ignites as secrets are exposed in Sophie Barnes’s captivating Regency-set
the diversions offered at Thorncliff Manor, former spy James, the Earl of
Woodford, has one purpose in staying there. He must find
an encoded book that exposes a conspiracy within the British aristocracy. And
he must do so without revealing his purpose to the clever, tempting Chloe
Heartly. The lady has a knack for appearing wherever it is least convenient. In
the library. In the salon. And, especially, in his arms . .
within Thorncliff’s labyrinth of rooms lies the journal Chloe desperately
seeks. When she realizes the brooding, handsome earl is hunting the same
quarry, Chloe enters into an uneasy partnership. But in the face of public
danger and enemies hiding in plain sight, both must decide how much they’re
willing to risk to solve the mysteries of the heart.
