A daring charade could reunite a husband and wife in award-winning author Elizabeth Mansfield's sparkling Regency romance.
After nearly losing his life at the battle of Waterloo, Captain Alexander Tyrrell, earl of Braeburn, comes home to the shocking news that he is still married. Braving enemy fire is nothing compared to having to see the duplicitous Priscilla Vickers again.
Priss has waited six years to be reunited with the man she loves. But her husband believes her guilty of the worst kind of betrayal. And nothing she says or does will convince him that Sir Blake Edmonds isn't her illicit lover. It will take a daring deception - and a scheming minx who has set her cap for Alec - for these two people to realize how much they have lost and how much they could gain if they were to find the courage to turn a sham union into a second chance for happiness.
