Book One in Holt Sisters trilogy
London's belle of the ball, Susannah Makepeace is the last person who should suddenly be penniless, jilted, and stuck in the sleepy village of Barnstable. But then she would never have seen a man swimming naked in a pond. Or been unable to resist the urge to draw every single bit of him in astonishing detail!
Very few people know that Viscount Kit Whitelaw is the best spy in His Majesty's secret service. But his high-flying life of wine and women has finally banished him from London. Not to worry-if Susannah's erotic sketches are any indication of her nature, she'll be a delicious stand-in for the rush and danger of espionage.
When odd accidents follow in Susannah's wake and an ex-fiancé pops up with a most improper proposal, Kit's spy senses start tingling. For what better mystery is there for England's greatest spy than the secrets of the delectable puzzle that is Susannah?
