Evans follows Invitation to Ruin with a trip to the coast of early 19th-century England. Rufus Knight, viscount Strathmore, is determined to find the Dark Shadow, a smuggler he believes might harbor England s most notorious spy and help Rufus prove that his father did not commit treason before his death 12 years earlier. Rufus meets Rheda Kerrich, a baron s sister, and is instantly attracted to her beauty and wit, though he suspects she s involved in smuggling. He asks her to becomes his mistress in exchange for letting her use his stallion to breed her mares; soon this turns into courtship, though he secretly vows never to marry or love any woman. Rheda s fierce independence and intellect make her a very admirable protagonist, but the instant mutual attraction seems a somewhat precipitous excuse for a multitude of vivid and frequent sex scenes.
