Elissande Edgerton is a desperate woman, a virtual prisoner in the home of her tyrannical uncle. Only through marriage can she claim the freedom she craves. But how to catch the perfect man? Lord Vere is used to baiting irresistible traps. As a secret agent for the government, he's tracked down some of the most devious criminals in London, all the while maintaining his cover as one of society's most harmless—and idiotic—bachelors. But nothing can prepare him for the scandal of being ensnared by Elissande. Forced into a marriage of convenience, Elissande and Vere are each about to discover that they're not the only ones with a hidden agenda. With seduction their only weapon—and a dark secret from the past endangering both their lives—can they learn to trust each other even as they surrender to a passion that won't be denied?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

[A] perfectly delightful and unusual, slightly sexy story with a dark side. Fangs, Wands & Fairy Dust
“Thomas doesn’t just enhance the genre, she enriches it with her intelligent characters, brilliant dialogue, innovative plot twists, and amazing love stories. Reading her novel is a rare treat—an insight into the hearts and minds of all who dream.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“With lush sensuality, intense emotion, lyrical writing, and exquisitely realized characters, Thomas has delivered another unforgettable winner.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Thomas employs grand misunderstanding to motivate this Victorian romance, which is replete with perfect period touches…Thomas writes with genuine wit and sympathy.” Publishers Weekly
“Kate Reading’s smart, subtle performance makes this seemingly lighthearted romance into something quite memorable…Reading navigates the novel’s complicated emotions with impressive skill. Her droll delivery perfectly captures the humor of Vere’s carefully orchestrated buffoonery, but she also thoughtfully emphasizes the subtle terror of Elissande’s predicament. Elissande herself comes across as a strikingly resolute young woman, and listeners will find themselves drawn into the unexpectedly moving romance between her and the hero.” AudioFile
“The most powerfully original historical romance author writing today.” Lisa Kleypas, New York Times bestselling author of Smooth Talking Stranger, praise for the author
