Romance Historical | Romance Suspense

A Deadly Game of Deception

Notorious and beautiful, Vidia Swanson works as an "angel," trying to coax incriminating secrets from powerful men who may or may not be traitors of the Crown. Her latest target is suspected of stealing gold from Wellington's troops, but matters take an alarming turn when Vidia realizes that her spymaster thinks she is the one who is tainted—a double agent working for Napoleon.

Backed into a corner, she can only hope to stay one step ahead of the hangman in a race to stop the next war before it destroys her—and destroys England. Tainted Angel offers up a compelling game of cat and mouse in which no one can be trusted and anyone can be tainted.

Re: Tainted Angel

I love spy stories and would love to get the opportunity to win your book! I love to read a book then write a review, thank you!
(Nicole Laverdure 2:32am June 6, 2013)

Spy stories are so interesting! Thanks for the contest - your
book sounds great!
(
Dianne McVetty 3:28am June 6, 2013)

The spy is ultimately selfish, out to survive and evade capture, finding whatever information or item he has been told to get. So love life is a temporary thing as far as he is concerned - or she!

I love spy stories. And I never heard the term "angel" used the way you are using it in your book - a first for me. You book sounds totally intriguing. Thanks for a chance to win. Best of luck with the book - it sounds like a real winner.

(

Well, you caught me from the mention of James Bond. I'm a huge fan of his and he's the ultimate Alpha. I think we all harbor that little bit of wishing we could be the woman he absolutely can't live without.

Love your premise and the cover!
(
Tamara Hunter 10:34am June 6, 2013)

Exactly, Tamara! Although usually the woman he can't live without winds up d-e-a-d. :)
