Tess, Lady Golding, lost everything three years ago when her husband gambled away her inheritance and his own, cheated at cards and lost a duel. The head of the Foreign Office took advantage of that, turning her into one of his best spies. Now he is asking her to spy on her friends.

Heath Bartlett, the son of a tutor, has worked his way up the ladder to a prominent position with the Solicitor-General and is courting a young woman from a very well placed family. All he has to do is to prove that his childhood friend Tess has stolen from a relative of his almost fiancé.

Two childhood friends meet again after ten years and find that they might be on different sides. The years have changed both of them and it might not be for the better. Heath cannot believe that Tess is a thief, and though she is suspicious of Heath’s motives in joining her ladies’ society, she has a spy to catch.

The author has created some very memorable characters in this story. Tess and Heath are great lead characters. They both have overcome their pasts to become stronger people. Tess started out as a victim and gained control of her life, and Heath strives to be more than his philandering father. The other characters, Bills the colorful lawyer, Lucy the mute widow, and the other ladies of the society are very well drawn. Reynolds and Tristam Wheaton are very sinister, and the Whilom family is the very worst of snobby society. The plot has many twists and turns to keep the reader interested, as well as some very well crafted and erotic love scenes. The reader will have a hard time putting this one down.
