Coming soon! Book #4 of Dangerous Lords
Governess to the Duke’s Heir
Andrew, the Duke of Harrow, has returned to his Oxfordshire estate after years away in Vienna on a diplomatic engagement. He left England after losing his beloved wife in childbirth.
But his children consider him a stranger, and the new governess disapproves of him.
In hope of restoring his family, he has invited a German baroness who may become the new Duchess of Harrow, and her brother, as his guests.
Andrew’s plans do not go to order. Were there three attempts made on his young son William’s life, or are they a string of amazing coincidences? Why would anyone want to harm William? Andrew finds himself working with the governess to discover the truth while keeping his son safe, and disconcertingly, comes to depend on Miss Harrismith, as his respect for her deepens.
When the truth finally becomes clear, Andrew faces his feelings, but then finds his chance of happiness snatched away.
Miss Jenny Harrismith, the daughter of an impoverished baron from Yorkshire with six children, leaves home after a disagreement with her father, taking a position as governess to the Duke of Harrow’s two children. After a year at Castlebridge, when the duke barely makes an appearance, she has found a certain peace, and become very fond of her charges. But the duke has arrived home to stay, and suddenly, there is no peace to be found.
Frightening things begin to happen. As she fights to keep the duke’s son safe, she finds herself falling in love with his father.
Thrust into danger, and coming close to death, she realizes she must face the truth of what she left behind in York.

The game changes.
Determined to find his friend’s murderer, Strathairn faces a new mission – has the treasonous Frenchman, Count Forney, returned to wreak havoc? It is believed he drowned escaping England years ago. Or, worse… is there a new plot afoot to drive the people to revolution?
Lady Sibella Winborne has remained single well past her first season, despite several offers of marriage.

He has found the perfect suitor, Lord Coombe, but Sibella doesn’t warm to him. Is it because she harbors a strong affection for a blond-haired gentleman? Strathairn makes every other man seem ordinary. While she wants to set up her own household and have children, she can’t give up on Strathairn. When they’re together, the air sizzles. But does he look at every woman the way he looks at her?

THE MARQUESS MEETS HIS MATCH
Available in Paperback!
Read FREE on UNLIMITED or buy for $0.99!
A sexy Georgian Romance as only bestselling author Maggi Andersen can deliver!
A country-bred girl, Kate Bancroft always intended to marry for love, like her parents. She wanted a husband who adored her, who would be her knight in shining armor. But her plans don’t go as she had hoped – suddenly, she finds herself married to a marquess, and her new husband an aloof stranger determined to keep his thoughts and feelings to himself.
It is the unfortunate truth that she and Lord St. Malin have been forced by circumstances to marry, and Kate is painfully aware that she is not the woman he would have chosen given a choice.
Robert makes it plain that marriage is merely for the procreation of an heir, and once that is achieved, he intends to continue in London living the life he enjoyed before he met her. Kate suspects Robert plans to tuck her away in the country, while he pursues his own interests, and she becomes determined not to let him have it all his own way.
A quiet battle ensues. Kate is left to wander the echoing corridors of St. Malin House, when she isn’t thrown into the midst of the mocking and clever Haute Ton. She’s not at all sure she likes them, as they live by their own rules, which seem rather shocking. She’s not at all sure she likes her new husband either, except for his brilliant blue eyes, the panther-like way he walks, and the smoldering expression in his eyes when he looks at her. He is a rake and does not deserve her love, but neither can she resist his searing touch.
Robert appears quite willing to do his duty, but Kate demands love and affection, and nothing less will do.
Can people from two worlds, and two ideals, find their happily ever after?
What a wonderful book.
A veritable delight to read and had me totally entranced by the characters,
The broody and stern Robert,
The confused but determined Kate ,
The enigmatic and teasing Southmore,
All playing perfect parts to bring fun and tension to this story .
I laughed , cried , huffed mainly at Robert , wow I wanted to shake that man .
A thrilling and addictive book that I read in one sitting , finding it very hard to put down ,and a definite 5 stars , I wish I could give it more .Maggie Whitworth
A stubborn, hardheaded Marquess meets a beautiful woman he can never have… or can he?
This is a beautifully written, novel with strong multidimensional characters thrown together by the unexpected conditions written into the will of Robert’s eccentric uncle, the deceased Marquess St. Malin. Robert, his heir, was required to marry, Katharina Bancroft, the daughter of a friend of his, before he, Robert, could inherit a large portion of his fortune. When Katharina Bancroft finds herself destitute after the unexpected death of her parents in a carriage accident, she receives notification that her Godfather had made an arrangement with her father she was unaware of. If anything ever happened to her parents, the Marquess was to step in and make sure Kate had a good life with someone to take care of her. Kate had always lived a simple life and was the daughter of kind, but not very successful parents who lived basically as free spirits. Her father was often thought of and viewed by others as somewhat of a poet. Unbeknownst to Kate, the old Count had passed away unexpectedly not long before she arrived and Robert, as his heir, was the new Marquess St. Malin. Needless to say, Kate was as shocked as Robert to find out the conditions of the will. She had always planned to marry for love, so she can have a
marriage like her parents. Robert had had a troubled background in love and marriage so therefore was determined not to let Kate crawl under his skin and make him fall in love with her. Read the book to see all he does to try to keep her at a distance and just how much Kate is able to endure, or not, before her heart and her spirit are irrevocably broken. Do they ever come to their senses and resolve their differences and difficulties of their past. Due to the complexity and depth of the characters, this book really holds your interest and is a real page-turner. Ms. Andersen writes exciting Regency books that make one wish to keep reading and hope for a continuation or sequel to this novel, expanding on other characters from this story. I really enjoyed reading this book and finished it very quickly. Amazon reviewer.
A Wonderful Story!
Cornwall 1786 A wonderfully woven story that tore at my heart and left me wanting more by this author..When the unexpected happens, one never knows how it will end.

