In Englandâs Regency era, manners and elegance reign in public lifeâbut behind closed doors treason and deception thrive. Nicholas Langdon is no stranger to reserved civility or bloody barbarity. After suffering a battlefield injury, the wealthy, well-connected British officer returns home to healâand to fulfill a dying soldierâs last wish by delivering his coded diary.
At the home of the Wilherns, one of Englandâs most powerful families, Langdon attends a lavish ball where he meets their beautiful and intelligent ward, Julia Grey. Determined to maintain propriety, he keeps his distanceâuntil the diary is stolen and all clues lead to Juliaâs guardian. As Langdon traces an evil plot that could be the nationâs undoing, he grows ever more intrigued by the lovely young woman. And when Julia realizes that Englandâand the man she is falling in love withâneed her help, she finds herself caught in the fray. Will the two succumb to their attraction while fighting to save their country?
