To Entice a Spy, a story of espionage and unrequited love, by Diane Scott Lewis


Spies, romance, the French Revolution and its effects on England, all mix together in intrigue in my recently released novella.

To purchase, please click HERE

When I traveled in Cornwall a few years ago, in a cozy bookshop I found a book and map of eighteenth century Truro. I set a previous novel in this town but knew I wanted to place another one there, this one a spy story. 

I planned a visit to Truro, but family medical conditions prevented it and I never got the chance to return to Cornwall.

Here is my novel's blurb:

Widowed Countess Eseld Trehearne seeks revenge for the brutal death of her female companion during a Paris riot. On her return to England, Eseld delves into espionage to defeat the French rebels. 

Baron Robert Penhale, Eseld’s childhood love, rejoins the Secret Services after his wife’s death. He’s determined to protect England from the revolution terrorizing France.

 Pierre, a  ruthless French spy, fights for the common man while disguised as an English aristocrat. He’s intent on revenge against those who oppose him.

With the spy stalking them and Robert in fear for Eseld's life, the fate of the couple verges on disaster.

Real life spymaster, William Wickham, makes a brief appearance in my novelWickham was a British civil servant and politician. He founded the British foreign secret service during the French Revolution. I have my hero Robert working with Wickham.

Can Eseld and Robert rekindle their love, or will rules of 'protocol' (he a mere baron and she a countess) keep them apart? Each must find their own way through heartbreak and the risk of murder that hangs over them. Is Pierre right in his demand for equal rights? Or is he just out to kill aristocrats, and seduce Eseld in the process? 

Will love be enough to mend the differences between Robert and Eseld? She wants no man to command her.

Review from Novels Alive: "The dastardly villain ramps up the suspense and is exposed during a thrilling conclusion. This sweet Regency (Georgian, actually) romance ties up all the loose ends effectively. To Entice a Spy is a delightful light romance with a dose of suspense to keep it interesting."

Never Dance with a Marquess has a Crowned Heart review from InD'tale Magazine! 

“Never Dance With a Marquess”

takes the reader on a journey

through the psyches of both

Nicholas and Carrie. The

characters of Carrie’s teenaged

brother and sister are endearing

although their antics could easily

prove to be fateful to them or

others. Some scenes are slow, but

picks up the pace deeper into the

story. One gets emotionally

involved as Simon Leeming tries

to usurp Nicholas’ authority, and

Simon shows his true character.

All the characters are three

dimensional and easily relatable.

The world building is excellently

executed, and one finds

themselves immersed in the

1800s, living with the mores of

the times. A truly outstanding tale

of romance between an unlikely

hero and heroine! Ms. Andersen

delivers a beautifully orchestrated

story destined for the ages!
