Lady Evelyn Renshaw has been ostracized by Society when her husband turned into a traitor. She has been going through the days as best she can while trying to avoid the interference of her sisters. Captain Sinjon Rutherford is in London trying to clear his name from the charges of treason and rape. When the Earl of Westlake offers to help Sinjon clear his name if Sinjon will spy on Evelyn as her footman, Sinjon accepts the offer. Of course the pair are attracted to one and start an affair despite the apparent differences in social status and the uncertainty as to Evelyn¿s role in her husband¿s treason. When the search for a missing French flag risks Evelyn¿s life, Sinjon has to reveal the truth, clear his name and protect Evelyn in order to assure their future. Although the characters overcome the impossible to be together, seeing how they come together does make for an interesting story.

Where is Lord Renshaw? Lady Evelyn Renshaw is disgraced by her missing husband&rsquo;s treachery (a personal brute; a thief; a supporter of Napoleon); she's barely tolerated by the ton, and by her three silly, gossipy sisters as well. The arranged marriage to the cold Renshaw has greatly undermined her self worth. Watched day and night by the Crown and assorted French spies, the object of much malicious gossip, Evelyn nevertheless manages to keep her chin up. Attacked in the park, she is rescued by Capt. Sinjon Rutherford who is on his way to a duel. He&rsquo;s in hiding and on the run for having been accused by Lord Creighton, his superior officer &ndash; a snake &ndash; of rape, theft, treason, but his honor as an officer and a gentleman comes to the fore as he routs Evelyn's attacker. Sinjin is also thwarted from keeping his appointment to duel Lord Creighton, by the British officers who are also in the park. And he is pressed into service for the Crown with their promise to let him prove his innocence of the crimes. Thus Sinjin finds himself seeking the position of a footman ("Sam Carr") to Lady Evelyn. Once we get beyond their many torrid love scenes, the real action takes place, and the story gets into gear.
