The number-one New York Times-bestselling author returns
with a brand-new Sherbrooke novel, featuring a cast of witty
and outrageous characters and two wonderfully complex mysteries.
In April 1831, her grace Corinne Monroe wants her widowed
son, Lord Julian, to marry her best friend's daughter, Miss
Sophie Wilkie. Julian last saw Sophie when she was twelve
years old, silent, skinny, and always staring at him.
However, his mother is nothing if not persuasive, and Julian
reluctantly accompanies her to London to meet the young lady.
And he knows that whatever happens isn't going to be good.
Lord Devlin Monroe, Julian's nephew, is very fond of his
intriguing reputation in society: he delights, he frightens,
he brings on delicious shudders. He's enjoying an
extraordinarily pleasant bachelor life until Miss Roxanne
Radcliffe and her niece, Miss Sophie Wilkie, appear in
London society, and he finds himself wondering how he could
have enjoyed midnight alone.
Julian and Devlin must discover what really happened three
years earlier when Julian's first wife, Lily, was found
dead. If they don't find out the truth, their lives could be
ruined. And there is another, even more perfidious, danger
that lurks in the shadows, waiting.
