Is the man she must now deceive: Gavin Graham has never known a woman whose passion for intrigue matched his own until Laura comes barreling back into his life, plunging herself headlong into a perilous investigation.

I don't know who wrote the blurb, but they obviously hadn't read the first chapters. I had debated on the book and would have picked it up sooner if the blurb had been more accurate. Sophie has spent 10 years hiding in plain sight as a governess after her father lost his money in horses, which is all he cares about. Graham proposed 10 years ago for the money; she refused. He was sent into foreign service and became a spy. They are brought together at the Congress of Vienna where Sophie wants to have a purpose and Graham's purpose is alternatively to avoid and , he believes, to rescue her.
