A rollicking historical adventure from New York Times bestselling author Candace Camp, originally published in 1997.
Benedict Wincross appears in Camilla Ferrand’s life as quickly as the gunfire pursuing him. Though he is obviously no gentleman, Camilla realizes Benedict may be just what she needs: a temporary fiancé to satisfy her family’s worries.
And Benedict needs something in return: an entrée into Chevington Park, Camilla’s estate, to conduct an undercover investigation into corruption—without Camilla’s knowledge. Each is drawing the other into a dangerous deceit—for even if they survive the danger of Benedict’s mission, what will they do about the love that’s grown between them?
