On the eve of her escape to the Continent, fleeing her
notorious past, bold, beautiful Lisette Colburne accepts a
proposal she dare not refuse: masquerade as the future
bride of the steely-eyed Royden Napier, and help him solve
his most dangerous case-or face arrest for murder. Soon
Lisette is in even greater danger-the danger of losing her
heart to the one man with the power to destroy her . . .
Estranged from his wealthy family, the enigmatic Napier
has forged a reputation as Scotland Yardâ€™s most relentless-
some say vindictive-police commissioner. Heâ€™s vowed to
bring Lisette to justice-but with every forbidden kiss and
every tantalizing touch, he finds himself becoming less
convinced of her guiltâ€¦and more certain he must have her.
But when danger touches Lisette, can he save her?
