Undeceived: Pride and Prejudice in the Spy Game by Karen M Cox - Audio Release and Giveaway

Audio Cover: Undeceived: Pride and Prejudice in the Spy Game by Karen M Cox
I’m happy to be welcoming Karen M Cox back to the blog. She’s celebrating the audio release of Undeceived: Pride and Prejudice in the Spy Game. This is a Pride & Prejudice-inspired story, transported to the 1980s and involving spies! I read the book some time ago, and really enjoyed it; you can see my review of it here.

I’ll share the blurb with you and then hand over to Karen for a guest post about the audio book, narrated by Elizabeth Grace, and a chance to win a copy.

Book Description

“...if I endeavor to undeceive people as to the rest of his conduct, who will believe me?” 

-Pride & Prejudice, Chapter 40

Elizabeth Bennet, a rookie counterintelligence officer, lands an intriguing first assignment—investigating the CIA's legendary William Darcy, who is suspected of being a double agent. 

Darcy’s charmed existence seems at an end as he fights for his career and struggles against his love for the young woman he doesn’t know is watching his every move.

Elizabeth’s confidence dissolves as nothing is like she planned—and the more she discovers about Darcy, the more she finds herself in an ever-tightening web of danger.

Unexpected twists abound in this suspenseful Cold War era romance inspired by Jane Austen’s classic tale.

Guest Post from Karen M Cox

Hello, readers and audiobook listeners! And thanks to Ceri for hosting me today.

I’m happy to announce the release of Undeceived: Pride and Prejudice in the Spy Game in audio format, narrated by the wonderful Elizabeth Grace.

Elizabeth and I teamed up to bring you 1932 on audio last fall, and folks, she’s really shown off her narration skills with Undeceived! Hungarian place names, many voices, some with accents, a couple or three love scenes­­, tension and suspense—she did it all. I’m so happy with the resulting book, and I think you all will love it too.
