Three years into the Great War, England’s greatest asset is their intelligence network–field agents risking their lives to gather information, and codebreakers able to crack every German telegram. Margot De Wilde thrives in the environment of the secretive Room 40, where she spends her days deciphering intercepted messages. But when her world is turned upside down by an unexpected loss, for the first time in her life numbers aren’t enough.

Drake Elton returns wounded from the field, followed by an enemy who just won’t give up. He’s smitten quickly by the intelligent Margot, but how can he convince a girl who lives entirely in her mind that sometimes life’s answers lie in the heart?

Amid biological warfare, encrypted letters, and a German spy who wants to destroy not just them but others they love, Margot and Drake will have to work together to save themselves from the very secrets that brought them together.

  1. Happy Friday!
    Today, on my blog I am sharing the first few lines from The Governess of Penwythe Hall by Sarah E. Ladd: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/07/04/first-line-friday-92/. I’m currently just starting Cameo Courtships. It’s a short story anthology that I’m liking so far. Here’s the first line from the first story, “Pinned Above her Heart” by Susanne Dietze:

    London, England, April 30, 1851
    “Don’t touch anything, Letitia.”

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with fun reading!

  2. My First Line is from A Reluctant Belle by Beth White:
    Prologue:
    June, 1860
    Tree limbs slapped Joelle’s face as she ran through the woods behind the bathhouse.
    Loved this second book in the Daughtry House series.
    Happy reading!

    I absolutely loved this book and anything Rosanna writes!

  3. I’m currently reading Hello Again by Heather Tullis and the first line is “Piper listened as the Croods avoided being squashed or eaten by a bevy or prehistoric animals.” I’m about halfway through and enjoying it so far!

  4. I’ve already read my review copy of The Number of Love – she’s one of those authors I want to read as soon as I get the book. I think this was her best yet.

    I’m sharing from Sing a New Song by Candee Fick on my blog, which is a fun contemporary romance. I’ve just started reading Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky, which is set in England in 1909. Here’s the first line:

    “Isabella Grayson’s shoes sank into the plush red carpet of Broadlands’ south hall, and she released a soft sigh. What luxury!”

    Its about the early days of aviation, and I’m enjoying it. Have a great weekend!
