And she's been perfectly capable of keeping them...until now. When she's threatened with exposure, she turns to investigator Benjamin Hazlit to keep catastrophe at bay. But Maggie herself intrigues Benjamin more than the riddle she's set him to solve. As he uncovers more and more of her past, Maggie struggles to keep him at a distance, until they both begin to discover the truth in their hearts...
(Terra's Thoughts) The Windham family that Grace Burrowes has developed with us along a wonderful series is one you won't soon forget. You develop a personal attachment to each and every character from the very first line of the story. This is one family I hope just keeps on going and going for a long while to come.
Lady Maggie Windham is the bastard daughter of the Duke of Windham but she is still treated as preciously as each and every one of his other children. She is the rock pillar of the older siblings and just keeps on giving and giving with no expectations of anything in return. She truly has all she needs....Love of a Family.
Our dear Maggie has a deep secret though that has been plaguing her for some years and it's presence in her life is becoming more taxing than any one person should have to contend with. Maggie's desperation after a precious article becomes lost has her hiring the services of the best investigator in London....Mr. Benjamin Hazlit.
There is a slight problem here that Maggie doesn't foresee at the moment and that is 1., will she be able to keep her secret even from London's best investigator and 2., will she be able to shield her heart from a man whose best intentions can't keep him from secreting out even the most hidden of secrets?
I love this story along with each and everyone of Grace Burrowes stories to date. It's like I just can't help myself especially when it comes to an author that graces us with story lines that are near and dear to our hearts as well as a style of writing that is sheer art within itself. Thank you Grace Burrowes!!
