She's determined to remain unmarried: he's determined that she will not.
After watching her husband die at the Battle of Corunna, Laura Wickenham wants nothing more than to live quietly with her sister Phyllis and Phyllis's lovely 17 year old daughter, Belinda.
When Belinda becomes involved with fortune-hunter Lord Harris, Laura has to try to separate the couple before Harris separates Belinda from her money. Danger lies with Lord Harris's uncle, Ross Stansfield, newly returned from India. Attraction between Laura and Ross is instant, but Laura is afraid to let herself love again.
Ross is not, but when Lord Harris's father, Lord Blickleigh, tells him one of Laura's two regular suitors is a spy, he has to curtail his courtship until the spy is caught.
When Belinda and Harris elope, Laura sets out in wild pursuit, followed by Ross, who is more concerned for Laura's safety than that of the young couple. Blickleigh discovers a paper vital to England's security is missing, and the chase is on.
Finding love and more in the wintry English countryside, Ross and Laura are set on a chase to discover the spy, prevent family scandal and find their own destinies.
This sensual historical romance from Lynne Connolly moves from the battlefields of Spain to fashionable Regency London, to an England blanketed in snow and a gem of a country house. Excitement, love and adventure is served up in full measure as Ross and Laura search for their happiness and the security of their country at this dangerous, thrilling time in British history.
