Isabel Halloran is a Governess for an unsavory family and the illegitimate daughter of the Marquis of Elswick. She saves Michael from being tricked into a forced marriage and from then on love blooms and grows between them as they set out to clear his name, solve a murder and restore her rightful place in society.

Tinker, Tailor, Sailor, Spy . . .
New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell has lived a full and adventurous life. Her resume includes years as a naval officer working with Security Group to time spent managing a watch factory, with a stints as a news broadcaster and work designing costumes for theater productions thrown in for good measure. Today, Cathy spends hours in front of her computer pondering the question, "Why do people fall in love?" It remains for her the great mystery of life and the secret to happiness. She lives in the Richmond, Virginia, area surrounded by kids, dogs, cats, and horses.From Publishers Weekly:
Having fled to the colonies to avoid being framed for murder, Michael Severson returns years later to England to find the real killer in Maxwell's latest Regency confection, a slightly darker entry than her usual fare (Seduction of an English Lady, etc.). Michael needs a way into society if he's to make any headway exonerating himself. At a house party in the country, the perfect opportunity presents itself in the form of Miss Isabel Halloran, a governess. The two find themselves in a compromising position from which marriage seems the only escape—but Isabel harbors a secret of her own, and she's not sure she can trust Michael to keep it. The murdered mistress who haunts the lovers weighs down the story, and the central mystery remains underdeveloped until the latter half of the book, when suddenly the secondary characters begin piling up. In addition, the chemistry between the protagonists isn't as convincing as it could be because Maxwell too often tells rather than shows their attraction. Still, the author's fans will warm to her appealing protagonists, even if there isn't much to distinguish this effort from the many other Regency mystery-romances crowding bookstore shelves.
