Description

Sebastian Cynster knows time is running out. If he doesn't choose a wife soon, his female relatives will line up to assist him. Yet the current debutantes do not appeal. Where is he to find the right lady to be his marchioness? Then Drake Varisey, eldest son of the Duke of Wolverstone, asks for Sebastian's aid.

Having assumed his father's mantle in protecting queen and country, Drake must go to Ireland in pursuit of a dangerous plot. But he's received an urgent missive from Lord Ennis, an Irish peer—Ennis has heard something Drake needs to know and insists Drake attend an upcoming house party at his Kent estate so he can reveal his information face-to-face.

Sebastian has assisted Drake before and, long ago, had a liaison with Lady Ennis. Drake insists Sebastian is just the man to be his surrogate at the house party—the guests will imagine all manner of possibilities and be blind to Sebastian's true purpose.

His first task is to inveigle Antonia Rawlings, a lady he has known all her life, to include him as her escort to the house party. Although he's seen little of Antonia in recent years, Sebastian is confident of gaining her support.

Eldest daughter of the Earl of Chillingworth, Antonia has abandoned the search for a husband and plans to use the week of the house party to decide what to do with her life. Consequently, on hearing Sebastian's request and an explanation of what lies behind it, she seizes on the call to action.

But while joining the house party proves easy, the gathering is thrown into chaos when Lord Ennis is murdered—just before he was to speak with Sebastian. Worse, Ennis's last words, gasped to Sebastian, are "Gunpowder. Here." Gunpowder? And here? Where?

With a killer continuing to stalk the halls, side by side, Sebastian and Antonia search for answers, and all the while, the childhood connection that has always existed between them strengthens and blooms into something so much more.

She subsequently introduced the equally unforgettable members of the Bastion Club, as well as several other series. Currently living outside Melbourne, Australia, with her husband and two cats, she has been writing historical romance novels in her signature "Errol Flynn meets Jane Austen" style for more than twenty years.

      • content: On a mission for the Crown, Lord Sebastian Cynster enlists family friend Lady Antonia to help him get vital information. In this gothic mystery, narrator Matthew Brenher enfolds the listener into manor life and the workings of Cynster's investigation. His crisp speech and British and Irish accents delineate the characters' personalities. Sebastian's haughty tone exudes his confidence and powerful rank. Brenher's portrayal of Antonia captures her intelligence through soft, controlled speech, making her a woman who demands respect. His presentation of their steamy interludes is brought to a fever pitch with intensity and class. Fans of Stephanie Laurens will be eager to reconnect with the popular Cynster family as this mystery continues in the next book. S.H. � AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine
