Her secret missions take her to Vauxhall's infamous Lovers' Walk and straight into the arms of rakish Scottish swordsman Ramsey Munro.
As a Rose Hunter, Ramsey has vowed to safeguard the Nash sisters as repayment for their father's bravery. Rescuing Helena places him in danger of losing his heart when the passionate woman asks him to teach her to fence. Soon lessons in swordplay become lessons in love.
