***Formerly titled A Lady to Remember
In the City of Love, she has nothing left to lose except her heart...
Penniless and stranded abroad, Lady Adele Sinclair's survival depends on her brother's ability to charm the ladies. After Adele meets the man of her dreams and he makes an offer of marriage, she's certain her struggles have come to an end. However, when one of her brother's assignations turns dangerous, the siblings must flee for their lives, separating Adele from the only man she has ever loved.
He is just another fool for love...
Jaded by betrayal, Marcus Fletcher spends his days at the Drayton Theatre, a small London Playhouse, attempting to forget the lady who left him. When Lady Adele shows up at the theatre expecting him to honor their betrothal agreement, he must decide if he will play the fool for her again or possibly lose the only woman who has ever been able to break down the walls around his heart.
Gentlemen of Intrigue:
Book 1 Secrets to a Gentleman's Heart
Book 2 A Secret in Her Eyes
Book 3 A Lady's Secrets
Book 4 Lord Margrave's Secret Desire
Just a couple of days before they were to be married, Marcus Fletcher and Lady Adele Sinclair attended a party with her brother. Harry stole a necklace from the hostess (with whom he was having a liaison. He panicked and slipped it into Marcus’s pocket, resulting in Marcus being arrested for a crime he did not commit. He was kept in jail for months, believing he had been betrayed by Adele and her brother. In truth, they were trying to raise the money for Marcus’s release. Adele wrote him let him know what they were doing, but he was not given the letter or any of the others she sent. Months later they meet again in London. A lot stands between them. Can they regain the trust they had before and be together as they had planned? Will Marcus be able to forgive Harry when he knows the whole story?
The characters in this story are well developed and realistic. They capture your heart and keep you pulling for them from beginning to end (well, maybe not Sampson and Millicent). Marcus and Adele are good together and endure a lot to be together. Adele’s brothers are fantastic. They each deserve their own story. Russell and Claudine are back and are more than willing to help Marcus and Adele find their way back to happily ever after.
