When a spymaster proposes marriage as a cover, it might be madness for a lady to indulge in...
A HUSBAND'S WICKED WAYS
Bestselling author Jane Feather beguiles with this sparkling story of the alluring secrets hidden behind the elegance of Regency London, when a lovely young woman discovers the danger...and delight...of risking everything for love.
Aurelia Farnham believes she is happy living in London's stylish Cavendish Square. But with her friends Livia and Cornelia both married now, Aurelia is the only one still husbandless, and sometimes she longs for more. Then Colonel Sir Greville Falconer storms into her life, delivering a letter from her late husband, a war hero, which reveals he was a spy -- the colonel's spy. Now Greville needs Aurelia to continue the patriotic mission and partner him as he exposes a ring of Spanish spies who have infiltrated London society.
The attentions of the charismatic Greville excite Aurelia as his mock courtship blurs the line between pretense and reality. When the simmering attraction between them ignites into passion and the danger of Aurelia's double life escalates, Greville insists on marriage as the best way to protect her. Now Aurelia realizes she has more than shadowy antagonists to fear, for she's lost her heart to a dashing spymaster who will one day slip away as suddenly as he appeared....

Widow Aurelia Farnham wishes for a better life while raising her precocious daughter. With dreams of economic security, she thrives in the social whirl of London society, thanks to friends who have made love matches with aristocratic men who work undercover in England’s war with France. Then Colonel Sir Greville Falconer tells her that her husband did not die three years ago; he died recently as a spy under the colonel’s direction. Now the colonel wants Aurelia to become his new partner in flushing out Spanish spies who are insinuating themselves in the ton. With the prospect of excitement and funds for her independence, she agrees, never expecting that their cover story, a feigned courtship, would become something more. Or has it? Will Aurelia ever know Greville’s true feelings? This dynamic conclusion to Feather’s Wicked trilogy (A Wicked Gentleman, 2007; To Wed a Wicked Prince, 2008) is filled with recurring quirky characters, truly evil villains, and a fearless heroine who is definitely an equal to her hero. --Patty Engelmann
