Lady Adele Prescott is dead. At least that’s what the whole of London society believes. After recovering from her injuries in secret, she knows she should remain in hiding. But nothing will keep her from taking a position as a maid in the home of the lord she believes murdered her family.
Christopher Underwood, former military man and amateur inventor, wants no part of society or his newly acquired title. He spends his time in seclusion hiding from the ghosts of his past. When he discovers his new maid bears a striking resemblance to the dead daughter of his former partner, a dangerous plan takes root in his mind.
Secrets and lies may bind them, but only the truth will set them free.

About the Author
Stick her in the middle of a chaotic home with two children, a hyperactive dog, and a camouflage wearing husband, and she can cook and clean with the best of them. But when the sun goes down and the children are nestled in bed fast asleep, she tucks away her pots and broom and like Cinderella she transforms. Her characters creep forth from the dark recesses of her mind taking their places in the castles and forests built from her words. No simpering heroines linger there with forlorn gazes turned to the horizon, waiting for their Prince Charming. They straighten their spine, arming themselves with blade and bow, prepared to do their part in defense of their honor and destiny. She breathes life into the women she believes our ancestors to be, showing how they lived and loved with passion and grace. Never bored by the tales still left to tell, she battles the ever sarcastic muse in her quest for romance.
