In high society England, gossip and scandal are traded over afternoon tea and the country is awash with rumour.
In Lady Hester's opinion, it's just typical that the wickedest gossip of all focuses on her beautiful, impossible husband Crow. Damaged aristocrat, soldier, spy, Crow loves Hester fiercely, but he has a wild past and rumours of a child with his black hair and grey eyes wound Hester more deeply than she is willing to admit. And yet London blazes with a far more lethal whispering campaign that threatens the safety of their own little daughter, Morwenna. Crow's enemies want him tried for treason and soon Morwenna herself is in mortal danger. Hester may love Crow as much as he loves her, but now their baby's life is at risk. There's nothing she won't do to protect their child. So when clever, worldly-wise Countess Lieven drops her guard and says, 'Run... take your baby, Hester, and run,' Hester does exactly that.
Accused of high treason, Crow will do anything to save Hester and Morwenna, even if that means accepting a final mission that might just end in losing them both for good.
