Elissande Edgerton is a desperate woman, a virtual prisoner in the home of her tyrannical uncle. Only through marriage can she claim the freedom she craves. But how to catch the perfect man?
Lord Vere is used to baiting irresistible traps. As a secret agent for the government, he's tracked down some of the most devious criminals in London, all the while maintaining his cover as one of society's most harmless-and idiotic-bachelors. But nothing can prepare him for the scandal of being ensnared by Elissande.
Forced into a marriage of convenience, Elissande and Vere are each about to discover that they're not the only ones with a hidden agenda. With seduction their only weapon-and a dark secret from the past endangering both their lives-can they learn to trust each other even as they surrender to a passion that won't be denied?

"Kate ReadingÕs smart, subtle performance makes this seemingly lighthearted romance into something quite memorable. Lord Vere has perfected his reputation as LondonÕs biggest fool, obscuring his real role as the Crown's most adept secret agent. But nothing can prepare him for the trap set by the desperateÑand irresistibleÑElissande Edgerton. Though her male characters seem a little overworked, Reading navigates the novelÕs complicated emotions with impressive skill. Her droll delivery perfectly captures the humor of VereÕs carefully orchestrated buffoonery, but she also thoughtfully emphasizes the subtle terror of Elissande's predicament. Elissande herself comes across as a strikingly resolute young woman, and listeners will find themselves drawn into the unexpectedly moving romance between her and the hero.
