John Haldane, Earl of Strathairn, is on an urgent mission to find the killer of his fellow spy. After visiting the young widow of one of his agents, Strathairn strengthens his resolve. A spy should never marry, and most certainly not to Lady Sibella Winborne, with her romantic ideas of love and marriage. Unable to give Sibella up entirely, he has kept her close as a friend. Then, weak fool that he is, he kissed her.
Lady Sibella Winborne has refused several offers of marriage since she first set eyes on the handsome Earl of Strathairn. Sibella’s many siblings always rush to her aid to discourage an ardent suitor, but not this time. Her elder brother, Chaloner, Marquess of Brandreth, has approved Lord Coombe’s suit.  Sibella yearns to set up her own household. She is known to be the sensible member of the family, but she doesn’t feel at all sensible about Lord Strathairn. If only she could forget that kiss.

Sibella’s brother Edward stood at her shoulder. “I’ve come to claim you for the next dance, before any of your admirers beat me to it.”


“I shouldn’t worry, many are losing interest,” she said crisply, rising from her chair.


He eyed her as they entered the dance floor. “Losing hope, more like.”


As they moved through the steps of the quadrille, he dropped quiet remarks in her ear.


“Give up on Strathairn, Sib.”


“I don’t believe, I—” They parted, and by the time the steps brought them back together, she’d given up protesting. Edward had inherited their mother’s astute nature.


“It’s not that I don’t like him. I do very much. But he’s not for you.”


“You needn’t worry. He doesn’t wish to marry.”


Her brother raised a black eyebrow. “Oh, I believe you could sway him toward marriage, if you set your mind to it. That’s not the reason.”


“Then what is the reason?”


“Chaloner hears things in the House of Lords. I can’t repeat them.”


“So he tells you but not me.”


Edward shrugged with a smile and moved away.


“Why does such mystery surround the Earl of Strathairn?” she hissed at him when she next got a chance.


He shook his head. She’d learn no more.
