Reeling from her brother’s death, beautiful American spy Claire Brooks has vowed revenge on the member of The Company who she believes to be responsible: Stanton Howard. But when she chases the man to London, Claire is captured by the Wardens of the Realm and placed in the custody of the Earl of Wolfred, the dashing Alistair Payne.

Seeing the prospect of retribution slipping away, Claire convinces Alistair that she has defected and will help him take down The Company. As they travel via steam liner, Claire and Alistair must pretend to be engaged. Claire can’t deny the growing attraction she feels for her pretend husband, but when Howard is finally within her reach, she will have to decide whether her true loyalties lie with The Company or with her heart…

A great steampunk romance. Claire has her own agenda in the capture of another Company agent. She gives herself up to the Wardens to get him. Alistar Wolford doesn't trust her motives as they work together to capture him. He has been betrayed once already by a Company agent. Claire will work with him if she can find the man who killed her brother. Cross really brings the Steampunk world to life. I can hardly wait to read the next story of her world.
