Miss Charlotte Allston is unwittingly ensnared in a sinister web of traitors and spies when she is literally swept off her feet by a handsome stranger on the beach. Fiercely determined to redeem his honor after a humiliating military defeat, the Earl of Beckport is living incognito, hunting a band of smugglers at the center of a French plot to invade England. 

The enigmatic Miss Allston instantly becomes a person of interest to the earl...and not just in the smuggling case. Passion flares swift and hot between the two. But when her attempts to help with his secret mission only endanger it, he must question where her loyalty truly lies.

Stunned by the sudden revelation that the woman he is falling for is the daughter of a notorious smuggler, Beckport feels duty-bound to report her. But then Charlotte is captured by the very traitor he's after, forcing the earl to decide between redemption...and love.


Miss Charlotte Allston is being punished by her mother for an indiscretion.  She has to take someone with her every time she leaves the house.  Luckily her aunt is not so strict.  A very surprising meeting on the beach certainly gives her something to take her mind off her broken heart. 
Rafe Pomeroy,  Earl of Beckport is staying incognito in a seaside village.  He is determined to restore his battered reputation by catching the local smugglers who may be helping a traitor. 
Our hero seems to be an accident waiting to happen.  Our poor heroine keeps coming off the worst at each disastrous meeting. 
Lots of laughs mingled in with an intriguing story.  All of our characters are lots of fun.  A very entertaining romance.  I loved it.

Elizabeth Keysian is an English archaeologist, teacher and museum curator. She first started writing "long stories" when her headmaster father needed something to keep her quiet during school summer holidays. In her teenage years she produced angst-ridden poetry, slightly disturbing sketches for an amateur dramatics group and even her own magazine, to the mixed delight and consternation of her friends.
After completing her History degree, Elizabeth joined an English Civil War re-enactment group, messed about with the Middle Ages and finally settled to an enjoyable reconstruction of Tudor Daily Life at Kentwell Hall in Suffolk.
Her imagination was further inspired by living for seven years on a Knights Templar estate, with a garage full of skeletons, a resident ghost and a moat teeming with newts. She now lives near Bath with her partner and cats.
Elizabeth likes to keep her historical novels atmospheric and authentic, with both tears and laughter along the way. She loves to hear from readers.

Her debut novel for Entangled Publishing is Distracting the Duke, Book #1 in the Wayward in Wessex series. Keep an eye out for Book #2, Unmasking the Earl, due out in May 2017. Both books are part of the Scandalous Imprint and can be read as stand-alones.
