It seems Meriel-called Merry-looks exactly like the wife of Lord Giles, Earl of Warborough, whose legendary heroism has long sent a thrill down Merry's spine. Giles's cold, unfaithful wife is known to be a spy for the Dutch. Coerced by the British king's spymaster, Merry takes the traitor's place as a double-agent-with the aim of delivering false intelligence to the waiting Dutch.
But Merry's dangerous mission only fans the flames of her smoldering desire for Giles-even as Giles is overtaken by passion for a "wife" who's suddenly become all he ever wanted.

Less than a week after arriving in London, Merry leaps the social ladder from lady's maid to lady. It all happens once the king's spymaster discovers Merry's uncommon likeness to Felice, the Countess of Warborough. It seems that the countess, currently a permanent guest of the Tower, was selling English military secrets to the Dutch. The head of Charles II's spy network hopes to fool the Dutch by substituting Merry for Felice. But Merry must first convince Felice's husband, Giles, that she is his wife. Swept up in a dangerous masquerade, Merry soon finds the most difficult part of her new life is deceiving the man she now loves. A carefully crafted plot, a fascinating historical setting, and two expertly matched protagonists blend brilliantly together in a captivating tale of deception and desire as Westin continues her refreshingly different Restoration series, which began with Lady Anne's Dangerous Man (2006).
