When a mysterious lady, her face hidden by a black veil, begs Gabriel Cynster for his help, he cannot refuse her plea.

For despite her disguise, Gabriel finds the woman alluring and he is powerless to deny her.

But he exacts payment as only a Cynster would demand: with each piece of information he uncovers, she must pay him in the form of a kiss.

Lady Alathea Morwellan knows Gabriel is intrigued, but despite the sparks that fly between them, they have never passed a civil moment together.

Yet as the stakes get higher, so does Gabriel's desire for payment. And with each overpowering kiss, each passionate embrace, Alathea knows that she will not be able to resist his ultimate seduction...but what will happen when she reveals the truth?

Review by

I was very entertained by this story of a woman insulted by a man's attitude to her but who needs his help to fix a problem with a scam. Althea Morwellan needs Gabriel Cynster's help, so disguised as a veiled widow she enlists his help. As the widow countess she falls in love, and he falls for her. Will he also love the woman behind the veil? Or will he let their old emnity continue.It's interesting and fun, I enjoyed it hugely. There's nothing deep here but I had a fun read.
