Shadows Over Love query
This is intended to be short, but sweet, and a starting point for me. I would be personalizing the query to each agent in some appropriate way, but this likely will be the bulk of the query. Input gratefully appreciated! ~K
I am submitting my (Word count to be
determined after final edits, currently 76,000)-word alternative
historical romance for James Bond fans, SHADOWS OVER LOVE.
Comparative titles for this work would be Gail Carriger's Alexia
Tarabotti series: Soulless, Changeless and Blameless.
Lady Georgia Devane has retreated into
the world of science and research after being left at the altar for
being too smart seven years previous. Her parents have indulged her,
but are also determined to have her married off by offering larger
and larger rewards to the man who manages to persuade her into the
ranks of married couples. Lord David Montague avoids Society as much
as he can while running Queen Victoria's covert intelligence
organization, Scottish House. When an international entity bent on
world domination begins making advances in England and his lead
scientist goes missing on a mission to Germany, Montague must enlist
the assistance of Lady Georgia. They navigate the choppy waters of a
developing romance while danger and intrigue dog their steps.
I have been previously published in
erotic romance and erotica under the name Kelly Maher by Ellora's
Cave, Black Lace, Amber Quill Press and Phaze. I look forward to
speaking with you further.
