Sir James Mitchell, Lord Penventen is a man on a mission.
The death of his father brings him home to England to a society he no longer cares for, but keeping him there is a personal promise he made to no lesser person than the Prime Minister of England, William Pitt the Younger.
As a spy for the Crown he enlists the aid of a merchant fleet captain but James immediately captivated by the man’s independently minded sister, Selina, much to the ire of Lady Abigail, James’ one-time lover.
What makes James a hunky hero is his wit, intelligence and his sense of duty. He may have done questionable things in the past but he is determined to chart a new course in his life, inspired by the unjaded honesty of Selina.
There is a vulnerability about him that he is not afraid to acknowledge. He heart was severely bruised by Lady Abigail and his attitude to marriage jaded by the poor example set by his own parents, yet he is willing to take the risk that Selina understands the man he really is.
