In 1938, as the world stands anxiously on the precipice of World War II, an unassuming young woman is unknowingly about to be caught up in events that could change history.
While in Germany to improve her linguistic skills, university student Ailsa Sinclair visits the British Embassy, where she has a chance encounter with a dashing British diplomat named Tarquin Forbes. While attending a reception with him at the embassy, she is introduced to a powerful and prominent Nazi politician, Rudolph Hess, Hitler's deputy führer-and a man who will soon play a significant role in Ailsa's future.
Caught up in the passion and excitement of her whirlwind romance with Tarquin and the escalating conflict of World War II, Ailsa soon finds herself tangled up in one of the most important secrets of the war-a secret that could destroy the British government and Ailsa in the process. What she and Tarquin uncover along the way shakes them to their very core and threatens the love and happiness they have found together.
Paradox is an edge-of-your-seat thriller that takes readers on a side-winding adventure fraught with intrigue, suspense, and a romance that rises above it all.
