Image of Never Lie to a Lady

The first in a new trilogy, this engrossing, highly sensual, intrigue-filled story
is guaranteed to keep you up all night. Carlyle knows how to turn the heat up
as she keeps the plot moving rapidly, thrusting a nobleman and a businesswoman into a web of master spies and high society. Carlyle cements her place as a writer of great talent.

Xanthia Neville is not your usual society miss. At 30, she manages a prosperous shipping company and deliberately remains single. Stefan, Lord Nash, is not your usual nobleman. He and his brother recently became part of the ton, and his dark, exotic good looks have many wondering how many hearts he has broken.

This incongruous pair meets one moonlit night, and in a moment of extraordinary passion they become bound together. Nash becomes obsessed with uncovering his "mystery woman's" identity and wooing her into his bed. Xanthia would never agree, except she's been asked by the Home Office to investigate Nash's possible connection to an arms-smuggling ring. This is the perfect opportunity for her to learn more about Nash and live out a sensual fantasy. Drawn into a silken web of desire and intrigue, Xanthia and Nash find great danger and grand passion.
