“Page-turning suspense and a fascinating mystery. . .unforgettable and masterful.”  –Deborah Crombie, New York Times bestselling author

A stolen treasure may hold the secret to a ghastly crime. . .Ensconced in the comfort of their elegant home in London’s Berkeley Square, Malcolm and Suzanne Rannoch are no longer subject to the perilous life of intrigue they led during the Napoleonic Wars. Once an Intelligence Agent, Malcolm is now a Member of Parliament, and Suzanne is one of the city’s most sought-after hostesses. But a late-night visit from a friend who’s been robbed may lure them back into the dangerous world they thought they’d left behind. . .Playwright Simon Tanner had in his possession what may be a lost version of Hamlet, and the thieves were prepared to kill for it. But the Rannochs suspect there’s more at stake than a literary gem–for the play may conceal the identity of a Bonapartist spy–along with secrets that could force Malcolm and Suzanne to abandon their newfound peace and confront their own dark past. .  .

I’ve been finishing my WIP, getting some of my old Regencies I wrote with my mom ready to go up as ebooks (more on that later), organizing celebrations for Mélanie’s third birthday on December 13, and then caught up in holiday chaos (above you see Mélanie and me on her birthday; below at The Nutcracker, on Christmas Eve, Christmas, and at the Houghton Hall Exhibit at the Legion of Honor Museum). Here, as my holiday gifts to readers of this site, is a letter from Mélanie/Suzanne to Blanca about the Fraser/Rannoch holidays in 1817, just after the end of The Berkeley Square Affair. […]

  14. Shana Says:

    Where does the Berkeley Square Affair fit in with Beneath A Silent Moon?

  15. Tracy Grant Says:

    With The Berkeley Square Affair the Malcolm & Suzanne series enters a sort of parallel universe with the Charles & Mélanie books to catch up the two series. Berkeley Square covers (in a different way, from a different angle) some of the developments and revelations of Beneath and Secrets and even Mask. The next book, The Mayfair Affair (out this May) is the book I planned to write after Mask of Night. Hope that helps! Feel free to ask more questions!

    1. Tracy Grant Says:

      Thanks for posting, Shannon! I’m so glad you like the series and sorry you were confused. With “The Berkeley Square Affair” the Malcolm and Suzanne books essentially move into a parallel universe to the Charles & Melanie books. Berkeley Square catches the characters up on many of the plots twists and revelations of Beneath a Silent Moon, Secrets of Lady, and to some degree Mask of Night. Doing this was the only way i could move forward to the books I wanted to write set after those revelations. I like to think that their lives are so adventurous it isn’t surprising they were chronicled in different ways :-). There’s more about this in the FAQ on this website, but if you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to post them here or email me at

  16. Shana Says:

    Thank you!

  17. […] And to keep the Mayfair discussion going, I’d love to hear what readers think of the state of Malcolm and Suzanne’s relationship in this book, three months on from the revelations of The Berkeley Square Affair. […]

  18. I’m confused about something in ‘The Berkeley Square Affair’ Nov.1817. Right it states that Alistair (not Kenneth) died in a mysterious carriage accident; Yet if you read the books as their were released (which is what I’m doing) we already know that Kenneth (not Alistair) was murdered by having his head bashed in by a double agent in his “secret passage” at Dunmykel in ‘Beneath a Silent Moon” Book pg 307. Which is set in June 1817, a full 5months prior to the set of The Berkeley Square Affair’, yet Malcolm and Suzanne act like they have no memory of this incident only that he died mysteriously in a carriage accident. I’m really befuddled. HELP. I love Ms. Grant’s novels this the first MAJOR enconsistency in any of her novels thus far… But it takes a pretty big leap of imagination to block one’s own memory from what one already knows. Where was her editor? Help!! Please explain if it’s not an error.
