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.


Sophie Atherton is working undercover as a medium.  The man she is working for is suspected of being involved in the deaths of several  men who are close to the queen.  Her job is to find out who is responsible for the murders.
Professor Gavin Stanwyck  has returned from his adventures in Egypt to find a good friend is believed to have committed suicide.  That,  he will never believe unless he was driven to it by the unscrupulous medium he was seeing.
A grand adventure for our heroine and an intriguing Victorian romantic suspense.  A mystery for us to solve and grave danger for our protagonists.  This is part of a series but easily read as a stand alone.  It will fascinate you from first to last page.
I loved it.

Award-winning and 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.
