On the cliffs of Cornwall: two ladies watch birds at dawn. Below, two naked men are cavorting in the surf. One, the icy Lord Edenstorm, is the very man Lady Juliette hoped never to see again, for only he knows her true identity. One word from him to her brother and she will be locked away or even murdered, all for one foolish, scandalous mistake. Still stinging from her deceitful betrayal years before and wounded by the horrors of his years at war, Edenstorm offers to keep her secret if she helps him catch the traitors who smuggle English gold to Napoleon. Her Cornish friends are smugglers, not traitors. Protecting them endangers her, but betraying them will get them hanged, so Juliette vows to lead Edenstorm’s search astray. But Edenstorm is not the unfeeling man she thought she knew, nor is Juliette the faithless woman he believed her to be. Passion flares and truth surfaces, to unleash dangers they never suspected. Juliette’s safe, quiet life turns into a daring adventure with smugglers, spies, and a secret that could save England from invasion. But is their new love strong enough to overcome their pasts and forgive the sins of the heart?
