Shy aspiring artist Imogene feels conflicted about marrying the young man her father has chosen for her, but she is willing to at least give him a chance for her family's sake. That is, until she meets Ben, a charming architect's apprentice . . . and her suitor's younger brother.

Unbeknownst to Imogene, Ben feels the same way about her, but he can never let his true feelings be known without betraying his brother. So he resigns himself to merely a friendship with her, enlisting her to teach him how to draw.

But hiding their true feelings for each other becomes the least of their problems when, after a series of unfortunate accidents, it becomes apparent that someone means Ben serious harm. And as their affection for each other grows, so does the danger. . . .

Praise for Suitors and Sabotage A Junior Library Guild Selection Anstey's tale embraces a self-reliant main character, a loyal friend, innocent romance, witty conversation, and English country settings, each more splendid than the last. This is a delightful salute to Jane Austen and will be a treat for her fans. --VOYA Mystery and romance are delightfully intertwined . . . Taking inspiration from Jane Austen novels, Anstey's latest is a lighthearted and romantic read. --Booklist Praise for Duels & Deception: Jane Austen fans in need of a good new book, look no further. Cindy Anstey's new YA novel, Duels & Deception, is your next regency romance treat. --Entertainment Weekly A great introduction to historical romance novels for younger YA readers. . . . Anstey's novel is a wonderful coming-of-age journey filled with entertaining characters and wild adventures. --School Library Journal Praise for Love, Lies and Spies It's Jane Austen meets Jane Foster in Anstey's debut novel, which serves up a delightful combination of Regency romance, scientific curiosity, and spy intrigue for a tale that will have readers rooting for love and science. --Entertainment Weekly A great recommendation for teens who are not quite ready to tackle the complex language of Austen's classics. . . . A cute premise and cover make this a solid purchase for budding historical romance readers. --School Library Journal Love, Lies and Spies is an adorable little romp in Regency-era London, perfectly-paced and delightfully entertaining. It had me grinning from ear to ear, cover to cover. And the best part of all is that it seems to be a stand-alone with none of those ridiculous miscommunications. It really was just a pleasure to read! --The Starry-Eyed Revue Fantastic romance that I fell completely in love with. The amazing characters and intriguing mystery will make this a big hit with all YA regency fans! --Dark Faerie Tales I never want it to end. I cannot tell you how much I love this book. Juliana, Spencer, Bobbington, ALL of them are just so utterly wonderful. This is BETTER than Georgette Heyer. YEP, I SAID IT. It even reminds me of my absolute favorite--the regency romances by Jude Morgan. . . . Just wonderful! --Kelly Zekas, co-author of These Vicious Masks
