This is one of my absolute favorite couples…
I really love it when hate turns to love!



Who is the charmer?

Collis Tremayne could make any female swoon; 
yet no one would guess the hidden desperation 
that drove him to become the most skilled spy in 
service to the Crown. All that stand in his way is…
Rose Lacey, the first female Liar and a confounding 
chit who manages to outsmart him with cunning and 
courage. She is the only woman he cannot melt 
with his smile. With every breath, he wishes he 
had never laid eyes on her. And with every flash 
of her green eyes, he craves to possess her…

Rose Lacey fought hard to meet the challenges of 
becoming a spy for the infamous Liar’s Club. And 
if it weren’t for Collis Tremayne, who manages to 
make her blood boil with his arrogance and leave 
her breathless with white-hot longing, she’d achieve 
her dream. Now, they must work together on a 
secret mission to uncover a dangerous plot–one 
in which the very safety of England hangs in the 
balance. Armed with wit and wiles, they must face 
deadly intrigue, clever enemies, and if they can 
manage not to murder one another–the intoxicating 
lure of unbidden passion…

romance starring two fabulous antagonists.”

“Top Pick!”
—Romantic Times Bookreviews

accent Under the covers:

“The idea for this book actually came from my friend 
Jennifer Smith, an excellent writer herself. Liars in 
love–two trainees, competing and clashing, until they 
must acknowledge their real, hidden feelings. How 
great is that? I also really enjoyed finally going into 
the Liar Academy begun by the characters in The 
Pretender to find out how the whole thing was 
coming along. And then there was Collis, sexy 
roguish wry Collis, who lived through three entire 
books playing his part patiently until he was allowed 
a story of his own. 
Okay, maybe he wasn’t exactly patient…”

accent Portraits of our lovers:


Collis Tremayne–reluctant heir to the Etheridge title and fortune.

A façade of carefree charm hides a darkness that few understand. Wounded in the war against Napoleon, Collis may never recover full use of his arm.

His musical ambitions in shambles, what’s to become of a handsome wealthy man with too much on his mind and entirely too much time on his hands?


Rose Lacey was a battered housemaid until she was freed 
from her servitude by the Liar’s Club. She owes them 
everything and she has pledged herself to become the 
first woman Liar.

Unfortunately, her training would go much more smoothly 
if it weren’t for the interference of a certain handsome 
trainee, highborn Collis Tremayne, who makes everything 
harder than it ought to be. When their conflict threatens 
the very foundation of the Liar’s Academy–and the cellar 
and the kitchen–Collis and Rose are sent on a mission of 
their own with the orders, “Get along or get out.”

Rose knows she can accomplish the mission on her own, 
if that damned aristocrat would just get out of her way–
until the Prince Regent gets dragged into the adventure 
and everything goes entirely, horribly wrong…
