The first kiss occurred in a dimly lit hallway on the upper
floor of Elwin Hastings's grand house. Louisa never saw it
Of course, Anthony Stalbridge couldn't possibly have had
romantic intentions. The kiss was an act of desperation
meant to distract the armed guard from catching the pair in
a place they did not belong. After all, Louisa Bryce, in
her dull maroon gown and gold-rimmed spectacles, was no
man's idea of an alluring female. The only thing the two
interlopers have in common is a passionate interest in the
private affairs of Mr. Hastings-a prominent member of
Society whom they both suspect of hiding terrible secrets.
Now, brought together by their ruse, Anthony and Louisa are
united in their efforts to find the truth.
Each has a reason for the quest. Anthony's fiance was said
to have thrown herself into the Thames-but Anthony has his
own suspicions. Louisa-whose own identity is shrouded in
layers of mystery-is convinced that Hastings has a
connection to a notorious brothel. When Anthony
successfully cracks Hastings's hidden safe-and discovers
incriminating evidence-it appears that both their instincts
Yet Hastings is hiding far more than jewels and ledger
books. Bringing him to justice will be more perilous than
they anticipate-and their partnership will be more heated
than either one expects. For it is not only Anthony's
curiosity that Louisa arouses, and the two share something
else: a thrilling attraction to danger. . . .
