By Katherine Ashe

 

Lady Constance Read is a lady of danger and innocence, an enigma of vulnerability and invincibility. When her eyes meet Saint Sterling’s she finds what’s been missing from her life, unfortunately as an heiress and lady of consequence Saint is forbidden to her.

Six years, a dead betrothed, intrigue and loneliness, Lady Constance joins her father in Scotland, she needs a husband. Determined to learn about the disappearance of two young women she is willing to sacrifice herself to learn what happened to them.

When her father hires a fencing master to prepare her for the dangers that threaten her, Constance comes face to face with the man of her dreams. When her world spins out of control can she keep the one thing she wants more than riches or even her own life? Can she keep the man she loves?

Katharine Ashe pushes readers into the dangerous world of mystery, intrigue and adventure as The Falcon Club’s members put themselves into the fray in order to find missing persons and uncover mysteries. Constance’s story of a lonely, beautiful, rich girl in love with a penniless soldier she cannot have; the battle they fight to save each other and the missing girls and the battle they fight within themselves. This intense story rips you apart and pulls you back together, makes you fall in love and breaks your heart. The story is one of the most adventurous and exciting I’ve read in a very long time. I loved the strength and courage of these heroes and the flaws that make them believable. Seeing them fall in love, fight, reunite and unravel the tangled threads of threats, fear and power that are woven in this unique historical tapestry Ms. Ashe has created.
