An unexpected passion ignites as secrets are exposed in Sophie Barnes's captivating Regency-set romance Despite the diversions offered at Thorncliff Manor, former spy James, the Earl of Woodford, has one purpose in staying there. He must find an encoded book that exposes a conspiracy within the British aristocracy. And he must do so without revealing his purpose to the clever, tempting Chloe Heartly. The lady has a knack for appearing wherever it is least convenient. In the library. In the salon. And, especially, in his arms... Somewhere within Thorncliff's labyrinth of rooms lies the journal Chloe desperately seeks. When she realizes the brooding, handsome earl is hunting the same quarry, Chloe enters into an uneasy partnership. But in the face of public danger and enemies hiding in plain sight, both must decide how much they're willing to risk to solve the mysteries of the heart.

"While the second title in Barnes's Thorncliff Manor series does occasionally stretch credibility, narrator Rebecca Rogers deftly manages the story's unusually unobservant spies. As the audiobook takes place concurrently with the previous Thorncliff Manor title, there's some plot overlap; nonetheless, this can easily be enjoyed as a standalone. The Earl of Woodford and Lady Newbury are both searching for a journal that will help to unmask a shadowy group of traitors to the Crown. Initially, they work individually and then in an uneasy truce, which slowly becomes a true partnership. The trust that grows between Woodford and Lady Newbury is delicately written and skillfully performed, with all its fits and starts, and is given especial depth as both share ugly secrets from their pasts.
