A determined sister . . .

Madeleine Vernon’s dreams should be filled with elegant gowns and marriageable men. Instead, she dreams of avenging her brother’s death. But when she’s captured by the queen’s men, she’s forced to become a spy by her mysterious yet undeniably attractive captor.

A rakish spy . . .

After years of working for his father in Queen Elizabeth’s service, Nicholas Ryder is close to going his own way. But now he’s got a feisty beauty he must protect or risk her execution as a traitor to the crown. She’s a distraction he can’t afford, but he also can’t stop thinking about her.

A dangerous lie . . .

It is Nicholas’s job to foil plots against Elizabeth, and he sends Maddy into a household of suspected traitors to garner what information she can. As the line between captor and prisoner blurs, deceit, betrayal, and desire become a perilous mix. Ultimately, Nicholas must decide whether duty to the queen is more important than winning Maddy’s heart.

About the author

Pamela Mingle

Pamela Mingle is a former teacher and librarian who was fortunate enough to choose writing as a third career. Or maybe it chose her. :) She loves to create romantic tales that play out against historical events and always includes humor in her books. Pam and her husband enjoy walking in the British Isles--even though she's done her share of whining on the longer days. The walking trips have been an ideal way to discover new settings for her books. Pam's newest book, A LADY'S DECEPTION, releases in August, 2017. Along with A FALSE PROPOSAL, it is part of the Haslemere Men series with Entangled Publishing. Readers can find Pam’s previous books on Goodreads and Amazon.
