In which a lady and a law clerk find themselves entangled in the scandal of the season...

Miss Lydia Whitfield, heiress to the family fortune, has her future entirely planned out. She will run the family estate until she marries the man of her late father's choosing, and then she will spend the rest of her days as a devoted wife. Confident in those arrangements, Lydia has tasked her young law clerk, Mr. Robert Newton, to begin drawing up the marriage contracts. Everything is going according to plan.

Until the day Lydia is kidnapped-and Robert along with her. Someone is after her fortune and won't hesitate to destroy her reputation to get it. With Robert's help, Lydia strives to keep her family's good name unsullied and expose whoever is behind this devious plot. But as their investigation delves deeper and their affections for each other grow, Lydia starts to wonder whether her carefully planned future is in fact what she truly wants...

Fans of Georgette Heyer will delight in this YA Regency romance from Cindy Anstey, author of Love, Lies and Spies.

Editorial Reviews

Duels & Deception:"Jane Austen fans in need of a good new book, look no further. Cindy Anstey's new YA novel, Duels & Deception, is your next regency romance treat." -Entertainment WeeklyLove, Lies and Spies:"It's Jane Austen meets Jane Foster in Anstey's debut novel, which serves up a delightful combination of Regency romance, scientific curiosity, and spy intrigue for a tale that will have readers rooting for love and science." -Entertainment Weekly"A great recommendation for teens who are not quite ready to tackle the complex language of Austen's classics. . . . A cute premise and cover make this a solid purchase for budding historical romance readers." -School Library Journal"Love, Lies and Spies is an adorable little romp in Regency-era London, perfectly-paced and delightfully entertaining. It had me grinning from ear to ear, cover to cover. And the best part of all is that it seems to be a stand-alone with none of those ridiculous miscommunications. It really was just a pleasure to read!" -The Starry-Eyed Revue"Fantastic romance that I fell completely in love with. The amazing characters and intriguing mystery will make this a big hit with all YA regency fans!" -Dark Faerie Tales"I never want it to end. I cannot tell you how much I love this book. Juliana, Spencer, Bobbington, ALL of them are just so utterly wonderful. This is BETTER than Georgette Heyer. YEP, I SAID IT. It even reminds me of my absolute favorite--the regency romances by Jude Morgan. . . . Just wonderful!" -Kelly Zekas, co-author of These Vicious Masks
