Gillian Chauncey, Baroness Chauncey, is a master of disguise, trained by her expatriated husband, a former French royalist, in the arts of espionage. When a dangerous life or death secret lands in her lap, she's thrust into a perilous world of ticking clocks and desperation, arrowing her directly into the arms of the man who arranged her marriage.
Lord Simon Danbury is no ordinary nobleman. He's been tasked by Admiral Nelson to organize an elite group of clandestine first sons willing to sacrifice all to protect England's shores. When an assassination attempt is made on Nelson, Simon isn't sure what poses more danger, the enemy or the masterfully seductive Gillian.

With her husband dead at the hands of Napoleon's secret service, Gillian Chauncey is the only thing standing between an assassination plot targeting one of England's most beloved military leaders.
In MY LORD ROGUE, author Katherine Bone gives readers a novella introducing the formation of Nelson's Tea, which is an advanced force of men selected to serve England in whatever capacity needed.
Lord Simon Danbury and Lady Gillian Chauncey share a forbidden love. She is willing to do whatever it takes to stay in his life, regardless of the fact that he is not free.
Heavily immersed in espionage and military strategy, this Regency read takes a completely different approach from similar stories of this type. Readers should take note that the storyline does not get packaged with an HEA; other books in the series pick up where this one ends.
The forbidden love concept appears to be well developed with both characters demonstrating a high sense of loyalty and duty. From a reader's perspective, I was hoping for more development of the romance angle.
