As a spy for the English in the throes of the Napoleonic Wars, Marrok, the Marquis de Condorcet, has a myriad of secrets. When he discovered a woman at the brink of death on his lands, he took a risk in both saving and trusting her, only to discover that she held more secrets than he did. Would risking their lives for each other help them identify her attempted murderer or reveal how dangerous their connection is? Discarded in a ravine and left for dead, Felicite is at the mercy of a dangerous and duplicitous man. He could help her solve who was behind the brutal attack on her life, but not before her involvement with him nearly gets them both killed. The more she learns about her attackers reveals the caverns of intrigue that both pull her closer to Marrok and thrust her into the realization that she is far more suspicious and dangerous than her protector.
