NO MISSION HAD EVER BEEN AS TEMPTING... When Kathryn St. David arrives in London for a season under her formidable aunt Ophelia's patronage, her first surprise is a masked ball in honor of her arrival--and the second is dashingly handsome--and impossibly forward--Nigel Moorhaven, Marquis of Blackshire. Yet Kathryn has no chance to give the man more than an anonymous set-down in her disguise as a fairy queen. Aunt Ophelia has lost a diary containing scandalous secrets, and she intends to dispatch Kathryn to Lady Marchman's School for Young Ladies to find it! Kathryn's mission seems simple--until Nigel visits his resident niece and takes an interest in Kathryn instead.
Covert operative Nigel Moorhaven--code name, the Blue Devil--has never seriously considered matrimony. And now that one spirited young woman has finally caught his eye, she's disappeared from society! But Nigel has no time to ponder his bad luck, for his investigation of a possible spy at Lady Marchman's academy must continue. Yet her newest pupil's impudent charm--so like the elusive fairy queen's--is a constant distraction! Determined to unravel the mystery of both identities, Nigel begins to suspect that he has lost his heart to just one very special woman.