She is so charming and although not use to the Ton, she excels at comporting herself so that she makes Robert take notice. There are so many facets to this story that as you journey through the pages, there are a lot of surprises and strong emotions. I could not wait to find out what happened. Can Robert come to love Kate and can they have a happy marriage? Will Robert every get close to his family again and come out of his shell and heal from past hurts? This is not a story to miss and I cannot wait to read more!!! Amazon Reviewer.
A Powerful Emotional Read
THE MARQUESS MEETS HIS MATCH is a riveting read that I thoroughly enjoyed!
This is the first book that I have read by Maggi Andersen, and I found it to be captivating from the start! Our Hero and Heroine, Robert and Kate, will capture your heart!
I loved Kate’s determination, her kindness, and her compassion. Robert was leery of falling in love…will he ever surrender his heart to the sweet and lovely Kate? Maggi Andersen weaves a beautiful tale of the power of love to transform and to heal.Amazon Reviewer.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story!
Both main characters, Kate and Robert, are headstrong in their own ways and as a result they tend to butt heads rather often instead of enjoying what love could bring them after they are thrown together in an arranged marriage that they both agree to for their own reasons.
This amusing and clever story is beautifully written and flows off the pages with ease. It kept me entertained from beginning to end and so I am quite happy to recommend it. Zena on Amazon.
CAPTAIN JACK RYDER
The Duke’s Bastard
Bestselling Historical Thriller

