Genre:  Adult, Historical, Regency, Romance
Publisher: Phase Publishing
Publication date: July 1, 2019
​The most dangerous journeys…
Jeremy Pratt is a spy for the Crown, and one of the best. He has been in more dangerous situations than he can admit, and has always come out unscathed. But escorting his colleague’s cousin home to her family, even in disguise, just might be beyond his skills, and the temptation beyond his ability to withstand.
…May be ones of the heart…
Helen Dalton is convinced there is more to this man escorting her than meets the eye, and something familiar about him, as well. There is only one man in the world who looks at her so intensely, banters with her so easily, and makes her blush so furiously. And when he manages a daring and heroic rescue, she wonders if she ever knew him at all.

About the Author

Rebecca Connolly writes romances, both period and contemporary, because she absolutely loves a good love story. She has been creating stories since childhood, and there are home videos to prove it! She started writing them down in elementary school and has never looked back. She currently lives in the Midwest, spends every spare moment away from her day job absorbed in her writing, and is a hot cocoa addict.

Author Interview

LIWIC -What was your inspiration for this book?  
Connolly - I had been making my characters sort of secretly pay attention to each other, and then I wondered how I could make things come to a head… And so I made them get in a carriage together for an extended trip. Nothing like a roadtrip to make a good story!
LIWIC - What actors would you choose to play the roles of the characters? 
Connolly - I have Margot Robbie playing Helen, and Sam Claflin playing Jeremy.
LIWIC - What do you hope readers gain from reading this book? 
Connolly - I hope they find it a great adventure and a swoony romance. I want them to catch the excitement that I felt writing it. And I want them to want more!


By Hook or By Rook was an enjoyable read. I love the banter between the two main characters, Jeremy and Helen, throughout the book. The side story was very interesting and I was at times more interested in finding out what Jeremy uncovered rather than the romance. I can't wait to read the next book in the series to find out what happens next. This is the first book that I've read of series so the book was a little confusing at first. I think it might be better to read them in order. There was a lot of characters mentioned in the beginning and it was hard to place everyone within the story. Once I got past the beginning and the set-up, it was a fun read. I will probably try and check out the other books in the series.
