Author(s): 

Consummate storyteller Feather entices with a mystery tinged with humor
that will enchant readers who desire
a sprightly story filled with marvelous characters -- and just enough suspense
to keep the midnight oil burning.

Under the thumb of her family, Lady Cordelia (Nell) Dagenham seizes the opportunity to move to the house she inherited in London, even though Harry, Viscount Bonham, has made a handsome offer for the Cavendish Square townhouse. When she arrives, Nell discovers the house is in shambles, but nothing deters her from making it a home for her children.

Bonham, a cryptographer for the Crown, suspects that a code-breaking device has been hidden in the house, and he will do anything to keep it from French spies. He's willing to use his charm on the sharp-tongued widow, drawing her into the whirl of London society. It's soon obvious that Nell and Harry share a powerful attraction, but their growing passion pales when Nell's son is kidnapped and she must decide if she can trust Harry. Lives become entangled, danger stalks the house and Nell and Harry discover that trust is as important to a relationship as passion. (Pocket Star, Mar., 465 pp., $7.99)
