Overview

Love cannot be bought or bartered, and a marriage may be built on the finest of threads.

Delilah, the smart and likable daughter of an ambitious merchant, fell in love with Charles Everett from afar. While she married for love, Charles only married her to salvage his aristocratic family's disreputable accounts. Believing she had no more interest in a real marriage than he did, he abandoned her after their wedding night to seek honor in the war against Napoleon.

Now, six years later, he returns, vested as Lord Dragoner but embroiled in secrets and controversy, to insist she free herself by divorce. Delilah has never stopped hoping he would one day return to her, the beautiful man with pain blazing in his eyes. She longs for them to build a happy family, like the one she grew up with, and she'll do whatever it takes to win him over.

English divorce laws require the wife be discovered in an act of adultery, and Charles decides he cannot subject her to such an ordeal. He leaves on a mission that may take his life. Following him to France, Delilah is caught up in the dangerous life he leads. Dragoner, surprised to find himself working with a partner equally intrepid and wily, begins to see her in a whole new light. But if they are to create a future together, they must escape intact from officials and criminals determined to chase them down.

She will risk her own life to prove he is far more heroic than his bittersweet mysteries might reveal and that they do have a marriage of the heart.

    Delilah has been waiting five years for her husband to appear. S

    Delilah has been waiting five years for her husband to appear. She wants to have a real marriage and would love to have children.  Unknown to Dragoner, Delilah picked him after carefully examining several eligible gentlemen.

    Dragoner marries Delilah because his parents need money and Delilah's father wanted a title. He comes to his wedding drunk and disappears right after the wedding night.

    Dragoner suddenly appears in England and Delilah is hoping for a chance to make their marriage a true one. Unfortunately, Dragoner has returned to seek a divorce. He thinks that Delilah will want the divorce as much as he does.

    When Dragoner discovers that getting a divorce in England is not as easy as he assumes, he allows Delilah to persuade him to take some time to finalize a decision. Dragoner heads back to France and his life of a spy for Wellington.

    Not knowing that Dragoner's reputation is made up to cover his life as a spy, Delilah follows him to France in hopes of learning that his reputation is not as bad as she has heard. As soon as she arrives, Dragoner tells Delilah to go back to England. Unfortunately for him, she doesn't listen.  Delilah is soon caught up in spying business and learns that all is not as it seems.

    I enjoyed reading this book, but I have to say that it took me a little while to get into it.  I'd read a little here and a little there. It wasn't until about the second half of the book that it caught my attention enough to sit for a longer period of time to read it.
