Lord Thorpe's new business partner is not at all what he'd expected. Beautiful and outspoken, Alexandra Ward is also the perfect image of a woman long thought dead.
Straight from America, Alexandra finds London a strange new world, one fraught with danger. Her appearance on Thorpe's arm sends shock rippling through society, arouses hushed whispers in the night. Is she a schemer in search of a dead woman's fortune, or an innocent caught up in circumstances she doesn't understand?
Someone knows the truth, someone who doesn't want Alexandra to learn too much. Only Lord Thorpe can help her -- if he can overcome his own suspicions. But even if he does, at what price?
