This tale of love, suspense, and mystery in Regency England features “a refreshingly different hero and heroine” (Publishers Weekly).
 
After her wealthy merchant father is accused of murder, Elise Rand goes to the only person she knows who can help: Patrick Hamilton, Regency London’s most brilliant trial lawyer. But no amount of cash will convince Patrick to take on what appears to be a doomed case.
 
So a desperate Elise is forced to put her reputation, her sanity, and her heart on the line when she offers a very different method of payment for his legal services: herself . . .
 
“Mills does the historical romance genre proud with her latest offering. Tautly written and packed with suspense, the plot moves along at a brisk pace while engaging the reader in the moving love story of a refreshingly different hero and heroine . . . With a talent for evoking period atmosphere and her knowledge of the Regency underworld, Mills nips at the heels of Anne Perry’s Victorian novels of crime and suspense.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“An insightful and unusual historical that focuses not only on the glittering decadence of Regency upper-class society but also on its sinister criminal elements. Nicely drawn characters, a complex plot, and well-handled language contribute to this satisfying romance.” —Library Journal
