Synopses & Reviews
When Captain Scorer died in action, his wife Eve was obliged to seek refuge with her cousin Julia. Treated as a poor relation and pursued by Julia's admirer, Eve is thankful when escape is offered through the bequest of a bookshop in Clerkenwell. She has no knowledge that Colonel Jason 'Blazes' Ballantyne, her husband's commanding officer, has been ordered by William Pitt to make enquiries concerning a codebook that has been left in the bookshop by French spies. When certain incidents and rumors convince Jason that Eve has a dubious reputation, it doesn't prevent attraction flaring between them...
