The Necklace by Amy Corwin Archer Family Series Prequel Chilton Dacy was not the man people thought him to be. From the outside he looked like a drunken womanizer. The drinking did help with war injury, of course, but the rest...he worked uncover for the Foreign Secretary. His latest job had nothing to do with that though. No, his overbearing father has sent him on a mission to recover what his stepmother foolishly lost. Oriana Archer accepted she was to be a lonely spinster. Trying to keep her younger sister in control and watching over her uncle. A man following in their ancestors steps of gambling...and losing. And now that Helen had retrieved Uncle John once again, her sister not only brought their uncle home to The Orchards, but also a handsome stranger. A man she didn't trust...but was still pulled towards. Loved this story. Chilton has gone way beyond his duty to follow his father's orders. He befriended this strange family and has begun to like them. And is hating that he has to deceive them. He managed to gain a dog on his journey as well. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of this series. Romance that usually includes a mystery...most likely a murder. **A touch of sensual content
