Meet Winslow from Shana Galen’s True Spies and Giveaway!

Today’s special guest is Winslow, the sexy and secretive hero of Shana Galen’s latest release True Spies.  After meeting Winslow, enter for a chance to win a copy of True Spies!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in five words or less.

[Winslow] Charming, witty, deadly

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share a typical day in the life of one of England’s elite spies?

[Winslow] I don’t know anything about spies. I’m just a baron who has to travel a lot to oversee his estates. I don’t know anything about spying or the Barbican group or that madman trying to topple the monarchy.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words come to mind when you think of Elinor?

[Winslow] I don’t think I can share the first three words that come to mind. The second three are smart, brave, and sensual.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you find most exasperating about her?

[Winslow] Is she going to see this interview? If not, the most exasperating thing about her is that she doesn’t seem to understand that women do not make good operatives. She should stay out of the way when it comes to the business of spying—not that I know anything about spies. If she is going to see this interview, then nothing about her exasperates me. She’s perfect as she is.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you could change one thing you’ve done in your life, what would it be?

[Winslow] I would change the kind of father I’ve been. I haven’t been present enough in my daughters’ lives. I am changing that now.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s one thing you won’t leave home without?

[Winslow] Letters of transit. One never knows when one might be called upon to take an unscheduled trip to somewhere classified to—you know—oversee an estate.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you like to do when you aren’t conducting covert operations?

[Winslow] I don’t conduct covert operations, but if I did and I had a few days’ respite, I’d spend it in my wife’s bed.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share your dreams for the future in five words or less.

[Winslow] More time in bed.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Thank you!

[Winslow] Thank you, but let’s keep this conversation classified.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Mum’s the word!

About the book:


He’s Getting Tired of Deception…

Baron Winslow Keating is honor-bound to finish one last mission as an elite spy for the Barbican group even though he just wants to go home and be with his family. But after years of secrecy and absence, his daughters hardly know him and his wife has given up on him…

She Wants to Try a Little Intrigue…

Lady Elinor has had enough of domestic boredom. She contemplates an affair with a rakish spy, only to discover a world of intrigue and treachery that she never knew existed. Even more shocking, her neglectful husband is suddenly very attentive—quite the jealous type—and apparently there is much more to him than she ever knew…



Shana Galen is the author of fast-paced adventurous Regency historicals, including the Lord and Lady Spy Series, the Jewels of the Ton Series, as well as the Sons of the Revolution Trilogy. A former English teacher in Houston’s inner city, Shana now writes full time, and is working on more regency romance novels!

    Oh my goodness, I loved this interview. Those answers were just like a man.

  • September 17, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    That cracked me up!! Great interview! Tweeted and shared.

  • September 17, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    Thanks, Sarah! Winn would say, what did you expect?

  • September 17, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    Winn doesn’t see what was so funny, Ella. I have to say, he makes me smile.

    Congratulations on the new release. I’ve often wondered if agents truly keep their identities a secret from their family. It appears yes, but there must be a few that tell a spouse they’re an agent.

  • September 17, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    Kim, you’ll see he doesn’t keep it a secret for very long. His wife is not too happy, either!

  • September 17, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    thanks for the awesome interview 😉 I’m dying to read this book! Loved the others and I know this will be fantastic!

  • September 17, 2013 at 11:25 pm

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Winn kept it a secret for a pretty long time. At least from Elinor. 😉 Loved the story.

  • September 18, 2013 at 8:17 am

    Enjoy your books and look forward to reading this one as well.
    Thanks 🙂

    I love the humor Winslow! Since I have not have the chance to read this book or the other books in the series…how did you manage to get away from the estate so long? Doesn’t Elinor get curious as to why you would be so long at the estate or why you go so much?

  • September 18, 2013 at 6:22 pm

    Thanks so much, Erin. I’ll pass that on to Winn.

  • September 18, 2013 at 6:23 pm

    Winn thanks you, Flora. He is feeling quite smug.

  • September 18, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    Lisa, true. He was sneaky for 14 years. He could have kept it longer, I think, if he’d wanted to.

  • September 18, 2013 at 6:25 pm

    Sandy, Winn says he is very convincing, and when she asks too many questions, he bores her to tears with boring account details.

  • September 18, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    I love her books and am looking forward to this one!

  • September 18, 2013 at 11:54 pm

    Nice interview

  • September 19, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    What other genre do you like to read from? btw – I love your facebook posts…Baby Galen is so cute 🙂

  • September 20, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    Damaris, I like to read YA and contemporary. I don’t read a lot of paranormal, but once in a while I’ll pick one up. Thanks for being my FB friend 🙂

  • September 21, 2013 at 6:49 pm

    I love a man who can admit that he has been wrong and that he is willing to make changes. I’m sure his daughters will loving having their father more present.

  • September 22, 2013 at 6:27 am

    That was a fun interview and I am sure now that Winslow is not a spy.

  • September 22, 2013 at 10:37 pm

    Shana – I Love your spies!
