A Dangerous Collaboration

By Deanna Raybourn, Narrated by Angela Masters

I’m late to discovering the genius that is Deanna Raybourn. My first book with her being A Curious Beginning, the first of the Veronica Speedwell series, but I have since devoured all of her books I can find. While I was awaiting A Dangerous Collaboration, I discovered the Lady Grey series, another example of a strong female character worth reading.

Intrigued by Stoker’s sybarite brother, Lord Templeton-Vane, who claims to have access to a rare butterfly for Veronica’s atrium. She agrees to go with him to visit an old friend, Malcolm Romilly. But upon the Cornish Isle, Veronica and stowaway, Stoker, learn it is not just a house party or the butterfly that gained them their invitations.

Tasked with uncovering the mystery of Malcolm’s missing bride, Stoker and Veronica must discover the truth before becoming the next victims.

Raybourn brings readers to the edge of their seats, holding their breath and turning the pages as we rush to discover what will happen next. This series is great for anyone who loves historical thrillers and exciting intrigue. It’s not exactly a romance but there are romantic elements. It appeals to both my romantic and adventurous sides.


I write suspense with a hot romance and a southern accent. I like strong characters with attitude and charm. Heroines who can rescue themselves and heroes who aren't afraid to love them.
