Publisher Description

"Ever since we first met, I’ve imagined what it would be like to be in your arms, to feel your lips upon mine. I’m twenty-eight years old. A shy and oft-times awkward spinster with singular scientific interests, and I’ve…I’ve never been kissed. Not once. In fact, I never thought I would ever want to be kissed. But then I met you and…and I do want this. Very much."

Miss Lucy Bertram is content to spend her days writing scientific articles or curling up with a Gothic romance novel. Indeed, she’d rather stick a hatpin in her eye than attend a ball. But when her father, the eccentric botanist Sir Oswald, insists she accept the suit of a wealthy but stiffer-than-a-poker industrialist to save the family from penury, Lucy decides to act. She’s certain her disowned brother, Monty, will take her side. But first she must find him in St. Giles’s cutthroat rookeries. 

A covert agent for the Crown, William Lockhart, the Earl of Kyle, is on the hunt for a ruthless killer determined to destroy the Linnean Society. Sir Oswald, a botanical poisons expert, is the prime suspect. Posing as a groom in the baronet’s household, it shouldn’t take Will long to unearth the evidence Scotland Yard needs. If only the beguiling Miss Bertram wasn’t so damn distracting…

As an unexpected but undeniable passion flares between Lucy and Will, confidences are exchanged and dark secrets come to light. But will a murderer, determined to stay hidden, destroy their chances of finding a happy-ever-after?

Lucy and Will

Lucy Bertram is a very intelligent bluestocking who loves botany. William Lockhart is an earl and an agent for the crown investigating a murder. When they meet, he is masquerading as the new groom on her father’s estate. Lucy and her father are experts in poisonous plants. Could Will suspect one of them? This is an exciting and entertaining story with wonderful characters; a delightful story with a steamy romance, a mystery, a dose of danger, a truly vile villain, and a wonderful ending. I enjoyed Sasha Higgins’s narration of the story.
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and am voluntarily reviewing it.
