Maguire begins a tantalizing duet tinged with mystery and plenty of passion.

Maguire cleverly hints at the next book to come, ensuring readers will eagerly await the sequel.

Nash Farris returns from the war to find that he has become the Earl of Ashby and his niece Emmaline’s guardian. As unused to being an earl as his is to being a father, Nash hires Mercy Franklin as Emmaline’s governess. Their first meeting on the road to Ashby Hall sets the tone for their relationship; tempestuous. Still Nash is bewitched by the sassy, black-haired, outspoken Mercy, who turns his house and his world upside down. He cannot allow his passions to interfere with investigating his brother’s death. When “accidents” begin happening and Nash’s neighbor starts hinting at what a fine bride his daughter would be, Nash is caught between duty and desire. He must maintain the estate and family, but he needs Mercy’s love and compassion. Mercy is drawn to Nash and it appears there is more to Mercy’s background then she knew. As new dangers and long-kept secrets are revealed, Nash may have the power he needs to make Mercy his own. (AVON, Mar., 380 pp., $7.99)
