Genre: Historical Fiction/Romance/Intrigue
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 that just won’t give up. He’s smitten quickly by the too-intelligent Margot, but how to convince a girl who lives entirely in her mind that sometimes life’s answers lie in the heart?
Amidst 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 them all from the very secrets that brought them together.

Drake kept his gait smooth and casual as he walked along the street, even whistling a popular tune that anyone listening would recognize and dismiss. Just a normal Spanish man, out for a stroll before he retired to his home for an afternoon out of the heat.
The glance he sent upward took in the tall, narrow windows in the building. A warehouse, without question. But was it the warehouse? The one he’d been searching for this past fortnight? He couldn’t be sure until he looked inside.
That, though, was proving a challenge. The windows were too high up for him to see into from the street and too dusty to give him a clear view from the building across the way—he’d tried that yesterday.
He was running out of time. If he loitered around this neighborhood much longer, people would begin to notice him and wonder who he was, why he’d suddenly appeared. They’d start asking questions.
No one knew better than he that questions could lead to answers—and he didn’t much fancy anyone finding answers about him.
He had to get inside. There was no other option.
