Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Secret Wedding, a classic Regency romance back in print and in trade paperback for the first time.

Though the widowed Chloe Stanforth loves her house by the sea, a series of puzzling incidents has left her unsettled and anxious to find a new home. Her situation is complicated by the arrival of her husband's cousin, for whom she has long harbored a deep and guilty attraction.

Back from the war, Justin Delamere hopes he can finally woo Chloe, until he suspects her guilty of treason-and murder. Can he trust the woman he's always desired, and can Chloe surrender her most private secrets to the man who controls her freedom and now her heart?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Chloe, one of the widowed ladies of Stanforth, awaits with relief the arrival of the new lord, Justin Delamere. She is eager to escape the isolated manor for London: Strange things have been happening around the manor for the past year, including a peculiar interest by many people in apples. Apples? However, Chloe doesn't anticipate falling in love with the new Lord Stanforth. Justin himself desperately wants Chloe to stay, but is wary of her possible involvement in the strange occurrences, which he has been asked by the government to secretly investigate. A typical romance in the Regency style, with a puzzling mystery and some light comedy added, this is an entertaining novel. Recommended for libraries that collect this genre.-- Leslie A. Bleil, Western Michigan Univ. Lib., Kalamazoo
