Visiting friends in Mississippi, Lady Eva Sparrow hoped to escape the tedium of London societyís social calendar. Instead she is appalled by the slavery she finds in the South. Though she is a British citizen, her heart demands that she do something to improve the slavesí lot. But little does the lady imagine she has the tools for espionage, the influence to turn the tide of a grand Confederate plot--and the courage to root out a rebel assassin.
Texan Ryder Drake works for President Lincoln, setting up a network of spies across the Confederacy. Seeking Britainís support, Ryder is introduced to Lady Eva, who has powerful political connections in London. But unwilling to trust the fate of the Union to a silly socialite, he dismisses the lovely lady--until her sharp wit and intelligence win him over...head and heart. And though Eva is no innocent, just one dangerous glance from Ryder sets her pulse racing--and her spirit ready to risk everything to help him infiltrate societyís highest circles.
