Coffee with ColetteGood morning, dear readers! This week on Coffee with Colette, fellow Secret Cravings Publishing author Lindsay Downs has dropped by to tell you about the upcoming Regency Romance, Spy Catcher I can hardly wait until July 30th so I can get my hands on this one - and I know you're going to want to mark your calendars as well! At least Lindsay was kind enough to give us a sneak peek....
~Colette



      All her life Debbi was raised and trained to be a lady’s maid for the daughter of The Duke of Carlisle, Lady Aleece Taylor. Never in her one and twenty years did she question why this happened, until one fateful day.
      Spy Catcher, a Regency romance, is releasing on July 30 from Secret Cravings Publishing.

About Spy Catcher


While acting as chaperone to Lady Aleece at a house party, little does lady’s maid Debbi realize how her life will change.

Not prepared to fall in love nor see a man who bears an uncanny resemblance to her, Debbi’s world begins to turn upside down.

After several attempts on her life, and a run-in with yet another look-alike, she uncovers her true heritage, as the unknown daughter of a countess. Having been raised and trained as a lady's maid, but educated alongside her employer, Debbi begins to wonder in which world she truly belongs.

Only when her new love's life is threatened does Debbie claim her rightful place to do what’s necessary to save him.
Available for Pre-Sale July 30th, 2013,  from Secret Cravings Publishing in all eBook formats. Coming soon to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever fine eBooks are sold.

Excerpt from Spy Catcher


“I still don’t understand about this person claiming to being my husband,” Debbi said taking a bite of toast.
“Mayhap I can answer that particular question for Lady Debbi.” The speaker then set her attention to the Duke of Carlisle. “I pray you will forgive me for this untimely intrusion but I fear the time is right to set the record straight.”
The duke, already having stood when he noticed the lady enter, smiled, nodded then walked over and offered his arm to escort her to where Debbi now was standing.
“Lady Debbi Overstreet, I have the honor of introducing the Countess of Bowes, your mother.”
On hearing the last two words Debbi grabbed for the table, missed and started to collapse to the floor. All that prevented her from doing so was a quick-acting Langdonly who caught her.
With a thank you smile she steadied herself and took her seat.
“But…but I’m an orphan so you can’t be my mother.”
“No Lady Debbi, what the Countess says is true,” the duchess said then glanced over her shoulder to her husband. “Brandy,” she ordered.
Simon walked to the sideboard and poured a little in a glass then slightly diluted it with water. Returning he passed the glass to his wife.
“Here, take a few sips.”
After downing half the drink Debbi peered at the woman, “I still don’t understand, why now and why wasn’t I told years ago,” Debbi paused to glare at the woman claiming to be her mother.
“It was all done for your safety. Now sit while I and Jenelle explain,” the duchess insisted. Then added, “all your questions will be answered, of that I am positive.”
Over the next hour the duchess and countess explained to Debbi why everything had been done the way it was. This time however, Jenelle didn’t leave out how she became pregnant and who the father was.
“Then I must leave now for this monster and his son must not only be stopped but punished for what they’ve done,” Debbi said as she rose, headed for the stairs and her room to change.

About the Author

 

What does it take to be a bestselling author? Determination, skill, talent, luck or taking a risk with a venture into a totally new genre. For me it was a little of some and a lot of the others.

In 2008 when I got two books published I thought it was due to skill; little did I know it was more luck than anything. Over the next three years I wrote, submitted, got rejected. I then did what I tell everyone who asks; I wrote some more. I didn’t give up.

More on a dare than anything I tried my hand at a regency, one of the most difficult genres because of the rules, which I might add I broke almost every one. Within two days of its release the book was on a best seller list and stayed there for two months.

Turns out it is all of the aforementioned.

After two failed marriages, one from divorce while with the other died unexpectedly, I decided upon retirement to move. That opportunity came in September 2012 when I migrated to Texas.

For me, as a multipublished author, it was one of the best things I’ve done to date. Now, every day I can write, creating stories to take my readers to places they can only dream about.

I’m also a member of the Published Authors Network (PAN) by the Romance Writers of America (RWA).
