From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Olivia Drake comes an enthralling historical tale of romance, suspicion, and murder…
An exotic outsider to aristocratic society, Lord Kit Coleridge is determined to prove his innocence in the death of London’s finest jeweler. He’s certain the guilty party must be the jeweler’s wife, lovely copper-haired Norah Rutherford—but first, he must gain her trust—and carefully observe her. Under these false pretenses, an unexpected friendship and close connection blooms between the two…
All too easily, Kit begins to view Norah as far more than a friend…and definitely not a murderess. Captivated by her mystery, beauty and compassionate heart, Kit is unable to resist the widow. He swears on her innocence, convinced that the sultry beauty he’s fallen for is innocent. Together, they both risk their lives and reputations for the sake of this true and dangerous love.
