Will you accept my perfect love?

Derick Aveline, Viscount Scarsdale is the master of disguise and the best at the art of hiding in plain sight. Despite trying to retire from the business of being a spy, he is once again called into his country’s war on traitors. This fight takes him to the one place he never wanted to see again – home. He ran from that nightmare as soon as he could, and being forced back is anything but pleasant or so he imagined until he set his eyes upon Emma. Emmeline Wallingford and Derick had been childhood friends, who one after moments in the same room reconnect as it they had just seen each other an hour again instead of years.

Despite his seasoned control, Derick is having an issue with concentrating on his mission anytime Emma is near. Always the professional Derick soon discovers too many potential suspects and one surprising fact that knocks directly on Emma’s door. For Derick keeping Emma safe becomes priority number one, but he all too quickly discovers she is not only beautiful she is a brilliant scientist. Emma has spent years running her brothers magistrate service researching crime, statistics, and patterns and doing a great job of corresponding her information to other magistrates. Emma is using her beautiful mind to both assist Derick in searching for answers not only to the crimes but also about Derick himself. Emma knows there is something that is not adding up and all signs point to Derick and his refusal to answer a direct question.

Time together is shows both of them the most splendid moments of passion and excitement as well as the darkest of secrets. When you spend so many years pretending to be something you are not how do you convince anyone that you truly are what they are seeing now. Solving crime is so much easier than baring your soul to the object of your affection.

Heather Snow is a genius with plot, characters, and intricate information. Readers must embrace the magic that is the romance of her words, and appreciate the brilliance of her ability to write a mystery no one can figure out.
