Today’s featured Beau Monde author is Victoria Oliveri!

Photo of author Victoria Oliveri.History has always held my fascination. I became a genealogist for my family in my teens and traveled abroad to find my roots. Pouring over old documents is a treasure hunt. I also became involved in reenactment groups and found that immersion in living history was both intriguing and intrinsic to my love of telling stories of the past.

My love of world travel gives my stories depth. I’ve had conversations with conservators at abandoned castles across Europe, and have felt their stone beneath my fingertips.

With each separate occasion, I learn more about history and continue to build a bank of memories in my mind that will fill many more novels in the future.

A Secret Scottish Christmas (The Agents of the Crown)

Historical Sensual (mild)

Spies and Scots and Shipmasters, oh my!

Scotland 1819

Twin brothers Nash and Robbie Powell of Powell & Sons Shipping, London, sail with their fellow Agents of the Crown to Scotland for a secret celebration of Christmastide, a holiday long frowned upon by the Scottish Kirk. But more than Christmas is being kept secret. The two brothers have accepted an assignment from the Home Secretary Lord Sidmouth to ferret out a fugitive fomenting rebellion among the Scots.

Aileen Stephen, the only daughter of an Aberdeen shipbuilder, had to be clever, devious and determined to gain her place in the family business. She succeeded to become a designer of highly coveted ships. One night, a man’s handsome face appears to her in a dream. When two men having that same face arrive on a ship full of Londoners, Ailie wonders what her second sight is telling her. Is the face she saw a portender of the future, a harbinger of danger, or both? And which of the two Englishmen is the one in her dream?

Older than Nash by a mere five minutes, Robbie has always been protective of his twin. When he realizes Nash is attracted to the sister of their Scottish host, he thinks to help matters along. But Nash wants no help from his brother, not where Ailie Stephen is concerned because Robbie is attracted to the girl himself!

Two brothers vie for the affection of the Scottish lass but only one stirs her passion. Which one will it be? And what will she do when she learns they are spies?
