Marry a murderer or end up on the streets, destitute and alone. When spinster and poor relation Mira Fitzhenry’s odious aunt and uncle force her to make a choice straight out of Ann Radcliffe, logical Mira plans to create her own alternative. As Mira falls under the spell of Nicholas Ellerby’s alchemical eyes, however, she discovers that the line between logic and love is not always clear...and a wrong choice may cost Mira her life. Nicholas Ellerby, Viscount Balthazor, can ill-afford a wife who might expose his family secrets or worse, fall victim to them. When his father finds him a bride, Nicholas expects a feather-brained young miss, tepid as tea and malleable as mud, not Mira Fitzhenry. Mira’s cleverness and persistence threaten everything Nicholas holds dear...including his heart.
