Short Synopsis
The first in a new series from Manda Collins features Leonora trying to find out the truth of her brother's death, with help from an unlikely source . . . her former flame, Frederick.

Full Synopsis
Heartbroken by the loss of her brother, Miss Leonora Craven vows to uncover the truth about his "accident," which seems to have been anything but. Jonathan Craven was involved with the Lords of Anarchy, a notorious driving club, and Leonora can't help but suspect foul play. But the only way she can infiltrate their reckless inner circle is to enlist the help of Jonny's closest ally, Lord Frederick Lisle. If only he didn't also happen to be the man who broke Leonora's heart . . .

Frederick isn't surprised to find gorgeous, headstrong Leonora playing detective, but he knows that the Lords of Anarchy mean business—and he has no choice but to protect her. A sham engagement to Leonora will allow Frederick to bring her into the club and along for the ride. But it isn't long before pretending to be lovers leads to very real passion. With everything to lose, is their tempestuous affair worth the risk?

"[T]he chemistry between Nora and Freddy carried the plot." ---On My Shelves

"[Flosnik] makes the men sound aloof, elitist, and oh so properly British and the women sound feminine, mysterious, and proper, even while they're being oh so improper." ---AudioFile

"This is a fresh and promising start to the series." ---Publishers Weekly

"Readers who relish historical romances served up with a generous measure of dangerous intrigue and sizzling sensuality will definitely want to test drive this smartly crafted tale." ---Booklist

"From propriety to impropriety, from the glittering social whirl to the darkness of a hellfire club, Collins brings readers along on a lively hunt for a killer." ---RT Book Reviews
