Series: Ways of Love Book 3
Genre: Historical Romance
Publisher: Etopia Press
Publication Date: January 10, 2018
After three years trapped in an abusive and loveless marriage, Lyra Coventry has been arrested for the murder of her husband, the Earl of Weston. Although she's innocent of the crime, she has no one to turn to for help, until Alister Ayles, the Duke of Albright, comes forward to offer his aid. The handsome duke takes her into his custody, saving her from a jail cell. But Lyra doesn't suspect Alister's ulterior motive-to prove her guilty of treason-as she slowly loses her heart to a man who is far more than he seems...
Alister Ayles leads a secret life. To the ton, he is a dullard, the subject of ridicule. But as a highly respected agent for the Crown, he's discovered a higher purpose by protecting his country. Now he's faced with his toughest investigation to date, uncovering a plot against the Crown...and discovering whether or not Lyra, the woman he let slip through his fingers years ago, is a traitor. Nothing is as it seems, and as the plot unravels, the dangers to them increase. He struggles to keep his feelings for her contained, but when it comes down to a test of loyalty, will he stand strong, or fall prey to his desires?


Sweet warmth enveloped Lyra as she pulled open the door to the massive, brick greenhouse and slipped inside—before a gasp fell from her lips at the sight before her. 
It was just like the sketches of the rainforests of South America that she’d read about in her books. Tall, towering plants of green reached as far as the ceiling, a few with leaves as large as an elephant’s ear. Some even had mini bananas on them, while others boasted large, flowering blooms that naturally perfumed the air. Even though Lyra wasn’t a botanist, she could certainly admire the beauty of such a glorious retreat. 
“You’re late.” 
Lyra turned to see Alister leaning against the doorframe to another section of this magical wonderland. As he pushed away and moved toward her—his movements predatory, his eyes feral—she could easily picture him as a wild creature of the jungle coming to claim her for his own. 
Lyra knew she should be asking him questions about the cipher, but when that strong, muscular body stopped before her, she couldn’t resist reaching up to bring his mouth down to hers. 

About Tabetha Waite

Tabetha grew up in a small town in Missouri with big dreams of being a published author after her fourth grade teacher said she liked reading her stories. She began her journey by putting pen to paper writing anything from fantasy to mystery. It wasn't until she started high school that her grandmother introduced her to the classic, Gothic novels. As her love of romance grew to encompass Harlequins, it wasn't until she read 'Midnight Bride' by Kathleen Drymon did she develop a fascination for historical England. After discovering the allure of Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters, she was hooked!
It wasn't until 30 years and 63 rejections later that her debut novel, 'Why the Earl is After the Girl', the first book in her Ways of Love series was picked up for publication in July 2016 to critical acclaim, winning the 2017 Best Indie Book Award in Romance and Second Place in the Feathered Quill Book Award in Romance for 2018. It was initially released as an ebook and later in paperback in February of 2017. Her second book, 'Where the Viscount Met His Match', released on ebook in June 2017 and in paperback in April of 2018. Her third novel, 'When a Duke Pursues a Lady', released on ebook in January 2018.
When she's not writing, Tabetha is reading as true bookworms do, checking out any flea market, antique mall, or doll show she comes across, and working as a lunch attendant at the local community college. She is a certified PAN member of the RWA and is a proud supporter of Passionflix.
