Minerva Peabody needs a man. Unfortunately she picked the wrong one. The impoverished playwright has a dream to see her plays performed on stage but in Elizabethan England, not only are women considered the inferior sex, they simply do NOT write plays. Faced with rejection after rejection, she decides to take one more chance with the most desperate theater manager in London, only this time she’ll use the cover of a man. Sucked in by a pair of bright blue eyes and impressive shoulders, she chooses Blake out of the crowd, never thinking he’ll actually play an active role in her ruse. But when he does, he gets under her skin in the most alarming way.

Privateer (don’t call him a pirate to his face), Robert Blakewell, accepted Min’s proposal in order to discover which cur among Lord Hawkesbury’s Players got his sister with child. But when his mission threatens to destroy Min’s fledgling career, he must make a choice: protect his family or the woman he has grown to love. Either choice will see him lose something precious.

A SECRET LIFE is a romp through Elizabethan England and features cameo appearances from William Shakespeare.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

When I got this book it was one of the last ones i read and I wish I had read it first! I really enjoyed this book and I will for sure read the rest of this sereis!!


“A Secret Life” is a highly entertaining beginning to CJ Archer’s new series. I especially enjoyed seeing the characters of William Shakespeare and Kit Marlowe woven into the tapestry of the piece. Archer throws in enough plot lines to keep the reader thoroughly engaged. At the end, I had to go on and buy “A Secret Desire” to see what happens next!


From the first moment Minerva set eyes on Blake, I was hooked. The two of them share a connection that you could feel through the pages. ~ The Romance Reviews “Top Pick”

About The Author

I live in Australia and write historical adventure stories with a large dose of romance and sometimes the paranormal. My ebooks are available from Amazon, Amazon UK, Smashwords and other ebookstores.

I love all periods of history but set my books in the Elizabethan and Victorian. However I’m not fussy and will read any historical books I can get my hands on.

My favourite authors are varied and numerous but include Dorothy Dunnett, Jane Austen, Janet Evanovich and Libba Bray. Not only have these authors entertained me but they’ve all taught me something about writing.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – C.J. Archer and ENT appreciate it.
