Her second day doing doctoral research in the basement
archives of Siddley Hall, England's grandest Tudor home,
American Antonia Townley stumbles upon the hall's curator
with a knife plunged into his chest. Police suspect Antonia
of being the killer because of two insignificantâ€”to
herâ€”reasons: The first is the pesky matter of her
fingerprints on the murder weapon. The second is the
unfortunate email she had sent to her sister saying she
would kill for the curator's job.
Handsome bachelor Frederick Percy, Lord Rockford of Siddley
Hall, learns that the curator was on the trail of the Percy
family monstrance, the most valuable monstrance in England
before Henry VIII's dissolution. Frederick becomes
convinced that the curator's death is tied to the priceless
artifact, and he must find it before the killer does to
free Antonia from suspicion of murder. More importantly,
Frederick vows to protect the beautiful scholar against the
menacing forces after her.
But as Frederick and Antonia crisscross England seeking
information on the Percy Monstrance, it becomes clear that
someone is stalking her every move. Could Frederick, the
man Antonia has fallen in love with, be the very person who
is out to destroy her?
