(formerly titled High Heels and Homicide)
Maggie Kelly, best selling author of the Alexandre St. Just Mystery Series, is on her way to jolly old England to watch the filming of one of her books for the small screen. Her entourage includes her editor, her agent, the viscount and his loyal sidekick, Sterling Balder. Months earlier both characters had popped out of her books and into her life, and yes, she still had trouble with that, even though her friends had accepted them as her English cousins whose names and physical descriptions she’d used when first creating the series.
Once at the lovely old manor house where the filming is to take place, the mayhem that seems to travel wherever St. Just saunters rears its ugly head. We have a manor cut off from the world by a flood, motives galore, and a cast of characters anyone would cheerfully choke. And, yes, soon there is also a dead body. But not to worry, as it’s St. Just to the rescue … again.

(formerly titled High Heels and Holidays)
Best selling author Maggie Kelly and her fictional characters come to life (hey, read the books…) are about to celebrate their first Christmas together, if Maggie lives that long, that is.
Fans usually send her cards, or pretty crocheted bookmarks, even candy, but one fan has gone too far by way of the delivery of a dead rat and a death threat. Maggie tries to laugh it off (“everybody’s a critic”) … until a fellow author and dead rat recipient is found murdered. Could she be next? Never fear, for St. Just is here, in all his Regency glory, ready to leap in and save the day.
Maggie Kelly writes the best selling St. Just Mystery Series featuring Regency Era amateur sleuth Alexandre Blakely, Viscount St. Just. One day she turns around and her handsome, arrogant fictional character is standing in the middle of her living room. It seems she has drawn him so well, that he was able to pop out of her head and into her life.
While juggling lies explaining her strange “houseguest,” Maggie also finds herself the prime suspect in the murder of her publisher and former lover. St. Just, hero that he is, naturally insists he will solve the crime, but she has her doubts. So far, her perfect hero has yet to remember to put the cap back on the toothpaste…
From NEW YORK TIMES bestselling romance author Kasey Michaels comes the first in her ENTERPRISING LADIES series.
There is a serious side to this romantic farce; two people who think they know who they are, what they want ... and then get smacked in the face with the realization life doesn’t always fit into neat little boxes. (Plus! Readers and reviewers agree: Indiscreet has one of the funniest Prologues in fiction.)
"There is so much wit and wisdom in the pages of INDISCREET that you'll be filled with wonder, and giggling all the while. Kasey Michaels returns with all the hallmarks that have made her a Regency romance treasure: humor, unforgettable characters and a take on the era few others possess. Sheer reading pleasure!" -- RT Book Reviews; Nominated for Best Innovative Historical Romance, 1998