BARNES & NOBLE
Cover by Erin-Dameron Hill
Featuring cover model Jimmy Thomas
Will two army friends find their happy ever after?
The death of Captain Jack Ryder’s father, the Duke of Stamford, leaves Jack restless. The Duchess’ spiteful relatives have made his life a misery, and he wants nothing more than to escape London for a time. Dressed in buckskin breeches, he takes to the road on his horse, Arion, with the intention of visiting his mother’s grave in Ireland. But after one day, events conspire to interrupt his plans.
Jack finds himself not only caught up in a conspiracy of immense proportions, but also in a passionate love affair with a lady he cannot marry. Lady Ashley Lambourne’s father, the Marquess of Butterstone has been murdered, and Jack promises to find his killer.
A close friend of Jack’s from his army days, Harry Feather, heir to one of the largest fortunes in England, faces an arranged marriage to Lady Erina Roundtree. A tall half-Irish beauty, Erina is a spirited lady, who makes it plain she doesn’t wish to marry Harry, either. Determined to enjoy a quiet existence after his years fighting Bonaparte, Harry fears Erina will run him ragged. Why he is indulging Erina in one of her harebrained schemes is beyond him, when he should marry a quiet woman like Miss Beckworth.
~Meet the Regency Sons~
Captain Jack Ryder
Harry Feather, heir to Sir Averil Feather’s fortune
His Grace, Grant Neville, the new Duke of Stamford
Lord Timothy Scott, Baron Waddington’s heir
Lord Miles Hawkeswood, second son of Marquess of Sterling
Captain Jack Ryder, the bastard son of a duke, discovers a murder conspiracy that involves Napoleon who’s recently died in exile on the island of St. Helena. Jack then meets the beautiful Lady Ashley and they begin a passionate affair. Because of his ‘bastard’ status he can never hope to marry her.
Ms. Andersen combines romance and intrigue, believable characters, and lots of adventure in this Regency-set novel. A joy to read. Diane Scott Lewis
HISTORICAL: Captain Jack Ryder nd his best friend, Harry Feather, eet at the funeral for Jack’s ther, the duke. Because Jack, an illegitimate son, is not really accepted by his father’s family, he decides to travel for adventure.
He stops at an inn where he meets Lord and Lady Butterstone and their daughter, Lady Ashley. Lord Butterstone is mortally wounded, but before he dies, Jack promises to see his family safely home.
Along the way, he falls for Lady Ashley. Meanwhile Erina Rountree is told by her father that she must marry Mr. Harry Feather. When Erina and Harry meet, they immediately dislike each other, besides which, neither of them wants to get married. So Erina comes up with a plan and manages to talk Harry into it, but they soon discover well-‐laid plans don’t always go as they should.
This story is a unique combining of two loosely-‐connected stories into one. Despite Jack’s inferior social status, he attempts to do the right thing and even right a wrong. While Ashley is cool and collected and Erina is feisty and spontaneous, both manage to be very likable. Harry, the quiet compassionate hero, manages to worm his way into readers’ hearts by his unassuming nature. Luckily there still manages to be a happily ever after for almost everyone.
When I open a novel by Ms. Andersen I know I will enjoy it. Captain Jack Ryder exceeded my expectations. It combines the adventures of Jack and his friend Harry Featherstone, former officers in a Hussar regiment.
Napoleon and his armies have been defeated. Jack is in mourning for the duke, his affectionate father, and is exhausted after ‘many hours of lost sleep while his father breathed his last.’ Jack, who was educated at Oxford, received property from the duke and has an adequate fortune. He has seen little of his own country and plans to explore. He will travel on horseback, dressed in plain clothes and take little with him other than his pistol with which he can give a good account of himself.
Harry whose father is arranging for him to marry Erin, a wealthy baronet’s daughter, tells Erin, who does not want to marry him, ‘After years in the army I fancy a simple life. An enjoyable book a brandy, my wife with her embroidery at my side. Just looking at you, I can foresee riding to hounds, jumping tall hedges, and dancing till dawn. It fatigues me to think of it.’
When Erin decides to run away to avoid the arranged marriage and visit her cousin in Ireland, who is in trouble, Harry feels obliged to travel with Erin to protect her.
In the meantime, at the inn where Jack puts up for the night, fatally wounded Lord Butterstone, his wife and daughter Lady Ashley arrive. Before he dies Butterstone asks Jack to take Lady Butterstone and their beautiful daughter home.
I read on, wanting to find out why the dead man was killed, who the murderer was and if a relationship would develop between Jack and Lady Ashley. I also wanted to know how Harry and Erin reacted to each other during their journey.
Ms Andersen has created compelling characters in Captain Jack Ryder a novel with danger, mystery, romance and suspense. I look forward to reading the next book in the series about another friend of Jack and Harry, who served in their regiment. Rosemary Morris

Why doesn’t Blythe feel safe in her own home? Why is the death of her mother, once famed society beauty Clara, never spoken of? And why did the former governess leave so suddenly without giving notice?
“The author deserves high praise for her ability to capture the reader’s attention and engage one in both the mystery and the romance of this delightful story!” InD’Tale Magazine
“The author’s use of interspersing simple sentences and detailed description of scenery perfectly crafted the wild and mysterious setting of Falconbridge Hall and conveyed without confusion Vanessa and Julian’s thoughts when they were together, and when they were apart. This indirect characterization had done much to reveal the characters’ personalities and mind, which added a layer of realism and amiability to the story. I highly applaud Maggi Andersen’s writing in this book…”
“Treachery, deceit, and death are in the writing and make for an exceptionally good read.“
“Hated for [the] book to come to an end.”
“This was an enjoyable book with lots of tips of the hat to modern times in a changing world. Women’s suffrage, telephones, bicycles and amazon Rainforest adventure all rolled into one.
Excellent mystery unfolding in a household that had secrets galore. I enjoyed this first book of Maggie Anderen that I have read. I liked her writing style and I want to read more from her. Her heroine is a nice blend of new and respectable and Julian was a lovely scientific mind that had no idea he was making Vanessa Ashley the new governess fall for him.”

