Lady Polly had obeyed the dictates of her upbringing and refused to elope with the young, impetuous Lord Harry years earlier. But now she realizes that she might have lost her only chance at lasting love.

Lord Harry has cultivated a reputation as a careless fribble and a rake in order to mask his true vocation of service to the Crown. When fate throws the two ex-lovers together again during dangerous times, Polly must learn to trust her heart instead of appearances to discover her true desire.

Danger proves that love can overcome both anger and distrust when two hearts are determined to become one. Nicola Cornick pens a solid, cozy read with many delightful characters reappearing from other works. (Aug., 224 pp., $4.99)
