Seb Leatham, agent of the secret King’s Elite, is recuperating at the home of Bella and Dr. Joe Warriner after being shot trying to catch the leader of a smuggling ring linked to Napoleon. He is bored, tired and can’t wait to get back to work. When the beautiful Lady Clarissa, Bella’s sister, comes to visit he’s tongue tied and shy. He realizes Clarissa is too perfect and wonders what she’s hiding.

Clarissa has wanted to marry the Duke of Westbridge since she met him. He’s sent roses for years but never proposes. When Seb, undercover as Lord Millcroft, sees her at a ball he realizes he must convince her not to give him away. She thinks spending time with “Millcroft” will make the Duke jealous. They all attend a house party at Viscount Penhurst’s home near the coast. Clarissa’s best friend, Penny, is married to Penhurst who is not an ideal husband. Seb is suspicious of Penhurst and has agents hidden up and down the coast hoping to catch the smugglers in the act. Surprisingly, Clarissa is very good at covering for him and making plans. She realizes the Duke is not for her, but Seb might be.

This is a wonderful story and I’ll not say what happens to the smugglers or the suspects. You will have to discover Clarissa’s secret and how Seb reacts for yourself. No spoilers from me as this book has twists and turns. Virginia Heath is an automatic buy for me.
