Secret Document . . .
It was nothing unusual for Lady Leonora Ashton to transport government documents to her father from the Home Office. But on this particular afternoon a gust of wind scattered the papers, and suddenly an important page was lost. A document desperately wanted by more than one determined gentleman - one of whom would murder to get his way . . .
Sinister Plot . . .
Leonora scarcely knew whom to trust. The national interst was at stake, and the only thing she was sure of was to beware the handsome stranger who helped her assemble the papers, Captain Lord Deverell. His dark good looks and wicked sense of humor had no doubt been the downfall of many an innocent lady - but Leonora refused to be taken in. Yet as the plot thickened and Leonora's own life was threatened, she wanted nothing so much as to run into Deverell's arms, to believe his lies and give in to the most dangerous treachery of all - that of her own heart!
