THE BREATHTAKING NEW 'SPY IN THE TON' NOVEL OF REGENCY SUSPENSE FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE SMUGGLER WORE SILK
Revenge has never been so seductive.
When her husband is killed at Waterloo, Lilias Fairchild takes up his cavalry sword and boldly storms the front, earning herself the nickname Angel of Vengeance. But there is another angel on the battlefield who is just as single-minded, and just as ruthless…
Alastair Whitmore, the Marquess of Angelstone, is a British spy. Code name: Angel. Still haunted by a first love felled by assassins, his mission draws him to Waterloo, where he is captivated by a beautiful and mysterious woman fighting amongst the men—a woman who becomes his most intoxicating memory of war.
Passion has never been so dangerous.
Two years later, Lilias and Angelstone lock eyes in a crowded ballroom and the memory returns in an exhilarating rush. The history they share, and hide from the world, is as impossible to ignore as the heat of their attraction. But it’s that very connection that spells doom for their scandalous affair. When someone from the shadows of their past proves a dire threat to their lives, passion might not be enough to save them.
Alexander explores the obvious and subtle dangers of Regency England as two survivors of Waterloo meet again years later in a crowded ballroom. British spy Alastair "Angel" Whitemore, Marquess of Angelstone, is stunned to encounter Lilias Fairchild, whom he saw avenge her husband's death on the battlefield. He initially believes that she might be an assassin, but as their paths keep crossing and their mutual attraction grows, he is forced to re-evaluate his assumptions. Both of them are intimately familiar with the pain of losing a loved one, and they hesitate to explore deeper emotions. As the romantic plot thickens, the stakes in the spy game become higher when a killer targets the lovers. Nonstop suspense keeps the reader guessing, and Alexander draws truly memorable characters who will live on in the reader's heart.
