#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie
Laurens continues the bold tales of the Cavanaugh siblings
as the sole Cavanaugh sister discovers that love truly does
A lady with a passion for music and the maestro she
challenges in pursuit of a worthy cause find themselves
battling villains both past and present as they fight to
secure lifeâ€™s greatest rewardsâ€”love, marriage, and family.
Stacieâ€”Lady Eustacia Cavanaughâ€”is adamant marriage is not
for her. Haunted by her parentsâ€™ unhappy union, Stacie
believes that, for her, marriage is an unacceptable risk.
Wealthy and well-born, she needs for nothing, and with
marriage off the table, to give her life purpose, she
embarks on a plan to further the careers of emerging local
musicians by introducing them to the ton via a series of
Yet despite her noble status, Stacie requires a musical lure
to tempt the haut ton to her events, and in the elevated
circles she inhabits, only one musician commands sufficient
cachetâ€”the reclusive and notoriously reluctant Marquess of
Frederick, Marquess of Albury, has fashioned a life for
himself as a musical scholar, one he pursues largely out of
sight of the ton. He might be renowned as a virtuoso on the
pianoforte, yet he sees no reason to endure the smothering
over-attentiveness of society. Then his mother inveigles him
into meeting Stacie, and the challenge she lays before him
isâ€¦tempting. On a number of fronts. Enough for him not to
immediately refuse her.
A dance of subtle persuasion ensues, and step by step,
Frederick finds himself convinced that Stacieâ€™s plan has
real merit and that it behooves him to support her. At least
for one event.
Stacieâ€™s first musical evening, featuring Frederick as the
principal performer, is a massive successâ€”until Fate takes a
hand and lands them in a situation that forces them both to
Does Frederick want more than the sterile, academic life
heâ€™d thought was for him?
Can Stacie overcome her deepest fears and own to and reach
for her girlhood dreams?
Impulsive, arrogant, and used to getting his own way,
Frederick finds his answer easily enough, but his new
direction puts him on a collision course with Stacieâ€™s
fears. Luckily, he thrives on challengesâ€”which is just as
well, because in addition to convincing Stacie that love
can, indeed, conquer all, he and she must unravel the
mystery of who is behind a spate of murderous attacks before
the villain succeeds in eliminating all hope of a happy ending.
