Lady Henrietta Galbraith had always thought of herself as calm and level-headed, but the death of her fiance at her betrothal ball threatened to overset her completely. Though she'd had little regard for Cousin Desmond she never dreamed she would find herself in the midst of a murder investigation -- as the primary suspect! Only Cousin Roland had more of a motive then herself. Recently arrived from India, he claimed no interest in the family fortune, but there was no telling what sinister intentions lay hidden beneath his darkly handsome countenance and mysterious manner. There was no denying the attraction she felt for this man, but if she gave him her heart would she lose her life as well? Intriguing Desire -- It was unfortunate that he had returned from India just in time to see Desmond die, but Roland wouldn't pretend he was griefstricken over the loss. His exile abroad had been Desmond's doing after all. But the idea of a murderer on the loose was another matter indeed. and Roland was determined to find the culprit -- if only to protect the enchanting Lady Henrietta. The green-eyed minx he remembered from his youth had grown up quite delightfully. And now he would do everything in his power to keep Netta from harm... even if that meant keeping her for himself?
