One of Ria's students at Miss Weaver's Academy for Young Ladies has disappeared, and Evan is the only person Ria can think of with the necessary skills to find her. Even though they last saw one another 20 years ago, Ria has heard rumors about Evan's espionage activities. So when Ria discovers that Evan has recently inherited the title of Duke of Westphal, she badgers him into investigating the disappearance of Jane Petty. At first all evidence indicates that Jane left with a young man, but the more time Evan and Ria spend looking into the matter, the more convinced they become that Jane's disappearance is part of a deeper, darker mystery. A cynical hero with a wonderful sense of the absurd meets his match in a delightfully outspoken, unconventional heroine as Goodman continues her Compass Club series with another beguiling tale that beautifully combines sexy romance and dangerous intrigue.
