Valerie Bowman continues her Playful Brides series with Never Trust a Pirate: a delightful twist on The Scarlet Pimpernel.
Mr. Cade Cavendish is a ne'er do well, a rumoured pirate, and a man with too many false identities to count.
In fact, Cade's a spy for the English government, and he's recently returned to London to hunt for a master of disguise involved in a plot to bring back the exiled Napoleon.
Miss Danielle LaCrosse fled France after the wars, determined to begin a new life in England.
Her position as a lady's maid is the perfect start...until she's tempted to join her employer's devilishly handsome brother and Danielle suddenly finds herself in grave danger, trying to uncover the identity of the elusive Black Fox.
As Cade and Danielle are foiled at every turn, they realise that no one is who they claim to be.
Can love survive when the truth could mean their death?
