Shana Galen: Lord and Lady spy, True spies ja Love and let spy

Shana Galen tarjoaa kolme Bond-elokuvien juonista mallia ottavaa tarinaa, joissa yhdistetään romanttista viihdekirjallisuutta historiallisiin vakoilukuvioihin. Kerta-annos tämän tyyppistä romaania vielä menettelee mutta saman idean toistaminen moneen kertaan menettää tenhonsa nopeasti.

Lord and Lady spy (Sourcebooks Casablanca, 2011; ISBN 978-1-4022-5907-4)

No man can outsmart him, but she's been outsmarting him for years. Lord Adrian Smythe may appear a perfectly boring gentleman, but he leads a thrilling life as one of England's most preeminent spies, an identity so clandestine even his wife is unaware of it. But he isn't the only one with secrets.

Now that the Napoleonic wars have come to an end, daring secret agent Lady Sophia Smythe can hardly bear the thought of returning home to her tedious husband. Until she discovers in the dark of night that he's not who she thinks he is after all.

True spies (Sourcebooks Casablanca, 2013; ISBN 978-1-4022-7602-6)

A lady torn between truth and lies...Lady Elinor Keating, a wife and mother for the last fourteen years, fears all the passion and romance has gone out of her marriage. She contemplates an affair with a rakish spy, only to be thrust into a world of intrigue and treachery.

Love and let spy (Sourcebooks Casablanca, 2014; ISBN 978-1-4022-9173-9)

England's last hope in finding and destroying a French spy ring before they can infiltrate England's foremost operatives, Jane Bonde, the best agent the Crown has to offer, is forced to choose between love and duty when her current mission puts the life of her fiancé in great danger.
