Summary
In Regency London, a woman escapes from a burning warehouse only to realize she doesn't know her own identity. Although the locket around her neck bears the name Miranda, she has no recollection of her past
Summary
When Ian MacVane, a Scot employed by England's spymaster, rescues her from a burning warehouse, Miranda Stonecypher has no memory of who she is and why she was there. In reality, she is a feminist and a scholar, and a woman in a great deal of danger. MacVane has been told she is a spy, the holder of a secret that will effect Napoleon's escape from Elba, but his intuition tells him otherwise. He expected to seduce her to discover her secrets but, in fact, Miranda's memory remains locked. Only after several attempts on her life and the return of her erstwhile lover Lord Lucas Chesney, is she able to piece together the fragments and remember the plan she overheard. By then, it may be too late to save her life, as well as Ian's, and their love. More historical personages and details than in many Regencies place this between the less sensual, more political novels of Monique Ellis and Judith A. Lansdowne and the racier novels of Amanda Quick, which focus more on romance and the ton. -- Description by: Joyce Saricks
