Ash, recently returned from three years undercover in France in His Majesty's service, wants nothing more than to complete his final mission and retire to his bucolic country estate. However, what seemed a simple assignment to protect the Prince Regent at a Christmas party turns into a maze of intrigue, desire, and treachery. Adding to the perilous secret operation is one problem Ash never anticipated: the appearance of the reckless, enticing Gwyneth, who has blossomed into a gorgeous woman and self-appointed spy. When a snooping Gwyneth uncovers a shocking secret, she puts herself in mortal danger. Can Ash protect Gwyneth and the Prince from French assailants and, at the same time, win the passionate Lady's heart? Can Ash and Gwyneth both triumph in the game of spies and love?
