A spy for the British Government, Lord Joshua Sherbourne Faringdon must foster his notoriety as a rake as a front for his secret activities. Until an undercover exercise almost costs him his life.

Miss Sarah Russell, newly appointed housekeeper, knows only of her lord's rakish reputation. She's unprepared for his surprise proposal of marriage and the way her body responds to him!

Burning desire turns to passion for Joshua and Sarah, until rumors and whisperings rear their ugly heads. Who is the shadow following Sarah's every move? What did actually happen to Joshua's late wife? What is this intriguing man hiding...?

I had this book around for quite a while but just got around to reading it, and I was surprised how enjoyable it was. It kept me up late, finishing the story! It's a little bit angsty but not too much. I liked that the heroine was slightly older, a widow with a young son. I also liked that even though the heroine has her doubts about the hero, the reader also sees his point of view and we know that he is acting honorably. The spy subplot is fairly believable. I also didn't realize it was the 3rd of a trilogy, now I how have to go read The Disgraced Marchioness and The Outrageous Debutante.
