Synopsis:

London, 1814

Remington Hawthorne, Earl of Latham, has spent his life protecting the Crown. When he’s assigned to play the part of lover to Emma Masterson, one of the few female spies in England and the one woman he can’t forget, he’ll have to risk his heart as well as his life.
It isn’t easy being an independent woman, much less a spy. Perpetually tasked with proving she is as valuable as any man in her profession, the last thing Emma needs is to be reunited with the one man who makes her want to forget her duties and get lost in passion.

Pretending to be his mistress isn’t difficult—remembering that it is all a charade is the challenge. With every glance, every touch, every kiss, she is drawn deeper under his spell and pulled further from her goals. She refused him once, but it will take every ounce of strength to not give in to the passion that still burns strong…

Excerpt:

Prologue

June 1812, Paris

Emily Masterson lay quietly on the small bed. A screen separated her from
her partner who, by the sound of everything, had already awakened and was
moving about their small flat. The rich aroma of his tea steeping permeated
the little privacy she had in their dwelling. She noted every one of his
steps, though he moved quietly.

Chapter One

Two years later
August, 1814, London

Emma couldn’t breathe.
If she stayed in this closet for much longer, she was certain to expire, or
at the very least, faint. What little air there was clogged her nostrils and
coated her tongue. She was going to suggest the housekeeper air out the
closet and beat the dust from every item, assuming she survived this
encounter. Her charges were long in bed, and Lady Comfry had taken laudanum
for a headache and probably wouldn’t awaken until tomorrow afternoon.

Chapter Two
Emma Masterson.
Remy Hawthorne did his best to school his features as he returned to his
seat. It had been two years since he’d left her in Paris, since her
assignment to seduce Comte Gibrault. Remy had made certain she’d be safe
working with another member of the Seven, one he trusted, and then he left.
He knew she’d accomplished her task because they’d acquired the necessary
intelligence from Gibrault.

Chapter Three

The following morning, Emma felt remarkably well rested. She’d fully
expected a restless night, but after a long soak in the hot bath and some
bread and tea to settle her stomach, she’d fallen asleep. The last image in
her mind hadn’t been of Lord Comfry’s dying breath, but instead was Remy’s
expression as he stood at the foot of the stairs. He’d been so earnest with
his concern.

Chapter Four

Remy was thankful for the darkened carriage. He didn’t want Emma to see how
much the kiss had affected him as well. He’d kissed her for one reason only:
to startle her out of her prim and proper facade, to cut to the woman
beneath all the propriety. He hadn’t anticipated enjoying the feel of her
against him so much. He’d thought his desire for her long since dead, yet
his blood still hummed with lust.
