A sparkling Regency mystery by #1 New York Times bestselling author Amanda Quick, this is the perfect escape for the summer . . . Imogen Waterstone has always prided herself on being a thoroughly independent young woman, but now she is faced with an enemy she can't take on alone.
She needs a man; one skilled at seduction, yet who possesses an implacable will and nerves of iron to equal her own.
That's why she invites Matthias Marshall, infamous Earl of Colchester, to her home.
Who better than the legendary explorer to help her lay the perfect trap?
Yet in all of her plotting, Imogene never anticipates Colchester's sizzling reaction to their pretence or her own electrifying reaction to him.
Neither does she expect that a malevolent threat would emerge from the labyrinth of London - sinister enough to endanger her and Colchester's lives . . .'What fun!' Lisa Gardner'Krentz's fans are always ensured of plenty of wit and romance and heapings of suspense when they dive into her novels!' Romantic Times
