From the bestselling, award-winning author of Vanity and Violet comes a lush adventure as darkly sensual as velvet.
Clad in black velvet and posing as a widowed French comtesse, Gabrielle de Beaucaire had returned to England for one purpose only—to ruin the man responsible for her young lover’s death. But convincing the forbidding Nathaniel Praed, England’s greatest spymaster, that she would make the perfect agent for his secret service would not be easy. And even after Gabrielle had lured the devastatingly attractive lord to her bed, she would have to contend with his distrust—and with the unexpected hunger that his merest touch aroused.
From the moment he met her, Nathaniel Praed knew that the alluring Gabrielle de Beaucaire spelled trouble. But though he fought her outrageously bold advances, he could not stem the turbulent hunger that swept through him when the tall, titian-haired vixen pressed her lips to his. Now, against his better judgment, she is in his employ. And as Europe trembles at a tyrant’s war and sinister minds plot against them, Nathaniel and Gabrielle find themselves at the mercy of an exquisite passion . . . and a love that could save—or destroy—both of their lives.

I read this book some time ago. It is an excellent book, I would like to get it in hardcover as a reprinted copy for my collection. I am of fan of Ms. Feather and the story of these to lovers had me both thrilled as well tears. The main characters reacted to each at first was not love at first sight, but suspision. It took much convincing but finally they started to understanding one another in order to develope true feeling. There is much intrigue and misunderstanding in this book, but it is well written and worth any price.
