Having come so close to Parliament falling into a foreign country’s hands, Amy wishes to help keep her country safe by being the finest spy Chavier has ever taught.
Since no one but Chavier, and those who know her well, perceive her to be anything but a charming, but silly young girl, she will have easy access to those who are apt to cause trouble, since they will think her harmless.
Amy is the finest spy that has ever existed. Her ability to hide in plain sight is almost magical. Her ability to heal is beyond what should be possible. Her hearing is acute as is her ability to smell. Thus, she can throw a knife with accuracy in the dark and hit her targets with precision. In addition, she now knows ten languages: English, French, Scottish, Dutch, Russian, German, Portuguese, Finnish, Spanish, and Swiss. Thus if, someone whispers in a different language she not only has acute hearing to hear it, but it is very likely that she will understand what they are saying.
“Do as you like. But I must say, I’m a bit disappointed to think you came to me with such foolishness. I would have enjoyed this evening far more dancing with my bride than discussing false accusations.”
“It appears your bride prefers my son over you.”
Chavier had not seen Amy leave the library, but there she was, clearly in Bishop’s son’s arms. “Well, he’s young, handsome, and a fine dancer. What woman wouldn’t wish to be in his arms?”
“Do you not fear you might lose your young bride?”
“Lose her, no! She’s having a pleasant time, I dare say. But rest assured, I will be the one who takes her home,” Chavier stated proudly. He hoped she had achieved her objectives before Bishop’s son showed up.
Once the dance ended, he claimed her hand and walked her into the garden. She chattered on about the ball and the nice young men as she continued to stuff his pockets with documents. He wanted to ask her why she didn’t just read and remember the items instead of stealing them, but she was so happy he couldn’t chide her.
Amy grinned. “Now, I’m going back in and will kiss the young man who showed me the location of the documents. He’s very angry with his father, due to their situation now. He was sent down from Cambridge, and he holds his father responsible.”
“So, you asked him for the documents?”
“No. He just gave them to me to give to you. I had intended to refuse them, until I discovered what they were.”
“What are they?” Chavier asked.
“Encrypted letters between Bishop and the man who almost destroyed England last year, Count Valesky. It turns out the count was the one in charge of last year’s fiasco, not Carlos. Worse yet, Catherine is not living with her husband anymore. She is with Count Valesky. One of the letters I just gave you discusses the possibility of using her in their next attempt to destroy England.”
“What is their plan?” Chavier demanded.
“They believe she is your child, not her father’s. They are certain that you will not fight them if they hold your daughter captive.”
that is true, I will need you to stop me from strangling Ann. Let us return to
our carriage at once,” he ordered.

More About the Author
Liza O’Connor’s favorite books are Pride & Prejudice and Douglas Adams’ four book trilogy, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Go figure…
Raised in the southern mid-section of U.S., Liza escaped to the East Coast once out of college. She’s worked as a journalist, a radio DJ, a security guard, a stockbroker, a strategist, and a business solutions consultant to name a few of her many occupations. Again…go figure.
She learned to fly planes, jump out of planes, hang-glide, kayak and scuba dive, to name of few of her ‘let’s kill Liza’ sports. However, her favorite activity was to hike with her dog Jess among the shaved mountains of NJ. Jess is near 20 years old now, so he’s not up to much anymore. So I just garden and write more books.
