Two friends reunite – and discover hidden feelings – while investigating a murder in this sensual, witty historical romance perfect for fans of Evie Dunmore and Netflix’s Bridgerton!

Jane Halliwell once dreamed of a home of her own – but those dreams, along with her dowry, died with her father. Now, she works as a governess, preparing her charge for a future no longer within her reach. However, when her employer is murdered during a house party, Jane is forced back into the world of the ton. But stepping in as hostess will require working with the same lord who once broke her girlish heart.

Lord Adrian Fielding was too consumed with his job at the Foreign Office to pay young Jane much heed, but he always considered her a friend. Which is why he’s confounded by her icy demeanour now. More troubling still is his desire to melt the tensions between them. But his mentor’s murder means he must first find the culprit – and ensure Jane’s safety as she manages a house full of foreign dignitaries.

Only Jane insists on joining the investigation and Adrian, despite all his diplomatic skills, finds himself seduced by her sharp wit and sparkling eyes. But with a vicious killer closing in, will it soon be too late for their chance at forever?
