From Booklist

It isn’t that Mari Osborne didn’t want to kill Lord Rashleigh; it’s just that someone else beat her to it. Rashleigh had summoned Mari to a notorious tavern in London to discuss blackmail terms, but before they have a chance to talk, Rashleigh is found dead. Major Nick Falconer also happened to be at the tavern for a chat with his disreputable cousin Rashleigh, and when he sees a disguised Mari with Rashleigh mere moments before his cousin is found stabbed to death, he assumes she is the murderer. Nick traces the card left on the body to Yorkshire, where he discovers that Mari just might be “Glory,” the notorious leader of an all-female band of highway robbers. Nick is determined to seduce the truth from Mari, but he didn’t wager on matching wits with a women who has perfected the art of keeping secrets. RITA Award–nominated Cornick deftly steeps her latest intriguingly complex Regency historical in a beguiling blend of danger and desire. --John Charles

I was bored and had ordered a triogy novel with Cathy Maxwell and Nicole Cornick had a section of the book. I read it and I liked it so I ordered more of her books. Now she in on my preferred list of Author's. Well written,fast read and chacters are well developed, plus she had several charters with teasers for a sequel. Now I search her books for these characters so I can read their stories.The only regative is NO PROLOG and I love the prolog.

In 1805 the Home Secretary loudly orders Major Nick Falconer to investigate the murder of his odious cousin and to go to Yorkshire to destroy the infamous Glory Girls gang. Nick prefers to do neither, but immediately races off for Yorkshire before his superior rips more skin off his back.

In Yorkshire, Nick meets Widow Mari Osborne; whereas he swears they met in London on the same night his cousin died, she insists they never met before. A bit taken aback as he knows she has no twin or doppelganger, Nick concludes she is lying although he cannot fathom why. He decides to make her his priority as he is attracted to her, but he remains unaware that the two other cases his superior has made Nick's will soon tie together through the woman he loves.

Robin "Hood-ettes" inside a regency romance make for a merry tale filled with suspense and murder. The story line is fast-paced from the moment that the government operative and the widow meet and never slows down as he investigates her secrets while she tries to nudge him onto false trails filled with red herrings. That passion called love makes for strange bedfellows as Nicolas Cornick provides an enjoyable historical cat and mouse tale.

This is the first book I read from Nicola Cornick. I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you like Lisa Kleypas and Mary Balogh, you will love this book.
