Lord Hadley Blanchard is the son of an Earl who has died while under the shadow of a scandal that rocked his world and left him without his entitlements. While living the life of a footloose rogue, he is secretly a spy for the crown. Now Hadley is out for vengeance against the man responsible.

Mary Elizabeth Edwardes an heiress to a very large fortune who must take a husband, whether she wants him or not. Innocent and naive, Mary is forced by Sir Richard, the guardian her father appointed, to leave her country estate and go to London to find said husband.

Meanwhile, Hadley conspires to win her heart and return his family's name to good standing. Having no one to turn to, Mary trusts in Hadley, knowing he could break her heart, not knowing of his own plans.

Through several twists and turns they find how evil and determined their enemies can be.

With great attention to detail, the author has drawn a beautiful picture of the era and settings without overpowering the story.

The romantic tension between Mary and Hadley increases as they get to know each other better, with Mary playing a good student to Hadley's teachings! Hadley gained my sympathy when Mary refused to believe his story of his past and it looked like his heart and his future would now be ruined. A wonderful escape from this century!
