First Look: Cover Reveal and ARC Giveaway – MAID OF SECRETS by Jennifer McGowan!

Remember my WoW post a few weeks ago with MAID OF SECRETS by Jennifer McGowan? I found out the cover I featured wasn’t the final one. And today I’m excited to bring you the official cover reveal for MAID OF SECRETS by Jennifer McGowan (Simon & Schuster, May 2013). Scroll down to read the synopsis, check out the enticing cover, and enter to win an ARC from the author herself!

Seventeen-year-old Meg Fellowes is a wry, resourceful thief forced to join an elite group of female spies in Queen Elizabeth’s Court. There she must solve a murder, save the Crown, and resist the one thing that will become her greatest freedom–and her deadliest peril.

For Meg and her fellow spies are not alone in their pursuit of the murderer who stalks Windsor Castle.

A young, mysterious Spanish courtier, Count Rafe de Martine, appears at every turn in the dark and scandal-filled corridors of the Queen’s summer palace. And though secrets and danger are Meg’s stock-in-trade, she’s never bargained on falling in love…
