Lady Emily Chandler plunged into deep despair when her fiance died in India, and now she is determined to prove that he was murdered. The brash American Brett Curtis's reputation may be less than sterling, but he's just the man to help Emily on her quest--if she can convince him to accept her dangerous proposition.
While their alliance uncovers a web of scandalous secrets, their undeniable attraction threatens to reveal something even more dangerous: true love.

Romance and mystery mix well in this complex sequel to The Heart of a Duke, set in Regency England. Lady Emily Chandler enlists American shipping company owner Brett Curtis in her quest to prove that her former fiancé, Jason, was murdered. As they hunt for clues, they realize that their constant sparring stems from their strong attraction. Emily suggests that they have an affair, as she has committed to never marrying, but Brett is reluctant to take her up on her offer. Though their days are filled with following leads, Emily plans to fill their nights with her efforts at seduction. But she doesn’t anticipate that her feelings for Brett will involve more than mere lust. This intelligent, sensual historical is filled with engaging wit, a healthy dose of intrigue, and scintillating romance. Agent: Laura Bradford, Bradford Literary Agency. (July)
