They are masters of charades, but can they fool their hearts?
Countess Sophia Tessaro is the toast of London. A wealthy widow, she is free to do as she pleases…and she does. Courted by a duke, surrounded by admirers and good friends, she has created the perfect façade for spying on the elite and aiding Britain in its intelligence operations. Her goal is to see the end of the little emperor in France. Only then can she find a measure of peace from the past.
Gaston Armand, the Marquis de Lyon, has never forgotten the girl who saved him from the streets of Paris during the storming of the Bastille. Nor has he forgiven her for betraying him years later. He seeks Sophia out for one purpose. To hurt her as she had him. But the woman she has become confounds him, and he wants to both walk away and hold her in his arms once again.
When Gaston threatens Sophia’s carefully constructed persona, she agrees to his proposal—to allow him integral involvement in her life for one month. She is determined to see him gone when the agreement ends.
Gaston has other plans. Can he recapture the heart that long ago stole his?
