Sinopsis:

I AM NANETTE. I BREAK ALL THE RULES. During the war I was a spy for the British and helped save the world. I've kept my secrets for fifty years. But now I'm ready to talk."

"THE PERFECT COMBINATION OF HISTORY, HUMOR, AND ROMANCE" --Books and Beyond Fifty Shades
 
THEIR MISSION: Gather intelligence behind Nazi lines.
AT RISK: The future of the Free World.
THEIR MEANS: Whatever it takes." 

BUT THE LINES BLUR AND THE WAR HEATS UP when they are forced to choose between their hearts and their duty.

Joe Parker's search for his grandfather leads him to a former spy who worked with his grandmother in France during World War II. She still chain smokes, drinks her whisky straight, and loves telling steamy stories. He'll never see women, young or old, the same way again. 

ROYAL PALM LITERARY AWARD WINNER
                                                        
Inspired by the real women who helped save the world. "Code Name Nanette" is a quirky, sensual, character-driven love story that honors the British and American female resistance fighters in France during World War II, who loved and fought behind enemy lines as intensely as their male counterparts, but whose names and achievements remain largely unheralded to this day. It opens a window into the hearts and the minds of women who take on new roles and risk everything for love, freedom, or just plain adventure. The result is more than a history lesson. It's a revealing and touching triumph of courage, love, and hope against all odds.

"WARS ARE NOT WON BY RESPECTABLE METHODS." -Amy Elizabeth Thorpe, American Spy during WW II.

 INSPIRED BY REAL WOMEN WHO HELPED SAVE THE WORLD. "Code Name Nanette" is a quirky, sensual, character-driven love story that honors the British and American female resistance fighters in France during World War II, who loved and fought behind enemy lines as intensely as their male counterparts, but whose names and achievements remain largely unheralded to this day. It opens a window into the hearts and the minds of women who take on new roles and risk everything for love, freedom, or just plain adventure. The result is more than a history lesson. It's a revealing and touching triumph of courage, love, and hope against all odds.
 WAR ALWAYS GETS PERSONAL. Wars are not epic tales recounting the monumental achievements of larger-than-life heroes. They are bloody, devastating battles fought by discrete individuals who are swept up in the tides of history and forced to make personal life-and-death decisions on a daily basis. Each has a story. Most of them never get told. This is Nanette's.
A guilty pleasure.... The story-telling in this book is amazing." -Ingrid Hall

From the Author:

Meet the Female Heroes of World War II. 2014 is the 70th anniversary of D-Day, and the truth about the female patriots who loved and fought on the front lines as intensely as their male counterparts, has still never been told. Who were the British and American female resistance fighters in France during World War II? What did they do? Why were they there, and what did it cost them? Code Name Nanette, M.E. Dawson's sensual and thought-provoking exploration of the nature and variety of love that plays out against the bloody backdrop of World War II, answers all the questions.
 
Not just another World War II spy tale. Dawson nails the historical details, creating a strong sense of the time, the place, and the urgent uncertainty of life during the German occupation. But the heart of the story lies in the enduring personal relationships that take root and struggle to bloom in the darkness of Nazi oppression. Dawson opens a window into the hearts and the minds of women who risk everything for love, freedom, or the pure excitement of adventure. The result is more than a history lesson. It's a revealing and touching triumph of courage, love, and hope against all odds.
 
Inspired by the true lives of real women who helped save the world. Dawson explains, "When I started digging into the accomplishments of women who volunteered to parachute behind enemy lines and the lives they lived during and after the war, I discovered several truths. Their bravery and commitment were unrivaled. Their reasons for being there were personal, and many of them considered the years they spent at war the best years of their lives. I stand in awe."
