A Note from MK

Dearest Reader,


This book was, to say the least, a journey. What began as a story I started more than ten years prior to publication, ended with a love for characters to whom I wasn't willing to say goodbye. Alaina is as I believe heroines should be—strong, resilient, and ladylike. Of course she has a few flaws, but who doesn't. Tristan is a gentleman hero, but he's not concerned about doing what others expect, and I love him for that. I hope you enjoy Alaina and Tristan's journey of romance and mystery.


Why did I make a duke a British Agent when they had no occupation in the standard sense? It’s quite simple. Because I saw a man who although trapped by his station in life, wanted to be known as someone and something else . . . and so he was.


Happy Reading,

~ Mk
