a dilapidated farmhouse where her days are spent writing, fixing the leaky roof, battling the endless vegetation and finding pictures of well-tied cravats.
