9780060517618: The Lady in Question (Effington Family & Friends)

Identical twins, sensible Delia and mischievous Cassandra Effington were the most delicious debutantes to ever waltz across a London ballroom. They looked alike in every way . . . but no one ever expected Delia to be the one to get into trouble . . .

How did this young lady's reputation become so questionable?

Once she was lovely, respectable Miss Delia Effington, but an impulsive decision—and subsequent disaster—forces Delia to retire from society. Until one night, desperate for diversion, she attends a ball as her twin sister and finds herself dancing in the strong arms of the dashing Viscount St. Stephens.

Delia believes she has never met this man who arouses her passions, yet he seems somehow familiar. For Delia doesn't know that St. Stephens, an agent for the Crown, has been in her home, protecting her under the disguise of her butler. What will happen when this lady discovers the truth about the man she has come to love?

About the Author:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander was an award-winning television reporter until she discovered fiction was more fun than real life. She is the author of thirty-one novels, and her books have been translated into more than a dozen languages. Victoria lives in Omaha, Nebraska, with her long-suffering husband and two dogs, in a house under endless renovation and never-ending chaos.

From Publishers Weekly:

A silky weaving of humor and intrigue, Alexander's newest Regency-era romance (following Love with the Proper Husband) launches with the death of Delia Effington's rakehell husband, who was secretly an English spy. The two had been married only a matter of days, and now Delia, widowed and wealthy, finds herself adrift in an unfamiliar house with only a few servants to keep her company. Little does she know that her husband's death put her under government suspicion, and handsome spy Viscount Tony St. Stephens has infiltrated her home in the guise of an elderly butler to protect her and to pry out her secrets. And little does Tony know that he'll fall fast and hard for Delia. Alexander raises the stakes when Delia begins to masquerade as her twin sister, and Tony tosses off his white wig and begins to court Delia. Though the oftentimes dim-witted Delia doesn't ring true as an adventuress and the aristocratic hero/spy character has become a cliche, Alexander's offering showcases the playful prose and seamless storytelling that have turned readers into fans and landed her books on bestseller lists.
