With her husband's dying words, "My marchioness has it," the Marchioness of Huntingdon is thrown into a nightmare of intrigue and danger. But even those who are holding her brother ransom can't force her to do the impossible - hand over a necklace she doesn't have.
Major Samuel Bennett believes the newly widowed Lady Claire Huntingdon is a traitor. He intends to get the necklace he's convinced she has, before sending her to the gallows. But when he meets the captivating widow, he discovers that nothing is as it seems.
Claire knows she can't trust anyone, but she isn't given a choice when Major Bennett arrives, demanding she give him the necklace. And it isn't until she's forced to put her life in his hands that she realizes it isn't only her life she's in danger of losing - but her heart as well.

Very fast paced, action filled. historical romantic spy story.
The heroine endured much, but fought not to be a victim. A lot of serious issues were address, such as love, honor, duty, honesty and trust, but this was done so skillfully and effortlessly you were kept engrossed in the smooth flowing of the story.
It captured my attention and interest all the way through.
Read and enjoy.
Though Rosalyn Landor gives her usual brilliant performance, there's not much one can do when the plot holes are so big that a coach and four can be driven though. The hero is an awfully sloppy spy, the heroine clueless, the mystery resolved thinly. I do not recommend.
My favorite way to get my reading fix when I am on the move
This has got to be one of my favorites of all my audiobooks and possibly the most suspenseful.
Narrator was so pompous, annoying and, at times, so difficult to understand that I deleted the audio version before the end of the first chapter. I may go back and read the book later but completely put off it for now.
OMG..the heroe in this story was horrible, always judging the heroine and making her feel less than a bug. I have around 80 audible books, and this is the first time I could not stand the main male character. Couldn't finish the book, he didn't deserve her.
I normally like books by Laura Landon but even Rosalyn Landor wasn't able to make me like this book. IDK, when I think of someone working undercover for the crown I would expect them to be intelligent. The hero kept jumping to conclusions to the point it was beyond annoying. I seriously struggled to finish the book. Guess I need a break from characters with insecurities.
I love losing myself in books of any kind
Not sure I can understand how some whom is supposed to be a spy is so dumb. In the first 10 chapters the Hero excuses the Heroine of sleeping with the enemy her, brother and her dead husband all the while he desires her. Ugh save me from dense men whom have power.
