When Cassandra Sheridan agreed to an arranged marriage to the Earl of Hampstead, she never dreamed the man wouldn't even bother to appear for their betrothal ball. It seems her intended cares more for gallivanting than meeting his bride-to-be! So Cassie decides to enjoy an adventure of her own and sets out across Scotland and meets a dashing stranger who has elevated dueling and deception to an art form.
A dedicated spy on a mission, the Earl of Hampstead has more on his mind than a silly party. Now fate has thrown him together with a vivacious lady whom he must protect from harm, and whose sensuous beauty is proving most distracting. Worse still, Devlyn is horrified to discover she's the very woman he's engaged to marry!
With their lives and reputations in equal peril, do they dare surrender to their irresistible desires?
A real page turner. This book has everything...adventure, intrigue, sex, romance...sex. Need I say more? Melody Thomas delivers on all counts and then some. I loved this book. Cassie and Devlyn are the perfect match, in and out of bed. Throw in some wonderful secondary characters and you have a best seller that will sit proudly on your keeper shelf.
