Posing as a male secretary to the Earl of Somerton in a clever plan to keep her safely hidden from the assassins who killed her father and husband, Luisa, crown princess of a tiny European principality, has her hands full with her difficult aristocratic boss, who tests her patience and loyalty at every turn. But her secret is discovered when she falls ill with typhoid, and while employer and employee agree to maintain the façade, ignoring their growing attraction is far more difficult. A ruthless, vengeance-driven hero and a brave, duty-bound heroine face betrayal, violence, and danger as they race from England to Italy and finally to Germany to battle the villains and reclaim Luisa's throne. VERDICT Witty banter, sharp humor, and delectable sexual chemistry spice up this exquisitely written, nonstop adventure that takes the cross-dressing theme to the max, adds a dollop of farce, and beautifully wraps up this offbeat late Victorian trilogy. Gray (How To Master Your Marquis) lives in the Northeast.
