Much to her surprise, the one man she had hoped to forget--
the enigmatic and compelling Nicholas Brisbane--is among
her father's house guests...and he is not alone. Not to be
outdone, Julia shows him that two can play at flirtation
and promptly introduces him to her devoted, younger, titled
But the homecoming celebrations quickly take a ghastly turn
when one of the guests is found brutally murdered in the
chapel, and a member of Lady Julia's own family confesses

resumes her unlikely and deliciously intriguing partnership
with Nicholas Brisbane, setting out to unravel a tangle of
