Celebration X 3? Does that mean it’s more mysterious?

Of course. Smugglers, Spies, and Secrets.

On this day in 2015, M.A. Lee launched her professional writing career with the publication of her first three novels.

A Game of Secrets

Smugglers, secrets and spies: Kate tries to hide in plain sight; Tony tries to catch a spy. First they fall in love, then they fall into trouble with smugglers. Will they survive?

Kate Charteris never expects to become a damsel in distress. This army-brat orphan is no damsel wh

o faints at the first sight of a dragon-like trouble.

Hunting Napoleon’s spies, Tony Farraday falls hard for a chance-met damsel not quite in distress. Circu

mstances part them; fate reunites them at a run-down inn on the English coast, the lair of smugglers who are helping the French spies.

Will the smugglers end their dangerous game of secrets? Or will both Kate and Tony be caught in a watery trap when the smugglers sail for France? Have they both lost this Game of Secrets?

Self-made financier Rafe Lockhart needs a titled wife. A quick marriage to Lady Margaret Symonds, widow of an earl, seems the answer to his problem. Her beauty and wit sweeten his plan.

After an abusive marriage, Maggie Symonds swore off husbands, yet financial difficulties force her to accept Rafe Lockhard’s proposal.

Neither expects passion to fire up their marriage. Yet even as they discover each other, two blows deal wounds to their blossoming love.

Two Hearts Crossed by Circumstance

Falling in love with his employer’s daughter Connie is not Roger Denby’s biggest mistake. No, his first mistake was giving her a passionate kiss.

Deal in the Unexpected ~ a courtesan and two rakes, all out for mischief … and murder, bloody and foul.

This Game of Hearts turns more dangerous than Rafe & Maggie and Roger & Connie ever anticipated.

Enjoy A Trio of Games.

M.A. Lee says, “These three novels launched my indie writing career in 2015. I’ve always enjoyed reading the books of Georgette Heyer and Victoria Holt, Jane Aiken Hodge and Daphne du Maurier. Writing this Trio of Games gave me just as much enjoyment. I hope you also enjoy them.”
