Finishing school failed to turn them into proper society ladies. Now these four friends vow to remain single until they find suitors worthy of their love and devotion . . .

Betrothed to a man she has barely met, Lady Faith Landon calls upon her three best friends—the self-proclaimed Wallflowers of West Lane—to help uncover the secrets of her mysterious fiancĂ©. Her suspicions are aroused when she learns that he has recently returned from France. Is he a traitor to his country? The truth is quite the opposite. Nicholas Ellsworth, Duke of Breckenridge, is a secret agent for the English Crown who has just completed a risky mission to infiltrate Napoleon’s spy network.

After his adventures, Nicholas craves the peace and quiet of the country and settling into domestic bliss with his bride. Until he discovers Faith’s deceptive investigation. How can he wed a woman who doesn’t trust him? But a powerful spark has ignited between Nicholas and Faith that could bring about a change of heart. Faith seizes her second chance to prove to Nicholas that they are a true love match but his past catches up with them when three French spies come to exact revenge. Surviving rather than wooing has become the order of the day.

A few of your favorite things: my husband, my cats—Molly Cat and Simon, my daily planners (I use several and am a bit of a planner freak), my books and even though there are too many, I’m probably never going to donate more of them. 

Things you need to throw out: I always keep clothes too long and really need to weed out my closet. The same goes for old paperwork and tax stuff. I got rid of a lot of shoes when we moved and I’m not going any further or there will be tears.

Things you need in order to write: my computer, my plotting planner, my computer glasses. 

Things that hamper your writing: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Simon (cat), and my phone. LOL

Things you love about writing: the escape into another world. I love the dreams about that world. I love to bring my stories to readers and to hear what they think of the stories. 

Things you hate about writing: it can be very solitary and isolating. But, I have a great life.

Easiest thing about being a writer: coming up with new things to write about. The world is full of inspiration. 

Hardest thing about being a writer: getting past the mental obstacles and plot holes. It can also be hard to carve out time when no one in the family needs me, but that’s getting easier.

Things you love about where you live: Southern Missouri is beautiful. The people here are really nice. The weather is mostly good. We built a new home and I adore it. We have good friends here. There are a lot of wonderful things to do (when there is no Covid-19).

Things that make you want to move: my mom lives back east, and she’s getting pretty old now. That is hard.

Things you never want to run out of: coffee, wine and mascara. 

Things you wish you’d never bought: those flip flops made from a yoga mat. LOL

Favorite foods: Italian food, spinach, cucumbers (I eat almost anything).

Things that make you want to throw up: tomatoes and beets.

Favorite beverage: Ginger Ale (usually as a mixer). 

Something that gives you a pickle face: tomato juice.

Favorite smell: lilacs.
Something that makes you hold your nose: mildew.

Something you’re really good at: I’m a good cook, and I am great at growing house plants. 

Something you’re really bad at: I have no sense of direction. NONE! I get lost all the time. Thank goodness for GPS.

Something you wish you could do: play a sport at the highest level or play a musical instrument well.

Something you wish you’d never learned to do: clean stains in carpet. I’m really good at it and so I’m called upon quite often.  

Things you’d walk a mile for: a New York bagel with cream cheese and lox. 

Things that make you want to run screaming from the room: anything with raw tomato.

Things you always put in your books: hope, love, strong women characters, men who are smart enough to love strong women, hard times, dark pasts.

Things you never put in your books: glorified violence, though some of my books do have violence, it is always to show the resilience of the character.

Things to say to an author: I loved your book.

Things to say to an author if you want to be fictionally killed off in their next book: I have a great story, you should write it. (Because, if you have a great story, YOU should write it.)

Things that make you happy: my cats, though I wish they would get along.

Things that drive you crazy: mean people. I never understand random malice.

Most daring thing you’ve ever done: I moved to the Netherlands by myself.

Something you chickened out from doing: two years earlier, I said no to moving to the Netherlands.

The Earl Not Taken


A.S. Fenichel (Andrea) gave up a successful IT career in New York City to pursue her lifelong dream of being a professional writer. She's never looked back.

Andrea adores writing stories filled with love, passion, desire, magic, and maybe a little mayhem tossed in for good measure. Books have always been her perfect escape, and she still relishes diving into one and staying up all night to finish a good story.

She is currently writing Regency romance for Kensington Publishing, and you can learn more about Andrea's books at or visit her on her Facebook page

, where she spends entirely too much time.

Originally from New York, she grew up in New Jersey, and now lives in Missouri with her real-life hero—her wonderful husband, and a fussy cat. When not reading or writing she enjoys cooking, travel, history, and puttering in her garden.
