(From the publisher):
Napoleon lusted for her fortune while Paris swooned at her feet. Adelaide de Chevenoy, claimant to the de Chevenoy fortune, captivated jaded Parisians with her fresh beauty and mysterious past. No one suspected that the newly returned heiress was really Lily D'Artiers Copeland, Adelaide's dazzling double, sent by the British government to retrieve a cache of priceless journals. At her side was the aristocratic adventurer who had lured her into spying, a man she'd spent her whole life trying not to love...
Bold, dashing Webb Dryden remembered the reckless hoyden who'd pursued him as a child. But this Lily, transformed into a woman who stole his breath away seemed frustratingly indifferent to his charms. Posing as her fiancÚ, Webb planned to work undercover, but Lily's brazen ways commanded the attention of Napoleon's intrigue-filled court. Suddenly Lily was more than Webb bargained for, a beauty who touched his heart and haunted his dreams, inciting passions that imperiled their very lives...
