Book description
Impoverished but beautiful Salrina could hardly believe what she was hearing. A French plot to kill the prince regent!

Desperate adventure called her... and a destiny that joined her to the earl in a far sweeter, bolder adventure than she had ever bargained for....

She dislikes the arrogant Earl intensely, but is impressed by his magnificent houses in London and the country. But gradually, as she discerns his heroic hidden qualities, her hate turns to an all-encompassing love.… (more)
