Lady Evelyn Renshaw is married to England’s most notorious traitor. Or is she? No one has seen Lord Philip alive for months, not since he escaped capture for his part in attempting to kidnap and murder the exiled King of France in England. The Crown has agents keeping a close eye on Evelyn in case her husband returns, and has insisted that she remain in London, where she must face the scorn and insults of the ton for her husband’s sins. Captain The Honorable Sinjon Rutherford is on his way to fight a duel. Though he doesn’t like it, somehow Sinjon doesn’t seem to be able to deny a damsel in distress. Which is how he finds himself posing as a footman for Lady Evelyn - someone has to protect her from an unknown enemy that seems bent on her murder. But as they grow closer, can the secrets they hide help bring them closer together or will their pasts come back and ruin everything?
