"Wickedly amusing Regency fun!" ~Mary Jo Putney
Sheltered and studious, Rowena Riverstone can't wait to experience London for the first time. She especially looks forward to meeting many of the forward-thinking gentlemen whose opinions she has followed in the papers for years. But it is the mysterious and dashing Noel Paxton who stirs her senses, even as she mistrusts his motives in befriending her, a bluestocking spinster from the country.
In his quest to expose a dangerous spy and traitor, Noel has taken on the persona of the legendary Saint of Seven Dials. When he meets Miss Riverstone, he is first distracted, then fascinated, for she is clearly more than she appears on the surface--but what? Merely a highly educated--and opinionated--innocent, or the very traitor he seeks? Finding out promises to be both dangerous and delicious. But will his heart be at even greater risk than his life?
Originally published by Avon Books, this is the third book in Brenda Hiatt's "The Saint of Seven Dials" series.
