Miss Amelia Bonnington has been in love with her childhood hero since she was eleven years old... or so she thought until a not-so proper impassioned and unyielding kiss from the not-so honorable and equally disreputable Lord Derrick Brinsley, gave her reason to question the feelings of the heart.
Lord Brinsley, shunned from society for running off with his brother's fiancée, hasn't cared about or questioned his lack of acceptance until meeting the beguiling Amelia Bonnington. One passionate moment with the fiery Miss Bonnington has him more than willing to play by society's rules to possess the breathtaking, red-haired woman.
Amelia unwittingly becomes embroiled in espionage when she stumbles upon a smuggling ring in the modiste shop of her good friend. To prove her French friend's innocence, she dangerously jumps into the fray, jeopardizing more than her life.
On undercover assignment to prevent the French from stealing the Royal Navy's deadly weapon, Derrick must fight to protect British secrets from falling into the hands of foreign agents, and the chance at love with the only woman capable of redeeming him.
Enjoy the passionate, suspenseful Regency world of the Code Breakers, where daring lords and ladies decode the path to happily ever amidst their dangerous, heroic fight against Napoleon's treacherous designs.

Another Hit for Delecki!!
I am still in love with this author’s Code series! The romance and the intrigue are balanced so that both make an exciting read that is hard to put down. I read it in two nights only because I was too tired to finish it the first night. Derrick and Amelia courtship was a little unusual in that Derrick was the one who had to live down a scandal; that is mistaken by the Ton to be a scandal, however. During the solution of the spy mystery and after Amelia found that she loved Derrick, the secret to Derrick’s mistaken scandal was revealed and all barriers to their happy ever after were done away with. This is another wonderful historical Regency romantic suspense by a terrific author.