Christian Hartley, a British agent that Henrietta plans to marry, joins their fight.
Will everyone find a safe way home, or will they face the guillotine? RT Book Reviews
“This is an adventure not to be missed. The excitement mounts as danger appears around every corner. The devastation of the French Revolution is a backdrop to the well-executed plot. Love is in the air for three couples, but will they survive to realize their dreams?”
“Maggi Andersen does it again with a riveting story of spies and counter spies, villainous men of power, and Jacobins, and all set during the French Revolution (1792).”
Amazon Review: “I was blown away by the depth and scope of Maggi Andersen and her talent! It’s amazing that she is able to weave together an extremely complicated plot involving multiple love stories.
France during the “Reign of Terror” was full of madness and bloodloss. No one was safe no matter their station in life and by no means we’re just the Aristocrats brutally slaughtered.
Maggie takes us from the relative safety of England into the French countryside and into the very heart of Paris.
Her characters must reach into the bottom of their souls and call upon hidden reserves of strength and courage. Your stomach will drop in fear and you may even hold your breath at times wondering how disaster and death will be averted. The romantic in you will be well satisfied by the love and sensuality among her characters. Because even I’n the midst of chaos you truly follow your heart whatever the danger it is always worth the risk.”
Amazon review: “Engrossed in Hostage to Love I stayed up much too late desperate to find out what happened next as the enthralling plot unfolded.
I really cared about talented novelist, Ms Andersen’s characters and hoped the heroine, Verity, whose father had nurtured her carefully, ensuring she was as well-educated as any of the male students at the Sorbonne where he taught. But since the French Revolution ‘the world had changed. A French woman from a respectable home no longer expected the old courtesies to apply to her.’
When her father is arrested Verity will do anything to save him. To survive, she becomes an actress prey to a man who wants to take her virginity although she knows her father would be heart-broken if she became a courtesan. She escapes from the predator but Danton forces her to go to England to lure Viscount Beaumont to France in exchange for her father’s release.
Set in the same era as Baroness Orczy’s famous novels about the Scarlet Pimpernel which I enjoyed, this tale of adventure, duty, love and sacrifice gave me equal pleasure. The main characters will linger with me for a long time.”
Amazon Reviewer: “A fast paced story full of intrigue and mystery. Spies and villains keep you riveted to your seat in this adventure filled romance.”
UNMASKING LADY HELEN
THE KINSEY FAMILY
Regency Romance Series
Cover by Erin Dameron-Hill
Sometimes the biggest risk we take is with our hearts.
At twenty-four, Lady Helen Kinsey has her future carefully mapped out. A life of gentle quietude in the country caring for her unmarried brothers and walking with her dog. It does not include marriage, a dream she banished after her first Season. But when a handsome earl enters Kinsey House in London on a mission to find out why their footman was poisoned, she finds herself drawn into solving the mystery. And despite resistance on her part worthy of an army maneuver, she is irresistibly drawn to the earl himself.
After Whitehall receives a letter warning of a plot against the Crown, Jason, Captain Lord Peyton, is sent to investigate. Surely the famous explorer, Lord Lawrence Kinsey could not be behind it. He is engrossed in roaming ancient libraries and tombs in the East and bringing back their treasures for the museum. But after Peyton finds a fragment of a burned letter it appears that something dangerous lurks in Kinsey House, and Peyton becomes determined to keep the defenseless family safe, and one member particularly. Lady Helen has built a wall around herself and holds him at arm’s length. But arm’s length is not where Peyton wants to be.
As the mystery unfolds it becomes imperative for Peyton and Lady Helen to work together, very closely indeed.

