In this Edwardian romance by the New York Times–bestselling author of the Hamish MacBeth mysteries, a lovelorn debutante finds herself in a deadly plot.
In any given glittering social season, Edwardian London’s dizzying whirl has its share of surprises. The latest is Kitty Harrison, once achingly poor, suddenly an heiress and now, thanks to her determined mother, she is about to become a Baroness. From the moment Kitty sets eyes on Lord Chesworth, she finds him to be the most exciting man she has ever laid eyes on. But Kitty is young, innocent, and easily dazzled. She does not even question the motives of the dashing bachelor who swears he loves her even as he courts the scandalously beautiful Mrs. Jackson. All too soon Kitty’s dream of marriage becomes a nightmare—someone is trying to kill her. Adrift in a sea of deception, Kitty soon realizes that to save her life and win the only man she has ever loved, she must learn to play the game, only this time, her way: smarter, better, and for keeps.
