When Jeb receives a note from his father summoning him home urgently, family duty forces him to leave his investigations for the Star Elite and head back to rural Hertfordshire. What he doesn’t expect to find in the sleepy village of his youth is a thief, a murderer, and the most strangely intriguing woman he has ever set eyes on.
Sophia has a lot to be afraid of. Unsure who she can trust she is forced to take drastic action to prevent her aunt, and herself, being carted off to jail. Unfortunately, she is caught in a rather compromising situation by a rather too handsome for his own good stranger who, together with his father, poses a serious threat to her future.
Drawn together through the deceit of others, Sophia and Jeb are forced to confront not only the desire that throws their lives into turmoil, but the doubts and suspicions that surround them.
Can a future ever be theirs when lies begin to unravel and a killer is revealed in their midst? Or will Jeb’s work for the Star Elite, work that he thought he had left behind in London, lead to a new set of dangers that threaten both of their lives?
