Blurb:
John Haldane, Earl of Strathairn, is on an urgent mission to find
the killer of his fellow spy. After visiting the young widow of one of his
agents, Strathairn strengthens his resolve. A spy should never marry, and most
certainly not to Lady Sibella Winborne, with her romantic ideas of love and
marriage. Unable to give Sibella up entirely, he has kept her close as a
friend. Then, weak fool that he is, he kissed her.
Lady Sibella Winborne has refused several offers of marriage since
she first set eyes on the handsome Earl of Strathairn. Sibella’s many siblings
always rush to her aid to discourage an ardent suitor, but not this time. Her
elder brother, Chaloner, Marquess of Brandreth, has approved Lord Coombe’s
suit.  Sibella yearns to set up her own
household. She is known to be the sensible member of the family, but she
doesn’t feel at all sensible about Lord Strathairn. If only she could forget
that kiss.
Excerpt:
Sibella’s brother Edward stood at
her shoulder. “I’ve come to claim you for the next dance, before any of your
admirers beat me to it.”
           
“I shouldn’t worry, many are losing
interest,” she said crisply, rising from her chair.
           
He eyed her as they entered the
dance floor. “Losing hope, more like.”
           
As they moved through the steps of
the quadrille, he dropped quiet remarks in her ear.
           
“Give up on Strathairn, Sib.”
           
“I don’t believe, I—” They parted,
and by the time the steps brought them back together, she’d given up
protesting. Edward had inherited their mother’s astute nature.
           
“It’s not that I don’t like him. I
do very much. But he’s not for you.”
           
“You needn’t worry. He doesn’t wish
to marry.”
           
Her brother raised a black eyebrow.
“Oh, I believe you could sway him toward marriage, if you set your mind to it.
That’s not the reason.”
           
“Then what is the reason?”
           
“Chaloner hears things in the House
of Lords. I can’t repeat them.”
           
“So he tells you but not me.”
           
Edward shrugged with a smile and
moved away.
           
“Why does such mystery surround the
Earl of Strathairn?” she hissed at him when she next got a chance.
           
He shook his head. She’d learn no
more.
