Lord Thorpe's new business partner is not what he expected.
With her billowy black hair and creamy skin, Alexandra Ward
is stunningly beautiful, brashly outspokenâ€¦and the perfect
image of a wealthy woman long thought dead.
Straight from America, Alexandra finds London fraught with
danger. Her appearance on Thorpe's arm sends shock rippling
through society and arouses hushed whispers: is she a
schemer in search of a dead woman's fortune, or an innocent
caught up in circumstances that she doesn't understand?
Someone knows the truth, someone who doesn't want Alexandra
to live long enough to learn anything. Only Lord Thorpe can
help her nowâ€”if he can overcome his own suspicions.
