The New York Times–bestselling author is “back and better than ever” with this delightful Regency romance (Julia Quinn)!
Widowed after enduring a troubled marriage, Lady Sophy Marlowe vows she will only wed again for love alone. But her penchant for being in the wrong place at the wrong time finds her accused of a crime she didn’t commit—and the only way to save her neck from the gallows is to accept the calculated proposal of Viscount Ives Harrington.
For the once-committed bachelor, the marriage of convenience leads to intrigue and harrowing danger. As the two flee over land and sea from a world bent on destroying them, the fate they can hardly resist is rushing toward them, fulfilling the desire that simmers in both . . .
