Secrets, lies and espionage… can love survive the turmoil of war?

As war rages and their lives are thrown into turmoil, Nicholas grows increasingly distant. And soon Eliza can’t resist the pull of that mysterious man. But with spies infiltrating even the country houses of Kent, and the enemy waiting just across the Channel, nothing is simple.

Torn between passion and duty, Eliza must make her choice. A choice with consequences she can little imagine…
