If anyone could locate Grey Sommers, Lord Wyndham, it would be Cassie Fox. Ten years ago, Sommers disappeared while on a routine spy mission in France. Now rumors have surfaced that he might very well be alive and imprisoned in Castle Durand. With her years of experience spying for the British and her ability to disguise herself and blend anonymously into the background, Cassie is the perfect agent for the mission. Indeed, she successfully infiltrates Castle Durand and rescues both Grey and a fellow prisoner. As they journey back to England and safety, Cassie does her best to remain professionally detached, only to find herself hopelessly falling for Grey, instead. The two engage in a passionate affair, which Cassie knows must end once Grey resumes his old life as a titled lord. The always reliable Putney imbues the latest installment in her elegantly written Lost Lords series with richly nuanced characters and an entrancing plot packed with an abundance of sizzling sexual chemistry and dangerous intrigue. --John Charles
