Synopses & Reviews
A diabolical traitor who's always out of reach...
England, 1814. Lady Arianna Hadley and her husband, the Earl of Saybrook, want nothing more than to savor a quiet life embellished by the occasional cup of the finest chocolate.

In a laboratory in Scotland, they discover the coprse of a chemistry professor--and cryptic papers hinting at a dangerous new discovery now in enemy hands. Racing against time, Arianna and Saybrook pursue their most cunning and dangerous adversary yet through a complex network of intrigue involving exotic chocolates, daredevil aviators, a missing inventor, and a secret recipe that must be recovered at any cost...
INCLUDES CHOCOLATE RECIPES AND TRIVIA!
Lady Arianna's gift of a rare volume of botanical engravings to her husband, the Earl of Saybrook, has something even more rare hidden inside-sensitive government documents which would mark one they hold dear as a traitor of King and country. To unmask the villain, they must root out a cunning conspiracy-armed only with their wits and expertise in chocolate...
About the Author
Andrea Penrose created her first book at age five—a neatly penciled story lavishly illustrated with drawings of horses and cowboys. She has since moved on from the wild and woolly Old West to the grit and glamour of Regency England.
A graduate of Yale University, Penrose loves exploring London, where the myriad offbeat museums and funky antique markets offer a wealth of inspiration for her stories.
