- Book 4 of Nelson's Tea
Everything Lord Danbury and Baroness Chauncey have done for Nelson's Tea has led to this moment…
Gillian, Baroness Chauncey has only been an English spy for Nelson's Tea for four years, but she truly thought she had seen it all. Yet as war continues off England's shores, from the sea to the continent, and victory is won at great cost, a devastating betrayal threatens the men she has come to know and love. And her love for one man in particular is tested when she makes a life-or-death decision that could destroy everything she holds dear.
As members of Nelson's Tea, Admiral Horatio Nelson's mercenaries have never questioned Lord Simon Danbury's authority—until now. Death's darkening veil is descending over London, and as a new hierarchy within the group begins to rise, a hostile mole prepares to strike. Surrounded by the greatest spies in England, can Simon unify the clandestine group without losing the baroness? Or will she be the price they have to pay for peace?

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.
