Coming Soon: Once a Husband, Hunt Club Book 6
Look closely. Remember to smile and be polite as I tell you my tale because you don’t want to disappoint me. People who get in my way usually end up dead. Believe me, if there was any other way to set the record straight you’d never know I moved among you. My true face is unfamiliar to all and I always wanted it to stay that way until now.
I have been forced out of the shadows against my better judgment to save the man who never wanted me. Rescuing Lord Bracknell from certain death complicates my life, exposes me, and reveals I’m still breathing to those who shouldn’t know. I could disappear again I suppose, but there’s danger in London and I cannot abandon those I hold dear.
I was once legitimate and the consummate spy for my adopted country. I was very good. I was very wicked too. No one expected a lady in silk and stockings to hide a deadly secret beneath her skirts, luring potential lovers into the shadows to deliver death on command.
Then they ordered my death.
I find that sort of thing very rude. Killing is so permanent and I’ve had my fill of that life too. I’m happy my services are no longer required, but I’m not free of the past that tugs at my black little heart.
Innocence must be protected. I’m going to have to get involved, and Lord Bracknell must trust me if we have any chance of surviving this together.
