Overview

From an enthralling new voice in historical romance comes a heartfelt tale of love, deception, and redemption in the face of mortal danger…

Captain Garrett Sinclair, the Earl of Kendall, has returned to England a changed man. As a survivor of the legendary Charge of the Light Brigade, he has spent months as a remorseless rake and dissolute inebriate in order to forget it. But Garrett has also made powerful enemies who want him dead…

Desperate and down to her last pound, Lady Alexandra Langdon has disguised herself as a man for a place at the gaming tables. But when a hard-eyed, handsome man wins the pot, he surprises her by refusing her money. Indebted, she divulges an overheard plot against his life, and promises to help him find his foes—for a price.

But even as Alexandra fights her growing desire to reveal herself—and her heart—to the determined Garrett, she cannot shed the fear that the cost of her alliance with the earl may be a price too dear: her own secret betrayal.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Success isn’t in the cards for Alexandra Langdon, losing her last £100 to Garrett Sinclair, the Earl of Kendall, at the Duke of Hammond’s ball. Though dressed as Mr. Alex Daniels, she at least had an even chance. So why did Kendall return the blunt to her? Then Alex overhears a murderous plot against that same lord, but convincing him of the danger is another matter, until they are waylaid on the road. Alex is knocked unconscious, and Kendall uncovers her secret—or so he thinks. He wants Alexandra’s aid in thwarting the murder scheme, and as long as Kendall doesn’t know her true identity, Alex will play along. But does he have to be so distracting? As one of the few survivors of the deadly Crimean battle of Balaclava, Garrett can use all the distractions Alex provides as well.

Verdict A 2011 Romance Writers of America Golden Heart® Finalist, Morgan’s debut novel hits many of the right notes. Both of the protagonists are trying to conceal old torments, making them a perfect match in wit as well as emotion. Perhaps too much of the plot is settled “off stage” for readers who like to be in on the action, but that’s a minor quibble. Also, a bit less “crushing” would have been welcome, but this is a first novel and a well done one at that.—Bette-Lee Fox, Library Journal

    This book is a gem. It combines complex characters, a satisfying love story, and a fascinating examination of the Battle of Balaclava and its devastating consequences for the soldiers who survived.

    I cannot recommend this book highly enough for those who love romances that weave real history with a satisfying love story and a blissful HEA. Its a remarkable debut novel.
