A nobleman devoted to defending queen and country and a noblewoman wild enough to match his every step race to disrupt the plans of a malignant intelligence intent on shaking England to its very foundations.

Lord Drake Varisey, Marquess of Winchelsea, eldest son and heir of the Duke of Wolverstone, must foil a plot that threatens to shake the foundations of the realm, but the very last lady - nay, noblewoman - he needs assisting him is Lady Louisa Cynster, known throughout the ton as Lady Wild.

For the past nine years, Louisa has suspected that Drake might well be the ideal husband for her, even though he’s assiduous in avoiding her. But she’s now twenty-seven and enough is enough. She believes propinquity will reveal exactly what it is that lies between them, and what better opportunity to work closely with Drake than this latest mission with which he patently needs her help?

Unable to deny Louisa’s abilities or the value of her assistance and powerless to curb her willfulness, Drake is forced to grit his teeth and acquiesce to her sticking by his side if only to ensure her safety. But all too soon, his true feelings for her surface sufficiently for her, perspicacious as she is, to see through his denials, which she then interprets as a challenge.

Even while they gather information, tease out clues, increasingly desperately search for the missing gunpowder, and doggedly pursue the killer responsible for an ever-escalating tally of dead men, thrown together through the hours, he and she learn to trust and appreciate each other. And fed by constant exposure—and blatantly encouraged by her—their desires and hungers swell and grow…

Praise for the works of Stephanie Laurens:

“Stephanie Laurens’ heroines are marvelous tributes to Georgette Heyer: feisty and strong.” - Cathy Kelly

“Stephanie Laurens never fails to entertain and charm her readers with vibrant plots, snappy dialogue, and unforgettable characters.” - Historical Romance Reviews

“Stephanie Laurens plays into readers’ fantasies like a master and claims their hearts time and again.” - Romantic Times Magazine

Enthroned in an armchair in the back parlor of St. Ives House, Lady Louisa Helena Horatia Cynster watched Lord Drake Varisey, Marquess of Winchelsea, struggle to accept the inevitable. Could his reluctance be any more obvious? Well, he would simply have to get used to it. She’d had enough of playing by his rules.

She knew all about Drake’s “missions” and his coterie of gentlemen known as the “sons of the nobility.” What she wanted to know was: What about the daughters of the nobility? Weren’t they allowed to play a part in defending their country?

What about Boadicea?

Besides, as it appeared that Antonia Rawlings and Miss Hendon had been included in this intrigue, Louisa saw no reason why she—a duke’s daughter accomplished in wielding the power such standing bestowed—couldn’t play a part. An active part.

Naturally, she understood why Drake, and her brothers, too, wished to keep her far from their enterprise. But her brothers knew their place. Drake would simply have to grow accustomed to his.

It was time. And more, truth be told.

She could remember the precise moment when she’d realized that from her point of view, Drake was the outstanding candidate for the position of her husband. She could also remember perfectly well when she’d realized he knew that, too.

He, however, had evidently decided to avoid addressing the issue for as long as he possibly could.

They were not in love. How could they be when he’d ensured he spent as little time within ten yards of her as humanly possible?

Which, of course, was a very large part of the reason he didn’t want her anywhere near his precious mission.

Too bad. She was dealing herself into his game.
