Pippa Ingleside will do anything to escape her ruthless uncle, but even she is surprised when her previously dormant powers aid her. Surprised and afraid. Her newly discovered abilities may have saved her but they condemn her at the same time. 

Disguised as a boy, she travels to the home of Lord Ashbourne to find her one and only friend. To maintain her disguise and put a roof over her head, Pippa accepts a job as page of the wardrobe to Ash, a man as mysterious as he is dangerous. If he discovers her lie, he'll send her back to her uncle and her witchcraft will be exposed to the authorities. 

As the lies build it gets harder for Pippa to maintain her disguise, especially when she falls in love with the man she must serve. 

Her only hope is to find her friend. But when the friend is murdered, Ash investigates and where he goes, his page goes too. Together they uncover a web of secrets that could destroy Ash and condemn Pippa. But that's nothing compared to what happens when he discovers she's a woman…

REVIEWS 

This story was quick to grab my interest, and I remained enraptured as it unfolded page after page. I thought it was uncommonly well conceived and beautifully constructed. Nick is an outstanding love match for Isabel...In short, I loved this story and look forward to the next book in the series. ~ 5 "cups" from Coffee Time Romance & More 

I could not put down Honor Bound. Isabel is a strong woman in a time where men ran the world and all those in it...you shouldn't hesitate to read this book. ~ rated A (a keeper) at Once Upon A Chapter reviews 

DESCRIPTION 

7 years ago a woman with too many secrets and a man with too many lies fell in love. Then she left him. 

Isabel's quiet life as an assistant to one of London's famous apothecaries hides a deadly secret. A secret that could see her put on trial for witchcraft if the authorities uncover the truth. But when the authority figure who turns up at her shop is Sir Nicholas Merritt, she's at risk of losing more than her life. She could lose her heart and soul, and the man she loves. 

Royal spy Sir Nicholas Merritt can't believe his luck when he stumbles upon Isabel during an investigation. He's been searching for her for seven long years and now he has her again, in his bed and his life. Except she's resisting all the way. Worse still, she's somehow tangled up with a plot to assassinate the queen. To hold onto her this time, he must find out why she left him while hiding a secret of his own that could tear them apart forever.
