Overview

Honesty can be the deadliest policy of all.

Lady Serena Ravenshaw is one of London’s most prosperous women, but she’s never forgotten the misery that set her on the path to success. Nor has she forgotten the drunken young gentleman who gave her the means to start her long, tortuous climb out of the gutter.

When he knocks on the door of the Ravenshaw Arms to ask her help in retrieving a stolen family heirloom, she readily agrees to help, and to let him stay rent-free. After all, Serena prefers debts to fall in her favor.

Still grieving the death of his twin brother, Solomon Hathaway just wanted to be left alone in his dye-making shop—until his highborn uncle sends him to the infamous Lady Serena to scour London’s underworld for the missing bauble.

He’s shocked to discover she’s the same bedraggled waif to whom he once gave his entire quarterly allowance. Yet as they delicately tread common ground, they must negotiate a treacherous world of crime, espionage and betrayal before they can learn to trust—and love—again.

Originally published Dorchester 2011.

Warning: Contains toasty warm pastries, scorching hot chemistry, and a web of treason that just might see England in flames.

The characters in this novel will steal your heart. I loved that Solomon and Serena were not cliched versions of a hero and heroine. I can't say enough about this book. All the characters in the novel had such depth and heart...and growth as the story unfolded. One of my favorite parts was Solomon's love for his brother. I wish Ms. Lerner would write Elijah and Rene's story. Maybe that's just it...it was not just a love story between two lovers...it included the love between brothers, between friends, parents, and even uncles. Those are the best kind of love stories: they make you see the beauty in all the relationships a human being is blessed to have. The pace of the plot kept me reading when I should have been grading papers. I'm not sorry that I didn't get my work done and spent time reading this book. You should read it too!
