In Stefanie Sloaneâ€™s spirited and witty new series of intrigue and passion, a dedicated spy learns the meaning of surrender. Â To Young Corinthian agent Marcus MacInnes, the Earl of Weston, his latest mission involving a smuggling ring with ties to Napoleon seems ridiculous at first, but becomes all too threatening as pieces of the puzzle begin to fall into place. And the most troubling piece of all? Miss Sarah Tisdale, an unconventional beauty whose lust for life is rivaled only by her ability to drive Marcus to distraction. When her family comes under suspicion, Marcus must watch her very closelyâ€”even if her touch ignites the fiery desire burning beneath his cool faĂ§ade. When it comes to suitors, Sarahâ€™s lush curves and kissable lips arenâ€™t enough to compensate for her willful nature. Sheâ€™s tasted disappointment before, but flirting with the sinfully handsome Marcus is a pastime worth savoringâ€”even when it leads to wicked pleasures. When Sarahâ€™s life is in jeopardy, Marcus discovers that the passion between them can no longer be deniedâ€”and heâ€™ll do anything to keep her in his arms.
