The shiniest diamond of the Ton Lady Elena Morrow awakens in a strange room with no idea how she got there from the theater and why the most roguish rake of the Ton Randolph “Raven” Raines, Viscount Andrews shares the bed with her. He awakens as confused by what has happened to him and why he is sharing a bed with Lord Whitbridge’s daughter. After initially bickering over marriage in which they agree not, the pair finds they are locked inside a room with no means of escape.

Her family wants her back safe, sound and scandal free. However, they fear the Ton will notice that not just Elena is missing but Ran the rake is missing at the same time. Elena’s father pleads with Lord Benjamin Wallace, known for resolving political problems, to find his beloved daughter. Though outside his expertise, Benjamin agrees to help the distraught uncle of his wife Alicia, who resolves to have a marriage of love and passion in and out of the boudoir. As time runs out, the incarnated couple falls in love.

This Whispers of Scandal Regency romance is a fabulous brisk historical as the ultimate extreme matchmaker deploys a daring diabolical scheme. Fast-paced with two delightful romances, readers will enjoy Benjamin’s investigation as he falls in love with his wife and the subject of his search also do the same thing with each other. Though he and Ran thank their anonymous benefactor for opening their eyes and hearts, Benjamin also now dreads the infamous words “You have a visitor.”
