Pursuing this elusive heiress will be the ultimate temptation. . .
Lady Elizabeth Shield is used to saving herself from trouble. And even if dashing private inquiry agent Dougal Alexander just rescued her from white slavers, she's definitely not returning to her stifling aristocratic life and unsuitable suitors. Not when there are other women in danger—and a secret promise to keep in Edinburgh. But outwitting Dougal's tactics to return her to London and her family will be easier than staying away from his intoxicating kisses. . .
He's a baron's second son accustomed to making his own way and uncovering the truth. Now Dougal must keep Lady Elizabeth close for her own protection, but her spirited wiles are proving scandalously irresistible. His most difficult case yet will be showing her that he's everything she truly desires—and that love is the greatest of adventures. . .
