<h2>'It's pretty hard to pull off a good Georgette Heyer homage, but Moran makes it look easy' <i>i News</i></h2><p><b>In a <i>Bridgerton</i>-style Regency world, three people are caught in a web of passion and deceit.</b></p><p>Fontainebleau in 1825 is a glittering international court, rich with intrigue, passion and simmering violence. Lieutenant Colonel Kit Helford must navigate these treacherous waters to deliver the beautiful, self-destructive Princess Royal to her prospective husband. Kit's childhood friend, Clemency Arwenack, is tasked with safeguarding her royal mistress's reputation as the princess awaits a marriage she is dreading.</p><p>But both have secrets they will hide at all costs. Kit is on the run – from a man shot and left for dead back in London and a lifetime of scandal that includes a liaison with the princess herself. He will do anything to salvage his family's reputation. Clemency, meanwhile, conducts a perilous trade in lies and blackmail as she seeks to destroy the princess, not protect her.</p><p>With the princess's life under threat, Kit and Clemency are pitted against each other, even as a dangerous attraction grows between them. The past hunts them both, remorselessly, relentlessly, and neither can escape it for long.</p><h2>'Passionate, smart and action-packed' <b>Sarah Hughes, <i>Guardian</i></b><br />'Lush, dark, utterly real and achingly romantic' <b>Ruth Ware</b></h2>
