Spies never play by the rules, especially when it comes to falling in love.
Emmeline Lockhart is in an extraordinary position for a woman of her station. However, she has no desire to marry a duke who is old enough to be her grandfather. But what other options does she have? The only way out is to find someone who is willing to marry her… and quickly.
Lord Oliver Radcliff is discontent with his assignment as an agent of the Crown. His job is to root out radicals amongst the members of society, but he grows tired of gambling halls and listening to school boys ramble on. When Emmeline explains her plight, he feels uncharacteristically sympathetic and offers a marriage of convenience, convinced that it might be beneficial to both of them.
As Emmeline adjusts to being Oliver’s wife, she struggles with the closely guarded secrets that he keeps and is desperate for him to confide in her. Despite her frequent inquiries, he remains tight-lipped about where he is going and who he is meeting with. Suddenly, an unexpected inheritance is discovered.
Will it tear Emmeline and Oliver apart or bring them closer? Ultimately, will Oliver choose duty over his wife and lose her forever?
