About the Book

Georgie Blalock, the acclaimed author of The Other Windsor Girl, delivers an enchantingly reimagined fictional portrait of Wallis Simpson through the lens of her cousin who is engaged to spy on the Duchess of Windsor for her alleged Nazi sympathies and finds much more than she bargained for!

American Amelia Montague defied her family five years ago to marry the man she loved, but that decision cost her everything. Disowned by her family, and left a penniless widow after her husband’s death, Amelia becomes her cousin Wallis Simpson’s private secretary in France. With no other prospects available, Amelia has no choice but to succeed, and under their Aunt Bessie’s direction, hopes to have a positive influence on Wallis and the Duke of Windsor.

During the next two years, Amelia realizes that not everything with the Windsors is glittering happiness. Beneath the façade of the besotted couple simmers Wallis’s rage at her stunted ambition, and the couple soon reveal themselves to be self-centered Nazi supporters who pursue their own interests at any cost.

When the Germans invade France, and the Windsors leave Amelia to escape the Gestapo on her own, Amelia finds herself in position to work for the most unlikely of employers: MI5 and the FBI. Convinced to work undercover, Amelia joins the Windsors in Nassau and soon realizes that Wallis’s treachery extends far deeper than the US and British government even knows…

Richly imaginative, Georgie Blalock’s novel stuns as it explores two women, opposites in every way, and the choices they make to survive both war and each other. . .


Critical Praise

"Brimming with drama, deceit and betrayal, The Windsor Conspiracy is a fascinating story of a young woman torn between loyalty to family and love of country and the immense courage it takes to accept the challenge of a lifetime. Compelling to the last page." — Shelley Noble, New York Times bestselling author of The Tiffany Girls

"The Windsor Conspiracy offers a complex and compelling portrait of Wallis Simpson following the Abdication, as told through the eyes of her trusted cousin and confidante. From Parisian chateaux to Bahamian estates, Blalock has weaved a chilling narrative about the lengths to which the embittered and myopic Duke and Duchess were willing to go to restore their grip on power." — Bryn Turnbull, international bestselling author of The Paris Deception

"Georgie Blalock pens a vivid portrait of the lives of disgraced Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson through the downstairs viewpoint of Wallis's personal secretary in this glittering parade of European high society. The Windsor Conspiracy is the next best thing to being on the set of The Crown!"Stephanie Marie Thornton, USA Today bestselling author of Her Lost Words

"Georgie Blalock returns to the Windsors, this time taking sharp aim at the Duke and Duchess as they stand on the brink of WWII. Through the fresh eyes of Wallis Simpson’s cousin and personal secretary, we get a unique and intimate portrait of this couple in all their entitlements as well as their alliance with Hitler and the Third Reich. Spellbinding tale, impeccably researched, The Windsor Conspiracy is a must read for fans of the Royals and historical fiction alike." — Renee Rosen, USA Today bestselling author of Fifth Avenue Glamor Girl

"A fascinating, deep dive into the turbulent waters of one of history’s most controversial couples, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, through the eyes of Wallis Simpson’s cousin and companion, The Windsor Conspiracy is historical fiction at its best!"
 Christine Wells, internationally bestselling author of The Royal Windsor Secret

“A fascinating look behind the scandalous curtain of the life of Wallis Simpson in the early years of her marriage to the Duke of Windsor who abdicated the throne of England to be with her, from the viewpoint of her cousin turned private secretary. Carefully researched and expertly woven into the sweeping pages of a novel, Georgie Blalock takes us back to mid-WWII, and a tense time for the royal family where conspiracies and betrayal thrive. Intrigue abounds in this page-turner. Highly recommend for fans of the royal family and the drama of the century!” — Eliza Knight, USA Today and international bestselling author of The Queen's Faithful Companion

"Those unfamiliar with Wallis Simpson may wish for more backstory, but Blalock (An Indiscreet Princess) sketches out enough of the history that readers won’t be lost for long. A solid entry into the World War II subgenre that will entertain and educate historical fiction fans." — Library Journal
