Publisher's Summary

Annabelle Carruthers can only dream of being kissed by a man as dashing as Lord Darkwood. She remains locked in misery - married to a rakish drunk who gambles their lives into financial and social ruin.

His sudden death - and rumors of spies and treachery - only make matters worse. Burdened with gambling debts, Annabelle fears she is on her way to the poorhouse. The only solution she can see is to offer herself up as mistress to the mysterious Lord Darkwood!

Darkwood, however, is too much of a gentleman to take advantage of a lady such as Annabelle. Still, he is quite interested in rumors of her husband's espionage - a curiosity that will soon place them both in grave danger.

Inconsistent confusing storyline

Annabelle goes from Lord Darkwood making her feel wonderful offering to be his mistress, upset that he leaves her after making out with her not going further, and then is scared on her wedding night. It's inconsistent and confusing. Annabelle's character is not very well developed.This one left me feeling a
little flat.
