When A Lady Dares by Tara Kingston

They must
tear down their defenses and learn to trust their hearts.


WHEN A LADY DARES
Her Majesty’s Most Secret Service #2
Tara Kingston
Released May 15, 2017
Entangled Select Historical

Sophie Atherton knows a liar when she sees one. Perhaps because she’s so skilled at deception herself. Searching for clues to a string of mysterious deaths, the secret operative for the Crown has connived her way into a phony medium’s confidence. When a dashing archaeologist seeks out the charlatan’s services, Sophie suspects he’s after more than a long-lost heirloom. Their electric attraction storms her defenses, but loving the rakish scholar would threaten her investigation and the life she’s crafted.

Gavin Stanwyck is a man on a mission. Masquerading as a treasure hunter to trap the spiritualist, he’s drawn to the medium’s enigmatic assistant. As treacherous forces close in, passion awakens his hardened heart—he’ll protect Sophie at all costs, but he cannot give her his love. Uniting to survive a sinister plot, they must tear down their defenses and learn to trust their hearts.

 
Award-winning
and Amazon.com best-selling author Tara Kingston writes historical
romance laced with intrigue, danger, and adventures of the heart. A Southern
belle-out-of-water in a quaint Pennsylvania town, she lives with her real-life
hero and a pair of deceptively innocent-looking cats in a cozy Victorian. A
former librarian whose love of reading is evident in her popping-at-the-seams
bookcases, she’s thankful for the invention of digital books, thereby
eliminating the need for yet another set of shelves. When she’s not writing,
reading, or burning dinner, Tara enjoys movie nights, cycling, hiking, DIY
projects, and cheering on her favorite football team.

Happy Holidays! I love everything about this season: the reason, the music, the happiness that seems to flow even from my grumpy friends and relatives. It brings me back to my childhood and the wonderful Christmas shows and musicals that we watched on our little black and white television. Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, and Charlie Brown. The list goes on.

So what or who is your favorite Christmas character? A random commenter will win a set of 4 Kurt Adler icicles.

WIN A KINDLE OR NOOK OR A $25 GIFT CARD

Unknown.jpeg GARDENING TIPS Unknown-1.jpeg

I live in the country and rabbits are the thorn in my side. Although adorable, they play havoc in my garden. I have found a couple ways to keep those pesky critters from my flowers. First, I plant marigolds. They don’t like the smell. When I deadhead the marigolds, I sprinkle the seeds from the old flowers around the rest of my flower bed. Not only does it help keep the rabbits out, but I often get free-growing plants the next year.

I also put bright pinwheels in my flower beds. They seem to frighten the bunnies with their constant movement and add some colorful fun to the landscape. What tricks do you use to keep the critters away? (Humane answers only, please.)  Or tell me your favorite spring or summer flower.

Leave your email address in the comments so when Dianne verifies you hit each stop, she can contact the winners.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.                        ~ Helen Keller

Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable.                                               ~ Henry Ward Beecher

Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.                     ~ Aristotle

If you want to live, you must let go of the past…

Twenty-eight-year-old psychologist, Alisha Dimarchi, is abducted by an obsessed client and imprisoned in his Pakistani compound for over two years.

It is then that he is visited by a stranger, who informs him that his wife is very much alive and needs his help. In a desperate attempt to save her, David enlists the help of a Delta Force Operative. Together they find themselves in the center of more than just a rescue mission.

Reviews for The Second Wife:

Kishan Paul’s writing shines in this beautifully written psychological thriller filled with heart-gripping emotion as the heroine unearths an inner strength she didn’t know she possessed. – Cait Jarrod, bestselling author

“The Second Wife is a poignant story of love, domestic violence, and mental strength. It grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go until you’ve finished the last page. No wait, it doesn’t let go at all… I had the pleasure of betareading it, and the wide range of emotions it stirred in me are still right under the surface.” – Lea Bronsen, award winning author of The Perfect Shoot

“This is a gripping story, brilliantly woven from start to finish. I’ll never forget Ally. She’s as real to me as anyone else because her story isn’t some forgettable fictional work. No way you are walking away from this one the same way. I actually took a break between this novel and my next one. I wasn’t ready to begin another journey just yet. Amazing work, Kishan Paul.” – Kristen Shanchez, reader
