Bestselling author Jane Feather brings to life the glamour, sophistication, and intrigue of Regency-era London in this captivating novel of unexpected passions and dangerous secrets.

Pooling their meager resources, Lady Cornelia Dagenham, her sister-in-law Aurelia, and their friend Liv Lacey arrive in London's Cavendish Square to spend a month at the home Liv has just inherited. But why anyone would show a fervent interest in purchasing the rundown property -- particularly the arrogant Viscount Bonham, who clearly could afford the finest of homes -- is a puzzle to Cornelia. His charms are undeniable, though -- and Cornelia finds her resistance to this mysterious stranger falling away...as a sparking passion clouds her view.

But their affair may place her and her friends in danger as Harry Bonham sweeps her into the sparkling whirl of high society. Leading a double life as a code breaker for the Crown, Harry is a man of many secrets. Is it Cornelia whom he truly desires, or something hidden in the house on Cavendish Square?

21/11 - Really sweet, mostly innocent romance. The romance itself is not particularly steamy, the heroine is a countrified widow with 2 young children who comes to London to chaperone a similarily aged friend while she views a newly inherited house. The hero works for the war office, mostly dealing with spies and codes; he's strong and muscular and supposedly good in a fight, but we've yet to see him have to exert any real energy in that way. Everything is pretty tame, the bad guys (the French and Russian spies who are on the opposite side to Harry) aren't very bad, Harry and Cornelia (the hero and heroine) aren't very sexy (except supposedly, to each other), but despite that I am enjoying this light-hearted story. There's nothing to offend or upset anyone's sensibilities, normal sex (what's normal, well, if you're a romance fan, you'll know what I mean) and no real violence.
