Not one of Thornton's better romantic mystery stories, a bit slow going and meanders.
Story begins in England, 1815. Brand Hamilton, the illegitimate son of a duke, owns a chain of newspapers and has a promising future in politics. Lady Marion Dane has an unseen enemy stalking her, and it seems that Brand is the only one who can help her. Another great love story with lots if intrigue and mystery from one of my favorite authors, Elizabeth Thornton.
brand Hamilton is a man that is interested in politics and he needs a wife. Marion thinks that she would make him the perfect wife because she is the daughter of an earl. she has some man blackmailing her for money. Her parents weren't married so he said and she couldn't find a marriage certificate for them. but Brand hamilton had other plans for her.
