This is not just your run of the mill regency historical romance.
Intrigue, murder and politics hide around corners and in places no sane lady would tread. Caught in the middle of secrets, the Napoleonic wars, Portugal and the Iberian peninsular as the centre pieces, Lady Cassandra has a hard time knowing who to trust. Lord Armadale, (Weston Barrington, or rather West) with all he has to hide may pursue her secrets but can he be trusted with her heart
The storyline provides more than just the 'rake meets daughter of the house' canon and is an entertaining read.
