From a #1 New York Times–bestselling author: A lady spy in Victorian England finds more than her double life compromised in this seductive historical romance. Evelyn Hadley-Attwater has it all: a genteel life replete with a loving husband, ball gowns, and elegant parties. No one, including the man she married, suspects that she was once a spy for England’s most enigmatic intelligence agency. Summoned for one final assignment, the excitement of her former life and memories of her mysterious, flirtatious boss—known only as “Sir”—prove too tempting to ignore. Eve’s husband, Adrian, Earl of Waterston, is a respectable, dignified gentleman. But even the most proper noblemen have secrets of their own. Adrian has kept his from the rest of the world, from his family, and even from his wife. But as Eve’s behavior becomes more furtive, and more suspect, their clandestine worlds will collide. Now, as a veil of secrecy frays, a tantalizing game of cat and mouse will test the bounds of unfailing love. “Alexander delights with a strong heroine, dashing hero, and unexpected plot twists with a heavy dose of humor . . . making this Victorian romp fun, passionate, and funny.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

Genre: Fiction

From a #1 New York Times bestselling author: A proper lady in Victorian England is making a name for herself—in a deliciously improper way. Widowed and nearly destitute, Julia, Lady Winterset, has inherited a book—a very shocking book—that every gentleman in London seems to want. For a charismatic businessman, it’s a chance to build an empire. For a dashing novelist, it could guarantee fame. But to a proud, domineering earl, it means everything: It’s his great-grandmother’s scandalous unpublished memoirs and it could ruin his family’s reputation. Harrison Landingham, Earl of Mountdale, can’t let the obstinate Julia release the shameless confessional and tarnish the Landingham name. But the only way to stop her may be equally sordid—if far more pleasurable. His rivals are intent on seducing the captivating woman to get everything they want. Harrison isn’t the sort to back away from a competition, especially with stakes this high—because the winner will claim both the notorious journals and the heart of the lovely lady. “With a delectably dry sense of humor that rivals Oscar Wilde at his best . . . Alexander fashions the perfect romance . . . exceptionally entertaining.” —Booklist, starred review “Warm, witty and wise.” —Julia Quinn, New York Times–bestselling author