“I really enjoyed this novel. It was fun, thrilling, and romantic! A wonderful story filled with fantastic characters that you can’t help but fall in love with!” Amazon Reviewer.
LADY FAITH TAKES A LEAP
“I enjoyed the story and characters, it was well written, and flowed wonderfully. I liked the little bumps and surprises that popped up along the way. A wonderful story!”
LADY HOPE AND THE DUKE OF DARKNESS
“I do wish to thank Miss Anderson for giving us the gift of her talent.” Amazon Reviewer.
THE SEDUCTION OF LADY CHARITY
“Ms. Andersen has created a wonderfully intriguing cast of characters. THE SEDUCTION OF LADY CHARITY can stand alone but readers might find themselves returning to the first book of the series just to see what they might have missed from Ms Andersen’s original stories.” InD’Tale Magazine
THE SCANDALOUS LADY MERCY
“Andersen writes an adventurous regency book that one wishes to keep reading, even after the story is done. This novel is part of a series but is a fantastic standalone work.” InD’Tale Magazine.
I have read, enjoyed and reviewed each of the 5 Regency Romance novels in this boxed set about 5 sisters who are, as the saying goes, as different as chalk and cheese, each with aan interesting, strong personality. The 5 heroes in these novels are memorable gentlemen.. During or after the Napoleonic Wars these brave gentlemen wre engaged in espionage by the government and tracked down criminals, murderers and spies. Each book in the series is a stand alone novel so it is unnecessary to read them in sequence. I am one of Ms Andersen’s fans and look forward to reading more of her romances that sweep me into a past with dashing beaux and belles

“In the style of Mary Stewart and Daphne du Maurier, Ms. Andersen’s Gothic novel will grip you from start to finish. You’ll feel the mists on the cliffs and young Laura’s terror and confusion. An excellent read.” Amazon Reviewer.
“From the beginning of this spine-chilling Gothic Novel, with beautiful word pictures of Cornwall, the author skilfully creates fear and suspicion. The twist at the end is a fiendishly clever one which I did not anticipate. The Baron’s Wife deserves the five stars I have awarded it. Amazon Reviewer.
“A Gothic romance in the classic style, the author is a master at creating ominous atmosphere and multilayered characters.” Coffee Time Romance and More.
“The plot was interesting and the added mystery kept me riveted. The novel kept me wondering until the end.” The Romance Studios.
“It was hard to put the story down as the mystery kept just out of reach, drawing the reader in further to the storyline. [It] kept me up way too late into the night following the puzzle of Wolfram Abbey. I look forward to seeing more from Maggi Andersen.” Siren Book Reviews.
I loved the way the author included Laura’s fashions. The detailed description of her clothes and also her surroundings helped put me in their world. I liked all the characters especially her Aunt Dora. She was like a modern gypsy woman, giving parties to her artsy friends and reading tarot cards. The plot was interesting and the added mystery kept me riveted. The novel kept me wondering until the end. 5 Stars! The Romance Studio.
Amazon review. “Really loved the story with its Victoria Holt like overtones. The mystery and its nuances were engaging and kept me glued to the book. I loved both the hero and heroine and I felt like Nathaniel was a little like Max DeWinter who is one of my favorite heroes. The h was marvelous too. I liked her determination to make the H love her like she did him. Just A good book for a rainy night.”

In a post-apocalyptic world, Evie French has just turned seventeen. She and her cousin, Marcus Peters, sixteen, struggle to survive after being left alone in their parent’s bed-and-breakfast hotel in outback Australia. An endless drought has killed Evie’s father’s avocado trees and all the surrounding habitation. Nothing grows in the fetid soil. Hope comes in the form of a nineteen-year-old boy, Joel Pitt. He arrives on his motorbike with his dog, Rasputin, bringing supplies. He climbs the tallest tree on the crest of the hill and locates an area of green down along the coast, hundreds of miles away. The three pile onto the bike, with Marcus and Rasputin in the sidecar, and embark on a trip that will take them over mountainous terrain with a limited supply of food and water. What might they find if they reach the coast? Will other people have survived the devastation? And who bombed their country? No one seems to know.

Evie French and her cousin Marcus Peters, live together at their parents’ bed-and breakfast in Australia after most of the country has been destroyed. No one knows for sure what has really happened. When Joel and his dog find their way to the bed and breakfast the three of them head towards a spot of green in a sea of gray. It’s a long way down the coast. They find their way to Paradise, a city made up of survivors, led by Abe. Evie, Marcus, and Joel don’t agree with all of his rules, but they must abide by them for the moment. But as time goes on, the three start to feel worse about what is going on in Paradise.
I couldn’t stop reading “Waving at the Moon” by Maggi Andersen until I had finished it all. I enjoyed reading about their journey, their struggles in Paradise, and their dilemma about what to do. This would easily be the first book in a great series. I will be anxiously awaiting Maggi Andersen’s book. Those who enjoy post-apocalyptic fiction, and those who just enjoy a good action book will want to pick up “Waving at the Moon.”
