From the back cover: Ravishingly beautiful Countess Magda Janos was the toast of Paris and the center of a swarm of suitors. But who was this gorgeous creature? Two men knew the truth about her. Attractive, charming Robert Anderson, the black sheep blue-blood, was her intimate ally in her life of dazzling deception. The other, was the devastatingly handsome Duke of Candover, who arrived from Regency London to damand that the controversial countess pretend to be his mistress in a dangerous game of intrigue. Which presented this lady of mystery with a duet of perils as she risked being unmasked by the domineering duke....and undone by love.
Apparently, the Duke of Candover, does get his own love story. This is a sequel to The Would Be Widow. It is a mystery/love story. Well done, characters are likeable. Heroine is of a different source, being older and very self-sufficient. A Good Read.
loved it! loved the longer version Petals in the Storm, too.
