From USA Today Bestseller Grace Callaway
A spirited lady detective. A buttoned-up spy for the Crown. A steamy marriage of convenience that threatens to lay bare their secrets…and their hearts.
When her overprotective family tries to curtail her activities, spirited and independent debutante Fiona Garrity decides marriage is her surest way to freedom. All she needs is an accommodating, and preferably not too perceptive, husband with his own hobbies so that he will not interfere with hers. Destiny puts her into the path of a reputedly staid and scholarly earl. He would be the perfect candidate…if only his grey eyes were not quite so magnetic, and his virile nearness didn’t affect her in such a stimulating manner…
After the death of his first wife, Thomas Morgan, the Earl of Hawksmoor, has sworn off love. He is torn between his duty to produce an heir and his true passion: his work as an agent of the Crown. Fate gives him a solution when a dazzling debutante proposes a practical union that would allow them both to maintain private lives. She would be an impeccable choice…if only her heavenly gaze didn’t lay bare his secret needs and her delectable form didn’t tempt him to unleash his darkest desires…
Fiery passion threatens the negotiated rules of Fiona and Hawk’s marriage. As desire turns into love, their secret lives collide. Will their marriage of convenience survive betrayal and danger to become a love for all time?
“This writer to me is in the leagues of Johanna Lindsey, Lisa Kleypas, Julia Quinn and Amanda Quick.” -Amazon Reviews

Kick - A** Female Lead, check; Sexy - oh yea…CHECK!; romance - CHECK!!
By the second paragraph of page one I was hooked, line and sinker!!! The story was thrilling, sexy, sensitive and thoroughly enjoyable. The book has now become my top book behind Fiona’s parents book in Regarding the Duke. Fiona and Hawk engage in arguments/disagreements just like any new couple and Grace Callaway demonstrates how they work through it. Grace displays depth of character in Fiona and Hawk, which provides certain amount of substance to the story than just another “romance book”. I do wish there wish there were more displays of how Fiona can kick some butt, however physicality is not her strong suit, its Olivia’s in Book One, Olivia and the Masked Duke. I LOVED this book and I CANNOT wait for Glory’s and Master Chen story. Who is next, perhaps Lady Charlotte herself and Devlin????
I enjoyed this boy. The romance and story went hand in hand. Plenty of fleshy wide characters, humor and passion. I liked that the female characters were strong and talented.
I fell in love w/ Grace’s books in the first series Mayhem in Mayfair and had not stopped reading every book save one since! Her stories keep me engaged and re reading them since their initial download. This book was awesome. I love the interconnection between books and series! Now I giddily await Glory’s story.
