years later in Portugal, during the Peninsular Wars, they
meet again, both of them spies, and destined to be working
on opposing sides. He is now a captain with the British
army. She is the widowed Marquesa das Minasâ€”sometimes going
by the name Joana da Fonte. However for only one of them
does the flicker of recognition still burn.
Amid the fury of war and in the shadow of secrets, passion
flares once again. But for Joana and Robert, each entrusted
to a dangerous mission that demands deception, falling in
love could be the most dangerous risk of all.
