"Irish rebellion, smuggled guns, and the assassination of American president James Garfield form a lively backdrop for this sweet, sexy, and smartly told Victorian romance."
An innocent mistake at a diplomatic gathering leads British agent and reputed Irish rogue, Michael Rafferty, to mistake Lady Arianne Chambers as a traitor's mistress instead of the acknowledged matchmaker, "Cupid's Mistress." She accuses him of being common and disrespectful, striking at his pride and accidentally re-injuring his lip in a highly public insult. He takes solace that they will never meet again...until they do at the Home Office. Lady Arianne has been asked to "polish" Rafferty's rough edges so he may masquerade as a British diplomat in the newly emerging Washington D.C. legation while solving a murder.
Anxious to leave London before her brothers learn of her fall from grace, Lady Arianne Chambers, sister of a duke and well-versed in diplomatic etiquette, agrees to teach proper manners to an agent as they travel by steamer across the Atlantic. Of course, that was before she learned the British agent was that uncouth Irish rogue. But she needs a quick escape from scandal and this trip will accomplish that goal. She'll be protected from her brothers' wrath, but will she need protection from the passionate man hidden beneath a tough Irish exterior?
