Description
A young noblewoman flees to London and poses as a servant to evade a murderer in this richly detailed and "compelling" ( Publishers Weekly ) historical novel. A SECRET TREATY AND A SECRET LIFE LONDON, 1812: Giselle Barrington is living a double life, juggling the duties of chef with those of spy catcher. She must identify her father's savage killer before the shadowy man finds her and uncovers the explosive political document her father entrusted to her safekeeping. Posing as a French cook in the home of Lord Aldridge, Giselle is surrounded by unlikely allies and vicious enemies. In the streets where she once walked freely among polite society, she now hides in plain sight, learning the hard lessons of class distinction and negotiating the delicate balance between servant and master. Lord Aldridge's insatiable curiosity about his mysterious new chef blurs the line between civic duty and outright desire. Carefully watching Giselle's every move, he undertakes a mission to figure out who she really is--and, in the process, plunges her straight into the heart of danger when her only hope for survival is to remain invisible.
