USA Today Bestselling and Award-Winning Author
After attending the wedding of one of her closest friends, and celebrating the betrothal of another, Mrs. Felicity Randall is looking forward to spending a peaceful summer at her house in the country. Several months when she may do and say as she wishes, without having to constantly be aware of her place in London Society as the respectable young widow of Major Stephen Randall.
But before Fliss can manage her escape to the country, she overhears a conversation in which two people discuss the murder of the new Earl of Winterbourne. Unable to see or identify either the man or the woman from her hiding place, but aware of where the murder is to take place, Fliss finds her plans for the summer changed completely, and requiring she procure an invitation to the infamous house party hosted every summer by the notorious Lady Eckles. A house party at which no respectable widow would normally dare to show her face.
Sinclair Montgomery has no time or patience for London society, as it had no tolerance for his mother so many years ago when she eloped with her Scottish Highlander, Sin’s own father. But when Sin unexpectedly inherits the title of the Earl of Winterbourne, he has no choice but to go to England to view his new estates. It was certainly not his intention, once there, to find himself the guest at a summer house party. Although the rumors of debauchery and licentious behavior to be had there were certainly enough to pique his interest.
Finding the beautiful Mrs. Felicity Randall waiting for him in his bedchamber the second night of his stay, leads Sin to believe that perhaps all is not lost after all, and he proceeds to make love to the delicate beauty. Until she informs him the only reason she came to his bedchamber, has attended this house party at all, is to warn him his life is in danger. That there is a plot afoot to murder him whilst he is there.
Sin has only been in England a matter of days, certainly not long enough to have antagonized anyone into wishing to murder him, and leading him to wonder if the poor woman can possibly be deranged.
It would be a great pity if that were to be the case, when the sexual attraction between the two of them is instantaneous and highly combustible…
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
The underlying adventure and mystery of who would want to do harm to the Earl was intriguing, too, making for a very great plot.
Fliss and Sin’s story is the best so far. Many as a Scottish hero is always my favorite and a story that includes a disobedient and courageous heroine are my favorite combinations. This is one of my top fives now! A definite keeper for a future re-read!
I loved the characters and enjoyed this story thoroughly, as I have the previous books in the series. I’m looking forward to the next one and the one after that! Carole Mortimer has been a favorite author of mine from when she began writing many years ago.
Talent is talent and that’s just what Carole Mortimer has! Another amazing read! Only thing I hate about such good books is that you can’t stop reading until you’re done the book!! Perfect length for me also.
