The Baron’s Ghost is the first book in the Rogue Royals series: Salty Situations for Saucy Steampunk Spies.
Christina Rushing, a baroness spy, is no stranger to the dark—her late husband can attest to that. But when she takes an espionage job for shipping mogul Thornton and ends up double-crossing the nation of Oceana, she finds herself gun-deep in trouble she didn’t ask for. What’s worse, the former Baron’s name has appeared on an active shipping schedule, though he should be six feet under.
Determined to both make sure the despicable man is dead and find a secret worth selling, Christie heads back to Ravensworth manor, followed by deadly shadows from her recent spy job. There, she learns her first love, Charlie Blackwell, and her neighbor, persnickety Earl Sheffield, are tied up in her dirty work, too. As ballgowns and whispers devolve into bullets and secrets, the lady-turned-spy becomes a spy-turned-pirate.
In a fast-paced political intrigue plot that aims for her heart, Christie must navigate backstabbing colleagues, snotty gentry, hidden caves, blazing guns, poison quills, and the occasional assassin. But the real trick isn’t necessarily how to stay alive—it’s how to keep her blasted gloves clean in the process.
From chapter one, Christie had my heart! The tension, the adventure, the romance–all of it. ♥️♥️ Can’t wait for the next!

Wow! What a wonderful journey. The Baron’s Ghost is a rogue’s tale packed with mystery, intrigue, and romance. Kyro Dean cleverly crafts a tale that quickly catches your attention. The characters have been written with traits that left me alternating between love and hate (or at least dislike) for them throughout the book. i can’t wait to read the next installment in this series.
I was entranced by this book by chapter 2. I was intrigued in the beginning. The writing style keeps you on your toes always wanting more information. I could not put the book down. I only wanted to read more. I feel as if I could be Christie and all the characters are personable, I can relate to each one. The plot was fun and exciting keeping you captive. I was given an ARC copy of the book and it was amazing. I was not disappointed at all. I was so happy to find a book i truest enjoyed.
