Lady Elaine Prescott, the most timid member of the Brethren,
has spent much of her time in the shadows, forever blending
into the background. From her unconventional perspective,
she studies people and their behavior, gleaning information
most overlook, and she is content in her quiet little world.
When her unusual habit puts her in the right place at the
wrong moment, she witnesses a violent crime, and her life is
threatened. To her dismay, Elaine finds herself in an
unwelcomed spotlight and in need of a knight.
Sir Ross Logan is a master spy and the mysterious head of
the covert Counterintelligence Corps. In dark spaces he
lurks, scrutinizing those he is charged to defend, and it is
an easy and uncomplicated existence for a man of many
secrets. In the midst of a murder investigation, he is
tasked with guarding a noblewoman, the gentle lady he has
furtively admired for years. Young and unspoiled, she is
everything he is not, and he vows to protect her. While he
doubts not his ability to save her from a lethal villain,
can Ross defend Elaine against himself?
