Hi everyone! Thank you, Maria Grazia, for hosting me today to help spread the word about my re-release of Undeceived: Pride and Prejudice in the Spy Game. It’s the story of a unique Elizabeth and Darcy, CIA officers in the last years of the Cold War. He’s arrogant and standoffish—and heroic and handsome, of course. She’s bright and sparkling and naïve at the beginning, and learns from her mistakes with the grace we’ve come to expect from Elizabeth Bennet.
Undeceived is available now for preorder on various ebook platforms and will be 0.99 cents for the first 30 days after release (until 8/22/19.) The print version is in the works and will follow shortly after the ebook release.
Part of the story takes place in Hungary—in Budapest, and around Lake Balaton. Sadly, I’ve never had the pleasure of visiting Hungary, but while writing Undeceived I spent some time studying and learning about it. Part of that research led to this playlist of Hungarian music, which I thought I’d share with you today.

...if I endeavor to undeceive people as to the rest of his conduct, who will believe me?
-Pride & Prejudice, Chapter 40
Elizabeth Bennet, a rookie counterintelligence officer, lands an intriguing first assignment—investigating the CIA's legendary William Darcy, who is suspected of being a double agent.
Darcy’s charmed existence seems at an end as he fights for his career and struggles against his love for the young woman he doesn’t know is watching his every move.
Elizabeth’s confidence dissolves as nothing is like she planned—and the more she discovers about Darcy, the more she finds herself in an ever-tightening web of danger.
Unexpected twists abound in this suspenseful Cold War era romance inspired by Jane Austen’s classic tale.
