Dr. Garrett Gibson, the only female physician in England, is as daring and independent as any man—why not take her pleasures like one? Yet she has never been tempted to embark on an affair, until now. Ethan Ransom, a former detective for Scotland Yard, is as gallant as he is secretive, a rumored assassin whose true loyalties are a mystery. For one exhilarating night, they give in to their potent attraction before becoming strangers again.
A man who breaks every rule
As a Ravenel by-blow spurned by his father, Ethan has little interest in polite society, yet he is captivated by the bold and beautiful Garrett. Despite their vow to resist each other after that sublime night, she is soon drawn into his most dangerous assignment yet. When the mission goes wrong, it will take all of Garrett’s skill and courage to save him. As they face the menace of a treacherous government plot, Ethan is willing to take any risk for the love of the most extraordinary woman he’s ever known.

I can’t tell you how happy I was to get my hands on this book. I love all of Kleypas’ historical romances and this one is especially close to my heart.
Garrett is an extrodinary woman. She’s worked hard as the first female doctor in England and has to endure extensive pressures and prejudices. She’s also a little social awkward. I loved everything about her, her tenacity and her toughness, as well as her innocence.
Ethan was also rather intriguing, and interesting to get to know, given his connections to the Ravenels. His stoicism and honor, as well as his love and respect for Garrett, really tugged at my heart.
Lisa Kleypas once again delivers on a beautiful romance, complete with atypical, engaging characters and a fast-paced plot, while also feeding your need for adventure, mystery, and need to keep up to date on past characters. I can’t wait to get to West’s book!
