Searching for the Truth
Lady Sirena Hollister has lost her family, her home, and even her fey abilities, but somehow the fairies have handed her an unexpected chance at a Season in London. From her place on the fringes of high society, she resolves to find the truth about her only brother’s vanishing, and settle her family’s score with the wily English Spy Lord, the Earl of Shaldon. Soon enough, her schemes stir up an unknown enemy…and spark danger of a different sort, in the person of the Earl’s handsome heir, Viscount Bakeley.
Seducing the Beauty
The impertinent hoyden Bakeley met years earlier was as wild as her Irish roots, and just as unlucky. And she’s still an Irish traitor’s sister! But Lady Sirena has grown into a beauty whose charm and courage intrigue him. When danger threatens, Bakeley comes to her rescue, risking scandal, the ton’s disapproval, his interfering father’s ire…and his own heart.
Sirena hurried into the tiny room they used as a kitchen, greeted Molly, their maid of all work, and dropped her basket. Her heart galloped like Bakeley’s horse must have done that morning before his master stopped her on the street.
She’d not lost her gift after all. She’d not lost it, and Bakeley’s horse proved it. That dappled nose had drawn calm from her and stirred up a memory of Pooka. Perhaps that gelding was Pooka’s issue, though in truth, that sort of coloring was common enough.
Her breath hitched. And how was Pooka? Bakeley had made his poor lathered fellow stand waiting in the morning’s cold air. Was he careless of his cattle?
Or was he just that taken with her?
“What happened, my lady?” Molly asked. “Ye’re pale about the gills.”
She forced a laugh. “’Tis the stench of this city, Molly. Will I ever get used to it?”READ MORE
“Nay, nor will I.” Molly reached for the basket. “A turnip. How ever did you know I was wanting one for the stew? A fey one you are, my lady.”
Sirena laughed and shooed her away. “A lucky guess.”
It hadn’t been lucky at all, drawing a rich lord’s attention, in the street, of all places. She went about the preparations for Lady Jane’s breakfast, letting her overcharged heart cool.
How far had he followed her? How much had he seen?
Jamie, her brother, was lost to the world, but not to her. She’d never truly believed it before, and she didn’t believe it now.COLLAPSE
