Loving her would be his downfall…


To society, the Earl of Blackstone cuts a mysterious figure. He is eligible, withdrawn, and endlessly fascinating. Yet as an integral part of London’s underground spy ring intent on defeating Napoleon, Blackstone has no mistress but the cause.


Miss Emily Mirren is considered “unbiddable” by the ton. She wields a fierce intellect, which she channels into her own secret cause—writing an abolitionist newspaper column under
a male pseudonym.


When Emily’s aims clash with Blackstone’s, they stray into a dangerous game of attraction and subterfuge, and secrets are the going currency. And in order to complete the most important mission of his career, Blackstone must thwart Emily, even if it breaks both their hearts.

Review

"...a triumphant story of love and loss." ~ The Reading Cafe
 
Yes! Finally, a book that really surprised me! My main complaintfor years now has been that in the first few pages I can generally see exactlyhow a narrative will unfold and what tiny twist on the generic formula theauthor will take. But here, in The Miss Mirren Mission, I willadmit that I didn't see the twist coming until it was smacking me in the faceso wonderfully I exclaimed aloud! ~ Kate's Book Club
 
There's lots of adorable and funny banter and flirting...It kept me reading, avidly, way past my bed time. ~ Don't Be Afraid ofthe Dork

There is a mental checklist I have of tropes I love to see in a historicalromance and the author must have had a copy of this list because she captured everything I love about this genre. A spy for the crown - check. A wounded warveteran hero - check. A smart and feisty virgin heroine - check. Loyal comrades of the hero - check. An English country estate - check. Shenanigans at this estate that could result in ruination - check. A surprise twist to the ending - check. With all of this going for her, and a fast moving and entertainingplot, there wasn't really anything I wasn't going to like. ~ Maria Rose at Geeks in High School

Well, I must say I’m very fond of Ms. Holiday’s writing style. I’ve really enjoyed reading this historical.

I think it follows her previous works “theme” of the anti-commitment, emotionally stunted H who can’t help it but fall for the quirky, irreverent but still lovable h.

In this instance Eric (A... ...more

Historical Romance was my first love in reading, back when I had to swipe my Mom's paperbacks off her nightstand and read them in secret. Over the last few years I have drifted away from this genre, or to be fair, I have gotten pickier about what historical romances I read, but every now and then... ...more

Usually I am very wary about picking up a romance novel I know nothing about. It's a genre that I am quite picky about so I try to be selective. Then on an average day I got a wild hair, as one sometimes does, and requested The Miss Mirren Mission from Netgalley and Lo and Behold... I LOVED it! S... ...more

I really liked the first half of this book. It was a slow burn between the two main characters, Emily and Blackstone. The characters are well developed and their motivations were very clear.

This story shattered my heart to pieces. It was a magnificient read that I couldn't believe their story has ended. I stared blankly for a time because I think I won't get over this easily. The story clearly moved me emotionally. Anyone can write but not everyone has the talent to transcend strong... ...more

This was a very fun romance. Emily is on her way to becoming one heck of a bluestocking, and she's proud of it. She reads about anything and everything - which I always like in a character - and it's given her a unique perspective on quite a few things. She's also a reformist. She wants to abolis... ...more

OMG this book. I really, REALLY enjoyed it.

First: Great writing. Sharp dialogue. Everything is just so well-executed and flows naturally.

This novel was a gem I wasn't expecting. Not only was I pleasantly surprised by the characters, but I loved the story line.

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Jenny Holiday

Jenny Holiday started writing in fourth grade, when her awesome hippie teacher, between sessions of Pete Seeger singing and anti-nuclear power plant letter writing, gave the kids notebooks and told them to write stories. Most of Jenny's featured poltergeist, alien invasions, or serial killers who managed to murder everyone except her and her mom. She showed early promise as a romance writer, though, because nearly every story had a happy ending: fictional Jenny woke up to find that the story had been a dream, and that her best friend, father, and sister had not, in fact, been axe-murdered. From then on, she was always writing, often in her diary, where she liked to decorate her declarations of existential angst with nail polish teardrops. Eventually she channelled her penchant for scribbling into a more useful format. After picking up a PhD in urban geography, she became a professional writer, and has spent many years promoting research at a major university, which allows her to become an armchair astronomer/historian/particle physicist, depending on the day. Eventually, she decided to try her hand again at happy endings--minus the bloodbaths. You can follow her twitter accounts @jennyholi and @TropeHeroine or visit her on the web at jennyholiday.com.
