Caro Hill, heir to a thriving Sheffield cutlery firm, wants to verify her widowhood so she can remarry. Believing his wife long dead, army officer Christian Hill, Viscount Grandiston, is wary as questions arise about Jack Hill, the name he used ten years earlier when he was forced to marry the very young Dorcas Froggatt after killing her erstwhile groom-to-be. When Mr. Grandiston arrives looking for Dorcas, Caro takes on several disguises to squash any threat to her fortune and her future. Their days together offer passion and danger but very little truth as neither realizes they are falling in love with their spouse. This charming, witty, and sultry tale, the second in the author's "Secrets" trilogy (A Lady's Secret), deftly captures the spirit and flavor of Georgian England. Beverley lives in Canada.
