Synopses & Reviews
Lord Thorpe's new business partner is not what he expected. With her billowy black hair and creamy skin, Alexandra Ward is stunningly beautiful, brashly outspoken and the perfect image of a wealthy woman long thought dead.
Straight from America, Alexandra finds London fraught with danger. Her appearance on Thorpe's arm sends shock rippling through society and arouses hushed whispers: is she a schemer in search of a dead woman's fortune, or an innocent caught up in circumstances that she doesn't understand?
Someone knows the truth, someone who doesn't want Alexandra to live long enough to learn anything. Only Lord Thorpe can help her now—if he can overcome his own suspicions.
Raised in America and unaware of her British birthright, Alexandra visits England, where she uncovers her history and fights an attraction to the emotionally wounded Lord Thorpe. Meanwhile, a cousin is out to make sure Alexandra doesn't live to claim her rightful inheritance.
