From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Olivia Drake, a witty, adventurous Regency romance…
Mysterious rogue, Lord Gabriel Kenyon has been abroad for the past four years. When he returns to London, he discovers, unhappily, that he is now the legal guardian to two spirited young ladies! And that one of those young ladies is the same one who unsuccessfully propositioned him when she was just sixteen…
Kate Talisford and her sister, Meg, are forced to live with meager means after the death of their father, Professor Henry Talisford—though they both miss him dearly, they make do with what they have and are proud of their independence. When Lord Gabriel Kenyon arrives and informs them that their father has put them under the Lord’s legal guardianship, Kate is especially incensed—and more than a little embarrassed.
But Gabriel hasn’t forgotten the spitfire, nor is he surprised to see what a lovely and feisty young woman she’s become. When he moves them to his estate, Stokeford Abbey, they realize that one of Professor Talisford’s most prized artifacts has been stolen!
Gabriel can’t keep his eyes off of Kate—she’s become a sultry beauty unlike any other and she continues to surprise him at every turn. As they search for missing artifact, they realize that thieves must have had something to do with Professor Talisford’s death. Treachery and danger lie around every corner as they hunt for both artifact and truth—but the most risky of all is the chance for a true love…
