Description
Stefanie Sloane's intoxicating series of rogues and romance continues as a handsome spy falls for a woman who proves quite dangerous—to his heart.

Though resolute and driven by nature, dedicated spymaster Langdon Bourne has lost his way. Even his passion for his secret organization, the Young Corinthians, has waned—until he is assigned a mission with the potential to finally bring about the peace that has eluded him for nearly two decades. But to eliminate a brilliant, dangerous nemesis, Langdon needs the help of a woman whose loyalties are most uncertain.

Grace Crowther ignores the rumors that persist after the death of her husband, a merciless doctor who won her in a card game. Is she truly the black widow that many believe? One look at her angelic face and one glimpse into her heavy heart tells Langdon all he needs to know about Grace—and his own deepest desires. He needs Grace, if he's to have any chance of tracking down the leader of the nefarious gang known as the Kingsmen. And he wants her desperately, enough to forget the rules of a good spy and take risks no ordinary man would dare. For Grace has no reason to trust Langdon, or to help him. But somewhere deep inside she knows that he is the answer to her prayers.

      • bioText:

        A native Northwesterner with the pale skin to prove it, Stefanie Sloane credits her parents' eclectic reading habits--not to mention their decision to live in the middle of nowhere--for her love of books. A childhood spent lost in the pages of countless novels led Sloane to college, where she majored in English. No one was more surprised than Sloane when she actually put her degree to use and landed a job in Amazon.com's editorial department. She spent more than five years reading for a living before retiring to concentrate on her own stories. Stefanie Sloane lives with her family in Seattle.

        March 15, 2014
        The sixth in Sloane's Regency Rogue series, after The Scoundrel Takes a Bride (2013), finds the Earl of Stonecliffe, Langdon Bourne, bereft since Sophia, the woman he thought he loved, married his brother. Langdon still has his place in the Young Corinthians, a secret spy organization, and a mission, to find the man called the King, head of the infamous Kingsmen, who ordered the death of Sophia's mother. Rumor has it that Grace Crowther, whose husband has also been murdered, holds the key to the King's identity, which means both sides want her. But when Langdon meets Grace, he instantly falls for her, as she does for him, and he vows to protect the vulnerable woman. The King has ordered Grace's death, however, so Langdon knows an ultimate battle between himself and the King as well as between the Kingsmen and the Young Corinthians is inevitable. Sloane pulls out all the stops with plots and counterplots leading up to the unmasking and defeat of the ultimate villain, rounding out the series on a high note.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2014, American Library Association.)
