Reeling from her brother's death, beautiful American spy Claire Brooks has vowed revenge on the member of The Company who she believes to be responsible: Stanton Howard. But when she chases the man to London, Claire is captured by the Wardens of the Realm and placed in the custody of the Earl of Wolfred, the dashing Alastair Payne. Seeing the prospect of retribution slipping away, Claire convinces Alastair that she has defected and will help him take down The Company. As they travel via train, Claire and Alastair must pretend to be engaged. Claire can't deny the growing attraction she feels for her pretend fiance, but when Howard is finally within her reach, she will have to decide whether her true loyalties lie with The Company or with her heart"--Publisher's description.
