9780062128782: The Forbidden Lady: (Originally published under the title FOR LOVE OR COUNTRY)

Before New York Times bestselling author Kerrelyn Sparks created a world of vampires, there was another world of spies and romance . . .

Virginia Munro could not believe her ears. This bewigged, bejeweled, and bedeviling man was trying to buy her? As if she were some trollop on the Boston docks?

Before she's fully able to give in to her outrage, the fop moves on—and Virginia refuses to spare him another thought.

But Quincy Stanton is not what he seems. By day, he poses as a carefree Loyalist with an army of wigs and a wardrobe that favors lavender. By night, he wages a secret war against the British with an impressive collection of eighteenth-century spy gadgets. If anyone were to discover the truth, Quincy would hang, yet he can't seem to stay away from the lovely and saucy Virginia. Will their attraction lead to love . . . or danger?

About the Author:

Kerrelyn Sparks is the bestselling author of the Love at Stake series, which has hit as high as number 5 on the New York Times list and 22 on the USA Today list. Kerrelyn is honored that her band of merry vampires and shifters is spreading love and laughter worldwide in fourteen different languages.

From Publishers Weekly:

Complete with a colonial, James Bond-type hero and a wealth of gadgets that even Q would approve of a walking stick that doubles as a sword, an egg-shaped submersible and a carriage outfitted with a deadly trap door this 18th-century adventure lacks the intense romantic conflict often found in romantic suspense novels but fills the gap with an abundance of humorous hijinks. When Quincy Stanton, a ship owner and American patriot, returns to Boston after a disappointing visit to his father in England, he is immediately recruited by his Uncle Edward to spy on the English. With very little complaint, Quin dons a purple wig and recasts himself as a loyalist in order gain entry into the homes of prominent loyalists. In one such home, he meets Virginia Munro, who has also taken it upon herself to spy on the English. Although their relationship gets off to a rocky start (he tries to buy her), their attraction is strong, and only the prickly matter of trust stands between them. Meanwhile, Quin must deal with his haughty half-brother, Clarence, who is trying to wrench control of the Stanton merchant business from him. Although Quin and Virginia's bumbling attempts at subterfuge provide plenty of laughs, transparent secondary characters and a pat conclusion keep this from becoming anything more than a comedy of errors.
