Christian Hawkes has been released from prison, exchanging his fortune for his release. When the Earl of Brundage asks Christian to find his missing fiancée, the former English spy jumps at the easy way to refill his coffers. Diving into the investigation, Christian begins to sort out where and why Lady Aurelie Capet might have gone, while also taking the opportunity to pursue his long-held instinct that the earl may be dabbling in treason. Between her fear of the earl and her growing desperation, Aurelie finds solace at the Grand Palace on the Thames and among the lovely company, as she attempts to secure passage to Boston. After a mysterious man shows up at the door, bleeding from a stab wound, Aurelie is determined to assist a fellow soul in need. When Christian awakes from the stabbing, he is aware of two things: he has managed to track down Aurelie, and his suspicion about the earl is dangerously correct. As the two, with the help of the Grand Palace regulars, work to secure their freedoms from the earl, they begin to dream of an idyllic future together.
VERDICT With a new set of intriguing circumstances and the familiar cast of charming characters, Long returns to “The Palace of Rogues” series in this fifth welcome visit (following After Dark with the Duke) to the Grand Palace on the Thames.
