Romance Historical

Secrets prove deadly in this new novel from Tasha Alexander featuring Lady Emily Hargreaves. Some very prominent people in London are waking up to find their doorsteps smeared with red paint, the precursor to the revelation of a dark secret – and worse – by someone who enjoys destroying lives

Newly returned to her home in Mayfair, Lady Emily Hargreaves is looking forward to enjoying the delights of the season. The delights, that is, as defined by her own eccentricities—reading The Aeneid, waltzing with her dashing husband, and joining the Women’s Liberal Federation in the early stages of its campaign to win the vote for women. But an audacious vandal disturbs the peace in the capital city, splashing red paint on the neat edifices of the homes of London’s elite.

This mark, impossible to hide, presages the revelation of scandalous secrets, driving the hapless victims into disgrace, despair and even death. Soon, all of London high society is living in fear of learning who will be the next target, and Lady Emily and her husband, Colin, favorite agent of the crown, must uncover the identity and reveal the motives of the twisted mind behind it all before another innocent life is lost.

Re: A Crimson Warning

I give thanks for my family, friends and my one true love.
(Mary Preston 2:09am November 24, 2011)

I'd like to thank you and all the other writers who keep me so well content with interesting books. Unfortunately, I live in Canada and the only U.S. city I found close enough to drive to, while I still had a car, was Detroit. Once I drove to Hamilton, Ont. with a paralyzed lower right arm and hand to meet one of my favorite authors. Luckily the highway was fairly clear of traffic and I made it safely there and back--though I had to ask someone to open my bottle of Coke for me. I've enjoyed all your books so far and look forward to this one.
P.S. We had Thanksgiving over 6 weeks ago.

I'm thankful to have a roof over my head, and that I get to spend a quiet Thanksgiving in the country, with the person who matters the most in my life - my Husband. We're too far away to get together with family, and this will be a cozy day for us. We'll take some turkey scraps and feed them to the semi-wild mama cat and her two babies who adopted us. They'll be waiting outside of our doorwall later on this afternoon to be fed. This should be a nice treat for them and the babies need their strength to grow. I'm also thankful that we somehow have the means to feed the other wildlife this time of the year. After trying to get back on our feet from losing our house and belongings a couple of years ago, it's been hard, but somehow God is seeing us through. This is the day to truly give thanks for what I now have. Thank you for giving me the chance to reflect, and for the giveaway. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!! Someone as thoughtful as you will do well with your book. The cover is very unique and well done. Can't wait to read it.
