About the Author

I am the author of The Romancing the Spies Series. When I am not writing, I am spending time with my family. I love reading books on lazy afternoons and late into the night. Anytime really. Married twenty-nine years to the love of my life, we have three wonderful children and two sweet grandbabies. Besides writing, I have always wanted to travel. In the last few years, we have gotten our passports stamped in England, Scotland, and Ireland. We are hoping to add Italy to the list soon. My debut novel is Rescued By the Captain.

Whom Shall I Marry.. An Earl or a Duke? Is that a rhetorical question? When the man is Alexander Langley, the Duke of Sheffield, I think the choice is already made! That is if he asks her when he finds out who she was pretending to be in those passionate moments. When Lady Sophia Turlington, hidden behind a mask, was in a brothel waiting for her friend Lady Sydney to secretly meet Alex's friend, who should come into the room? Oh yes Alexander himself who she despised with a passion. What happens next is a surprise to both of them! Alex is mesmerized by the courtesian with the beautiful violet eyes who will not speak, but he is drawn to her so strongly. Phee is shocked when he comes to kiss her and the sparks begin to fly, oh yes...He does not know who she is and she gets carried away... But what can come of it? Laura Barnes has written a spellbinding story that pulled me into with her wonderful characters who just could not resist their attraction. Their's was a meeting of the heart that knew what it wanted and could not help but try to bind them. But what will happen when Alex finds out she is Sophia? They had been social enemies and always at opposite sides of every discussion. This story had a little of everything to make it a must read! Cannot wait for the next story by this author! Lori D

A wonderful historical romance. This is my first book by Laura A. Barnes and I loved it. The characters are wonderfully charming and the storyline is fresh and flows nicely throughout the pages. This story captured my interest from the very beginning and kept it engaged to the end. I would love to read more by this author.
