Overview

Someone is trying to kill Lady Penelope Leighton's father, and now the fiend has turned his sights on her. Frightened, she flees London masquerading as a traveling companion for her elderly aunt.

When William Smith, the Earl of Westerly, arrives in London to a hero's welcome he does not want, he takes the stewardship at his cousin's manor in Wakefield-by-the-Sea to escape. He is more than surprised when he meets the mysterious Miss Penny Higgins residing there with a persnickety duchess.

Miss Higgins' unfathomable beauty and stunning intellect are in direct contrast to her dowdy clothes and recurring stutter. William discerns the ladies are in trouble, it's obvious they are in hiding, and William means to find out why, but no one is talking.

Before either of them realizes it, they've lost their hearts - Penny to a man who she thinks is a steward, and William to a woman destined for a duke.

After Penny's true identity and reason for hiding are revealed to William, he immediately engages his friends in a campaign to help catch the blackguard who threatens her. However, upon their return to London, a confounding chain of events leads them right into the villain's trap. Can William save her before it's too late?

Meet the Author

Anne Gallagher was a professional chef for over twenty years. Now she writes sweet, Regency Romance with heroines who are not afraid to speak their minds. Her heroes, on the other hand, do not realize when they've met their match. Sparks fly, sexual tension sizzles, but never spills out of the pan, so-to-speak. Anne believes you don't have to end up in the bedroom to have a good book.

Currently, Anne Gallagher lives in the Foothills of the Piedmont in North Carolina with her daughter, three dogs, and a cat named Henry David Thoreau.
