Everything began with a statue molded by innocent Miss Jane Higgenbothem whose infatuation with Lord Blackburn took the form of a nude sculpture of the nobleman. Jane fled London in disgrace. She stayed in the country until now, eleven years later, when she returns to town as her nieces chaperone for The Season.

The ton hasnt forgotten the unveiling. Blackburn hasnt forgotten the kiss he shared with Jane, nor being societys laughingstock (Jane only put one very small fig leaf on her Blackburn).

She presents an interesting challenge to his manhood and maybe the key to a French spy network as well. Thus, Blackburn is tempted to court Jane for himself and his country.

I thought the storyline was a good one but never fully got into the book. The main characters were unlikeable.

Great book with lots of plot twists and things going on--the romance between the main characters, some minor character romance, spy chasing, etc--plenty of "hot" scenes too.

A Disastrous Season

A simple statue began the scandal.

A Lady Concealed

An innocent English miss conceived of it, her hands gliding across the clay, delineating each smoothly defined muscle and sinew, creating a sculpture of the man she worshipped. When the likeness was exposed, along with Miss Jane Higgenbothem's secret tendre for Lord Blackburn, the ton's gleeful contempt sent the lady back to the country in disgrace.

A Gentleman Revealed

Now, a decade later, she's back in London, as a chaperone to her beautiful niece. But to Blackburn, Jane's unwitting model, the cool, reticent spinster is still a challenge. She once made the arrogant rake a laughingstock: so why is he tempted to revive an affair that almost began so long ago, on one scandalous evening?
