Lady Anastasia Whittig is a true lady in every sense-and an absolute master at code-breaking. She has never operated in the field, yet I feel confident this beautiful, talented agent can triumph in the face of even the most dire peril.
Her mission: Working with master spy Lucas Tyler, she must expose the mastermind who is attempting to bring down our secret organization. She must maintain a strictly professional relationship with the admittedly attractive Tyler throughout, for even a hint of scandal could compromise their operation.

Excerpt from Desire Never Dies by Jenna Petersen
The crash jolted Anastasia Whittig out of her concentration. She blinked, pushing her spectacles up the bridge of her nose as she looked at the ceiling with pursed lips. What in the world were the servants doing up there, teaching each other to dance? She hated interruptions, especially when she was so dratted close to finding the key to this latest invention.
Glaring at the stairs that lead from her secret workroom to the main floor above, she returned her attention to her efforts.
The second crash made her jump. It was followed by more pounding feet and, to Ana's surprise, the door above her stairway flew open. Normally, the servants knew better than to invade her private area, so for them to open her door, without even knocking, was an indication that something serious was afoot.
A maid came down two steps. Her cap was crooked and her eyes wide and wild. Ana cocked her head.
"What in the world is it, Mary? I'm in the middle of--"
The girl panted, fear painted across her face in pale colors. "Lady Allington, my lady, she--she--"
The bottle of kerosene in Ana's hand slipped free, hitting the floor with a crash that she hardly heard above the sudden rush of blood roaring in her ears. Lady Allington was her best friend, Emily Redgrave, mistress of the house they shared. She was also a spy.
