“One of the freshest voices in the Regency genre.”—Rave Reviews

But when she starts rummaging through the old reprobate’s account books, she discovers that the man she despised had plenty to hide. Starting with a slew of affairs—and 12 illegitimate children.
Mina vows to track down the orphans, and give them a home. Then she discovers that her own son—whom she thought dead at birth—may still be alive. With the help of handsome Lord Lowell, she embarks on a search that will risk her life and her heart.
