Robin suggests that he see her safely to England, and Petra accepts, never thinking that they will fall in love along the way or that Robin will end up in danger because of her. Well-matched, charming protagonists banter beautifully as they play a game of double deception. This cleverly plotted story rewards readers with a captivating blend of thrilling adventure, steamy sensuality, and gratifying emotion, as well as a surprise link to some of Beverley's earlier titles. Another flawless Georgian gem. Beverley (Lady Beware) lives in Canada.
