English agent, Samuel Sherryngton has just apprehended the infamous traitor Julia Reed. You would think that he would be pleased about this, but something just doesnít add up. Circumstances arenít always as they appear to be and the case against Julia is just too good to be true. Not wanting to see Julia executed for a crime she may not have committed, Sam takes it upon himself to prove her innocence. But how can he win over her trust, when he has damaged it beyond repair.

Julia Reed cannot believe that Sam Sherryngton thinks she is a traitor to the crown. They have known each other all of their lives; he was the Gardnerís son on her fatherís estate. They grew up together, how he can ever think she would cause the lives of thousands of her fellow Englishmen to be endangered, but thatís just what he thinks. Who would hate her so much as to set her up for treason? And most of all, why?

Sam breaks Julia out of jail, telling her that he doesnít really think she did anything, but he needs her help in trying to find the real traitor. What happens next is a wonderful adventure in intrigue, greediness and putting your faith and trust on the line to right a wrong.

Sam and Julia are like two bees stuck in a window with no way to get away from each other. That is until love sets them free. When they finally realize that arguing with each other is getting them nowhere, the find that love can get them anywhere. While hunting the true traitor down, they never realize that the true traitor is so close to home and to what lengths he will go to to see Julia executed.

This is a fantastic story of danger, intrigue and love. Passion is in abundance and fairly burns the pages. Ms. Callen has a true gift of the written word and brings to life characters that you will never forget. The settings, the secondary characters as well as the feelings of the era are wonderfully reflected in her writing.

Gayle Callen is a true storyteller. You wonít want to put any of her books down!
