Lady Sophia Merrill has defiantly taken up justice's shining sword, determined to expose the brigand who murdered her eccentric but brilliant father, and stole his latest invention. Now she must masquerade as Robert's betrothed in order to infiltrate the Inventor's Society and find the killer. But the undeniable potent attraction between them not only imperils the investigation, but Sophia's reputation... and both of their lives.
Enjoy an excerpt:
Sophia Merrill had seconds to comprehend it all. Robert roughly wrapped his arm around her waist and pulled her against a mainmast of solid, male muscle. Through the black half mask she could make out brilliant blue eyes, their color like polished sapphires, and then his mouth covered hers with commanding mastery. Beneath the hardness of his lips she felt instantly overwhelmed and overpowered. The heat from his body enveloped her; the faint scent of his cologne coiled about her. Heart fluttering wildly, she raised her palms to press against his chest.
The door slammed against the wall.
“What are you two doing in here?” a male voice boomed.
Delmont’s guard was a bald, brawny man with a square jaw and a bulbous nose.
Sophia jerked in alarm, but the arms of her tawny-haired captor tightened around her waist. Glancing down, he gave her a pointed keep-your-mouth-shut look.
Then he turned to the guard, and a guiltless smile curved his lips. “Ah, the lady and I desired a bit of privacy.” Slurring his speech, he sounded like a guest who had made one too many trips to the punch bowl.
Masking her surprise, she went along with the ruse. Her position was precarious, and even if she did not know what his motives were, her own were not innocent, nothing she desired to be brought to Viscount Delmont’s attention. Her disguise, the red wig and mask, wouldn’t fool the viscount for long, and her identity was something she couldn’t risk revealing.
For some reason, this mysterious man—the man who had called himself Robert—was bent on protecting her.
