Full of humor, English Regency charm, and starring a whip-smart strong female heroine, this hilarious homage to Jane Austen will “have readers rooting for love and science” (Entertainment Weekly).
Juliana Telford isn’t your ordinary nineteenth-century lady. She's more interested in publishing her research on ladybugs than in marriage or fashionable dresses. Spencer Northam isn’t your ordinary nineteenth-century gentleman. He’s a spy for the War Office on his first mission. But when Spencer’s assignment involves keeping an eye on the lovely Julianna and her friends, their plans for a season without romance are unapologetically foiled.
Love, Lies and Spies by Cindy Anstey is a debut novel with the perfect mix of romance, action, and adventure, chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads.
