Pricess Clio of Akora travels to England to stay with friends of the family. She meets the Earl of Hollister, who is a secret agent for the Queen, and helps him in his investigation.
In a family of women who possessed uncommon powers of seeing and knowing, Princess Clio of Akora was blessedly ordinary. Or so she thought, until her trip to England - and the visions. Had her fascinations with the past caused her to hallucinate - or had the ancestral gift finally awakened in her? She feared it was the latter. The gift was a sure signal of impending peril - and these were tense times for a nation mourning the death of their king and skeptical of their young queen. But what was Clio's part in it? And might her compelling host, the master of Holyhood, be involved?
William, earl of Hollister, had never met a woman like Clio. The ladies he knew would never rummage for relics in ancient crypts, emerging muddied - and undeniably lovely. Her spirit had him dazzled - and determined to get her out of Holyhood immediately. As a secret agent guarding Queen Victoria from assassination, Will is prepared to risk himself, but not Clio. Yet Clio cannot ignore the danger her gift foretells - or her attraction to Will. When the dark hour comes, they will have to trust the power of their burgeoning love to save them - and England.
Good follow up to the rest of the trilogy. Loved this story!
