A reluctant heiress resigned to her fateâ€¦ Mary Elizabeth
Edwardes has one of the largest fortune's in England, but
has no desire to leave her quiet country existenceâ€¦ and even
less to acquire a husband she cannot choose for herself.
A dissolute nobleman bent on retributionâ€¦ Trapped in a
duplicitous existence since scandal destroyed his fortune
and family name, Lord Hadley Blanchard has spent the better
part of a decade posing as a disaffected exile while spying
and seducing in the service of the English Crown.
A dangerous game of seduction, and intrigueâ€¦ When summoned
from abroad by a former lover, Lord Hadley perceives an
opportunity for vengeance at last. By employing the full
measure of his seductive charm, he woos the ward of the man
who destroyed his life, little knowing that winning Mary's
fortune will mean risking his own treacherous heart.

Many history students have gone on to write about the period that interested them, in novel form... I've read many great historical mysteries. So why not romance?

Real events are nice little additions to the book... as long as it still focuses on the main characters journey.

It would be impossible to believe that romance has not existed in each historical era, so I love it when a writer/author can manage a seamless incorporation done in such a balanced way that you can truly imagine that the write is writing about a true person's experience. Way to go... I'd love to read this book.
