A pair of unique lovers battles an unsavory nobleman in this atypical Regency romance. Merrill incorporates humor, suspense and a hot romance into the story and includes a backstory for her characters that is illuminating and heartwarming.

Anthony "Tony" Smythe is a burglar turned British spy. Constance Townley is the Dowager Duchess of Wellford. Her husband left her with few resources on which to live, and she hopes to find someone who will offer her marriage and security.

Jack Barton has decided he wants her, but marriage isn't in his plans. Tony is investigating Barton for treason, and in the process must investigate Constance to make sure she isn't involved. Constance and Tony fall in love, but can they have a future, given his criminal occupation? (HARLEQUIN, Jul., 276 pp., $5.99)
