Eleanor Chivenham has never put much stock in her feckless brother, but even she didn't imagine he would stoop so low as to destroy her reputation. Because of his greedy schemes, Eleanor is forced into a hasty wedding. But marriage to the mysterious Nicholas Delaney, with his casual elegance and enigmatic smile, promises more than she bargained for . . .
For the sake of family honor, Nicholas agreed to wed a wronged lady. But such chivalry runs counter to his carefully wrought image of a ruthless rogue--the guise so vital to his secret mission. He hopes to keep his new wife in the background until a spy is trapped, but Eleanor's beauty and wit put her at the forefront of his thoughts, his will, and the desires of his heart . . .
