He’ll do anything to keep her safe…even if it means breaking her heart.
Elizabeth Thornwood is a countess. A singularly lonely countess. Having produced the heir and the spare, she has been left to rusticate in the country. Not content to wait in a shroud of memories, she packs up the boys and heads to London, determined to have her husband back in her life…and in her bed.
Richard Thornwood loves his wife. When she surprises him in London and is clearly bent on seduction, he fears he might not be able to hold to the promise he made to himself the night she almost died—to do everything in his power to keep her safe. So, when the opportunity to do some intelligence gathering arises, he seizes it. It’s the perfect solution. He can assist in the war against Napoleon and avoid Elizabeth.
Richard finds the game of espionage daunting, but the cat and mouse game of temptation Elizabeth plays at home is far more dangerous.
How can he let her win, when it means losing everything?
