about

Full of humor, English Regency charm, and starring a whip-smart strong female heroine, this hilarious homage to Jane Austen will "have readers rooting for love and science" (Entertainment Weekly).

Juliana Telford isn't your ordinary nineteenth-century lady. She's more interested in publishing her research on ladybugs than in marriage or fashionable dresses. Spencer Northam isn't your ordinary nineteenth-century gentleman. He's a spy for the War Office on his first mission. But when Spencer's assignment involves keeping an eye on the lovely Julianna and her friends, their plans for a season without romance are unapologetically foiled.

Love, Lies and Spies by Cindy Anstey is a debut novel with the perfect mix of romance, action, and adventure, chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads.

Praise for Love, 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 tongue-in-cheek nod to Regency romances, Anstey's lighthearted novel is perfect for readers looking for an Austen-inspired tale of intrigue and romance. The story gets an additional boost from Juliana's many humorous scrapes, which are unbefitting of a nineteenth-century lady. This would make a nice companion for Garth Nix's farcical Newt's Emerald." -Booklist

"Give to young teens in need of a fluffier Patrice Kindl's Keeping the Castle. . . . A cute premise and cover make this a solid purchase for budding historical romance readers." -School Library Journal

"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." -Kelly Zekas, author of These Vicious Masks

It had some of the very best of what I like in Regency novels, including a plot twist (or two!) and a happy ending. I couldn't put it down!" -Leslie Moon, reader on SwoonReads.com"The characters are well fleshed out, the dialogue believable and the plot engaging. I feel as though I took a vacation in Regency England, so real did that historical period seem as it leapt from the pages. The attention to detail is amazing. But what I really appreciated was the laugh-out-loud moments." -Deborah, reader on SwoonReads.com"A wonderful read with a lovable quirky heroine. Just what I needed for thrills and entertainment over the holidays!" -Christine Sarah, reader on SwoonReads.com
