Impoverished Stella Myles meets the enigmatic Montgomery in a Piccadilly ballroom and he orchestrates a job for her as governess with the wealthy, secretive Ainsworth family at their country estate. Stella struggles to fit in – although nothing proves so challenging as restraining her emotions for the mysterious Douglas Ainsworth.
When they all venture aboard a cruise ship, tensions reach impossible heights. Stella finds herself in dangerous new territory, and in possession of an incendiary document that she must get to London at all costs.
From the rolling countryside of Kent to the colourful souks of Morocco, this is a heart-stopping novel of romance, intrigue and danger – and a passion to risk dying for.
